Rent A Wreck Car rental

Car rental

We recently returned from our trip and had a great experience with Rent A Wreck. Their staff is very communicative, and the cars were great; bluetooth audio equipped, and in perfect working order - no issues with the cars at all. Pickup and drop off was easy. I missed their phone call when they initially wanted to meet us at the airport, but they responded to text messages immediately.

We experienced few minor issues with a car, mostly related to damage done by previous usage, but also on electronics. Front registration plate was missing. They told us they had an agreement with police, but police stop us anyway. Fortunately, they were nice to us and the policemen refuse existence of such agreement. Otherwise everything was just fine.

I really enjoyed my visit to Iceland and having a car was certainly the best decision, my overall experience with Rent A Wreck was really good, the car was delivered to us at the airport as we arrived, it was in good condition and GPS service was available for us to use during the whole trip. The important information and details was given to us about use and return and we had no problems at all with it. Would definitely recommend!

Car had the windshield with a crack and the door was kneaded. Car was also dirty. But the price, facility of rental and drop off compensate the other issues. I would recommend a diesel car because gas price in Iceland is very expensive!

Super easy checking in & dropping off, and the Jeep Duster got great gas mileage too!

Reliable car, fair prices and nice customer service, highly recommended !

10/10 would rent again

Fantastic! Rented a 4x4 for over 2 weeks an it made it through some pretty bad roads no problems at all.

So easy, so fast and so cheap! I loved it. All went alright, and it was so comfortable to drop-off the car next by the airport ! I highly recommend it!

The car served us well on our trip. Two of the headlights weren't working but wee got then replaced and rent a wreck refunded the money promptly.

The handbrake did not work. Please fix this for the next driver. This is not a minor issue. The remote control sometimes worked, sometimes didn't. This is minor, but it was uncomfortable. Checking in and dropping off was good and convenient.

The car was good. Served the purpose we needed it for well and without much issue. The customer service was incredibly poor. Super nice guys, don't get me wrong, but I made arrangement to pick up and drop off the vehicle at the rental place and nobody was there and the door was locked at scheduled pick up and drop off times. No communication or organization amongst the company or with the customer. Wouldn't do it again.

We had many problems with the car: tires got weared very fast due to incorrect alignment of front tires...very dangerous ...must get new tires and to oraginze nearly ourself...very bad support had ro contact many times...over half a day lost....bolt of tire also was broken...very high count of km >200k km..but only three/four years old...damping very bad...fuel control incorrect values...etc. ...no more!

The pickup process was simple. Our car was perfect for our week driving around the country. Dropoff was simple and right outside of the airport terminal. I'd recommend rent-a-wreck to anyone!

It was great! I would recommend this company !

rent-a-wreck agency made a mistake when the reservation was transposed into their database, reflecting a MAY date vice MARCH. As a result, we were not met at the airport. Vehicle functioned well enough but doors could not be locked or unlocked remotely.... the key had to be inserted in the driver's door to lock/unlock the car. Suspect the battery in the key is dead.

Overall it's a good experience except the 1 hour delay during pick up

It is not a professional car rental company. Airport pickup delay 50 minutes, requested us not to check car conditions given too dark in the night, out of car electricity twice as a result of battery replacement during the journey. Car condition is overall poor.

The car was pretty great- it successfully handled some tough road conditions. My only note was that the windshield wipers should be replaced soon, or perhaps cleaned, as they did not work at 100% (and the weather in Iceland is such that you really want everything in the car operating at 100%).

The car was great, the person met us at the airport with the car and went over everything with us. I was disappointed that it had less than a quarter of a tank of gas when we got it, but I wasn't expected to return it full either...just a minor annoyance. Overall, very good value and no problems.

Car was OK, good for the price. Everything worked fine. The window-cleaning wasn't working as it wasn't refilled, but this OK for our small trip :-)

Everything was perfect: good car and good service. It was the fourth time in Iceland, next time it will be rent-a-wreck again!

