Are self-drive holidays safe during COVID-19?

That said, if you’d prefer to avoid interactions with others, a self-drive holiday is ideal. You can travel at your own pace and pick and choose where you want to stop. The rental office will disinfect your self-drive vehicle before and after your rental with all high-touch surfaces carefully sanitized. These precautions will ensure your holiday is safe and memorable.
What is a self drive tour?
Self drive tours are multi-day excursions across Iceland where you follow a pre-arranged travel itinerary based on your own choices of attractions and activities. Self drive tours provide an unequalled level of autonomy as you set your own pace and embark on the holiday of your choosing, adding as many tours and activities as you see fit. One of the great benefits of a self drive tour is 24/7 contact with a personal travel advisor, ensuring a level of expertise and security throughout your journey.
