It’s Easy to Explore Taupo via a Rental Car

Taupo has become a popular venue for many sporting events such as the International Ironman, New Zealand’s biggest one day annual event, the Lake Taupo Cycle Challenge with 11,000+ riders completing the 160kms around Lake Taupo and motor racing events on the national sporting calendar. Other yearly events highlight arts, culture and food & wine festivals. Concerts, theatre, performing arts and great nightly entertainment are just a few things you can expect.

A couple of must do things while you are visiting the Great Lake Taupo region of New Zealand: Huka Falls, five minutes drive north of Taupo, a thundering 11-metre high waterfall and the most photographed natural attraction in New Zealand. The adventure seekers will have a fantastic time in Taupo with skydiving, bungy jumping, white water rafting, jet boating and parasailing all available. During the winter months, a short drive from Taupo is the Whakapapa Ski Area, New Zealand’s largest ski area with over 65 trails to discover. There’s elevator access to the beginner slopes and exciting volcanic terrain for the advanced skier. There is always something different to see and do when you visit the region. All of this is an easy drive in your Pegasus Taupo rental car.

Very helpful staff. Clean, tidy affordable vehicles

We rented a car at Pegasus car rental for a roadtrip to Grisborne and it was perfect, not only did we have no problem with the car, but also the process of renting a car was really easy because the staff is really competent and friendly.

Such wonderfully accommodating people! Always helpful, and bright with the supportive can-do attitude you'd expect of a kiwi business. The cars are the best price in town and well taken care of. Glad we found them!

After our car broke down we could pick a rental thrue the AA. It was allmost closing time but within about ten minutes they managed all. Day before Christmass we could return after hours and they kept open for it. When we left the car in a hurry glasses were left behind and they shipped it for free. That's what I call five star service!
