Hire a car in Reykjavik and enjoy the drive!

As you prepare to take on the unknown twists and turns of Iceland, the Land of Fire & Ice, there are some basics that you’ll need to be aware of unless you don’t mind taking a wrong turn and ending up in a ring with the puffin wrestling champion!

Let’s take a look at the main things you’ll want to be aware of as you take a spin around Iceland in your Reykjavik car hire!

  • Learning the ropes. What you need to know before getting behind the wheel of your hired car in Reykjavik is: you drive on the right side of the road and overtake on the left. The speed limit around Reykjavik and most city roads is 30-50 km/h, seatbelts are compulsory and headlights must be on at all times.
  • The bigger the better (mostly!). A little economy car is all you need if you want to comfortably discover Reykjavik and other urban areas (like the Ring Road), but if you plan on going ‘off-the-beaten track’ and even attempting the F-roads, then you’ll need a larger, more robust 4x4 vehicle that can tackle everything that the island can throw at it!
  • R.E.S.P.E.C.T. One thing that sets apart the Icelandic people is their hospitality and their respect for their environment and each other. That’s why when you hire a car in Iceland you’ll want to do so respectfully at all times, i.e. not damaging the island’s natural treasures by going off road with your vehicle or stopping in the middle of the road as if you were its only inhabitant.
  • Stay protected. Iceland is called the Land of Fire and Ice for a reason! Depending on the season and the part of the island that you decide to visit, you may come face to face with extreme weather conditions and potential road hazards. That’s why we recommend that you don’t cut corners when it comes to purchasing a comprehensive insurance policy that has you covered every step of the way!
