Frequently asked questions
How do I get an Akureyri Sixt rental car at a great rate?
We try to get you the best rates, whether you book. However, getting your car ahead of your visit can help you save even more. Make sure to read the mileage policy and keeping it to one driver will reduce your expense.
What should I have with me when I pick up my car rental in Akureyri?
Make sure to carry with you your driver's license and a credit card in your name.
What's Akureyri's minimum age to rent a car?
Sixt's minimum age to rent a car in Akureyri is 18. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), may have an additional fee if you are under 25. Take time to review Sixt's policies to determine if there is an additional cost before you book.
Is there a particular car I should get for my trip to Akureyri?
That depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Akureyri. Economy or compact automobiles are ideal for short commutes and are easier to park. If you are traveling with a bigger group, then a SUV or mid-size vehicle will have more room for everyone's luggage and offer a more comfortable ride on longer commutes. Those looking for a bit of luxury on their Akureyri getaway can choose the premium category to get a car like a Cadillac or Audi or similar.
Does Iceland require car insurance?
You are required to have insurance before you rent a car in Iceland. Many major credit card issuers (Discover, American Express, Visa and MasterCard) typically cover your car rental. However, many of them have prohibitions, such as not covering bigger vehicles, like trucks or SUVs. Make sure to find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you head to Akureyri. Additionally, as a United States citizen, you can also add on Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.
Does Sixt require a deposit at the time of booking my rental car?
Sixt does require a deposit when you reserve your rental car. Sixt will block the deposit on your credit once you book your car for your trip. Please be aware that the deposit will vary greatly based on the make and model of the rental.
Do I have to full up the tank before I take my car back to Sixt?
We encourage a full tank policy. You pick up your Sixt rental with the needle at "F". But, if you return your rental with less than the amount it was given to you, most companies will charge a premium to top it back off. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to find a filling station before you bring it back to Sixt.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Akureyri certainly has its charms, but you may want to take to the road again after you've checked off all the activities in Akureyri.
Does Akureyri Sixt offer one-way car rentals?
Sixt typically offers one-way rentals. You may find it more convenient to return your rental car at a different location. However, there is typically an additional charge when you opt for one-way.
