Iceland Car Rental

Top Driving Tips in Iceland

When driving in Iceland, there a few key things to remember:

  • Just like in the US, traffic travels on the right hand side of the road in Iceland.
  • Many vehicles in Iceland are manual. When renting a car, be sure to select a rental car with the transmission type you are most comfortable driving.
  • Icelandic law requires that vehicle headlights be on at all times, day and night, when driving.

Iceland Car Rental Locations

A rental car is the perfect way to see all of Iceland's one-of-a-kind destinations and offers visitors the flexibility of traveling at their own pace. Some popular destinations include:

  • Keflavik –  located approximately 45 minutes from Reykjavik and known for adventure. Here you'll find the Golden Circle and Iceland’s Ring Road.

  • Reykjavik – an ideal car rental location for visitors looking to spend some time in Reykjavik but who also want to explore the sights outside of the city, including one of the may hot springs around the area or sightseeing at Rejkjavik Skarfabakki Harbour.
