Smooth process - some things to consider
Pros: Quick and easy process to pick up and drop off the car. Very nice and friendly budget representatives.
Cons: They should have the sand protection policy online so people can read it ahead of time. We went to check out the car and found 6 other scratched that weren't mentioned on the page.

$600 charge for paint chip
Pros: Decent car.
Cons: Returned the car with a paint chip on the passenger side door, size of a grain of rice. Got charged $600 for it; they know you won't argue because you have a flight to catch. BE WARNED: They will either get you for buying their 'insurance' or get you for 'damages'. Roads in Iceland have a lot of small pebbles, so you WILL get paint damage.

Couldn't have been happier
Pros: Had an excellent experience using Budget to rent a car to drive around Iceland. We arrived at 4am at the airport and had our keys and documents signed within 30 minutes. The car came with a full tank of petrol and was spotless inside and out. We rented a Hyundai i10 which I'd highly recommend. The car came with studded snow tires which I didn't expect. They came in handy when driving the icy roads in Northern Iceland.
Cons: The gentleman asked if we'd like to return the car with a full tank or empty tank of fuel. I obviously said empty because it seemed like a better deal. I believe I was charged an extra $80 USD for the full tank which would have cost me around $50 USD if I was to fill it myself. It was my fault for falling for the convenience of it.

Car was right out front!
Pros: Car could not have been located better - it was parked right out front of the terminal, which was crucial because it was so cold and we were in a hurry. Drop off was just as easy.
Cons: The car sounded like it had some mechanical issues, and was missing a hub cap, but didn't have any major issues.

Oscar
Pros: Car was pretty new and did its purpose fine!
Cons: HIDDEN. FEES. My total renting from budget was $167, when i left the front desk the final price was $591! It is unacceptable! We added a GPS, whiche they charged over $60 a day for, this is one ove these crappy 2003 GPS, impossible to work with. And on top of that hidden fees, I had the feeling of being of dishonesty. When i got the car keys i had to walk 5 min to pick up the car and was told to make a full on inspection of the car that they estimated would take 15-20 min, the last thing you wanna do after you've been standing in line for 85 minutes, and had your price more than tripple. Returning the car, Budgets representative took 25 minutes going throught the car (while im standing next to him) and finds things on it that is just inpossible would have been our fault but just general wear and tear, their insurance claime came down to $1756, so DON'T FORGET INSURANCE, they will do anything to milk out an extra dollar. All in all, BEWARE!

Do not rent with Budget- will not honor kayak res specifications
Cons: When we went to check the car we were given, the dashboard said that one of the tires had low air pressure. The associate who handled our reservation told us to come back inside and tell them if anything was wrong with the car. She sent out a different associate to check for us, and because he clearly wanted to be done for the night he told us to ignore the warning about low air pressure because the problem was with the dashboard display, not the tire. He was incredibly rude to use when we told him we could tell that the tire pressure was low just by looking at it. He told us should just take the car and take it to a garage to get it fixed if it was bothering us and it was not his problem. As you know, the roads in Iceland can be quite dangerous and your associate told us to drive them with a deflated tire. Aside from the poor customer service, your associate put our lives in danger by telling us to ignore the car's warning signal and drive dangerous roads with a deflated tire. He left and went home for the night, and we were forced to spend another 1.5 hours at your return center until they gave us a new car. In addition, the initial associate we dealt with said they would not honor the reservation conditions from our kayak reservation which promised a car that fit 4 suitcases. From start to finish, this was an unpleasant and dangerous experience.

Drop off unclear
Pros: Pickup not bad. A bit of a walk to Cars would be ugly in winter. Friendly desk staff.
Cons: Drop off inefficient and not well marked. Shuttle is a van that take 6 people at a time, so expect to wait. Walk to airport would be terrible in winter.