Everything was great. We rented Suzuki Jimny 4x4 for 12 days and I have to say that the car performs extremely well in bad weather conditions. We had few days of very rough, windy and snowy weather, but Jimny got us through it with no problems whatsoever. Just a small note: The only negative thing was the fact that the tyres weren't that good anymore. In extreme weather conditions like in Iceland this can be very dangerous for the passengers in the car. Luckily I adjusted my speed so there weren't any problems. This is just a small warning to change the tyres as soon as you can. We are talking about people's lives here. Otherwise, thanks a lot for wonderful experience. Regards, Daniel

rented a Jimmy for our trip around the ring road - think we drove about 2500K and didn't have any issues with the car. We experienced some bad weather, but the Jimmy got us through it. The car has a narrow wheel base and seems a little top heavy, so you should go a little slower than some of the 'locals' when zipping around on the ice (only advice with the car itself). The staff are awesome here - when we dropped off the car, he took us right away to the airport so didn't lose anytime. Very personable and made the experience easy and pleasant. Would definitely recommend and will use again when we explore Iceland in the summer.

The experience was great! We made a great experience with our rented car. The whole process of renting and the delivery was easy and uncomplicated. It was better to explore Iceland by car than joining a bus tour. You can see much more and take the time as you need it at the attraction sites. We really recommend it!

Small shop but they came through for me! Despite the snow and 4:00 am arrival time, everything went pretty smooth. I did have to call them after I arrived though so make sure you have a working phone.

Great experience renting a little Suzuki 4x4 from these good people. They meet you at the arrivals and take you out to the waiting car. Super, personal touch. The car was fine and did the job. Dropping it off was effortless and convenient. The price was the best I found for 6 days rental, too. Highly recommended.

Great service. Super easy. We picked up our Suzuki Jimmy at the airport and had someone explain to us what we needed to know. The car was great. I can only recommend a car rental from these guys. Super friendly. And being able to leave the car at the airport at 6 am was brilliant. Definitely will rent with them again.

We had a great experience with the rented car. It was Hyundai i30. We did no`t have any problems with driving it. It was perfectly suitable for driving in the winter. We went to all the places we have wanted. Everything from picking it up at the airport to bringing it back there was smoothly organized. Thank you for everything!

Great car and great service! They were so accommodating and the convenience of leaving the car at the airport was a major perk at 5am in the morning. The car was really comfy and a solid ride for the sometimes rough conditions out there. Driving in Iceland is no joke, the rental definitely made us feel safe on the icy, winding and rough roads. Thanks for everything!

Although a little bit delayed picking up and dropping off the car, it was great service and price. Even they upgraded the car for free! When I go back to Iceland, I will rent again!

The process was great! It took a little longer than expected to get the car when we arrived but the service was great and the car was in great condition. I Would rent from them again!

Started out a little shaky as we were unfamiliar with the process of getting the car and had to wait over an hour, but everything worked out wonderfully. Thank you.

Great service and prices! Had fun driving in this beautiful country!

I arrived at the airport and there was no one to pick me up, even though I had provided my flight information. I checked the emails sent by Rent-a-Wreck and they provided a number I should call to "let them know when I was ready to be picked up". I tried calling several times and in different ways. No success. I sent an email. No success. After 40min, I decided to take a cab and finally arrived at the location. The service there was good, I cannot complain. When I got the car, I was informed the fuel gauge was broken and I should keep track of my gas by the kilometer range. First attempt to use the water to clean the windshield and we learned that there was no water in the container and since all the gas stations in Iceland were self service, we could not find a way to actually fill it up. The lights for "check the engine" were on the entire trip, even though nothing happened. The back light on the passenger's side was not working and the window on the driver's side was not working either. Any attempt to take a picture from the car turned into a nightmare. The drop off was uneventful. We arrived just when they were leaving to take other customers to the airport, so we did not need to wait. Over all, price and service wise, they are OK but it would be nicer to have some improved fleet offered, especially when we need to rely on the car to move within the country.

Travelling around Iceland was a great experience thanks to the car provided by Rent-a-wreck. They picked us up early and on time from the airport, gave us the 4x4 with all new features and we were off on our trip with very little time spent on initial paper work. The car had no issues during our trip. Staff was really friendly and available anytime we called. Would definitely recommend.

Thank you for the great car! Everything was fine! Fair, kind, helpful team! Maximum recommended!

