KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Reykjavik

  • Renting a car has never been more fun in Reykjavik because it’s a city full of life. While driving around the city, you can visit spectacular attractions such as Gullfoss Waterfall, Golden Circle, and Snaefellsnes. However, remember to book a car in advance if you need to enjoy the freedom of driving alone or with your family. Also, don't assume you can always get a rental car unless you have a reservation. Though there are many rental cars in Reykjavik, they are always in demand and may inconvenience your traveling plans. Again, don't forget the different automatic and manual rental car options when booking.
  • When looking for cheap car rentals in Reykjavik, you’ll notice that most rental offices are located near Reykjavik Airport (RKV) or Reykjavik downtown. This helps you avoid the hassle of booking bus lines that only stop in towns. Car rental companies at the terminals include Hertz, Dollar, Fair Car, Firefly, and Sixt. Most rental agencies need you to pick up and drop the car at the airport to avoid charging hefty fees. Despite booking cheap rental cars in Reykjavik, choose the comfortable and spacious ones to allow room for luggage, especially if you’re traveling with your family.
  • Always consider where you’re going when booking cheap car rentals in Reykjavik. Before driving your rental car, look at the roads to ensure you can drive it in remote areas. Renting a 2WD can limit your options for visiting the breathtaking attractions in the city. Hence, book a 4x4 rental car if you need to navigate all the beautiful places in Reykjavik. Most of these rental cars are easy to drive on all roads, including gravel, muddy, steep or even across rivers. A 4WD is the best even when you visit the city during winter. You are safe and can get to your destination smoothly despite unpredictable weather conditions.
  • Looking to rent a car during your time in Reykjavik? For travelers landing at Keflavik International Airport, the rental car counters can be found in the Arrival Hall of the airport’s main terminal. If you are arriving in Reykjavik Airport on a domestic flight, you will find the Europcar rental desk on the west side of the airport and the Hertz rental desk on the east side of the airport.
  • Travelers should be aware that many of the tunnels and bridges in Iceland are one way and the right of way is given to whoever arrives first. This is particularly important because these bridges and tunnels tend to be quite narrow, and nobody wants to have to back up on a tiny bridge.
  • One of the major advantages of renting a car in Reykjavik is that it truly enables you to visit any part of the country. Many wonderful sites and natural wonders are easily accessible on a day trip from Reykjavik such as the Blue Lagoon, Seljalandsfoss Waterfall, and Kirkjufjara Beach. However, make sure to keep an eye on your fuel tank, as gas stations are sparse in Iceland.
  • Despite its relatively small size, Reykjavik still experiences the typical morning rush hour from 7:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. and evening rush hour from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. However, drivers will be happy to hear that the congestion is by no means severe, so, besides a few of the downtown streets backing up, there isn’t too much to worry about.
  • 25% of our users found rental cars in Reykjavik for $55 or less
  • Book your rental car in Reykjavik at least 5 days before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Off-airport rental car locations in Reykjavik are around 16% more expensive than airport locations on average
  • Supplier choice rental cars in Reykjavik are around 57% cheaper than other car types, on average

Ask counter agents to explain about tunnel tolls. Learn how to use Iceland traffic circles (different than in some other countries) in advance. Read about right of way on one way tunnels if you are driving the Ring Road.

Very easy to drive in the city. We did not have any problems. The only tip is to take a photo of your license plate for when they ask for it to pay for parking

Verified travelerJul 2023
Always check if you have to pay for parking! It’s easy to forget about because they simply record you with a camera as you drive in to the parking lot. Also, the way they drive in roundabouts is different! To exit, use the inner lane not the outer lane! Also, respect the speed limit. They have a lot of cameras
Verified travelerJul 2023
Unless you are unable to walk, don't drive. Most things are pretty easy walking distance and you see so much more on foot. Plenty of e-scooters to grab if you so desire. We only rented as we were going out to the countryside for a couple days.
Verified travelerJul 2023
Bring a credit card or inquire about what kind of cards they accept. Otherwise, hitchhike like we were forced to do instead of renting. It's not that bad.
Verified travelerJun 2023
Pumping gas in Iceland (or at least, figuring out how to pay for it) was a little confusing from an American perspective!
MatthewJul 2023
Only drove the golden circle, which was really easy. Don’t recommend driving the main drag (Lagavegur) heavy pedestrian traffic and one ways.
Verified travelerJul 2023
Call your credit card company to get a pin number. It's required at 80% or more of all gas stations in Iceland.

If you are driving the ring road get a car with unlimited mileage.

This may be silly, but check beforehand what credit cards they can take!

FAQs about renting a car in Reykjavik

Once we learned the facility was about 1/3 mile from the Iceland airport and could not find a Sixt booth or their shuttle at the Iceland airport, we decided to walk to the facility in the rain & wind. Otherwise, the check in & check out process was ok and the vehicle served us well in our travels around Iceland.

