Location information for Iceland

Iceland is best explored by rental car. CarhireSaving has over 9 pick-up locations in Iceland. This means there is always a pick-up location close to your destination.

Iceland is a popular holiday hotspot thanks to its natural attractions that are dotted throughout the pretty countryside, from hot springs to icy glaciers. Cheap car hire in Iceland is the best way to make your way around the country as there is so much to see and do at your own pace.

The capital of Iceland is Reykjavik, which translates to ‘Smoky Bay'. The interesting old city is full of white-washed wooden houses contrasted by a host of brightly painted concrete houses. There are plenty of bars and restaurants to try out, and Hallgrimskirkja is an unusual church building that resembles a pile of lava.

Take a hire car in Iceland on a leisurely drive to the southern central area that is full of natural wonders. The two-tiered waterfall known as Gullfoss is at its best during the winter and to the west of the waterfall is a region called Geysir, home to a volcano known as the Great Geysir.

In the northeast of Iceland is Myvatn reserve, where tourists can enjoy volcano scenery, high peaks and rugged terrain, and this is a great region for bird spotting. Icelanders boast a rich heritage and culture and local cuisine can be sampled in all major towns and cities throughout the country.

There are many wild animals to spot while driving through Iceland including the Arctic fox, Icelandic sheep and the sturdy breed of Icelandic horse. There are pleasant coastal areas where polar bear have been spotted as well as colourful puffins and kittiwakes. Keflavik International Airport serves as the country's main transport hub and there are plenty of places to pick up a rental car.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.
Is CarhireSaving the cheapest? Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town. What do I need to do when picking up a car? To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient. Are there any additional costs? In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance). What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental? In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car. What is a worry-free label? This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you. How can I change or cancel my reservation? You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less). When will I get a confirmation of my booking? Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours). Which car rental companies are compared by CarhireSaving? at this location
