What are the benefits of renting a car in Akureyri?

Renting a car in Akureyri is the best option for those planning to taking a domestic flight to Akureyri. Renting a car is the best way to explore the wonderful sights of North Iceland.

You can either pick up the vehicle at the rental agency’s office or request a pick-up service at a specific address in Akureyri.

Can I rent a car in Akureyri and drop it off in another location, such as Reykjavik?

What sort of car should I rent for travelling in Iceland?

When deciding upon what sort of car you should rent for your travels in Iceland, there are mainly two factors that you should consider. The first is the group you will be travelling with. How many are in it and how much luggage will they have? You will have to take into account that when choosing a car, it does not only need to have enough seats, but also the luggage space for whatever your companions and yourself will take with you. If you are planning to use your car as accommodation, a camping van is recommended.Secondly, you should pay attention to the season. If you are travelling in Iceland in the period between October and April, it’s highly recommended that you rent a 4x4 vehicle, an SUV or a jeep, in case of ice and snow, as those cars are higher than the regular vehicles, making it easier for them to pass over snow. In summer, if you are planning to travel around the country, due to ever-changing road conditions, a jeep or an SUV is also recommended. In summer, if your itinerary will take out off the beaten track, or outside the south coast area, an SUV is also recommended, but not as vital as in winter.