The car we were given was damaged by a previous crash including missing parts, scratches and dents. Part of the underbody started falling off while we were driving on the highway. Sixt admitted to not inspecting the underside of the car but is claiming we are at fault and we should have crawled under the car in the dark and snow at 6am with a flashlight to inspect the underbody at pickup. They then tried to force us to pay 50000 ISK for underbody damage, refusing to give us any breakdown or details. We feel that they are attempting to defraud us and will never use Sixt again.

I had rented a car for the incorrect dates, but immediately attempted to change the dates and the website would not allow me to do so. I attempted to call, but there was no answer. I emailed, but got no response. As a last resort, canceled the reservation on the website, but it did not list as canceled, until, eventually, it did say it was cancelled, but charged me the entire cost of the rental as a ‘cancellation fee.’ I would like my money back.

Pick up was a bit confusing, mostly because I misread the email. Would be awesome if there were signs for dollar somewhere in the airport, even if that sign just said to press the pickup button.

Thrifty and Dollar are not in the terminal. You catch the shuttle at the departure side of the airport under the "Meeting Point" sign. Only a 3-4 minute shuttle ride. I think this is the better option than renting in the airport because there is no wait once you get to site and they shuttle you right back to the departure entrance when you're finished. If you rent at airport it is quite a long walk back to terminal from the rental car drop-off, with luggage, and they do get a bit of rain in Iceland ' ). Keep their phone number handy so you can call if they're not yet at the Meeting Point when you're ready.

Pros:

Their staff seems to be nice while they rip you off under the table. Should have read the reviews before I booked. What people say about it being a scam is completely true.

Cons:

- They charge arms and legs for insurance deposit and damages that weren't even done by you (lots of Google reviews from multiple people about this). - Pickup in my experience took 3 hours. Multiple people had to wait with me for several hours.

The rental office is very close to the airport, but the directions that were emailed to me were not good. No one inside the airport could tell me where you were at. We ended up having a cab drive us to the location we were we mailed only to find out that you were back behind the airport in an office connected to a hotel. That little ride cost me $30.00. But the car was great, the staff were efficient, and the car was big enough to carry 3 people and two weeks worth of luggage. The price was the lowest we found. We will rent from you folks again.

The car was older, beat up, and dirty. But on the flip-side, you didn’t have to worry about where you took it.

Slick car pick up / drop off Good, friendly staff

Cons:

Transport at the airport - the pickup bus was later arriving and no obvious signage on where to get picked up / meet My car had some damage on pick up - all noted fine, but the headlights were affected by the damage. Should have been fixed before re-hiring.

Pros:

Totally unacceptable. I rented the car (one way) well in advance and the guy at the local Avis called me that morning (Sunday) to say they had no cars, no one had returned, and there was nothing he could do about it. I spent hours calling around my area trying to find one but it was a medical emergency, and we ended up renting an Uber, hugely expensive.

Cons:

Everything. Avis in Westport is really bad.

Pros:

Great car, awesome drop-off experience. Attentive employees who knew what they were doing.

Cons:

The pickup still took more than 1.5 hours, even though I had reserved/booked in advance, which made me miss my hotel check-out time. One unfortunate employee was left to deal with a long line of customers who hadn't booked in advance, further penalizing those who had planned ahead.

Pick up arrived 1.5 hours late. I was charged 30% more than announced and the car was in very poor condition. Was forced to accept the deal unless I would be willing to be left in the middle of nowhere (rental office) at 10 pm with my family after a 24 hour trip. Worst experience ever.

The shuttle was supposed to pick our party of 5 up at Keflavík Airport but when we arrived they would only shuttle one of us to the rental facility so I had to go by myself then go back to the airport and pick the rest of my family up. The facility appears to be in a car junk yard. The car pick up process took a long time, the staff was rude to everyone waiting there, and they put a hold on my credit card of over $3k on top of the cost of the rental and insurance. I thought I was signing for the cost of the rental and insurance because I did not understand the conversation rate. The hold was never verbally explained to me. The car was clean but run down, dented and rusty. Luckily I took video of the exterior and interior before I got in because when I dropped it off they were going to charge me for a dent in the door until I showed them my video… even though when I picked the car up they assured me that they took enough pictures. I also heard them on the phone with another customer who’s rental died at a waterfall. They basically blamed it on the customer and told them to call roadside assistance and hung up on them. Renters beware!

The car was filthy with black/ oily grime on steering wheel and all buttons, the tires were low in air so we had to constantly find gas station to fill them, the car was dented and with broken light covers. Ended having to pay for daily insurance which doubled the rental cost.could have found a better car for the same price elsewhere. Pick up and drop off was convenient

The drop off was quick. Only because we were the only people there. The pick up was a complete mess and took forever. Took a long time for the shuttle to arrive from the airport. The rental car was very old. It had 110,000 miles on it was was very. I wish I had rented from hertz. avis, or enterprise and not a discount car rental.

Rented a car at a Downtown facility asked her to the airport as intended. When I attempted to change it to the airport facility, I was charged over $200 for a cancellation fee. I’ll dispute a charge and I’ll never use the service again.
