Why Renting a Car in Iceland is the Way to Go

It’s all very well for us to tell you that driving around Iceland is so special that you’ll be thinking about getting back on the road even when you are face to face with the almighty Godafoss Waterfall or that there isn’t a better destination in the world to discover by car… But then you’d only have our word to go on. So let’s take a closer look at WHY hiring a car in Iceland is (nearly) as essential as the oxygen we breathe!

  • Go where you want, when you want. Follow your heart’s desires and take your Reykjavik rental car wherever you please! Iceland is a country so packed with hidden treasures and natural wonders that you just can’t go wrong. Get behind the wheel, set your course and discover somewhere new every single day with the cheapest rental cars in Iceland.

  • Save your cash for the good stuff. Why spend your money on expensive day tours and overpriced public transport when you can put it towards making your Iceland road trip so much more special?! Treat your pallet to a unique Icelandic dining experience or your feet to the healing waters of the Blue Lagoon after a full day of hiking. The choice is yours!

  • Don’t wait around for anybody! Life these days is a waiting game. You’ve been waiting for this vacation to arrive, you waited for a cab, for the plane to take off… Enough is enough! You’re in Iceland, the Land of Fire and Ice! Hire a car at Keflavik Airport as soon as you land and take the reins of what is surely going to be the adventure of a lifetime!

Tips for Driving Around Iceland

Icelandic traffic rules are very strict and may differ greatly from what you are used to. Read on and make sure you don't get caught off-guard!

Driving in a car that is not your own, on roads that you’ve never driven down before, in some cases under harsh weather conditions, can be as painful as a new pair of shoes after a full-day hike! That’s why preparation is key if you want your Iceland road trip to play out as smoothly as Michael Jackson’s ‘Smooth Criminal’.

Now let’s take a look at the main things you’ll want to be aware of as you zoom out of the garage in your Iceland car rental!

  • Back to basics. Let’s kick things off with an overview of Iceland’s essential traffic laws: you drive on the right side of the road and overtake on the left. The speed limit around the city is 30-50 km/h, seatbelts are compulsory and headlights must be on at all times.

  • Size really does matter. Make sure you choose the right rental car based on the type of road trip you have in mind. Thinking about sticking to Reykjavik and other urban areas (or even the Ring Road)? Then rent a car in Reykjavik! However, if you plan on journeying further out into the mountains, you’ll want a big, bad and brute 4x4 rental that can overcome any challenge that the island can throw at it!

  • Go where you please (kind of). Iceland is yours to explore but you’ll need to do so respectfully. What does that mean? Basically, you can’t just stop your car in the middle of the road if you fall in love with the view, and you can’t go off road with your vehicle on a whim. Doing so can lead to big fines.

  • Better safe than sorry. Iceland is full of potential road hazards, even more so if you plan on exploring the F-roads and venturing into the Highlands. From harsh weather conditions to animals in the middle of the road… Make sure you purchase an insurance policy that covers you against any damage that you are likely to incur!
