Frequently asked questions

What sort of cars are Small & Cheap Cars in Iceland?

Small and cheap cars are categorised by their size and price, as well as whether or not they are three years or older. Vehicles within this category are generally priced lower than models that are either larger or newer. Within this section, you can find cars such as Toyota Aygo, Citroen C1, Volkswagen Golf and Toyota Yaris. Smaller and cheaper cars come without 4WD or AWD. 

Are these cars suitable for all seasons in Iceland?

These vehicles are best suited to driving around Reykjavik and the paved road between Iceland’s towns but may be unsuitable for rural driving in poor weather. Because of this, these cars are not recommended for traveling around Iceland in the winter. They are perfectly sufficient for all asphalt travel in the summer, however.

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

Unfortunately, no. The cars found within this category are unsuitable for travelling on gravel paths, dirt tracks or F-roads. Travellers should be aware that driving one of these vehicles on unsuitable roads will void any insurance and make you liable to pay for any potential damage to the suspension or undercarriage. If you are planning on travelling to the Highlands, make sure to rent a 4WD. 

What is included in the rental?

This depends on what vehicle rental is chosen, requiring travellers to pay special attention to the ‘included’ section on the booking documents. For instance, some deals come with GPS devices or additional insurance. Thankfully, all rentals in Iceland come with both CDW insurance and unlimited mileage. CDW covers damage and injury caused by the vehicle (ie. in the case of traffic accidents) but does not cover damage made to the vehicle itself. 

What are the most popular small and cheap cars to rent in Iceland?

The Hyundai i10, Toyota Aygo, Toyota Yaris and Volkswagen Polo are the most popular small cars among our customers.
