Friendly helpful staff, great car Icelandic prices
Anonymous Keflavik International Airport 09 August 2018
Car is nice and big leg space for adults, even in the back seats. A Citroen Cactus has back seat windows whom cannot open all the way. This gives a closed feeling for passengers. Also car had tendency to go to the right. Probably a renter drove into one of the many holes in Iceland roads. And one headlight did not work, although light is obligated. And car was said to be checked two times......

Car drove well and had no issues. Car hadn’t been washed before I got it.

Car pick up and drop off times Could be cleaner on the inside. Windscreen was a bit dirty on the inside which made it a bit difficult to look out at the beautiful scenery. Otherwise everything was ok

We didn't find the ice scraper in the car, which we thought would be a must-have tool considering the weather. We had to drive around the town we were in to find a shop to buy it for the next day, which took both time and money.
Anonymous Keflavik International Airport 04 March 2018
Basically everything. Professional and super friendly staff and very nice car conditions. Nothing

The free shuttle to and from the shop made it really easy to pick up and drop off the car, even though the shop isn’t downtown.

Krushalkumar Keflavik International Airport 13 February 2018
Very nice car (Mazda CX 3). Very good staff. Quick and Easy. Don't charge you for minor chips and scratches unlike other companies I've read online. Not an airport counter. so need to wait for shuttle. can take 10-20 minutes to arrive.
Anonymous Keflavik International Airport 12 February 2018
The first two cars had dead batteries so due to the wait we were upgraded without having asked. The attendants were very professional but also friendly. Obviously it would be easier if the pick up was in the airport instead of a bus ride away, but everything else was excellent.

Fast pickup, good condition of the car. Car wasn't fully tanked at a pick up, however it says F to F policy.
Peter Keflavik International Airport 12 November 2017
All good apart from comment opposite. I only have one slight moan. Arrived just ahead of a storm and staff were keen to get us on the road ASAP. The petrol tank was not full, about 7 out of 8 bars. The girl said don’t worry just bring it back with the same. We realised we didn’t have anything to confirm this and had not taken a photo of the mileage or fuel gauge so returned full.
István Keflavik International Airport 04 November 2017
We had same size, but other type, witch was better.
Stephen Keflavik International Airport 31 October 2017
Car was clean, well-maintained and comfortable. The rental desk was easy to find and, once there, the staff were very helpful. The person dealing with me was quick and efficient. Nothing at all: the experience was excellent.

Car was nice When I picked the car up three ladies at the check in, no one offered to serve me.
Anonymous Keflavik International Airport 10 October 2017
When we picked up our car, the car key battery was low when inserted into the car. The initial response from staff was 'when it does not work, call the roadside assistance' which we did not find useful as we did not want to spend our holiday time waiting on roadside. After various attempts > 15min,finally the battery was changed and it worked fine.
Mark Keflavik International Airport 05 October 2017
The customer service was very good and clear to understand. The car had a number of dents and scratches at pick up and was probably one of the older cars in the fleet.
Mohamad Keflavik International Airport 04 October 2017
The car was good, low mileage car. Good spec overall. Did'nt expect to get such a good like new car.
Anonymous Keflavik International Airport 01 October 2017
Nice car, quick pick up time, car right at the door readily available. Although it was easy enough to get used to we wasn't shown anything inside of the car, like how to drive it and functions etc. Going from a manual left hand drive to an automatic right hand drive may not be as easy as you think if you haven't done it before.
Anonymous Keflavik International Airport 25 September 2017
We think that we had an upgraded car? Thank you for that. Plenty of room in the Ford Kuga. Car wasn't very clean as it was muddy around the boot area. Also the mats inside weren't the cleanest. It needed a valet, but didn't have one. Asked for a manual car, but had an automatic instead. No boot cover for the suitcases. Tyres needed air in them.
Anonymous Keflavik International Airport 23 September 2017
Short pick up process Nothing much really.

Helpful staff and we were served quickly. Bit of a walk to the terminal building but there was a bus if we had wanted to wait a few minutes

The guy who was responsible for our pick up (higher position in the branch) was very bored and did not have a positive aditude.
