Frequently Asked Questions

Got questions? You’re in luck! We’ve already provided answers to the most common questions regarding car rentals in Iceland.

No, renting an FWD vehicle in Iceland is not essential if you plan on sticking to the main roads and not going far from the city; however, if you visit Iceland in winter or plan on exploring the more inaccessible corners of the island, like the F-roads, it is an absolute must!

Renting a standard 4-wheel drive vehicle in Iceland for 1 week will cost you around $336 ($48 per day), depending on the season and the size of the vehicle. On a budget? Check out our city car rentals in Reykjavik!

The vehicles included in our Standard SUV/4x4 category have an elevated under-carriage, which makes them ideal to travel on gravel or snow, and come in many different shapes and sizes. The Suzuki Jimny and the Dacia Duster are perfect examples of cheap 4x4 rentals in Iceland.

Yes, renting a 4x4 in Iceland will give you access to the totality of the country! 4x4 vehicles are the ideal choice if you want to venture out of Reykjavik and the Ring Road, discover the hidden wonders of Iceland, and explore the Highlands via the challenging Icelandic F-roads.

No, off-road driving is completely forbidden in Iceland due to the damage that car tires do to the natural habitat. Ignoring regulations can lead to high fines of over 100,000 ISK (around $770) and, in extreme cases, even imprisonment.

WHY RENT A STANDARD 4X4 SUV IN ICELAND?

 

  • Limited Public Transport. Iceland’s public transportation network only extends as far as the main cities; plus, the main roads are in excellent condition and make going all the way around the island a piece of cake. That’s why Iceland is one of the best destinations for hiring a 4x4 rental vehicle. Grab your 4x4 car rental in Iceland, get on the Ring Road and enjoy the island for less!

  • Areas Only Accessible by 4x4.  While traveling around Iceland you may encounter mountain or highland roads known as ‘F-roads’. These unpaved, gravel roads will lead you to remote and off-the-beaten-path areas that can ONLY be accessed by 4x4 vehicles, making your 4x4 SUV car rental in Iceland that much more valuable.

  • Harsh Weather & Road Conditions. One thing that Iceland has become famous for is the chaotic and unreliable nature of its climate and weather conditions. You may be traveling during the autumn, the spring or even the summer, but you may still have to face adverse weather conditions, such as harsh winds, heavy rain or very low temperatures; which is why a 4WD car rental is a safe bet when visiting Iceland!

DO’S AND DON’TS OF RENTING A 4x4 IN ICELAND

We understand that while driving your 4x4 SUV car rental around Iceland, the jaw-dropping landscapes and the wild nature of the island may inspire you to go off the road and carve your own route through forests, rivers or mountains, but it’s actually illegal and punishable with a giant fine or even jail time, so DON’T!

On a side note, lights and seatbelt on, ALWAYS, and phone off, unless your hired 4x4 car rental has a hands-free kit! Now, a little less conversation, a little more action! Go, go, go!