Awesome experience with the company. They guys were really nice, friendly and helpful. Having a 4x4 came in handy and the car was very reliable it definitely made me feel safer going on the some of the back roads. If I ever go back to Iceland I am renting through them again!

Dacia Duster 4WD - Pick-off at airport was slightly delayed, maybe because our flight did not arrive as expected. Can't blame them for that. Otherwise the car did really well. Also, sleeping in the car was easily possible by folding the backseats and putting our sleeping pads on it. Saved us a bunch of money. Would recommend.

I got very decent Dacia Duster and drive almost 2000km without any problems. Drop off at the airport was perfect. The people that work in Rent-A-Wreck are super friendly and cooperative, I will not hesitate to recommend them to everyone!

A staff member was waiting for me at the airport and the drive to the rental office was very close. The pick-up and drop-off process was quick and easy. Staff was always very kind, knowledgeable, and professional and every person that I interacted with ensured that I had all of the information that I needed and were able to answer any questions.

The cheapest car rental in Iceland! At least if you want 4x4 and with all the insurance to have the peace of mind. I would definitely use them again!

We had a perfect experience with Rent a Wreck. They guys were super helpful and the car was very affordable. Having the freedom of our own, reliable vehicle made our trip around the golden circle and around the ring road memorable. Would highly recommend and use this service again.

Hello! Hire a Dacia Duster 2014 diesel for 4 days. I had read comments from people who complained that cars were often not what companies promised, or were in disrepair and ruined their holiday. This is not the case of Rent A Wreck. Rent A Wreck meets the conditions of your reservation. In my case they came to pick me Keflavik airport, they were very friendly and professional with me at all times and I got exactly the car I had reserved. The Dacia was very neat and clean and had no problems during our trip around Iceland, worked perfectly. The rental price is the best you'll find in Iceland. The next time I return to Iceland, certainly I will reserve my vehicle with Rent A Wreck.

Really worth having a road trip in Iceland and you can trust in service of Rent A Wreck. Nice staffs and pleasant experience.

The car was worth what we paid for! The staff/owners are very nice. Would recommend!

Our rental experience was great. Our flight arrived a little early so we had to wait a little bit for our pick up. The driver loaded up the SUV and took us over to the Rental Office where they gave us some information on driving the SUV and getting around. After renting for two weeks, we arrived at the office where the Owner (not sure of name...) asked us about our experience and if we had an issues. We had no issues at all. He was very polite and genuine. He then drove us over to the airport and helped unload the vehicle for us. They have been in business in Keflavik for a little over a year and a half and I hope they do well. We rented a SUV (Suzuki) and it came with GPS (very helpful). I would recommend Rent-A-Wreck to anyone going to Iceland.

Very good! We enjoyed it a lot! We were waiting for awhile until a representative showed up though. Also the GPS is super old, outdated and set in Italian. Wife and I had to waste some time to figure that out. I suggest get a portable wifi so you can put it on Google Maps your destinations so we aren't lost!

Pick Up is very confusing and staff at the airport had to advise us to call them for a pick up. That took an hour ("15 minutes"). We had dinner reservations, I started to panic. The car was alright, still dirty from prev. hirers and found a beer can under the seat, wipers didn't work well so whenever we were in a snow storm it got scary and it had a huge window crack. Even though advertised online when booking the car comes with a free GPS it didn't! We were told it was a summer deal and the website wasn't updated. To hear that after a long chaotic waiting session at the airport I got angry. We had to pay for a GPS at the office to then discover there was one already in the glove box! We fuelled up before return and didn't hear about any issues.

I arrived at the airport and there was no one to pick me up, even though I had provided my flight information. I checked the emails sent by Rent-a-Wreck and they provided a number I should call to "let them know when I was ready to be picked up". I tried calling several times and in different ways. No success. I sent an email. No success. After 40min, I decided to take a cab and finally arrived at the location. The service there was good, I cannot complain. When I got the car, I was informed the fuel gauge was broken and I should keep track of my gas by the kilometer range. First attempt to use the water to clean the windshield and we learned that there was no water in the container and since all the gas stations in Iceland were self service, we could not find a way to actually fill it up. The lights for "check the engine" were on the entire trip, even though nothing happened. The back light on the passenger's side was not working and the window on the driver's side was not working either. Any attempt to take a picture from the car turned into a nightmare. The drop off was uneventful. We arrived just when they were leaving to take other customers to the airport, so we did not need to wait. Over all, price and service wise, they are OK but it would be nicer to have some improved fleet offered, especially when we need to rely on the car to move within the country.

