Why rent a car in Reykjavik with Rentalcars.com?

We negotiate with a wide range of rental companies in Reykjavik (including Budget, Europcar and Sixt) to secure cheap prices you won’t find anywhere else. We are so committed to bringing you the best prices, that if you do find the same car from the same supplier cheaper elsewhere, we will beat the quote. Our job is to take the stress out of hiring a car in Reykjavik. Just use the search form to tell us when you need a car, and let us compare prices from all the different companies.

Top Tips

  • Car headlights must always be switched on when driving in Iceland — including during the day.
  • Most people visiting tend to drive on the ring-road, which is mostly paved and well-maintained. However, there are patches of unpaved gravel surfaces in the eastern part of the country. Always reduce your speed when approaching gravel sections to reduce the risk of skidding.
  • Driving in the Icelandic countryside can be distracting due to the beautiful scenery. Always keep your eyes on the road ahead, no matter how tempted you are to admire the views.

Which companies offer best value in Reykjavik?

Here at Rentalcars.com, we are impartial — because we have no bias towards any particular companies, we show reviews and ratings from previous customers next to each listing. That way, you get honest advice that will help you decide which company to rent with. If you want to avoid hidden fuel charges, we recommend booking a car with a full-to-full fuel policy (plenty of suppliers offer cars with this policy in Reykjavik). You will just need to remember to refill the tank before you drop the car off.

Day trips from Reykjavik

Árnessýsla Heritage Museum – Eyrarbakki: Built in 1765 when Danish merchants were allowed to overwinter in Iceland for the first time, Húsið (The House), Iceland’s oldest timber house, is like taking a journey back in time. Just 40 minutes from Reykjavik by car, the rooms of this fascinating heritage museum have been restored to their former glory with period furnishings and interesting facts about some of the town’s most illustrious inhabitants from when Eyrarbakki was Iceland’s main harbour and trading point.

Laugarvatn: Approximately an hour’s drive from Reykjavik, the delightful village of Laugarvatn, rests on the banks of a shallow lake which is heated by hot springs. The Laugarvatnsfjall Mountain provides the backdrop to this idyllic location, adding to the charm and beauty of an area which is ideal for hiking and other outdoor pursuits. Laugarvatn is so magnificent that the village has become a highly popular tourist resort for Icelanders.

Skógar Museum: Founded in 1949, this fascinating museum preserves the cultural heritage of South Iceland and offers a snapshot of the past. The museum can be reached in just under two hours when driving from Reykjavik. Covering all aspects of Icelandic life, the vast collection of artefacts has been put together over more than 75 years. There are also restored, turf-roofed buildings which have been recreated to show how the people of Iceland lived, as well as a modern building which houses an interesting transport and communication museum.
