Rent a car in Reykjavik - What's important to know?

1. What kind of vehicle should I rent in Iceland?

The type of vehicle you’ll want depends on your itinerary. If you’re driving into Reykjavik from Keflavik Airport KEF and through the Golden Circle, a standard car is fine. However, if you’re heading deeper into the countryside on the highland, secondary or local roads, a four-wheel-drive vehicle is necessary. 

2. When can you book a cheap car rental in Reykjavik?

You should book your low-cost car hire in Reykjavik in advance. Iceland is a popular destination, particularly in the high season, so you’ll want to book early to ensure the best range of vehicles at the best possible rates.

3. What documents do I need to pick up the rental car?

Every car rental company in Reykjavik needs the following documents from you: 

  • ID/ passport
  • Driving license
  • Credit card
  • Your car rental voucher

All documents must be issued in the name of the main driver.

What to do in Reykjavik?

Reykjavik's premier museums include its National Gallery, National Museum, and two Reykjavik Art Museums (Hafnarhús and Kjarvalsstaðir). Culture House and the Settlement Museum are other standouts in the downtown area. As you begin to explore districts further away, you'll find the eccentric Icelandic Phallological Museum and the Kjarvalsstaðir gallery, both of which are easily accessed with a Reykjavik car rental.

In the harbor area, you’ll find the charming Maritime Museum, which narrates the country's fishing heritage within a former fish-freezing plant. You'll also find the historic Saga Museum, Volcano House, and the iconic Þúfa art installation. It’s quite a walk from town, so you may prefer to explore this area with a Reykjavik car hire. On the other side of the harbor, you’ll find the spectacular Harpa cultural center, a stunning concert hall designed by Ólafur Elíasson. On the other side of the city, the monumental Hallgrímskirkja is a captivating expressionist church, which towers over Reykjavik. The top-floor viewpoint and organ-pipe are must-sees.
