KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Reykjavik

  • Looking to rent a car during your time in Reykjavik? For travelers landing at Keflavik International Airport, the hire car counters can be found in the Arrival Hall of the airport’s main terminal. If you are arriving in Reykjavik Airport on a domestic flight, you will find the Europcar hire desk on the west side of the airport and the Hertz hire desk on the east side of the airport.
  • Travelers should be aware that many of the tunnels and bridges in Iceland are one way and the right of way is given to whoever arrives first. This is particularly important because these bridges and tunnels tend to be quite narrow, and nobody wants to have to back up on a tiny bridge.
  • One of the major advantages of renting a car in Reykjavik is that it truly enables you to visit any part of the country. Many wonderful sites and natural wonders are easily accessible on a day trip from Reykjavik such as the Blue Lagoon, Seljalandsfoss Waterfall, and Kirkjufjara Beach. However, make sure to keep an eye on your fuel tank, as petrol stations are sparse in Iceland.
  • Despite its relatively small size, Reykjavik still experiences the typical morning rush hour from 7:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. and evening rush hour from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. However, drivers will be happy to hear that the congestion is by no means severe, so, besides a few of the downtown streets backing up, there isn’t too much to worry about.
  • 25% of our users found a car hire in Reykjavik for €41 or less
  • Book your car hire in Reykjavik at least 5 days before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Off-airport car hire locations in Reykjavik are around 2% cheaper than airport locations on average
  • Compact hire cars in Reykjavik are around 7% cheaper than other car types, on average

PatrickOct 2023
make sure you check your credit card bill afterwards so you don’t get overcharged

Suv and if driving electric, plan around charging.
Verified travelerJun 2023
Ask counter agents to explain about tunnel tolls. Learn how to use Iceland traffic circles (different than in some other countries) in advance. Read about right of way on one way tunnels if you are driving the Ring Road.
JohnJul 2023
Very easy to drive in the city. We did not have any problems. The only tip is to take a photo of your license plate for when they ask for it to pay for parking
OrliAug 2023
Driving in Reykjavik is easy! Get familiar with road signs, warning signs … but it was easy.

Easy to drive in Iceland
Verified travelerJul 2023
Always check if you have to pay for parking! It’s easy to forget about because they simply record you with a camera as you drive in to the parking lot. Also, the way they drive in roundabouts is different! To exit, use the inner lane not the outer lane! Also, respect the speed limit. They have a lot of cameras
Verified travelerJul 2023
Unless you are unable to walk, don't drive. Most things are pretty easy walking distance and you see so much more on foot. Plenty of e-scooters to grab if you so desire. We only rented as we were going out to the countryside for a couple days.
Verified travelerJul 2023
Bring a credit card or inquire about what kind of cards they accept. Otherwise, hitchhike like we were forced to do instead of renting. It's not that bad.
Verified travelerJun 2023
Pumping gas in Iceland (or at least, figuring out how to pay for it) was a little confusing from an American perspective!
MatthewJul 2023
Only drove the golden circle, which was really easy. Don’t recommend driving the main drag (Lagavegur) heavy pedestrian traffic and one ways.
Verified travelerJul 2023
Call your credit card company to get a pin number. It's required at 80% or more of all gas stations in Iceland.
JudyJun 2023
If you are driving the ring road get a car with unlimited mileage.
Verified travelerJun 2023
This may be silly, but check beforehand what credit cards they can take!
Verified travelerJul 2023
Do due diligence about pick-up and drop off locations.
Verified travelerJul 2023
Plan on an extra expense of mandatory car insurance purchase.

Rent or bring your own portable Wi-Fi hotspot.
MyriamJun 2023
Driving was fine with Google maps.

We rented a van for our party of 6 people. It was very easy to drive around the island except in the wind.

FAQs about hiring a car in Reykjavik

  • What type of car is recommended for driving in Reykjavik?

    Weather and time of year are two of the main factors to take into consideration when choosing a car for your time in Reykjavik. In summer, for instance, small cars will be able to handle the roads with no issues. However, come winter, small cars can struggle with the weather, so it may be better to go with a midsize car instead.

