Good service but we paid to upgrade to get cruise control (which we did not know we would not have standard in Iceland). They stated it’s mot standard to have cruise control in the economy or lower standard of car. Quite unusual as I have never driven a car without cruise control. We had reserved a car with automatic transmission so did not feel that it was the lowest price to start.

Great experience. However, upon returning the car, the EuropeCar staff noticed a tiny mark on the front bumper where a previous driver must have brushed a curb or something. Fortunately, when I picked up the car, the counter staff recommended I take pictures of the car. I took this advice, and it saved me from being blamed for the damage of the tiny mark. Even though I had never noticed it, when I zoomed in on the photo of the front of the car, sure enough, you could see it was there when we had picked it up. Whew!

Wonderful experience while renting a car in Iceland via car rentals.com and Enterprise. Iceland roads have small ground lava sprinkled in the winter to add traction. Therefore, front windshields get chipped very easily. I was lucky and none pitted my window (as I would have heard it). However, when returning, the agent was getting ready to charge me. Lucky for me, the window condition wasn't included in the check out video, and wasn't charged. Bottom line: no matter how bad the weather is when you pick up the car, do a thorough check for damage, especially the windshield. For me, it was icy that day when picking it up - so I failed to perform a good inspection.

The staff seemed a little overwhelmed and had to go out to a further lot to retrieve cars multiple times when I was waiting in line due to someone not having returned a car yet. Since we picked up our car around 8 am, this seemed a little odd - I would expect some amount of preparation for expected orders at least for the morning or during quiet periods. The staff was friendly and helpful, and quite professional.

We had to draw a number and so there was no jostling when queuing up. Next door to the "competition" was a squeezing. With us, thanks to the number drawn, it was much more relaxed

Unfortunately, the car was smaller than expected. Booked a Golf, I got a Toyota Auris. There were also no alternatives in a higher vehicle class. The equipment of the vehicle was below average, as well as the engine.

After a short trip by shuttle (free) which dropped us off in front of the rental company and a good 40 minutes in line, we were able to easily take the vehicle. Check the good, I indicated on the report before rental damage which was not mentioned there. The flights from Reykjavik being very early in the morning, the return is very easy because you just have to park the vehicle in front of the agency and return the keys in a box provided for this purpose (then a short walk of 10 minutes to airport terminal). No news of the rental since (I would have appreciated a little message telling me that everything was in order). But no problem either. Note: the rented vehicles do not have the rear shelf cover for the boot. You just have to ask them before the rental that they plan it for you if you wish to have it. Also check the condition of the windshield wipers: ours should have been changed before our rental and this can be dangerous in the event of heavy rains (which often happens in Iceland ...).

Shuttle to offsite. Hard sell on upgrades and extras like insurance, 4WD, SUV, etc. Vehicle had over 100k km. on it. Not that clean and tank wasn't full, by 1/8 of a tank at pick up.

It took 45minutes to an hour to pickup my car, the information provided was confusing and I felt like I was just trying to be up-charged the whole time. Drop off was equally as frustrating.

everything went well. Only when checking the car appeared to be much more scratches than indicated. We were able to send this neatly and this was picked up immediately. Furthermore, everything went super fast and professional. So completely satisfied.

Renting a Car at Reykjavik Airport (KEF): Everything you need to know

As you begin your descent, you can feel the excitement. Once you grab your suitcase, the real fun begins in this amazing city,. While staying in Reykjavik, you'll want an automobile to check off everything on your list. There is no better way to start your vacation right away than to snag your own car. Below is nearly everything you want to ensure your car rental from Reykjavik Airport (KEF) will go off without a problem.

Where do I get the most affordable car rental provider at Reykjavik Airport?

CarRentals.com is the site to start planning your excursion to Reykjavik. If you want to snag the best possible price, you should:

  • Determine what car you'll need for your drive. Don't rent more car then you need
  • Compare all the deals available
  • Check the mileage and fuel policies. You don't want to be surprised with additional costs

Do I have to be a certain age to rent a car in Reykjavik?

You can rent an automobile in Reykjavik if you are at least 21. Please note usually you'll be charged an additional fee if you are younger than 25. Also note, for higher categories, such as premium, large capacity vehicles, or SUVs, the age restrictions can be different. Check the rental car company's policy before you book.

What rental car suppliers have counters at Reykjavik Airport?

There are 7 car rental companies at the Reykjavik Airport. Rent from companies like Dollar, Alamo, Avis, and Budget, plus many more. With so many fantastic options, you are sure to get the vehicle and the rate that you need.

Is driver's insurance necessary when you rent a car in Iceland?

In Reykjavik you do need to have insurance before you rent a car. Many major credit cards (MasterCard, Visa, American Express, and Discover) typically cover your car rental. But they normally have limitations, such as not covering large vehicles, like premium models or some SUVs. It is best to find out by calling your credit card company to find out what kind of coverage is offered before you head to Reykjavik. Additionally, as a U.S. citizen, you can add on Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.

What items will I need when picking up my car rental?

Whichever supplier you go with, you'll need to present your driver's permit and a credit card in your name.

Should I return my car rental with a full tank?

We advise a full tank policy. You receive the car with a full tank. But, if you return your rental with less fuel than you began with, the company may charge a premium to top it off. If you want to keep your expenses lower, you'll want to fill up your tank before you bring your car back.

Why should I get unlimited miles?

Reykjavik definitely has its charms, but you may want to hit the road after you've done all the activities in Reykjavik. If you have your heart set on seeing as much as you can, you'll want as many miles as possible to see all you can while on your trip.

Can I get a one-way rental for my Reykjavik trip?

Most companies usually offer one-way rentals. You may find it easier to return your vehicle at another location. Don't forget there is typically a supplementary fee when you pick one-way.

What kind of rental car should I hire at Reykjavik Airport?

That depends on your needs and what you will be doing. Economy or compact automobiles are great for short drives and are easier to park. If you are traveling with coworkers, then a SUV or mid-size vehicle is going to have enough room for all of you and be a more comfortable ride on longer trips. Those looking for a dash of extravagance on their Reykjavik vacation can choose the premium category to get a car like a Cadillac or Audi or similar.
