When planning a dream vacation to the Land of Fire and Ice, it’s essential to find an Iceland rental car that is affordable, fits your needs and itinerary, and is fun to drive. Deciding to rent a car in Iceland and drive around the country’s Ring Road is an adventure you won’t soon forget. Not only is it the ultimate road trip, but you’ll experience the natural wonders of the country’s waterfalls, glaciers, volcanoes, geothermal hot springs, and other highlights of things to do in Iceland. Rental cars in Iceland encompass a wide variety of makes and models of automobiles such as sedans, SUVs, hatchbacks, and more. Cars Iceland has been doing this for a long time, and we have become industry leaders and local experts for your Iceland car rental.


The right vehicle for your journey depends on where you plan to go and what you want to do. Thinking of heading to Iceland’s Highlands for an awe-inspiring excursion to our backcountry? You’ll want to opt for a 4x4 rental like a Jeep, Land Rover or another 4WD automobile. Or simply planning on circumnavigating the Ring Road and not driving on F-roads (mountain roads)? A 2WD model like the Kia Picanto or Toyota Yaris will suit you just fine. With more information about your trip, we can give you personalized attention to help you pick the best car rental in Iceland for your needs and discover what’s most convenient for you.

If you don’t have much vacation time, you could just spend five days in Iceland traveling along the country’s incredible South Coast. If you’re lucky enough to have extended holidays, what about an Iceland Ring Road itinerary for ten days? Looking at Iceland’s attractions on a map, the most popular sights all lay along Route 1. Car rental in Iceland allows you to explore exciting destinations like Vatnajökull National Park, the volcanic black sand beaches of Vik, unforgettable glacier hikes in Skaftafell, and even the dozens of natural attractions along the Diamond Circle Route like the horseshoe-shaped Ásbyrgi canyon, Iceland’s mighty Iceland waterfalls, the gorgeous turquoise volcanic Lake Mývatn, the stunning Goðafoss waterfall, the otherworldly bubbling geothermal mud in Hverir’s lava fields, the whale watching town of Húsavík, and much more. Rental cars in Iceland give you the freedom to hit the open road and explore to your heart’s content.


Once you fly into Keflavik International Airport (KEF), the process at the rental desk for picking up your car rental at Iceland’s airport is seamless. We make things easy and convenient so you can set off cruising around the island. After you’ve collected your car rental in Reykjavik, either at Keflavik or in the city center, you’re all set. Remember to always check the weather forecast before getting behind the wheel, buckle up, and be safe while driving in Iceland.

Reykjavik Car Rental


You don’t need to drive around the whole island just to hire an Iceland rental car. When talking about Iceland’s many natural wonders, let’s not forget all the spectacular options for Reykjavik day trips. From Mt. Kirkjufell and Kirkjufellsfoss on Snaefellsnes peninsula to driving to the Blue Lagoon for a spa day, it’s possible with your Iceland car rental. And what about the most popular Reykjavik day trip: driving around Iceland’s famed Golden Circle route! The massive Silfra Fissure at Thingvellir National Park, the impressive Strokkur and Geysir geysers in Haukadalur valley’s geothermal area, and the sublime Gullfoss waterfall are just some of the highlights of this 190-mile (300 km) circuit. It’s the perfect way to spend a morning and afternoon daytrippingfrom Reykjavik. There’s also Iceland’s most beautiful waterfall, Seljalandsfoss, and nearby wonder Skógafoss and the Sólheimasandur plane wreck site.
