Location information for Iceland

Iceland is best explored by rental car. has over 16 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 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.
