Top tips for hiring a car in Keflavik

  • When coming to the remote town of Keflavik, renting a car is definitely a must; Iceland is a popular destination for road trips and public transport is not well-established in this secluded corner of the world. Get the most out of your island experience and hire your own four wheels upon arrival at Keflavik to explore the stunningly untouched landscape of Iceland. You can also visit Reykjavik, which is about 50 minutes away, and probably even catch a glimpse of the Northern Lights.
  • When landing at Keflavik International Airport, head to the car hire service desks in the arrivals hall and choose from companies like Avis or Hertz, among some others. With a car, the ride to central Reykjanesbaer (which is the municipality made up of Keflavik, Njarovik, and Hafnir) will only take 5 minutes, whereas public transport or walking will take half an hour.
  • Traffic jams are unlikely to be encountered during a trip to Iceland, even though most Icelandic people own a car, as there is little to no public transport available. One of the worst mistakes to commit in Iceland when driving a car is leaving the road and driving into a field or any strip of nature. Fines can be exorbitantly high, as the Icelandic people are very fierce when it comes to protecting the nature of their island, so always stick to the roads that stretch across the entire island and make exploring it an easy and enjoyable undertaking.
  • Iceland is particularly famous for the Northern Lights, but, when driving through the countryside or Keflavik, don’t get distracted by this extraordinary nature spectacle. Many accidents in Iceland happen because tourists stop their car in the middle of the road to take pictures of the scenic pastures or Northern Lights. Especially as long strips of roads are not well-lit, this is a dangerous undertaking that should be avoided. Find a proper parking spot, park the car, and enjoy the phenomenon safely.

What type of car is recommended for driving in Keflavik?

Travelers who want to explore the more rural parts of the country during their trip to Keflavik should definitely opt for a car with 4-wheel drive, like an SUV or mini truck. If driving mainly in the town or also venturing into Reykjavik, a smaller city car is also sufficient, as it is also cheaper and needs less gas.

What's the speed limit in Keflavik?

All speed limit signs in Iceland are given in km/h. Generally, 50 km/h (31 mph) is permitted in urban areas, 80 km/h (49 mph) on dirt roads, and up to 90 km/h (55 mph) on paved country roads. Even though hardly any road has a speed limit of more than 90 km/h, it is allowed to drive up to 100 km/h (62 mph) if deemed safe. However, the open landscape and empty roads can tempt many to race, which can lead to fines.

The average price in Keflavik for petrol lies at 228.6 Icelandic Kronas per liter, which is $1.85 per ¼ gallon ($7.40 per gallon). Petrolprices in Iceland are basically the same at all petrol stations and there is not much fluctuation during the day.

Where are the best places to park in Keflavik?

Parking is free almost everywhere in Iceland unless there is a meter. Some parking spots in Keflavik have time restrictions, so always check signs in the vicinity to make sure there won’t be a ticket on the windshield when you get back. Many guesthouses and hotels also have parking spots, so check in advance to see if that also applies to your hotel.
