Long wait for bus shuttle
Adrian Keflavik International Airport 27 July 2017
A very pleasant car rental experience. Everything was ok. The car was exactly the one that I booked online (it rarely happens). The car was in a very good condition. The staff was nice and helpful.
Martin Keflavik International Airport 13 May 2017
Nice straff, good service. Unfortunately there was a problem with the computers when we picked up the car. That's why it took some extra time. No ones fault, of course, and the staff did their best of the situation.
Anonymous Keflavik International Airport 19 April 2017
Was worried we would be charged for some small, irrelevant thing, as I had read stories of that happening. In the end, the process was smooth and fair. The assistant at the beginning wasn't overly helpful/knowledgeable about what insurance we may need, but it wasn't a big deal.
Kenneth Keflavik International Airport 30 January 2017
Very economical. It was a little small with our family and luggage.

Sometimes navigation didn't find address which I put into.
Samantha Keflavik International Airport 14 November 2016
The staff were so friendly, particularly the guy we picked the car up from (so sorry, can't remember his name). Perfect first welcome to the country! The car was exactly as ordered and was very clean. Once we got to the place the whole process was very quick and easy both picking up and dropping off. The courtesy bus could have been better signposted both in the airport and on the instructions given. It's actually really easy to find once you know where to go!
NICHOLAS Keflavik International Airport 26 September 2016
I like the no-frills approach to getting the car, it was very easy, clear and prior conditions of the car have already been pointed out to me along with documentary proof for my keepsake. Staff was quick to attend without issue. Clear signs from airport departure to car rental area should be made more prominent. There were others who were not sure where to board the shuttle bus to the car rental desk.

All car rental groups are within walking distance of the curb (taking the rental bus is not necessary). When we had an issue of the car, we didn't have a means (nor direction from the firm) of how to get it addressed.

Registration and returning process done very quickly. No effort from the staff at the counter to explain briefly on the terms and driving ruling in Iceland.
Jim Keflavik International Airport 25 June 2016
Online booking made the process easy and quick, with access to a wide range of vehicles. Access to all of the major rental companies enabled me to choose the right vehicle at the right price.

Helpful staff Free tea/coffee and Wifi Paying extra for GPS
Sophie Keflavik International Airport 16 December 2015
Car was good, we got a Mazda Cx-3 (or 6) There was some small damage on the front bumper which was noted before we accepted the car, so no trouble on return. Staff were great, drove us to our guesthouse 5 mins down the road after returning the car. The rental office is directly across from the airport, we walked there
Paul Keflavik International Airport 17 November 2015
Staff were fantastic and friendly . Car was exactly what I asked for and was in perfect condition.
Anonymous Keflavik International Airport 10 November 2015
Excellent car, service and the ease of adding another drive, aged twenty. Nothing was too much trouble Filling the car at the end of the hire, not the rental company's fault. I should have asked for more detail when the rep said something like "the filling station is over there".
Geoffrey Keflavik International Airport 03 October 2015
The Maxda CX5 AWD was simply superb. It was comfortable and fuel efficient. The GPS was brilliant. I loved this car and driving in Iceland Nothing, everything was perfect.

Booked car with manual gear but when arrived only car with automatic gear was available.

Nice car - Ford cougar titanium windows dirty, interior dirty and floor wet at pick-up.
Anonymous Keflavik International Airport 27 June 2015
Willingness to accommodate my questions as I was not familiar with the car provided. Had to ask Avis counter how to find the Thrifty representative.
Anonymous Keflavik International Airport 15 June 2015
The car had some dents and scratches on the body, though those were all marked in the contract. At the time of pick up, the car was just from the cleaning, though still had a layer of dust on the dash board
Eamonn Keflavik International Airport 30 May 2015
Pleasant staff and very helpful Car was what we booked and brand new! Overall excellent from ease of booking to return of car.. Filling up with fuel!
Anonymous Keflavik International Airport 25 May 2015
Good, clean car. Process smooth enough. No advice given on car controls (or anything, really) - one I had not driven before. Took time to find the lights - must be on at all times in Iceland.
