Insurance in Iceland
All of our rental cars come with Collision Damage Waiver (with 420.000 ISK driver liability excess). We strongly recommend more coverage which will reduce your liability. Take into consideration that Iceland is prone to extreme weather conditions which can cause damage to your hire car. Without insurance you would have to pay for this damage out of your own pocket and be left with a huge cost.
Keep in mind that if you are insured through a third party insurance provider, such as a credit card or insurance company, you will first pay Reykjavik rent a car for any damage and then get reimbursed through your insurance provider. Adding insurance package can lower your excess down to 0 ISK. (Platinum package)
