2.4 Mediocre12 Aug 2019
Cons: Of the 25 cars I’ve rented so far this year, this was by far the worst vehicle. It had no A/C, the wind leaked through the windows, it was filthy, and was completely stripped down option with 110k kilometers. The sales staff was beyond pushy with the insurance, practically threatening me. Awful
5.2 Okay8 Jul 2019
Cons: we waited in line for 90 minutes. it was hot. the check in process was very inefficient.
6.0 Good23 May 2019
Pros: Drop off super, super easy. Pick up staff took a time consuming, impolite, hard drive attempt to up sell every single customer. I spent 40 minutes in a line of five people with every cashier counter filled.Cons: More efficient pick up system.
9.2 Excellent21 May 2019
Pros: Decent car even though I chose the cheapest one. Really good value for money.Cons: The queue and waiting time to pick up the car was very long. A good sign that it’s popular, but they need more people at work so it goes faster.
10.0 Excellent16 May 2019
Cons: Nothing overall very good
10.0 Excellent11 May 2019
Pros: Easy pick up process, in airport counter and pick up and great rates
4.4 Okay4 Apr 2019
Pros: The staff was fine and pleasant, that wasn’t an issue. The car also drove well and handled Iceland’s roads very well.Cons: At check in I spent about an hour in line. It was ridiculous, way too long, and apparently all too common at this location. I wa furious and could have gone to another rental area off the airport site faster and cheaper. I only selected this one because it was in the airport and it was a huge mistaK
3.6 Mediocre13 Mar 2019
Pros: The heated seatsCons: The price for rental was 4x more than what i was quoted. The car was dirty and the alignment of car was very off.
2.0 Mediocre11 Mar 2019
Pros: I have withdrawn unknown deposit which is much more than the agreed value. Please clarify the problem.
9.6 Excellent5 Mar 2019
Pros: Car was older but nicely equipped. Staff was very nice and accommodating.Cons: Line to rent a car was really long.

Good overall with some minor nitpicksPros: Overall value and experience was satisfactory. Drop off staff friendly and helpful.Cons: Wait time at pick up, registration staff was not friendly, hard to find drop off location.
5.2 Okay5 Jan 2018
Cons: I asked for Jeep and I got a Duster. It meand I looked for more reliable car. No spare wheel was in car. For winter and snow/frost - wind screen is not heated enough.
5.6 Okay7 Nov 2017
Pros: loved the car. The duster was awesome.Cons: The service was horrible at pickup. The gentleman was extremely rude and tried to scam us. Fortunately at drop off, we had a different gentleman who was nicer. They didn't mention the discount chips we could have used at certain gas stations, and again, weren't helpful.
8.0 Excellent26 Oct 2017
I booked a jeep but different 4x4 was givenPros: fuel economyCons: the agent did not let us know that no spare tyre inside the car, hence there is something that we can do to inflate but was not told about it, luckily we did not get a flat tyre

Pros: All was okayCons: everything was okay

8.4 Excellent13 Sep 2017
DecentPros: Relatively quick pickup and paper work process. Vehicle was as advertised. Clean and ready to go. Friendly and helpful staff at the pickup location.Cons: No clear direction at Keflavic arrivals, or clear signage on the shuttle bus to the pickup location.
3.2 Mediocre9 Sep 2017
Insurance SCAMPros: Car was clean and new.Cons: ACE Car Rental is a complete scam run by bad people. This was our first time renting a car ourselves (we just turned 25 years old). When they showed us the car it was night and they had washed it down IMMEDIATELY before showing us. The car looked new, and they said it was relatively new but it was difficult to see any marks. We were in a hurry so I took one photo of a small dent and we signed off on the car. We drove it on roads only for less than TWO days before bringing it back. The guy (from Greece, I didn't get his name) "found" a scratch on the side that looked like from a key or knife, and small dents on the hood (easily masked by water droplets at night). We bought their 2nd level of insurance and still had to pay $500 to them. After I disputed it he went on to tell me how ACE has a partnership with a garage where they take their cars. The "garage" is also owned by ACE. They set arbitrarily high repair prices and scam tourists. This was the cheapest rental place we could find and a huge mistake. Furthermore, I accidentally left my passport and cash in the center console with 100% certainty. The same guy from Greece claims he was the only one in the car since I dropped it off and denies having seen anything. I searched my photos for evidence of when I had it on my person and called the few places we had been that day to check. We can say with 100% certainty that he stole it from the car. We missed our flights and had to spend more money we couldn't afford to get a new passport, flights, hotel, and expensive Icelandic food. I'm so inspired by this series of events that I will post this everywhere I can leave a review. Good luck out there people!

Watch out for high charges for minor damage.Pros: Nice clean car. Reasonable charge but others were charged rediculius amounts for minor damage.

