FAQ Overview
How can I pay for my rental car?
Payment for your rental car is mainly made by credit card. It is possible to pay by debit card, however at the rental counter you will need a credit card issued to the main driver in order to secure the deposit for your rental car.
Who is allowed to drive the rental car and what are the conditions?
A rental car can be driven by the main driver, that is the person registered in the booking. Additional drivers may be added to the reservation at extra fee. Please note that the main driver must present a valid credit card issued in their name. Furthermore, the main and additional drivers must be in possession of a valid driving license for at least 1 year (for further information, please refer to the rental conditions). Moreover, both, the main and additional drivers are required to present a valid identity card/passport and must be of the minimum age specified in the rental conditions.
Do I have to pick up and return the car at any time? What happens if I am late for pick-up?
We recommend that you pick up the car at the agreed time as the availability of the car cannot be guaranteed in case of delay. As a general rule, local suppliers keep vehicles available up to 30 or 60 minutes after the agreed time. If a delay is inevitable, please contact the rental agency (you will find their contact details on the voucher).
What documents are required to pick up the vehicle?
When picking up the vehicle, the main driver must present the following documents: the printed voucher, their identity card or passport; their driver's license and their valid credit card.

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.