Pros:

The staff member was nice and once we were able to finally see someone

Cons:

The rental system needs to be cleaner, having an individual walk out to the car is rather slow since then you loose a agent and leave people waiting way to long (we waited an hour and a half.

Pros:

Cons:

I booked a SUV (Jeep Wrangler or equivalent) and when I arrived I found out that my reservation was for an economy car (Mazda CX-3). I was mislead by Kayak /Dollar, if I had know that for the price I was getting economy instead of SUV, I would not have booked.

Once we learned the facility was about 1/3 mile from the Iceland airport and could not find a Sixt booth or their shuttle at the Iceland airport, we decided to walk to the facility in the rain & wind. Otherwise, the check in & check out process was ok and the vehicle served us well in our travels around Iceland.

2.0 Poor

Dec 2023

KAYAK
The car we were given was damaged by a previous crash including missing parts, scratches and dents. Part of the underbody started falling off while we were driving on the highway. Sixt admitted to not inspecting the underside of the car but is claiming we are at fault and we should have crawled under the car in the dark and snow at 6am with a flashlight to inspect the underbody at pickup. They then tried to force us to pay 50000 ISK for underbody damage, refusing to give us any breakdown or details. We feel that they are attempting to defraud us and will never use Sixt again.

Pros:

I liked the pick up at the hotel. The car drove fine.

Cons:

The quote that I received on Kayak was about $20 less than when I went to pick up the car. I declined any extra insurance. I spoke with Hertz rental and they said the the Iceland office was an independent office and would check with them. They basically said that that was the price and here is your invoice of what you paid. It seems that there is nothing that I can do about this. I work in the airline industry and will not recommend Kayak, unless this is rectified.

When we arrived they informed us that they didn't have the size vehicle that we booked, which was unfortunate because we had 7 people with luggage. The most that they could offer us for the inconvenience was the option to book another car at full price. The man was very short with us and repeatedly said that it wasn't his fault, rather that it was Kayak's fault and that he didn't need to accommodate us. Thankfully our friend had already booked a car with another company and allowed several of us to go with him, but our group was split up.

Pros:

Staff was friendly, good price performance ration.

Cons:

Unluckily if you book the car and you are there only one day with the cruise ship to pick up the car (no matter if with reservation or without) took more than one hour. This made our day trip very stressful, because we lost so much time. Employees should not work as tourist information if long line.

Cons:

I had booked my reservation to be picked up at 1 and dropped off at 3 and when I arrived at the return the agent charges us an extra $80 usd for the addition two hours because our reservation didn’t note the addition two hours

I didn't like de consumption. For a hybrid car i find 11,9l/100km to much. The car was delivered with the tank not full and the batery was empty to. All the rest was good, but the issue i mentioned above was bad.

The staff were very friendly and welcoming and made sure that we had an excellent rental car experience. The pick-up and drop-off went very smoothly and everything was great!

Pros:

Their staff seems to be nice while they rip you off under the table. Should have read the reviews before I booked. What people say about it being a scam is completely true.

Cons:

- They charge arms and legs for insurance deposit and damages that weren't even done by you (lots of Google reviews from multiple people about this). - Pickup in my experience took 3 hours. Multiple people had to wait with me for several hours.

They could have had our car we reserved. Instead they didn't have anything so we were forced to rent else where.

Slick car pick up / drop off Good, friendly staff

Cons:

Transport at the airport - the pickup bus was later arriving and no obvious signage on where to get picked up / meet My car had some damage on pick up - all noted fine, but the headlights were affected by the damage. Should have been fixed before re-hiring.

