F-roads (highland roads) 

Our 4x4 campers are allowed on F-roads in Iceland.  Motor Homes are NOT allowed on the F-roads.  Please contact us for further information.


Crossing rivers in Iceland requires experience that most travelers do not have. It is therefore not allowed by rental vehicles in Iceland. Some rivers such as Krossá in Þórsmörk (thorsmork) are particularly dangerous.

Please note: Not all providers are able to offer drop off at the airport.
Please note: Not all providers are able to offer pickup in Reykjavik.

Road conditions in Iceland vary substantially. Travelers can have information on driving conditions at Icelandic Road Administration. In Iceland it is mandatory for young children to travel in safety seats while in a vehicle. A child seats are generally suitable for children aged from 6 months to 4 years of age.  Please check our driving tips page carefully before your trip

Car types

Our partners reserve the right to substitute vehicles when the reserved car types are not available. The substituted vehicle must always be of the same quality (or improved) as the booked vehicle.

Gasoline / Diesel

The rental car should be returned with the same amount of gasoline/diesel as on delivery, or a charge will be made for the difference.

Local Taxes  

All local taxes are included in the prices.


Third part liability is equivalent to the amount stipulated by Icelandic law at each time. This also applies to the amount of individual driver liability. Third party coverage and personal accident insurance is automatically included in your rental.  

Super collision damage waiver (SCDW) 

SCDW insurance covers the driver's liability in excess of EURO 1000 for 2WD and EURO 2000 for 4WD or mini-buses. Our partners are however free to offer improved liability and if they choose to do so it will be stated in the extras (step 3).

The renter is, however, always responsible for the following damages:
negligence, driving while intoxicated, damage to tires, headlights, wind-screen and the underside of the car, damage caused by loose rocks which get  hrown at the car on gravel roads, damages to the engine of the car caused by water getting into the motor.

Additionally, we offer Gravel Protection (GP), (damage to windscreen, headlights and the car when gravel or rocks get thrown on the vehicle by another car) and theft protection (TP).


All our partners offer 24/7 service assistance. In case of break down you can call the number the rental car provider will provide. In most cases the car rental will be able to provide a substitute vehicle within 12 hours.
