We agree, this is an outstanding company...

From Tripadvisor:

We agree, this is an outstanding company. We rented a Hyundai i30; it was clean, operated fine and got great mileage. Their service was flawless. The car was delivered to our guest house right on time, and we dropped off at the guest house as well [in fact, they made a special trip to come get it as there was no parking when we returned due to an event in Reykjavik].
As a note; we found driving in Iceland to be easy and unstressful [unlike Italy, Greece or Turkey]. Highways and roads are well marked. People generally drive courteously and obey the speed limits; the ring road is in very good shape and while we didn’t have any contact with the police they likely are very good English speakers [almost all Icelanders are]. Any time you get off the ring road [to go to an attraction or accommodation for example] expect a 1 lane gravel surface. There is the occasional wash boarding and pot holes to be avoided, but otherwise, if you go slowly they are fine, albeit quite dusty [if you are lucky to have dry sunny weather]. We drove from Reykjavik to Hofn and gas was easy to get with a credit card, although we didn’t figure out how to get a receipt. The gas stations also had free water [with a brush] for washing off the dust.
