Got questions? You’re in luck! We’ve already provided answers to the most common questions regarding car rentals in Iceland.
The vehicles included in our Large SUV/4x4 category are similar to the standard 4x4 rentals in Iceland, but more spacious. These vehicles are ideal to travel on gravel or snow thanks to their high ground clearance, 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.
Renting a large 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 in our Large 4x4 category are actually the ideal choice if you want to venture out of the Ring Road and discover the hidden wonders of Iceland. Our spacious 4x4 and SUV rentals 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 an off-road 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.
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!
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!
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.
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 4x4 SUV 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!
