Location information for Iceland

Iceland is best explored by rental car. HireCars.co.uk has over 9 pick-up locations in Iceland. This means there is always a pick-up location close to your destination.

Visit Iceland to witness some of Mother Nature's most splendid sights from glaciers, geysers, volcanoes, forests and coastline to whales and wild reindeer. The main cities provide places to shop and accommodation, and cheap car hire in Iceland is the only way to get around the country without missing anything.

Native trees are scarce in the country, mainly due to its cold climate, so Icelandic people traditionally made their houses from grass and turf and these old fashioned buildings can be found dotted throughout the countryside. Fish, dairy products and lamb are the main staple in the Icelandic diet and as in western countries, fast food eateries are available.

Reykjavik is the capital city of Iceland and there is a wide range of things to do and see here. The Old Town area is full of historical buildings and rows of brightly coloured houses that stand in stark contrast to each other. The quirky Hallgrimskirkja church was built to resemble a mountain of flowing lava and the National Museum house historic artefacts on Norse and Icelandic cultures.

For visitors wanting to go whale watching, take the short drive to Husavik in the north of the country and in the south is Vatnajokull, Europe's largest glacier. Hofn is the best town for trips out to see the massive ice block and nearby is Egilsstadir, where many tourists go to spot the wild reindeer that live in the dense forest.

Hot springs are a great tourist attraction and the ‘Great Geysir' is the finest in Iceland. Everything is easily accessible by hire car in Iceland and the Kverkfjoll ice caves and Hverfell crater are also popular tourist hotspots. The international airport in Reykjavik welcomes daily flights to and from Europe and the US and Iceland is also easy to get from Denmark by ferry.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.
Is HireCars.co.uk the cheapest? Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town. What do I need to do when picking up a car? To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient. Are there any additional costs? In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance). What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental? In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car. What is a worry-free label? This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you. How can I change or cancel my reservation? You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less). When will I get a confirmation of my booking? Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours). Which car rental companies are compared by HireCars.co.uk? at this location
