Best Iceland Car Rental Tips

Driving in Iceland is a unique experience that requires some extra consideration.

In my experience, that has meant paying a lot more attention when making an Iceland rental car reservation. The unusual geography and weather of this northern nation mean that the most basic insurance for a car rental in Iceland simply may not suffice.

Through trying to secure a Keflavik car rental on our first trip (KEF is Iceland’s international airport), I experienced what is commonly known as sticker shock. Judging by the many travel forums dedicated to finding a cheap Iceland rental car – I was not alone.

Not only was the cost of getting a rental car in Iceland airport a shock, but sorting through Iceland car rental insurance options was also challenging.

Renting a car and driving around the country is by far the best way to travel in Iceland.

By hiring a car people taking a trip to Iceland can choose a road trip that fits their budget and schedule. This way they have the flexibility and independence required in a country with many natural wonders to explore and admire.

  • Rent a manual transmission
  • Manual vehicles are in less demand – people don’t want to have to shift (ahem, Americans).
  • Rent a diesel vehicle
  • The diesel price per liter is more economical to fill up the vehicle.
  • Rent a smaller car
  • Are you visiting in the summer? Are you just driving the Golden Circle or Ring Road? Then you don’t need a 4wd vehicle. You can save looooots of money by renting a small car.
  • Want to save money on your car rental? Use #LWV at checkout for 5% off your entire rental price!
  • Visit outside of peak season
  • Peak tourist season is between May and September, oftentimes rental companies list vehicles at a reduced rate outside of those months.
