Our Wellington Car Hire Fleet
Our Pegasus Rental Cars are not brand new but they’re comfortable and very reliable. Almost all the cars are automatics and models range from sub-compact cars such as the Daihatsu Sirion, to compact 4-door hatchback Nissan Notes and Nissan Sunny sedans, to Intermediate models such as the Toyota Camry. We also have a wide range of station wagons, RVs, 7-8 seater “people movers” and 12-seater minibuses which are perfect for large groups.

Why Wellington Pegasus Rentals is a Great Choice:

  • Peace of mind motoring with a 23-point car rental safety check – your rental car is thoroughly inspected before your hire

Pick Up/Drop Off Anywhere Service
Pick up and drop offs are possible at the Interisland ferry terminals, the Central Railway Station, or perhaps at your accommodation. Almost anything is possible, for a small delivery charge of $20 during business hours 8am to 6pm, 7 days. We can help outside those hours, but an additional call-out fee will apply.

Airport Pick Up and Drop Offs
Collect your bags, call 0800 35 45 07. We’ll pick you up, take you to the depot, sign papers and away you go.Return the vehicle to the depot and we’ll zip you to the airport. Allow plenty of time when returning your rental car before your flight, at least one hour prior to check-in.

24-hour Roadside Assistance Cover
You can relax as all of our Wellington rental cars are covered by Roadside Assistance Cover. This service is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week anywhere in New Zealand.

Car Hire Insurance with Pegasus Rentals

Insurance is included in the cost of the hire. However, it does not include tyre damage or glass damage. Tyre damage cannot be insured against but it is possible to buy cover against glass damage. The excess payable on many hire cars in New Zealand is very high (some as high as $2,500 to $3,000 or more!) However, our insurance excess is just $2,000 and, for a small extra cost, that can be reduced to only $300 + GST. If you take this ‘Peace of Mind’ option, you can also take glass cover at $5 per day.

What is an insurance excess?
The amount payable by the hirer before the insurance policy takes over the costs.

Discover Wellington

If you’ve never visited Wellington before, you’re in for a treat! Wellington is one of the most picturesque capital cities with many charming neighbourhoods, eclectic restaurants, and a range of cultural activities. New Zealand’s National Museum, Te Papa is worth a visit, the Wellington Zoo is great for the family along with ZEALANDIA, the world’s first fully-fenced urban ecosanctuary, with an extraordinary 500-year vision to restore a Wellington valley’s forest and freshwater ecosystems as closely as possible to their pre-human state. If you enjoy wine, then a 65 kilometre drive to Martinborough will be on the to do list. Packed with colonial charm, Martinborough features over 20 wineries, most within cycling and walking distance of the quaint village square.

Booked a car last minute for 2 days. Very competitive rates. About half the cost per day compared to other rental companies in the area. Pick up and drop off was easy. A little surprised my ID wasn't reviewed and neither was the condition of the car before or after pick up and drop off. Either way, I got what I paid for and the car provided was sufficient and got me where I needed to go. Would consider renting from Pegasus again but maybe only for short trips. The car I drove had high miles and made a few funny noises indicitave of an older vehicle.
