WELCOME TO ICELAND

Dear traveler
 
Iceland is a unique and adventurous playground of boiling mud pools and stunning waterfalls, spitting geysers and vast glaciers, of Erik the Red and Leif the Lucky, of Björk and Bobby Fisher.
 
We invite you to explore our raw, dramatic landscapes born from volcanic eruptions and carved out by the never-ending battle between fire and ice. We invite you to relax in one of our 170 geothermal pools while feeling firsthand the awe-aspiring power of the planet. Take in the incredible contrasts of nature’s colors and breathtaking scenarios from Mývatn to Vík and come to visit us in our traditional stone and turf houses. Taste a spoonful of 'skyr' or a piece of dried haddock and feel like a real Icelander.
 
All this with the utmost respect for the fine balance and purity of unspoiled nature that nests within every creature of this wonderful wilderness and wildlife, man and beast alike: Take only pictures, leave only footsteps.
 
The mightiest forces that nature can muster will forever challenge your perception of beauty. They will transform our magical country before you visit us again. You will come again because once you have set foot on our constantly changing soil, you will realize that Iceland is not only closer than you think, but far different than you ever imagined.

We could go on, but nothing will compare to your own experiences on a vacation to a land of contrasts: To our unique island in the north near the Arctic Circle.
 
We look forward to seeing You!

Cozy apartments in Iceland

Choose a house with garden and outdoor porch or a close-to-everything apartment. Many home rentals are a convenient walk to shops, cafes and coffee houses, but located on quiet residential streets.

Iceland can tend to be expensive, so holiday rentals deliver some genuine savings and real comfort.

You can prepare several home-cooked meals, while enjoying some of the diverse dining spots.

With your home retreat, complete kitchen, Wi-Fi access and family-friendly spaciousness, you’ll know in advance the fixed expense of accommodations and the budget available for dining and excursions - a real advantage for your vacation planning.

What do I need to hire a car in Iceland?

To book your car, all you need is a credit or debit card. When you pick the car up, you’ll need:

  • Your voucher / eVoucher, to show that you’ve paid for the car.
  • The main driver’s credit / debit card, with enough available funds for the car’s deposit.
  • Each driver’s full, valid driving licence, which they’ve held for at least 12 months (often 24).
  • Your passport and any other ID the car hire company needs to see.

 
Different car hire companies have different requirements, so please make sure you check the car’s terms and conditions as well.
 

How old do I have to be to rent a car?

For most car hire companies in Iceland, the age requirement is between 21 and 70 years old. If you’re under 25 or over 70, you might have to pay an additional fee.
 

What should I look for when I’m choosing a car?

  • Space: You’ll enjoy your rental far more if you choose a car with plenty of room for your passengers and luggage.
  • Fuel policy: Not planning on driving much? A Full to Full fuel policy can save you a lot of money.
  • Location: You can’t beat an ‘on-airport’ pick-up for convenience, but an ‘off-airport’ pick-up with a shuttle bus can be much cheaper.

 

Are all fees included in the rental price?

The vast majority of Rentalcars.com rentals include Theft Protection, Collision Damage Waiver (CDW), local taxes, airport surcharges and any road fees.

You’ll pay for any ‘extras’ when you pick your car up, along with any young driver, additional driver or one-way fees – but we’ll explain any additional costs before you book your car (and taking your own child seats or GPS can be an easy way to reduce your costs).

For more details on what’s included, just check the Ts&Cs of any car you’re looking at.