The pick up and drop off process was seamless. The staff provided us with many vital information for driving and staying safe in Iceland. However, during the drive, there was a creaking sound and it became louder as we drove. Being concerned, we enquired about this issue, but the staff assured us that he knows more about the car than us and say everything is ok when we keep to the speed limit. We did so, but the sound became louder and the car was vibrating badly. We called the staff again and he told us to find the mechanic which we did, but it was closed and we wasted more than an hour trying to get our car checked, which to no avail. We conversed with the staff 3 times in total and he did not give a good attitude for all three times, while blaming us for the sound and not giving any concrete advice and solution. Although we managed to fix the issue eventually after spending an hour of investigation, the process of conversing with the staff was very unpleasant.

Things were resolved with a discount and upgraded vehicle, but honestly there were multiple inconveniences that hampered our trip: 1) multiple confirmation emails stated Rent-A-Wreck would meet us at the airport at 5am after our flight landed, but they did not; we instead had to wait for another group's Rent-A-Wreck representative to show up and get him to check. 2) He couldn't find our reservation in their database, but using our confirmation emails did get us a rental but we had to wait until 8:45am in the airport for him to get one from another agency since they had "overbooked." 3) They wanted to not give us the discount since they wrongly wanted to put the blame on us, saying our booking was for 9am - until I showed him the confirmation email again clearly showing 5am - so they still seemed to have no idea of our reservation. 4) We returned to the agency office with the car the day our flight was leaving so they could drive us to the airport, as they instructed, but the offices were locked wth nobody inside. We had to walk a block to find another open business so we could call their office number. They were "in a garage and would be 10 minutes." I'm not sure if all of this reflects on Rent-A-Wreck's or Guide To Iceland's go-between service, but clearly we fell through the cracks somehow. As I said, things were resolved, we got to our flights on time and we did get a half-day discount for the time we were forced to waste in the airport, but that still doesn't really make up for the time lost we could have been exploring Iceland.

Pick up (Hunday) not in time (in compensation 4000 Krn of gas oïl), but it was not really kindly... Very old car (hand brake too light, brake pad on the front of the car HS last day) We had to block a rear window with some cardboard. used winsceen wiper (not enjoy in Iceland...) Automatic and mechanical locking of the door of the driver HS. Fortunately Nothing else, drop off was easy on the hotel parking (but i am waiting for the following...) I confirm that the process of conversing with the staff was very unpleasant.

Our initial experience was terrible. Our flight arrived a few minutes early at the airport. No one met us as expected. After waiting 25 minutes, we called and was told we would be picked up in 20 minutes. 40 minutes later our driver arrived. He was picking up a second couple but could not fit 4 people and luggage, so we waited another 15 minutes for him to return. After arriving at the off-site location we were told that only 1 SUV was available and both couples booked the SUV. We waited an hour for the issue to get resolved with the other couple (they had to haggle price for a front wheel drive car). When we got our vehicle, it had defective back-up light, a low tire, 1/8th talk of gas, and no wiper fluid. We were not given any details about the vehicle other than being warned it was diesel. It took over 2 hours to get our vehicle from the time we arrived. The vehicle performed fine, except for the slowly leaking tire, which we filled along our journey. The car return process was difficult because there are no signs directing folks to the off-site location. Fortunately, the vehicle process was the most difficult part of the trip and the rest of the vacation was outstanding!.

Ok, I havent expected something posh. But on the other way, I also wasnt expecting car with brakes battered down to absolut shit. Yeah, studded tires meant that we only could travel at max 70 km/h (absolutly understandable and ok) but the fucking brakes could not stop us if we were making little bigger speed. No gas cannister. I payed 5€ a day and that little thing and it was missing. Yeah, I know, I should checked the car, but I was naive and didnt expected you to behave like if you were from fucking eastern europe. At no point through booking, I wasnt noticed that I have to own credit card, not only debbet one. Plus some other minor discrepancies between Guide to Iceland and Rent a Wreck. You know, I dont thing that the wrong stuff was happening on the side of Guide to Iceland. And chap with that car was nearly hour late, but stuff like that happens (traffic jam, accidents..) Weird was only that after we left that car, nobody picked it for 24 hours (maybe more, dont know), and I was bit nervous about it, so it was better to take some pictures of all crucial things like mileage, fuel tank status, where the car is parked.. And yeah, there was little bit weird thing with the way in which we should left the car (but I wount write more because of security reasons, Rent a Wreck knows). Except for brakes in bad condition - sqeaky clutch. Other aspects of the car were ok and car was clean.

