Excellent service, slow pickupGreat car, awesome drop-off experience. Attentive employees who knew what they were doing.The pickup still took more than 1.5 hours, even though I had reserved/booked in advance, which made me miss my hotel check-out time. One unfortunate employee was left to deal with a long line of customers who hadn't booked in advance, further penalizing those who had planned ahead.

1.9 Horrible2021 Sep 07
I had rented a car for the incorrect dates, but immediately attempted to change the dates and the website would not allow me to do so. I attempted to call, but there was no answer. I emailed, but got no response. As a last resort, canceled the reservation on the website, but it did not list as canceled, until, eventually, it did say it was cancelled, but charged me the entire cost of the rental as a ‘cancellation fee.’ I would like my money back.

The car was exactly what we ordered so we were very happy with that. The only issue was how long we had to wait in line to rent. They did not have that many people at the Reykjavik airport pickup to help. Other than that it was a great experience!

Pick up was a bit confusing, mostly because I misread the email. Would be awesome if there were signs for dollar somewhere in the airport, even if that sign just said to press the pickup button.

Thrifty and Dollar are not in the terminal. You catch the shuttle at the departure side of the airport under the "Meeting Point" sign. Only a 3-4 minute shuttle ride. I think this is the better option than renting in the airport because there is no wait once you get to site and they shuttle you right back to the departure entrance when you're finished. If you rent at airport it is quite a long walk back to terminal from the rental car drop-off, with luggage, and they do get a bit of rain in Iceland ' ). Keep their phone number handy so you can call if they're not yet at the Meeting Point when you're ready.

Dollar Staff was very friendly ands helpful.Information on getting from airport in Reykjavik to the rental location. It was VERY confusing and unclear.
6.8 Good2019 Aug 25
The staff member was nice and once we were able to finally see someoneThe rental system needs to be cleaner, having an individual walk out to the car is rather slow since then you loose a agent and leave people waiting way to long (we waited an hour and a half.

long wait, poor servicelong wait to drop off no cover for rain protection waiting for shuttle bus back to airport for departing flight, also long wait for the bus headlights need adjustment, driving at night difficult without bright lights on

Great customer service! Different idea of an "SUV"The man at the rental counter was friendly, patient and generally great. He took his time with us and went above and beyond to help us. He was really wonderful to deal with.What we reserved (and the photos that explained what we had reserved) looked very different from what we got. We expected a mid-size SUV and the vehicle was small.

car troublescomfortable ford focus. they have a free shuttle service from their main location.the car had mechanical problems almost immediately which got worse over the trip and eventually had to be towed and replaced. We had to press to get a day refunded which they did eventually. it was a dangerous situation on a brand new car. Lucky I wasn't hit. they did rectify it fairly promptly.

Top tips for renting a car at Reykjavik Domestic Airport

  • Renting a car in Iceland allows you to plan a road trip that fits your budget and schedule. A car rental at Reykjavik Domestic Airport gives you the freedom you need to explore a country with countless natural gems. To have your ride ready as soon as you arrive at Reykjavik Domestic Airport (RKV), reserve a vehicle via KAYAK, where you can compare prices offered by various car rental firms. Take advantage of our search tools to save time and select your preferred method of payment, fuel policy, and mileage in advance.
  • Before making any reservation, consider the road you will be driving on from highland, gravel, and asphalt road. The car rental agents are very much willing to advise you on the choice of ride. For instance, a robust 4x4 or 4WD comes highly recommended for road trips in the highlands. An SUV would also be a great option for off-road adventures into the Vatnsnes Peninsula and West Fjords. In contrast, a smaller 2WD is ideal for cruising the main roads in Iceland, such as Reykjanes Peninsula drive. Don’t forget the amount of space your luggage will occupy when selecting a small compact car.
  • After booking through KAYAK, you will get an email confirming where to collect keys for your Reykjavik Domestic Airport car rental. Carefully peruse those details to get an idea of where to get the car before flying into RKV Airport. Once arrived, check the car exterior and interior to record any damage and inform the rental agency. Take your time to understand the fuel policy, and where necessary, fill the tank before setting off to other Iceland destinations.
  • Dropping off your car rental at Reykjavik Domestic Airport should be a stress-free experience with the return areas located right in front of the terminal’s arrival hall. Sometimes, the return areas are in different car parks from where you picked, but near the airport. All the information you need to know about drop-off centers should be in your confirmation email or the car rental T&C. For further direction, ask the customer representatives at the key collection desks.
  • Book your rental car at Reykjavik Domestic Airport at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
