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.