The service provided by rent-a-wreck Iceland was very good but the car was not. The representative was waiting for us at the airport when we arrived and it was a short walk to the car. He explained the car to us and helped us get on our way. We had a question during our rental and the representative answered quickly and clearly. However, the car, a Suzuki Jimny 4x4, wasn't the easiest to drive as it would severely shake a lot at higher speeds (caused by the car having larger wheels fitted that were unbalanced). Also, we chose an small SUV so we could access the off-road areas, yet we felt the car was too small to cross some of the rivers. Next time I would spend a bit more and get a larger and better SUV/4WD that is easier to drive.

This was the worst car rental experience I have ever had! When we arrived we waited almost an hour before a representative from the company showed up at the airport. I repeatedly asked him about how to return the car and he told me that I should return the car to the office and then I would be given a ride to the airport. I specifically asked about returning the car at 8:00 AM and was assured that someone be would in the office. When we arrived at 8:00 there was no one there. We waited until 8:30 and began to panic about not having enough tie to catch our flight. My son dropped me and our luggage off at the airport, changed into running clothes, and drove back to the office. He parked the car in front of the office and put the key in the mail box, because there was still no one in the office. He ran back to the airport from the rental office. This is the last time I will rent from Rent A Wreck.

The experience was good except that I had to wait 20minutes at the airport because the guy was not there in time, and that he didn't advise me.

It was a really great experience! It is easy to contact them by email and they will do their best to help you and make your trip safe. We rented a Hyundai I10 2012-2013 at a great price, which included all insurances (Collision damage waiver, Theft protection and Premium Insurance Package). First, our flight was delayed and we did not find them at the arrival as expected. We contacted them by email with free wifi in the airport and they apologized to be late (our car has to be cleaned) and they arrived 10 minutes later ... with a bigger car : a Hyundai I30. The first evening, quite late, something was wrong with the battery. We contacted them again by email (it is the best way to contact them !) and, few minutes later, they answered that they will deliver us an other car at 10.30 on the morning, a bigger one (Renault Clio 2014 model). That was a nice surprise, we were happy to get a car with a big trunk. Their service is really 24/7 :) Then, we spent really great days in Iceland, and the car was very very pleasant to drive. Rent-A-Wreck team have a very good staff, helpful, and efficient. We recommend them !

We rent a small 2011 Suzuki Jimny 4x4, it was ok at overall but we miss some connectivity characteristics through AUX cables or USB, but nothing important. Very good staff, they gave us the chance to receive us at the airport and drop off the car a few hours later!..that made things very much easy for us!... great detail!. We had a little accident with the windshield. To solve it we were able to negotiate with the car provider, he was very understanding and we reach a fair settlement. Is important to ask for all the details and how to act in case of accident, specially in lonely roads like Iceland. Overall very good staff, great prices! I recommend!.

We rent a Suzuki Gran Vitara for 10 days. Very good state and perfectly cleaned. They waiting for us at the airport and come to Reykjavik for the drop-off. I recommend !

It was a good experience. We had a suzuki jmny 4x4 for 14 days. On the arrival they were waiting for us. It was a bit of a scare when we saw that the car had 130.000 km. Certainly when I read that in case of car trouble ,immobilizing th car, we only had the right to bus tickets an not another car. That could ruin our vacation. But the car did very well. No trouble at all. Also on the gravel where the 4x4 was a blessing. We left the car at the airport hotel with the keys ont he front tyre like they asked. That is a bit unusual but it worked out fine.

