Recently rented a car with Pegasus for our tour of the South Island, New Zealand. Was surprised to get a FREE UPGRADE! Super customer service, lovely new vehicle and at a competitive price. If you need a car in New Zealand, rent with Pegasus. A smaller outfit than the big car rental companies means outstanding personal service. Thank you!

After a great experience with Pegasus in Christchurch, we tried Queenstown. The service there is just as friendly! Our only disappointment is that we lost out SD card - so I can't share all of my best photos, but I did find something online that represents the area

I had an amazing experience renting through Pegasus. They were so helpful and accomodating, and the booking rates were cheap. I'd especially like to thank Franco, he went above and beyond to make my time renting the car as smooth as possible. If I ever had any issues, he went above and beyond to help me out.I had to call him to change the end booking date for my rental car 3 times (because I was waiting for my other car to arrive, which kept getting delayed) and he always figured out a way to make it work and made the process of adjusting my booking stress-free.I'd highly recommend Pegasus for anyone looking for a rental car i Queenstown! Thanks guys

Hi,Pleased with the company's services overall. Despite being overbooked (Mistake of their Website) they organized a vehicle which was good for my use. Vehicle was unclean when received, but manageable considering the peak Easter holiday break.
