Of the 25 cars I’ve rented so far this year, this was by far the worst vehicle. It had no A/C, the wind leaked through the windows, it was filthy, and was completely stripped down option with 110k kilometers. The sales staff was beyond pushy with the insurance, practically threatening me. Awful

Drop off super, super easy. Pick up staff took a time consuming, impolite, hard drive attempt to up sell every single customer. I spent 40 minutes in a line of five people with every cashier counter filled.More efficient pick up system.

Decent car even though I chose the cheapest one. Really good value for money.The queue and waiting time to pick up the car was very long. A good sign that it’s popular, but they need more people at work so it goes faster.

The staff was fine and pleasant, that wasn’t an issue. The car also drove well and handled Iceland’s roads very well.At check in I spent about an hour in line. It was ridiculous, way too long, and apparently all too common at this location. I wa furious and could have gone to another rental area off the airport site faster and cheaper. I only selected this one because it was in the airport and it was a huge mistaK

It was closedThe website said open 24 hours. I got to airport desk at 2:00 AM and it was closed. There was a sign with a phone number...I called and it said the number was not in service. I found another international phone number online...that also was not in service. There was no one at the airport information desk. I was only in Iceland for the day and that is why I needed to pick up the car as soon as I landed. So the car was useless to me and I never picked it up. I need a refund

The Toyota Yaris that could!The check in and check out process was fairly quick and simple. We got a small Toyota Yaris that took us all over Iceland, including the Westfjords and up mountains!Our Garmin GPS device was very out of date and in a few cases didn't even register the roads we needed on its map. It led us after several times which was frustrating.

Very easy straightforward process to pick up the car at the airport. The extra insurances were presented well and no pressuring to take them. We did opt for the windshield protection. Also the shuttle to the airport after drop off was fast.The drop off was a bit confusing. It was presented on the paperwork we received but might have been better to have a verbal explanation presented when we picked up the car too. They were quite busy when we were dropping off so there was no one in the office and no sign indicating the process so several people were just standing around waiting.

Overall we had a great experience with the car it was exactly what we wanted! The car was very clean and in good working order.The check in process was very slow and the check out process was chaotic. I had to go inside to find someone to check in our car and there were so many cars returned there was no where to park.

Insurance SCAMCar was clean and new.ACE Car Rental is a complete scam run by bad people. This was our first time renting a car ourselves (we just turned 25 years old). When they showed us the car it was night and they had washed it down IMMEDIATELY before showing us. The car looked new, and they said it was relatively new but it was difficult to see any marks. We were in a hurry so I took one photo of a small dent and we signed off on the car. We drove it on roads only for less than TWO days before bringing it back. The guy (from Greece, I didn't get his name) "found" a scratch on the side that looked like from a key or knife, and small dents on the hood (easily masked by water droplets at night). We bought their 2nd level of insurance and still had to pay $500 to them. After I disputed it he went on to tell me how ACE has a partnership with a garage where they take their cars. The "garage" is also owned by ACE. They set arbitrarily high repair prices and scam tourists. This was the cheapest rental place we could find and a huge mistake. Furthermore, I accidentally left my passport and cash in the center console with 100% certainty. The same guy from Greece claims he was the only one in the car since I dropped it off and denies having seen anything. I searched my photos for evidence of when I had it on my person and called the few places we had been that day to check. We can say with 100% certainty that he stole it from the car. We missed our flights and had to spend more money we couldn't afford to get a new passport, flights, hotel, and expensive Icelandic food. I'm so inspired by this series of events that I will post this everywhere I can leave a review. Good luck out there people!

This was among the best car rental experiences I have ever had. I had read such terrible reviews about rental cars and rental companies in Iceland so I had very low expectations and was quite nervous about getting ripped off. But it turns out the staff member I dealt with (I think his name is PRZEMEK?) was exceedingly helpful, thoughtful, generous with his time and straightforward. It could not have been a better experience because of him.
10.0 Excellent2021 Jun 02
Geysir part of this rental was great, nice people, great price, acceptable car.This booking went through kayak and then through rentalcars.com. Someone screwed up because they allowed us to book it at 6am while the office only opened at 8am and the shuttle to rentals only started running at 7am. That would have been ok if they had send us information on how to use the key lock boxes but they never did.

Hassle free rentalThe interaction I had with Europacar staff both at pick-up and return was first rate. Both were pleasant, professional without any intent to hassle or nitpick. Or that I felt pressured to add something I did not want to add. The car was new, clean, comfortable in excellent working order. I highly commend Europacar for their excellent, professional and I might add nice staff with excellent English speaking skills.The cost which was not excessive by Icelandic standards but far more expensive than my home country. This of course is not a criticism of Europacar but a function of the reality of car rental/hire in Iceland. The cost to return the car at the Eastern end of Iceland doubled the cost.
9.6 Excellent2018 Sep 02
Iceland camper van (a thing of the past?)Relatively new van, ran great, and the custom shelving was quite handy, especially the pull out cutting board table. Plenty of room for 2. Friendly crew.It was a panel van so with the custom shelving there is zero visibility of whats behind you or in your side blind spots. Outside of the city you can get by but be prepared to have your passenger on the lookout for you. With the new law / rule you need to park at camping sites and pay the fee, so seems to defeat the point of the camper van.

Perfect car, perfect service.Far better service than the Budget office next door (at Reykjavik/KEF), which is what we used last time. Fast, friendly, helpful, and no-nonsense. The car was in great condition, and met our needs perfectly.

