Tony took over Peninsula Rent A Car in Whitianga on the 1st May 2018, retiring after 38 years of commercial flying. Having travelled the world as a 737 and 747 Captain he enjoyed taking every opportunity to explore the surroundings on his stopovers. Hiring cars was the most convenient and also the most economical way to see the villages, towns and cities on either limited time or leisurely travelling with his family. Having lived and stayed in so many different places, he has settled down in Whitianga and loves the Coromandel and surrounding 


areas. It has the best of everything, people are friendly, there's a lot of good accommodation, restaurants, heaps of concerts and events to keep you entertained and of course the breathtaking surrounding beaches and landscapes. Tony knows what is required to turn a road trip into a good experience and he wants you to enjoy yours so will do the extra to make sure you have a safe, happy and enjoyable trip