We got the car at a great price, which included all the necessary insurances for all the dangers and treachery of Iceland roads. There was a little hiccup at the beginning of the trip: although I had e-mailed the rental company the day before we left to ensure we would be picked up from the airport, no one was there to get us. I called probably 20 times before someone picked up. Apparently we fell through the cracks due to the prior day being a holiday. The car itself was fine, a 2011 Hyundai hatchback, which was an automatic (I was a little disappointed, because I was looking forward to driving the manual we requested). It was not 4WD, but it handled gravel roads fine for the most part. One road was so bumpy that the negative battery terminal came off the battery; luckily I had a Leatherman multi-tool with me and was able to reconnect/tighten the connection. Drop-off was more or less painless...we had a little trouble identifying exactly where to drop the car off, since our pickup office was not the company we actual reserved through, but once we found it, the representative drove us to the airport in the rental car. This was nice, since we didn't have to move our luggage. The post-rental inspection was a breeze. They didn't scrutinize the car in search of the tiniest imperfections for which to tack on frivolous charges. Despite the rough start to the trip, the car was fine (and we probably put close to 2,000km on it in 5 days), and the Rent-A-Wreck team was friendly, helpful, and laid back.

Hi, We took the car directly at Kaflevik airport. Date was. The car was a Dacia Duster 4x4. Very good for usual road and easy mountain ways. Not possible to go in real Highlands. Last good point : we could let the car at the hotel without meeting enable us to save time. One bad point : the GPS we received was not so easy to use and it did not found all the destination. Finally, we recommend Rent a Wreck ! Thanks !

Excellent experience! We were picked up straight from the airport upon arrival by very friendly reps. Also, as our return flight was early, they made it very simple for us to drop the car nearby. The used Suzuki Jimmy we had was perfect: a sturdy, reliable 4x4 which took us everywhere we'd planned to go... and more! We will definitely recommend Rent-a-Wreck to our friends if they ever visit Iceland. The best value for money around!

Thanks to the staff, they waited for us at the arrival, are flexible to return the car because of the early flight. The GPS was necessary in the country !

Best rate we found! Especially for a 4x4! Picking up and returning the car was very easy and convenient. Friendly staff!

Great price for the right size and type of car that we needed. So relaxed when we picked up the Jimny. The guys explained the information we needed really clearly and went through everything to make sure we were happy. Car was clean and in good order. Would definitely go through Guide to Iceland to use RentAWreck again.

Great experience. Flight was delayed but no issue to pick up car. Very reasonable price, great car no issues at all. Thanks for great experience

Friendly Staff and good prices. I would recommend.

Excellent service, very efficient, thorough and professional. I highly recommend especially a this price.

I would have given 5 stars but the tracking was out on the car which made driving over ice a bit more interesting and only one speaker worked in the car, basic things to rectify. Service was excellent though! Collection and drop off were fool proof, I will probably use again, but maybe select a better car! (Incidentally the picture was of a Hyundai i10 and we ended up in a Dacia Logan Estate!)

it was a wonderful experience with rent a wreck, everything went smoothly, excellent service fits all your needs, also the price compare with other company is cheaper, i would recommend them.

We had a wonderful rental experience. The pickup and drop off was extremely easily. We had a question regarding our drop off and sent them an email about it. We received a response in literally 2 minutes and were reassured. Great service ! I would definitely recommend them.

Excellent service, the car was as described by pictures and by phone. The timing of pick-up and drop-off work perfectly. Reccommand it for my experience.

My experience with rent a wreck was awesome, tr service is excellent, they pick you up from te airport and drop you off all on time, with te best email communication I've ever experienced from a rental car company. Save yourself the hassle of the large name brand companies and rent from rent a wreck, you will not regret it! Great experience, thank you so much guys!!

Rent-A-Wreck is worth to recommend. Rented a Suzuki Jimny with them for a week in August and had a overall great experience. Friendly stuff and You can't beat their prices :)

This renting was the only BAD thing about our travel in Iceland. We were provided with a car that wasn't working well + it had no handbrake. When we asked to have an other car or to cancel, we were rudely answered by the staff that it wasn't possible. Finally, and after having lost almost our first afternoon in Iceland, they magically found us another car (that one working well)! So I'd say the staff is not experimented and doesn't behave like adults (especially when they start to play FIFA in the backroom, or are on Facebook while dealing with our problem!)