First vehicle I was given had a flat tire light on - but it was immediately replaced with a nicer vehicle when I pointed it out. Vehicle rental overall was great. On returning, there had been some minor issues (chips due to gravel roads) that I reported and this was handled very smoothly and professionally by the team.Since this rental was in Iceland I would have loved the option to get a larger 4x4 vehicle. However, this was not available for 7 passengers! Overall, very good though.
7.6 Good2017 Jun 21
The staff were very friendly and professional.I had expected a slightly higher quality car. The various categories/tiers made it difficult to honestly assess value. For example, we selected a "VW Golf or similar" and ended up with a Kia. I do not consider the Kia similar given we did not select the economy category.

Friendly staff, easy pick up and drop off.Get comprehensive car insurance before you go. Given the high winds and loose gravel on the roads its common to get chips and scratches. The insurance they sell you when you pick up the car is very expensive, which is how they offer relatively cheap hire fees.

I rented a car in Iceland and went to pick it up. They were very high pressure for upselling claiming I would need an SUV to survive and would need to upgrade insurance due to weather conditions and that I would see so many abandoned cars on the side of the road from people who rented cars without insurance that got ruined due to winds or gravel. It was a scam.

8.8 Excellent2019 Nov 26
Very easy process, staff was attentive and welcoming. Car was nice, no issues.My only complaint was that I feel I was upsold how 'Iceland is different from other countries so the insurance is more worthwhile here.' I came in November and other then some rain and higher winds, I really didn't think the weather was all that special. I didn't encounter any gravel roads going to the main sites along the southern coast and their certainly wasn't need for the wind and ash insurance. Now certainly these things happen, of course, and it's good to be aware, but I felt like the way everyone was talking about the weather I would be stupid not to take it, yet the changes were really not that different from my home country. So maybe I would amend the shtick on insurance to 'useful if you only drive in sunny weather' or something similar.

Gave us a car with a known mechanical issueStaff were friendly. Pick up and drop off went quickly- sometimes too quickly.We had reserved a Jeep Wrangler, and they first gave us a Dacia Duster. Which is not even close. It was older and very dirty inside, and had many scratches and dings on the outside. We drove it less than five miles, and noticed an awful sound when we turned tightly. We looked and determined that the interior of the wheel well was loose and the wheel was rubbing it when we turned. When we took it back, they said ‘oh yeah, the Duster makes a weird noise when you turn, but it’s not serious’. We refused that car, and we’re goven a substitute (again, nowhere close to similar to a Jeep Wrangler), but cleaner. This time though, it was pouring rain and they had a long line, and when the guy brought us the second car he almost ran over our son because he was backing up so quickly and then just handed us the keys and ran off without a walk around. We walked around the car in the rain and wind and took photos with our phone of all the dings and scratches, and left. Predictably, when we returned the car, the woman at the desk asked about some of the dings (which were rusted, and obviously didn’t happen in two days!) and we had to show her the time stamped pictures to prove that we hadn’t made them despite the guy not taking time to make notes. Frustrating, but she was pleasant and we knew she was just doing her job.

A “Tahoe” is not a “Tahoe”GPS, awesome safety features, great gas mileageA full size SUV in Iceland is somewhere between a midsize suv and a full size suv. We could not fit in the Nissan that they gave me as an equivalent to a Tahoe. There are not American size cars in Iceland. I had to pay an extra $100/day for a shuttle van that could fit 6 people and our 6 suitcases. The Nissan worked great before we had to add our luggage.

This car made me want to take it back home with meWe got a Renault hatchback for our Iceland trip. The roads were treacherous at times but this car had so many sensors and fun tech that I wanted to take it home with me. Great car! Great gas mileage!Gps is something you need in Iceland for sure. So I brought my Garmin nuvi with me(cell phone gps works just as well). The woman at the counter told me that for an extra charge I could get gps in the car. I told her no. When I went to check, gps was built into the car. That just seems like they're trying to get more money from you. That didn't sit too well with me and my wife.

The pick up process was extremely slowThe line to pick up the car was long and moved very slow. It took us about an hour and 20 minutes to get through it. The person helping us tried hard to sell us on the extra insurance coverage by trying to scare us into buying it even though I already had purchased protection from a third party.

You can walk from the airport counter to the parking lot to get your car (in Iceland).The line at the counter was too long and we waited, and waited and waited. The car we thought we were renting was not available.

  • When coming to the remote town of Keflavik, renting a car is definitely a must; Iceland is a popular destination for road trips and public transport is not well-established in this secluded corner of the world. Get the most out of your island experience and hire your own four wheels upon arrival at Keflavik to explore the stunningly untouched landscape of Iceland. You can also visit Reykjavik, which is about 50 minutes away, and probably even catch a glimpse of the Northern Lights.
  • When landing at Keflavik International Airport, head to the car hire service desks in the arrivals hall and choose from companies like Avis or Hertz, among some others. With a car, the ride to central Reykjanesbaer (which is the municipality made up of Keflavik, Njarovik, and Hafnir) will only take 5 minutes, whereas public transport or walking will take half an hour.
  • Traffic jams are unlikely to be encountered during a trip to Iceland, even though most Icelandic people own a car, as there is little to no public transport available. One of the worst mistakes to commit in Iceland when driving a car is leaving the road and driving into a field or any strip of nature. Fines can be exorbitantly high, as the Icelandic people are very fierce when it comes to protecting the nature of their island, so always stick to the roads that stretch across the entire island and make exploring it an easy and enjoyable undertaking.
  • Iceland is particularly famous for the Northern Lights, but, when driving through the countryside or Keflavik, don’t get distracted by this extraordinary nature spectacle. Many accidents in Iceland happen because tourists stop their car in the middle of the road to take pictures of the scenic pastures or Northern Lights. Especially as long strips of roads are not well-lit, this is a dangerous undertaking that should be avoided. Find a proper parking spot, park the car, and enjoy the phenomenon safely.
  • Book your rental car in Keflavik at least 5 weeks before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Mini rental cars in Keflavik are around 76% cheaper than other car types, on average
