Frequently asked questions

Why should I rent a 4WD in Iceland?

If you wish to visit the Highlands in summer, you will need a four-wheel-drive vehicle. In winter, a 4WD is a safer option than a 2WD due to the ever-changing nature of Icelandic weather, such as snowstorms or slippery roads.

What sort of cars are considered 4x4 or SUV’s?

This category covers larger vehicle models such as Toyota Rav4 and Suzuki Vitara and thus is better suited for more passengers. While some options within this category are 2WD vehicles, others come with 4WD. All vehicles are elevated, making them a suitable fit for traveling on snow or gravel.

Is this car suitable for driving around Iceland in all seasons?

Yes, whether you're traveling in the warm summer months or in the cold of winter, vehicles within this category are suitable.

Do 4x4 vehicles in Iceland have tire chains?

No, it is illegal for vehicles to have tire chains in Iceland. However, after November 1st, all rental vehicles in Iceland are provided with studded winter tires.

Can I go into the highlands with this type of car?

Some vehicles found within this category are suitable for traveling in the Highlands while others or not. Each listed vehicle is marked specifically to show whether it can travel into the highlands or not. Understand that taking an unsuitable vehicle into the highlands will likely void any purchased insurance and make you liable to pay for a damaged undercarriage or suspension.

Do I need a 4WD in winter?

While not mandatory, we highly recommend renting a 4WD, if you are travelling in Iceland between October and March, even if you stay on main roads, as it is a safer option than a smaller and lighter 2WD that has lesser capabilities.

Can I pick up my 4x4 vehicle at the airport in Iceland?

Yes, there are many rental providers located at both Keflavik airport and Reykjavik airport where you can pick up your four-wheel-drive vehicle.

Are 4x4 vehicles suitable for a self-drive tour in Iceland?

Yes, it's a great way to have a 4x4 adventure in Iceland's countryside on a self-drive tour, whether in summer or in winter. That way, your accommodation will have been previously booked for you as well as activities in different regions of the country. That way, all you have to worry about is driving from place to place in your four-wheel-drive vehicle.

Can 4x4 vehicles drive on Iceland's F roads?

Yes, the only way to drive on Iceland's F roads (the F stand for "Fjall", the Icelandic word for mountain) is on a 4WD or AWD vehicle. These roads can be found in Iceland's remote highlands and are closed off during winter.

What are the most popular 4WD vehicles and SUVs to rent in Iceland?

Dacia Duster and Suzuki Jimny are our most popular smaller-sized 4x4 vehicles. For medium-sized 4x4 vehicles, the Toyota Rav4 and Kia Sportage are the most popular. When it comes to SUVs, the Toyota Land Cruiser is the most popular among our customers. All the above-mentioned vehicles handle well on snow and can drive on Iceland's gravel roads.

What is included in my 4x4 rental in Iceland?

Each independent rental has a different setup as to what is included, so please read the description carefully and go over the ‘included’ section before finalizing the booking. It is quite common that either additional insurance or GPS devices are included in the rental.

All cars come with unlimited mileage and CDW insurance, as is law in Iceland. The CDW insurance covers damages that the renter might cause to other vehicles and items, as well as covering compensation for individuals that might be harmed. It does not cover damages made to the rental vehicle.