8.4 Excellent30 May 2019
Pros: We liked that they gave us a hybrid car and we were able to save on fuel costs.Cons: Staff at pick-up was not particularly friendly or helpful.
9.2 Excellent20 Sep 2018
Hassle free rentalPros: The interaction I had with Europacar staff both at pick-up and return was first rate. Both were pleasant, professional without any intent to hassle or nitpick. Or that I felt pressured to add something I did not want to add. The car was new, clean, comfortable in excellent working order. I highly commend Europacar for their excellent, professional and I might add nice staff with excellent English speaking skills.Cons: The cost which was not excessive by Icelandic standards but far more expensive than my home country. This of course is not a criticism of Europacar but a function of the reality of car rental/hire in Iceland. The cost to return the car at the Eastern end of Iceland doubled the cost.
9.6 Excellent2 Sep 2018
Iceland camper van (a thing of the past?)Pros: Relatively new van, ran great, and the custom shelving was quite handy, especially the pull out cutting board table. Plenty of room for 2. Friendly crew.Cons: It was a panel van so with the custom shelving there is zero visibility of whats behind you or in your side blind spots. Outside of the city you can get by but be prepared to have your passenger on the lookout for you. With the new law / rule you need to park at camping sites and pay the fee, so seems to defeat the point of the camper van.
10.0 Excellent24 Aug 2018
Perfect car, perfect service.Pros: Far better service than the Budget office next door (at Reykjavik/KEF), which is what we used last time. Fast, friendly, helpful, and no-nonsense. The car was in great condition, and met our needs perfectly.
10.0 Excellent14 Aug 2018
Pros: First vehicle I was given had a flat tire light on - but it was immediately replaced with a nicer vehicle when I pointed it out. Vehicle rental overall was great. On returning, there had been some minor issues (chips due to gravel roads) that I reported and this was handled very smoothly and professionally by the team.Cons: Since this rental was in Iceland I would have loved the option to get a larger 4x4 vehicle. However, this was not available for 7 passengers! Overall, very good though.
7.6 Good21 Jun 2017
Pros: The staff were very friendly and professional.Cons: I had expected a slightly higher quality car. The various categories/tiers made it difficult to honestly assess value. For example, we selected a "VW Golf or similar" and ended up with a Kia. I do not consider the Kia similar given we did not select the economy category.

Pros: Pickup & drop-off was smooth despite of rush. Fresh coffee and the espresso machine at drop off made us feel so good after a long day of driving in snow.
2.0 Mediocre24 Oct 2018
It was closedCons: The website said open 24 hours. I got to airport desk at 2:00 AM and it was closed. There was a sign with a phone number...I called and it said the number was not in service. I found another international phone number online...that also was not in service. There was no one at the airport information desk. I was only in Iceland for the day and that is why I needed to pick up the car as soon as I landed. So the car was useless to me and I never picked it up. I need a refund
5.2 Okay18 Oct 2018
ExtortionPros: Great carCons: Misplaced key resulted in fee that exceeded entire cost of five day rental. Payment forced under duress!
7.6 Good15 Sep 2018
The Toyota Yaris that could!Pros: The check in and check out process was fairly quick and simple. We got a small Toyota Yaris that took us all over Iceland, including the Westfjords and up mountains!Cons: Our Garmin GPS device was very out of date and in a few cases didn't even register the roads we needed on its map. It led us after several times which was frustrating.

8.4 Excellent18 Aug 2018
Pros: Very easy straightforward process to pick up the car at the airport. The extra insurances were presented well and no pressuring to take them. We did opt for the windshield protection. Also the shuttle to the airport after drop off was fast.Cons: The drop off was a bit confusing. It was presented on the paperwork we received but might have been better to have a verbal explanation presented when we picked up the car too. They were quite busy when we were dropping off so there was no one in the office and no sign indicating the process so several people were just standing around waiting.
8.4 Excellent25 Jul 2018
Pros: Appreciated the key fob that provided discounts to Olis gas stations.Cons: Staff is not very friendly.
8.8 Excellent14 Sep 2017
Pros: Overall we had a great experience with the car it was exactly what we wanted! The car was very clean and in good working order.Cons: The check in process was very slow and the check out process was chaotic. I had to go inside to find someone to check in our car and there were so many cars returned there was no where to park.

5.6 Okay30 Jun 2018
Gave us a car with a known mechanical issuePros: Staff were friendly. Pick up and drop off went quickly- sometimes too quickly.Cons: We had reserved a Jeep Wrangler, and they first gave us a Dacia Duster. Which is not even close. It was older and very dirty inside, and had many scratches and dings on the outside. We drove it less than five miles, and noticed an awful sound when we turned tightly. We looked and determined that the interior of the wheel well was loose and the wheel was rubbing it when we turned. When we took it back, they said ‘oh yeah, the Duster makes a weird noise when you turn, but it’s not serious’. We refused that car, and we’re goven a substitute (again, nowhere close to similar to a Jeep Wrangler), but cleaner. This time though, it was pouring rain and they had a long line, and when the guy brought us the second car he almost ran over our son because he was backing up so quickly and then just handed us the keys and ran off without a walk around. We walked around the car in the rain and wind and took photos with our phone of all the dings and scratches, and left. Predictably, when we returned the car, the woman at the desk asked about some of the dings (which were rusted, and obviously didn’t happen in two days!) and we had to show her the time stamped pictures to prove that we hadn’t made them despite the guy not taking time to make notes. Frustrating, but she was pleasant and we knew she was just doing her job.
6.0 Good11 Mar 2018
A “Tahoe” is not a “Tahoe”Pros: GPS, awesome safety features, great gas mileageCons: A full size SUV in Iceland is somewhere between a midsize suv and a full size suv. We could not fit in the Nissan that they gave me as an equivalent to a Tahoe. There are not American size cars in Iceland. I had to pay an extra $100/day for a shuttle van that could fit 6 people and our 6 suitcases. The Nissan worked great before we had to add our luggage.
5.2 Okay14 Apr 2017
Nice car- it wasn't the one I orderedPros: Staff was very friendly.Cons: The $260 for one day bill. I originally reserved a VW Golf- bait & switch. When I dropped off my car- it took 30 min's for the shuttle to get back to the airport for a 5 min walk.

