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.
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.
