Iceland Car Hire is a popular choice for travellers and adventurers looking to explore this fascinating island.
Situated in the North Atlantic Iceland has a history stretching back to the 9th century. Being only about 2 and half hours from the UK it's a popular short stay destination particularly for the opportunity to see the Northern Lights.
The people are friendly and love showing off their island - which is easy as they almost all are totally fluent in our language.
Reykjavik is a very compact city but with many cultural attractions, great restaurants, and interesting shopping. And it's only a few minutes drive to some of the widest terrain you can imagine. Geysers, hot springs, waterfalls, puffins and much more!
Whether you are in the hot night spots of ReykjavÃk, or at the Blue Lagoon and its geothermal spa, you will be thankful that you rented a car in Iceland to make the most of your visit.
Car hire almost always includes basic insurance, including Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Liability Insurance, but there is normally an excess of between £1,000 and £2,000 that the renter remains liable for in the case of accident or theft, and doesn't cover damage to tyres, wheels, underbody, roof and glass. Given the inevitable ways the roads suffer in the weather, chipped and cracked windscreens are a risk so stand alone car hire excess insurance which covers both the excess and the items of the car mentioned above is great value at a couple of pounds a day.
We can also help with insurance to cover sand, volcanic ash and gravel damage which can occur in Iceland.
