Great rental car company. Accommodating people. Easy and fast check in and out. Very informative to tourists. Brand new cars. Rest assured that you are well taken cared of. Very good value, about 30% more value vs. Global companies like Hertz / Avis

We hired a car from Pegasus Rentals in Nelson. Katie met us at the Airport and was very helpful in loading our bags into the boot and chatted about Nelson on the way back to base. On our return of the car Sarah took us back to the Airport and she was very helpful also. I would thoroughly recommend Pegasus Nelson to anyone flying into Nelson.

I've used Pegasus Rental Cars several times for business and have found their service to be excellent. They go out of their way to accommodate fast turn around times for airport collection and getting paperwork done quickly. Speaking of paperwork, I would always opt for the insurance waiver with any car rental company. It's not expensive and gives peace of mind. The vehicles from Pegasus are always tidy. I really appreciate the friendly service and would highly recommend.

Excellent and efficient staff member ensuring, that we fully understood what we were signing and being responsible for ensuring that we fully visually checked the vehicle that we were hiring, before it left the premises. The vehicle was very clean and fueled before we took charge if it.On return she ensured to check the condition of the vehicle with us going around it with her.Price was fair and reasonableStaff member was very polite and easy to understand, both before we picked up the vehicle and when we returned it overall a pleasant experience.
