Location information for Iceland

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

Iceland draws in tourists year after year with its big city offerings and natural surroundings that are just waiting to be explored. The natural attractions in the country are diverse and just about all landscapes can be seen here, from glaciers and volcanoes to forests and hot springs. The only way to see everything that Iceland has to offer is to arrange cheap car hire in Iceland.

The capital city of Reykjavik is home to a busy international airport and is the main gateway into the country. The National Museum is a great way to learn about Norse and Icelandic culture and history and the Old Town area is home to interesting buildings including a strange church that was made to look like a mountain of hot lava.

Just north of the capital and only a short drive in a hire car is the big city of Akureyri, where there are plenty of bars and nightclubs to enjoy a night out. To the east of Akureyri is Myvatn nature reserve, which is filled with volcanic landscapes and birdlife and offers spectacular views over a crystal clear lake.

Those who are interested in seeing wild whales can take a trip to Husavik. To the southeast of the country is the glacier that lays claim to being the largest in Europe, Vatnajokull. The glacier is best seen by boat, with trips departing from the town called Hofn, and close by is the largest forest in Iceland, where wild reindeer roam.

Car rental in Iceland is the only real way to take in all the sights and natural wonders that can be found here. The roads are safe and easy to navigate, even in the countryside, and tourists while away the journey time by spotting native animals like the Icelandic horse and visiting polar bears.

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 ERentals 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 ERentals? at this location