Hassle free rental
Pros: The interaction I had with Europacar staff both at pick-up and return was first rate. Both were pleasant, professional without any intent to hassle or nitpick. Or that I felt pressured to add something I did not want to add. The car was new, clean, comfortable in excellent working order. I highly commend Europacar for their excellent, professional and I might add nice staff with excellent English speaking skills.
Cons: The cost which was not excessive by Icelandic standards but far more expensive than my home country. This of course is not a criticism of Europacar but a function of the reality of car rental/hire in Iceland. The cost to return the car at the Eastern end of Iceland doubled the cost.

Pros: The staff were very friendly and professional.
Cons: I had expected a slightly higher quality car. The various categories/tiers made it difficult to honestly assess value. For example, we selected a "VW Golf or similar" and ended up with a Kia. I do not consider the Kia similar given we did not select the economy category.

Pros: First vehicle I was given had a flat tire light on - but it was immediately replaced with a nicer vehicle when I pointed it out. Vehicle rental overall was great. On returning, there had been some minor issues (chips due to gravel roads) that I reported and this was handled very smoothly and professionally by the team.
Cons: Since this rental was in Iceland I would have loved the option to get a larger 4x4 vehicle. However, this was not available for 7 passengers! Overall, very good though.

Perfect car, perfect service.
Pros: Far better service than the Budget office next door (at Reykjavik/KEF), which is what we used last time. Fast, friendly, helpful, and no-nonsense. The car was in great condition, and met our needs perfectly.

Iceland camper van (a thing of the past?)
Pros: Relatively new van, ran great, and the custom shelving was quite handy, especially the pull out cutting board table. Plenty of room for 2. Friendly crew.
Cons: It was a panel van so with the custom shelving there is zero visibility of whats behind you or in your side blind spots. Outside of the city you can get by but be prepared to have your passenger on the lookout for you. With the new law / rule you need to park at camping sites and pay the fee, so seems to defeat the point of the camper van.

Exorbitant gas cost substantially increased cost
Pros: Pickup was fine and the vehicle was fine.
Cons: We were told to fill up the gas tank at the airport upon return. I asked if the price at the airport gas stations was higher than we'd pay at stations in Reykjavik. The Hertz rep said that the price would be identical. When we got to the airport to return the car, the gas stations wouldn't accept cash or our US credit cards. We tried both stations at the airport. No luck. So we handed in the car with half a tank, having wasted 20 minutes trying to fill up. We explained the issue to the trainee attendant at Hertz's returns desk and he told us there was nothing that can be done. They simply charged us the penalty rate for a non-full tank. This was highway robbery in my view. I won't be using Hertz again.

Beware when renting in Iceland
Pros: The rental companies are very picky when it comes to damage. They charge for the smallest marks. I would buy full coverage insurance (which I never buy). The roads are full of rocks, construction, and sand storms. Also beware of all the speed cameras. There is zero tolerance for speeding and their tickets are expensive!
Cons: Worrying about any little rock ding

Sep 4 2017
Cons: Drop off was closed because we had an early morning flight and there were no clear instructions on where to park or leave the keys. We drove around and couldn't figure it out so we just went to the airport to drop off our luggage first. Luckily the Hertz booth inside the airport for picking up your rental had a sign with a number so we could call and get instructions. However, if you didn't have a cell phone that worked in Iceland would have been difficult as well. Also the rental location was only a 5-10 min walk from the airport so it wasn't too bad once we got instructions. We did not plan for this because the website said that the Keflavik Hertz was open 24/7. In the end it worked out and it was pretty easy, but communication was difficult.

New good cars and SUVs
Pros: The cars were new and clean. The RAV4 we got had only 4,000 KMs. Well optioned with a free GPS that really didn't find any locations. For $15 per day you can rent a wifi adapter we didn't get it as my cell had internationals calling and data. Check in was pretty quick.
Cons: The check in to get your car was painfully long. After waiting a long time for the rental car shuttle to load up with folks ~ 20 minutes we were off to the rental car drop offs. Once we arrived there we waited around another 40 minutes to get our RAV4. The car GPS couldn't find sites to see by name. I plugged them into my Google Maps and it had no issue finished where we needed to go.

