Great rental from start to finish. The staff at their Keflavik office and the customer service team are really nice and very helpful. The car was in good condition, very comfy to drive & economical (we did the whole Route 1) The rental price was really good, definitely the cheapest one around. I highly recommend this rental company.

Booking online in New Zealand, we had no idea which rental company to use in Iceland and chose Reykjavik Cars mainly on price and some good reviews. We were not disappointed. The compact car we chose was great to drive, the friendly team at the Reykjavik city office gave us all the information we needed regarding road rules and driving in Iceland, and the price was very reasonable.

We had a great experience with Reykjavík Cars! Our car was ready when we landed, it worked great the entire trip. The WiFi was helpful in navigating the island and worked seamlessly. Drop off was easy. I prefer to try and use local companies while traveling to keep money in the country I am going to and this fit that bill as well!

The process was seamless, from booking the reservation to picking up and returning the car. The vehicle itself was in excellent condition and exceeded all of my expectations. The staff were friendly, helpful, and went above and beyond to ensure that my rental experience was pleasant and stress-free. They were quick to respond to our email queries prior to booking as well. I highly recommend this car hire company to anyone in need of a reliable and well-maintained vehicle. Their competitive prices ,and exceptional service make them a top choice in car rental. Thank you Reykjavik cars, we had a memorable trip.

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

Iceland is full of remote natural wonders, many inaccessible without your own means of transport. Renting a car in Iceland provides comfort and gives you the freedom to plan your trip the way you want, making the most out of every minute spent on the island.
Renting an automatic car in Iceland for 1 week will cost you around $665 ($95 per day), depending on the season and the vehicle choice.
Currently, as shown in the following price/quality benchmark of Iceland car rentals, the least expensive option is Reykjavik Cars. The reason you won’t find us on rental comparison sites such as Kajak or RentalCars is because we only work with local companies and are 100% based in Iceland in order to get the best deals and provide the highest possible customer service.

All driving licenses issued from the U.S.A, Canada and the European Economic Area (EEA) are valid in Iceland. A driving license from anywhere else is valid provided it has:

  • A license number.
  • The license holder's photograph.
  • A valid date.
  • Been printed in Latin characters.

If your driving license does not fulfill ANY of the above requirements then you MUST obtain an International Driving License to be able to drive in Iceland.

The registered driver must be at least 20 years of age and have held a full drivers license for at least 12 months.

The minimum age of the registered driver may vary according to the type of vehicle hired. Please check our terms and conditions.

You will also need a valid driver’s license, passport and a valid credit card to rent a vehicle in Iceland.

It depends on the travel insurance policy that you have purchased. Take a good look at the fine print to see what it covers, if anything.

In any case, and because it’s better to be safe than sorry, make sure that the same person appears on the travel insurance and on the rental agreement, and that if you incur any damage, you report it within 24 hours of the event.

As you’ll probably want to venture out of Reykjavik and explore the island further, we recommend renting an automatic four-wheel drive (aka. 4x4) or SUV, as it will guarantee your mobility despite adverse weather conditions and give you the chance to reach as many far off corners of Iceland as possible.

The price for fuel in Iceland is high and tends to peak during the summer months.

For example, during August 2021 the price of gas in Iceland was 225.8 ISK per liter ($1.75 USD). That’s nearly $7 USD per gallon, so keep the high gas prices in mind when planning your trip!

Where to find us

  • Keflavik Office: between 5 AM and 2 AM (variable depending on the rental car you choose)
  • Reykjavik Office: between 8 AM and 6 PM (variable depending on the rental car you choose)
