Car rental in Reykjavik

Hi folks,

I'll be in Reykjavik for a week over Easter and am looking to rent a car for the duration of my stay. Can anyone recommend a good rental company, please? Or ones to avoid! smile

Thanks in advance,
Lynsey

You could ask Maike (globetrottingvoyager).  She organised our car rental around Iceland, and it was fab.  There are a lot to choose from, as it is quite common for tourists to get out and about.

We rent a car with Orange car rental booking online in advance. They are cheaper than the others but the office and car depot is 10 minutes drive with shuttle bus from Keflavik airport. http://www.orangecarrental.is/

Re: Car rental in Reykjavik

We rented a car just for a day at Europcar with some discount from airline's millage program.
Their service was fair enough.
This applies to anyone who rent a car from any companies, but check very carefully with scratches and damages of the car with the rental car company that those damages are not caused by yourself before you rent and check what is insured and what is not with each insurance policies. I'd also recommend you to keep evidence of trip meter before and after you travel just in case.
(When we rented a car from them, even though we pumped the fuel till maximum before you return the car but the fuel meter didn't go "full" and were charged extra money for fuel, but could get refund immediately that we could prove that the fuel meter wasn't working all right.)

And around the time of Easter can be still snowy. Weather in Iceland is very unstable and wind can be strong. Make sure to be safe!
