Top tips for hiring a car in Iceland

  • Visitors who wish to explore the island’s famous wildlife and scenery would do well to rent a car in Iceland: public transportation is generally limited to larger towns and cities. The majority of agencies are represented in the capital city of Reykjavik and at Reykjavik International Airport, meaning it’s easy to pick up a vehicle and enjoy travel flexibility as soon as you arrive. Popular road trip routes include the Golden Circle and Snæfellsnes Peninsula (plan around 2 days for each), or a 10-day journey around the ring road.
  • Mountain roads in Iceland are known as "F roads" and are open only seasonally; the first drivable day is usually between the end of June and the middle of July. While these roads are a great way to access some of the country’s areas of natural beauty, it is important to note that it is only legal to travel them in a four-wheel drive or jeep.
  • Drivers using the main ring road in Iceland may pass through the Vadlaheidargong Tunnel, which is located in the north of the island and extends for 7.5 km (4.7 mi). The tunnel is a convenient way of shortening your journey and avoiding difficult driving conditions in the winter months. Payment is required online through the tunnel website, costing 1,500 ISK (12 USD) if paid within 3h of your trip, or 2,500 ISK (20 USD) if paid later.
  • There are several additional regulations that are important to know when renting a car in Iceland, particularly the use of headlights. Even during daylight hours (including during the summer), headlights are to be switched on at all times. Seatbelts must be worn by all passengers, and it is forbidden to use a cell phone while driving, unless it’s a hands-free kit over the front controls. Finally, please be mindful that off-road driving is illegal and is punishable with a high fine or even jail time.