Pros:

Very friendly and helpful staff. I had my own insurance cover and they didn't even try to sell their own insurance. They gave me a free map, coupons for fuel discounts, and some good advice on my travel itinerary. The pick-up and drop-off was seamless with virtually no waiting time. The car was new and very well cleaned. Overall, I am very happy with the service I received and will definitely use them again on my next trip to Iceland

Cons:

none really

Pros:

They gave me a car for 6 days I suppose

Cons:

Picked up late from Keflavik in a dangerously overloaded van. Rude and unpleasant staff. Charged £650 for replacement of a damaged windscreen that was present on collection (over double the rental cost). Go somewhere else to rent a car in Iceland.

Pros:

Totally unacceptable. I rented the car (one way) well in advance and the guy at the local Avis called me that morning (Sunday) to say they had no cars, no one had returned, and there was nothing he could do about it. I spent hours calling around my area trying to find one but it was a medical emergency, and we ended up renting an Uber, hugely expensive.

Cons:

Everything. Avis in Westport is really bad.

Pros:

Great car, awesome drop-off experience. Attentive employees who knew what they were doing.

Cons:

The pickup still took more than 1.5 hours, even though I had reserved/booked in advance, which made me miss my hotel check-out time. One unfortunate employee was left to deal with a long line of customers who hadn't booked in advance, further penalizing those who had planned ahead.

Cons:

We were a party of 6 adults with 6 pieces of large luggage and 6 pieces of small luggage. We requested, had a confirmation and paid for a Toyota Sienna van with room for 7 adults and lots of luggage, but received a Citroen Picasso with room for 6 adults and no luggage. There was nothing else available at pick up and there was nothing they could do to make it better. Would not provide a roof rack unless we paid for the rental of it. We were therefore extremely crowded and uncomfortable for the entire time of the rental. The rental location was very hard to find as it was not at the airport as expected, where all the other rental companies were located. Would never rent from them again.

6.0 Okay

May 2017

KAYAK

Pros:

Staff were friendly and easy to communicate with. Insurance was offered at a reasonable rate.

Cons:

Rental was actually through Fair Car, not Economy Rent a Car. While somewhat cheaper than other large car options, we still paid a lot for a car that was a tight squeeze for five people and our luggage. We changed the pick up by only a few hours, which led to a noticeable change in price. After it was all said and done, the car was almost $200 more than expected. It looks like we were originally quoted a price in euros, not US dollars and local taxes were omitted.

May 2017

KAYAK

Pros:

Cheap and fair.

Cons:

We were not informed that the Iceland Economy Car Rental company does a "pick up service" since their building is not in the airport. This meant we were not looking for the driver when we landed and missed him. This created great confusion as we did not have cell service there to contact the company and had to find airport help.

Pick up arrived 1.5 hours late. I was charged 30% more than announced and the car was in very poor condition. Was forced to accept the deal unless I would be willing to be left in the middle of nowhere (rental office) at 10 pm with my family after a 24 hour trip. Worst experience ever.

The shuttle was supposed to pick our party of 5 up at Keflavík Airport but when we arrived they would only shuttle one of us to the rental facility so I had to go by myself then go back to the airport and pick the rest of my family up. The facility appears to be in a car junk yard. The car pick up process took a long time, the staff was rude to everyone waiting there, and they put a hold on my credit card of over $3k on top of the cost of the rental and insurance. I thought I was signing for the cost of the rental and insurance because I did not understand the conversation rate. The hold was never verbally explained to me. The car was clean but run down, dented and rusty. Luckily I took video of the exterior and interior before I got in because when I dropped it off they were going to charge me for a dent in the door until I showed them my video… even though when I picked the car up they assured me that they took enough pictures. I also heard them on the phone with another customer who’s rental died at a waterfall. They basically blamed it on the customer and told them to call roadside assistance and hung up on them. Renters beware!

The car was filthy with black/ oily grime on steering wheel and all buttons, the tires were low in air so we had to constantly find gas station to fill them, the car was dented and with broken light covers. Ended having to pay for daily insurance which doubled the rental cost.could have found a better car for the same price elsewhere. Pick up and drop off was convenient

Rented a car at a Downtown facility asked her to the airport as intended. When I attempted to change it to the airport facility, I was charged over $200 for a cancellation fee. I’ll dispute a charge and I’ll never use the service again.
