Frequently Asked Questions

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

Renting a 4-wheel drive 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 during the winter months or plan on exploring the more remote corners of the island (like the F-roads when they open during the summer), it is an absolute must!
On average, renting a large 4-wheel drive vehicle in Iceland for 1 week will cost you around $630 ($90 per day), depending on the season and the size of the vehicle.
The vehicles included in our Large SUV/4x4 category are elevated, which makes them ideal to travel on gravel or snow, and come in many different shapes and sizes. The Nissan X-Trail and the Ford Explorer are perfect examples of vehicles included in this category. It’s up to you to choose the right 4WD or SUV vehicle based on how big your travel group is, how much storage space you need and how comfortable you want your travels to be.
4x4 vehicles are actually the ideal choice if you want to venture out of the Ring Road and discover the hidden wonders of Iceland. Your 4x4 or SUV rental will open a world of opportunities, giving you access to the totality of the Land of Fire and Ice. Please take into account that the famous Icelandic F-roads are only open from June to September and a 4x4 vehicle is absolutely compulsory, so if you happen to travel during the summertime, they will be well within your grasp!
No, off-road driving is completely forbidden in Iceland due to the damage that car tyres 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 LARGE 4X4 SUV IN ICELAND?

  • Hiring a rental vehicle in Iceland is always a good choice! It’s a cost-efficient way to move around the island at your own time and pace. On top of that, public transport in Iceland is very limited outside of the big cities, making it more difficult to explore even the most accessible areas, such as Snaefellsnes Peninsula or the Golden Circle.

  • Our Large SUV & 4x4 rental category includes high, robust, spacious 4-wheel drive vehicles with the capacity to carry big groups of people and tons of storage space! They are the perfect choice for off-road driving and discovering the most remote and inaccessible parts of Iceland. Bring your whole family and start exploring!

  • While traveling around Iceland in your rental car you may encounter ‘F-roads’; this is the name given in Iceland to mountain roads leading to the Icelandic Highlands. They are unpaved, gravel roads that will take you off the beaten track and to the more remote areas, where you’ll find most of the island’s natural wonders.

    They are only open from June to September and a 4x4 vehicle is absolutely compulsory, so you're in luck! Should you want to travel beyond the city limits and explore the whole island, your Large 4x4 SUV rental has got you covered!

  • Beware! In terms of driving regulations, the Icelandic nation is very proud of its virgin natural landscapes and strives to preserve them, so carving out your own off-road path with your rental vehicle is illegal and punishable with a very big fine or even jail time.

    Make sure to keep your headlights and seatbelt on at all times (no matter what the season or time of day is). Want to use your cellphone while behind the wheel? No can do! Make sure your hired vehicle includes a hands-free kit if you don’t want to have to stop every time your phone rings.

IMPROVE YOUR LARGE 4X4 SUV RENTAL: CHOOSE YOUR EXTRAS!

Having the right equipment while on your Iceland road trip makes all the difference. At Reykjavik Cars we make sure to keep stocked up on all the essentials you might need during your trip and offer you a long list of options to upgrade your rental.

Not sure what to add to your Large 4x4 SUV rental vehicle? Here are our customers’ TOP 3 extras to help you decide!

Gravel Insurance

When traveling down unpaved, gravel and dirt roads, it is a regular occurrence for gravel to hit vehicles’ windshields, headlights and body causing mild to severe damage, thus making Gravel Protection the perfect extra to ensure 100% coverage for your Large 4x4 SUV rental!

Extra Driver

Iceland has so many hidden treasures to explore that sitting behind the wheel all day can be tiring. That need not be an issue! Just add an extra driver to your insurance policy, take turns in the pilot seat of your Large 4x4 SUV rental and cruise the island in comfort.

Baby Seat

There's nothing more important than guaranteeing your own safety and that of your family. That's why adding a baby seat to your Large SUV 4x4 rental for your road trip around Iceland isn't up for discussion, so choose the right seat for your child (0-13kg, 9-18kg and 15-36kg) and hit the road!
