About New Plymouth

The district is home to more than 70,000 people and includes many unique tourist attractions that make the city ‘like no other’. Rent a car from Pegasus Rentals in New Plymouth, the easiest way to discover what this region has to offer. New Plymouth is a seaside city centered around its bustling port and cultural core. New Plymouth is fast becoming a lifestyle destination for big-city dwellers keen to escape the urban grind.

Taranaki is home to the best city in New Zealand (according to the North & South Magazine) and the best small city in the world (according to the UN-backed Liveable Communities Awards). Attractions include Pukekura Park which covers 52ha (128 acres) right in the heart of New Plymouth and is one of New Zealand’s premier botanical gardens. A great family attraction is located just a 15 minute drive from the centre of New Plymouth, the Pouakai Zoo where you can hand-feed animals such as Goats, Llama, Cattle, Sheep, Kune Kune Pigs and enjoy all the Bird life roaming the Zoo grounds including Peacocks, Ducks, Pigeons, Emu’s and Ostrich.

If you are wanting to explore the beaches, just under an hour’s drive from New Plymouth you will find Opunake Beach that offers safe swimming, and is home to one of New Zealand’s first artificial surf reefs, providing clean waves only a short walk from the centre of the Opunake township.

Very easy to make the booking on line and when we arrived to pick up the car all of the paper work was ready for signing. They did not even check my licence as details had been given on line.The car was the first time it had been out on hire since its arrival from Japan and was in excellent condition.No problems with it at all during the 10 day hire and it was returned on time, leaving the keys in the box at the desk.Very professional company and would certainly not hesitate to use them again.

Everything went well. We got off the plane and went straight to the Pegasus Desk where the paperwork was done. It was very efficient. We had a medium sized 4 door car which was perfect for us. Today we arrived at the airport, dropped the car key in the return slot. There was no fuss or bother. We would definitely use Pegasus again.
