CAR RENTAL IN ICELAND
Is it worth it?
RENTING A CAR IN ICELAND IS VERY EXPENSIVE!
Since the COVID-19 hit the country, many businesses struggled to survive during the pandemic. Car rentals were severely affected as they needed to sell their fleet to keep afloat.
As the travel market has started to recover, the demand for car rentals is more than the current stock. Prices have increased to astronomical numbers, and booking private tours or a complete travel package can be even more affordable than renting a car.
When you rent a car, you also need to calculate the fuel cost that comes with it. The average price of regular gas in Iceland is $7.50 per gallon (as of 07.27.2021). You can find current prices for Icelandic Gas Stations here.
Keep in mind all the add-ons and extra costs of renting a car in Iceland. For example, insurance fees with a primary or extended coverage (CDW, SCDW, TP, GP) to lower your deductible, airport pick up and drop off charges, and don't forget about the extra driver's fees. We get charged for every option we choose, making the car rental less affordable, especially when we need to organize the entire journey ourselves.
What about the weather? The weather in Iceland is very unpredictable. Constantly changing, and never the same for an extended period, especially during winter. Driving in the Icelandic winter can be very challenging.

Imagine that you spend all that money renting a car! Then you still need to deal with all the trip preparation, booking activities, dealing with cancellations, issues with Google maps, not finding places; you name it.
We believe that booking private tours and private packages will offer a better value for your money.
Enjoy your vacation to Iceland without worrying about mistakes with reservations, delays, re-schedule, or any other issues that may arise with a car rental.
After this year in quarantine, you deserve the best possible experience, and if you choose to travel with us, rest assured that you will be in good hands.