Nov 26 2019
Pros: Very easy process, staff was attentive and welcoming. Car was nice, no issues.
Cons: My only complaint was that I feel I was upsold how 'Iceland is different from other countries so the insurance is more worthwhile here.' I came in November and other then some rain and higher winds, I really didn't think the weather was all that special. I didn't encounter any gravel roads going to the main sites along the southern coast and their certainly wasn't need for the wind and ash insurance. Now certainly these things happen, of course, and it's good to be aware, but I felt like the way everyone was talking about the weather I would be stupid not to take it, yet the changes were really not that different from my home country. So maybe I would amend the shtick on insurance to 'useful if you only drive in sunny weather' or something similar.

RIDICULOUS INSURANCE COST
Cons: Upon picking up the car in Reykjavik, Iceland, the Avis employee informed us that the insurance would cost twice the cost of the rental, and did not know if we could cancel it if I found out that my credit card was already providing coverage. He then said it would not be possible to refund my money.

Dec 25 2016
Pros: The representative upon my arrival was very courteous and helpful. The car was relatively easy to find in the parking lot and when we arrived it was very clean and ready for us to go. I also liked that it had a full tank of gas.
Cons: I thought the car was a bit pricey for what it was. But maybe that's just because it was in Iceland and everything is expensive in Iceland. Also, I found the car to be a bit small. We had four adults and an infant in a car seat. The description of the vehicle said that it holds 5 and luggage for 5. However it barely held luggage for 3. One of the passengers had to have their luggage on their lap the entire way back to and from the airport. Finally, the drop-off procedure can stand some improving. When I dropped off the vehicle fortunately I had already dropped off the other four individuals at the terminal and I drove the car back by myself. But when I got to the drop-off location it was windy and snowing and raining and very cold and there's no shuttle back to the terminal so I had to walk back in that nasty weather. It wouldn't have been a problem in the summer time but that particular day was nasty.

Wish I had seen some reviews beforehand
Pros: Managed to get the 4x4 I hoped for. That's pretty much it.
Cons: Bought travel insurance to cover the vehicle only to find out that if you decline their insurance they hold several THOUSAND dollars as a deposit. Don't remember seeing that written anywhere when I did this deal. So I had to get their coverage or be stuck with whatever. Wound up paying as much as other companies so no real discount after it was all said and done! Won't be using them or maybe even Kayak again for rentals!!

Decent vehicle but pricing is false.
Pros: The Dacia Duster was a good little SUV for Iceland's gravel roads. I definitely recommend getting something with AWD or 4WD for Iceland if you're planning to leave Reykjavik.
Cons: Ace subcontracts with a company called Go-Iceland. If you do not want their insurance, even if you already have your own, they will charge you a $3500 deposit. Yes, that's right, $3500. Their proprietary insurance is quite expensive and dies not cover chipped windshields or tires. You will still be responsible for these damages. Luckily we incurred no damage and despite paying considerably more for the vehicle than we expected, we got good use out of our car and had an amazing time in Iceland. We will be going back but we will not be using Ace.

Brand New Rental, Terrible Service
Pros: Started out great that we had a brand new rental only 45km before us but turned out to be awful. The fact that we had a brand new rental was the only good thing, the price started out good too.
Cons: From the start it was difficult to find the shuttle at 5:00 in morning. The service agent at the ACE rental location was not super helpful, explained very little to us only the necessities. Suggested I upgrade coverage to not pay a deposit but turns out that didn't cover everything. On the first day the battery in the brand new car failed and they wouldn't give us a replacement, we had to wait until the next day for them to replace the battery and drive with a ECO feature off. When we returned at 3:00 like requested to return our car the agent was not there we has to wait it 0* weather outside. When he did show he explained nothing and charged us an additional fee as never explained why, and now we have dispute with their service and out credit card company. My suggestion is look elsewhere and get all the insurance you can. The insurance Kayak offers from Alliance covers nothing.

