Pegasus Dunedin – A Family Affair

Lyndon grew up on a dairy farm located on the Taieri Plains just outside of Dunedin. Lyndon has continued the family farming tradition managing his own Dairy farm, as well as owning three Pegasus Rental Car branches in Dunedin – at the airport, city and Port Chalmers.

Originally Lyndon was looking for a business that would be run from their old cheese factory when the chance to purchase the Pegasus franchise came up in 2011. As a heavy diesel mechanic by trade and one who loves tinkering on cars and machinery, Lyndon knew it was an opportunity not to be missed.

A business leap of faith for him but with his wife Tina and daughter Hannah on board, he knew the business would be in safe hands. Between them they understood about excellent customer service and the necessity of providing quality, reliable vehicles.

To gain the car rental expertise they employed Lee, who has over 18 years experience in the industry. Warren too, with 5 years experience, joined the team later. Tina and Hannah both manage the airport branch, while Lee and Warren take care of the city and Port Chalmers branches.

The Port Chalmers branch caters specifically to the cruise ship visitors – over 130 ships from October to April, bringing in excess of 150,000 tourists to city. Those visitors that wish to explore the greater Dunedin area independently can begin their adventure with Pegasus Rental Cars immediately upon disembarking the ship.

Lyndon is one of the founding members of the Pegasus Management Team, which meets regularly to review key business functions from the owner/operator perspectives and ensure the business as a whole is performing as well as it could be. Lyndon’s success with the Dunedin branches has meant he can use this knowledge and experience to help guide other Pegasus branches if they require it.

Over the years Lyndon has been in the car rental business he has seen significant growth and competition in this industry. That’s why his ethos has never changed – to give customers a great car at a fair price along with exceptional customer service.

Pegasus Rental Cars Dunedin hires to visitors from all over the world for various lengths of time and one hire even lasted for a whole year!
