Airport Pick up/Drop Off

“I have recently rented vehicles from Pegasus in both Wanganui and New Plymouth. At both the service was excellent and I would definitely rent from you again. I have already recommended your brand to others. Very professional while being friendly. I was especially impressed with, and appreciated, the free airport pickup in Wanganui.”

Sally Sheridan, Auckland

“It was a very good experience. There were options of cars and Paul listened to what I wanted and came up with a suitable one, size and price. He was on time picking me up from the airport, I gave him my flight details weeks before and we didn’t speak until he turned up at the airport. He explained things simply and was chatty and easy to talk to. It all went like clockwork.”

Victor Boyd, Auckland