Horrible Customer Service
Pros: Nothing about this company was good.
Cons: I usually don't write negative reviews but read this for your own sake...DO NOT book with this company! They claimed that there was a tiny dent on one of the doors which was most likely there beforehand but that tiny dent they said they usually charge $1200 for that small dent (which is insane) but they are going to be nice about it and charge $600. At that point I realized that they are trying to just rip off money from me and after going back and forth and they said they will charge me $400. So clearly it's based of random numbers and I was extremely disappointment because clearly they are stealing money. So, do yourself a favor and book with a different company that have better and more honest customer service and don't so obviously steal your money.

When they showed us the car it was night and they had washed it down IMMEDIATELY before showing us. The car looked new, and they said it was relatively new but it was difficult to see any marks. We were in a hurry so I took one photo of a small dent and we signed off on the car. We drove it on roads only for less than TWO days before bringing it back. The guy (from Greece, I didn't get his name) "found" a scratch on the side that looked like from a key or knife, and small dents on the hood (easily masked by water droplets at night). We bought their 2nd level of insurance and still had to pay $500 to them. After I disputed it he went on to tell me how ACE has a partnership with a garage where they take their cars. The "garage" is also owned by ACE. They set arbitrarily high repair prices and scam tourists. This was the cheapest rental place we could find and a huge mistake. Furthermore, I accidentally left my passport and cash in the center console with 100% certainty. The same guy from Greece claims he was the only one in the car since I dropped it off and denies having seen anything. I searched my photos for evidence of when I had it on my person and called the few places we had been that day to check. We can say with 100% certainty that he stole it from the car. We missed our flights and had to spend more money we couldn't afford to get a new passport, flights, hotel, and expensive Icelandic food. I'm so inspired by this series of events that I will post this everywhere I can leave a review. Good luck out there people!

Cons: I asked for Jeep and I got a Duster. It meand I looked for more reliable car. No spare wheel was in car. For winter and snow/frost - wind screen is not heated enough.
2.0 Mediocre

Ripped me off
Cons: Cracked oil pan from gravel or previous accident. Took on no-off roads, main highway only and then they charged me almost $2,000 to fix the oil pan.

Top tips for renting a car in Keflavik

  • When coming to the remote town of Keflavik, renting a car is definitely a must; Iceland is a popular destination for road trips and public transport is not well-established in this secluded corner of the world. Get the most out of your island experience and hire your own four wheels upon arrival at Keflavik to explore the stunningly untouched landscape of Iceland. You can also visit Reykjavik, which is about 50 minutes away, and probably even catch a glimpse of the Northern Lights.
  • When landing at Keflavik International Airport, head to the car rental service desks in the arrivals hall and choose from companies like Avis or Hertz, among some others. With a car, the ride to central Reykjanesbaer (which is the municipality made up of Keflavik, Njarovik, and Hafnir) will only take 5 minutes, whereas public transport or walking will take half an hour.
  • Traffic jams are unlikely to be encountered during a trip to Iceland, even though most Icelandic people own a car, as there is little to no public transport available. One of the worst mistakes to commit in Iceland when driving a car is leaving the road and driving into a field or any strip of nature. Fines can be exorbitantly high, as the Icelandic people are very fierce when it comes to protecting the nature of their island, so always stick to the roads that stretch across the entire island and make exploring it an easy and enjoyable undertaking.
  • Iceland is particularly famous for the Northern Lights, but, when driving through the countryside or Keflavik, don’t get distracted by this extraordinary nature spectacle. Many accidents in Iceland happen because tourists stop their car in the middle of the road to take pictures of the scenic pastures or Northern Lights. Especially as long strips of roads are not well-lit, this is a dangerous undertaking that should be avoided. Find a proper parking spot, park the car, and enjoy the phenomenon safely.