This car made me want to take it back home with mePros: We got a Renault hatchback for our Iceland trip. The roads were treacherous at times but this car had so many sensors and fun tech that I wanted to take it home with me. Great car! Great gas mileage!Cons: Gps is something you need in Iceland for sure. So I brought my Garmin nuvi with me(cell phone gps works just as well). The woman at the counter told me that for an extra charge I could get gps in the car. I told her no. When I went to check, gps was built into the car. That just seems like they're trying to get more money from you. That didn't sit too well with me and my wife.

8.8 Excellent26 Nov 2019
Pros: Very easy process, staff was attentive and welcoming. Car was nice, no issues.Cons: My only complaint was that I feel I was upsold how 'Iceland is different from other countries so the insurance is more worthwhile here.' I came in November and other then some rain and higher winds, I really didn't think the weather was all that special. I didn't encounter any gravel roads going to the main sites along the southern coast and their certainly wasn't need for the wind and ash insurance. Now certainly these things happen, of course, and it's good to be aware, but I felt like the way everyone was talking about the weather I would be stupid not to take it, yet the changes were really not that different from my home country. So maybe I would amend the shtick on insurance to 'useful if you only drive in sunny weather' or something similar.
10.0 Excellent2 Feb 2019
Pros: The staff was very friendly and got us into our car very fast. No issues with extra fees or aggressive upsells.Cons: The airport bus that was supposed to come every 10 minutes was very late when we dropped off our car, probably 25 minutes late.
7.2 Good8 Jul 2018
New good cars and SUVsPros: The cars were new and clean. The RAV4 we got had only 4,000 KMs. Well optioned with a free GPS that really didn't find any locations. For $15 per day you can rent a wifi adapter we didn't get it as my cell had internationals calling and data. Check in was pretty quick.Cons: The check in to get your car was painfully long. After waiting a long time for the rental car shuttle to load up with folks ~ 20 minutes we were off to the rental car drop offs. Once we arrived there we waited around another 40 minutes to get our RAV4. The car GPS couldn't find sites to see by name. I plugged them into my Google Maps and it had no issue finished where we needed to go.
5.2 Okay22 May 2018

Good staff, small bootPros: Pick up and drop off was well done - staff professional.Cons: We didn't know that we had to take a bus to the pick up point and we wasted a lot of time finding this out. This should have been written on our voucher. The car was smaller than expected. There is NO WAY to fit 4 normal sizes suitcases in the boot as the description states. We had to stack 3 up in the back and put one in the back seat between passengers. This was uncomfortable and unsafe. There was no view out the back window. I think it should be made clear that it will take 2 suitcases and another couple small bags.

Pros: Friendly staff, easy pick up and drop off.Cons: Get comprehensive car insurance before you go. Given the high winds and loose gravel on the roads its common to get chips and scratches. The insurance they sell you when you pick up the car is very expensive, which is how they offer relatively cheap hire fees.

Watch out for the insurance upsellPros: car was okCons: High pressure insurance upsell. Make sure you arrange extra insurance coverage with online booking company. Cars and repairs are extremely expensive in Iceland, this Avis is will get you for the smallest scratch and change you the most they can - according to the pushy counter clerk.
6.4 Good4 Oct 2017
The pick up process was extremely slowCons: The line to pick up the car was long and moved very slow. It took us about an hour and 20 minutes to get through it. The person helping us tried hard to sell us on the extra insurance coverage by trying to scare us into buying it even though I already had purchased protection from a third party. The entire check in/ pick up process was very frustrating. After that, the car was fine and the drop off process was flawless.
6.8 Good30 Sep 2017
Bad airport for rentingCons: Terrible pickup and return experience.
7.6 Good5 Aug 2017
Very expensive for the size of carCons: I reserved a Volkswagen and got an under powered Hyundai!
8.8 Excellent18 Jul 2017
Good Price in IcelandPros: The price was lower than competition in Iceland. The car was in good shape. The price quoted was the price paid, no extras. You can walk from the airport counter to the parking lot to get your car (in Iceland).Cons: The line at the counter was too long and we waited, and waited and waited. The car we thought we were renting was not available.

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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.
