Rent a Car in Iceland

In addition to being able to discover hidden waterfalls, black sand beaches and hot springs that you wouldn’t be able to reach otherwise, driving around in your own vehicle gives you a sense of freedom that you just can’t get from taking the bus or train. It’s also a great way to save money, as you can rent a smaller car that’ll still give you the freedom to explore without being limited by capacity.

Most rental cars in Iceland include basic CDW insurance, which limits how much you’d have to pay out of pocket for damage caused to the vehicle during your trip. However, there are a few other things you should take into consideration before renting your car in Iceland.

Before you sign your rental contract, it’s worth double checking the details of your agreement with the agent. It might be easy for a small mistake to slip through the cracks, and it’s always better to be safe than sorry.

Be sure to check whether your rental car includes a spare tire and jumper cables. If not, be sure to request them as an additional service and remember to bring your own in case something happens during your journey.

Also be sure to read through the terms and conditions of your rental carefully, as they can vary from company to company. Some may have age or residency requirements, so be sure you’re eligible before booking a vehicle.
