I used Reykjavik Rent a Car again from 10th to 20th July again this year. As usual, great service at Keflavic airport, sensible advice about not letting go of the car doors in windy weather, and no pressure to buy extras. The 4x4 Quashqai performed well, and we explored Snaefellsness, the Highlands (Kjolur, F35, Hveravellir) and along the South coast camping at Pak Gil (Game of Thrones!). Will definitely use this company again, and a friend already has a car booked with them for September.

We had excellent service from Reykjavik rent a car, picking us up at our hotel in Hafnarfjordur and very promptly coming to our hotel in Reykjavic a week later when we were returning the car. We appreciated their very friendly and prompt service, making the pickup and return easy and hassle-free
First time in Iceland and I read many very negative forum posts ...
First time in Iceland and I read many very negative forum posts about car rental in this country. It was strongly advised not to book any international rent a car companies like Avis, hertz, etc... As many people got charged for damages to the car after getting back to their countries and no possibility to make any claims.
So I was a bit afraid about car rental in Iceland.
I decided to follow the forums recommendation and I picked up Reykjavik rent a car because it was a local company, and it was definitely cheap.
I've rented a Suzuki Jimmy for 7 days. The car was clean, 47000kms mileage, very good condition.
The staff was very friendly and helped me sorting out an issue from my side during the booking process.
They explained me their company policy towards damages and vehicle return.
It was very clear and I have appreciated a lot that they trust customers. No car inspection at checkout!
I strongly recommend using RRC because of their very competitive prices and their customer-trust policy!
Will definitely rent again with them next time I come to Iceland
Reykjavik Rent a car is just excellent.!!!!!!!! ...
Reykjavik Rent a car is just excellent.!!!!!!!!
We have been traveling around iceland for 3 weeks. There is no better way to go around the island as with a car. We could stop everywhere, and we found absolutely magic (!!!) places. So, we have been looking for a good car company, and we couldn't have decided better. I think Reykjavik Rent a Car is the best car rental company i ever collaborate with. We had very special wishes about how our car should be and look like because of the way we wanted to travel. And they were really always very helpful and were responsive to ALL of our (sometimes crazy) wishes. Even when our tank was empty in the middle of nowhere there was someone helping us within 30 minutes.
We especially want to thank Kristjan for this outstanding service i can't describe in words!
We will come to iceland again and definitely will rent our car with Reykjavik Rent a Car.
Thanks a lot for making our trip so perfect!

I travel a great deal and rent a lot of cars...
I travel a great deal and rent a lot of cars. Reykjavik Rent a Car may be the best rental experience I have ever had. They were quick with their communication follow up, very accommodating, the owner met us the airport upon our arrival, the vehicle was in perfect condition inside and out and didn't have that weird odor that many rental cars do, and drop off was simple. Really well done.
I have used this company three times...
I have used this company three times. I have just booked for a fourth. I travel and hire cars a lot and NOWHERE in the world have a received such a good service. I emailed them yesterday with an email enquiry - this was a Sunday night and within an hour they had replied. Their cars are new, spotlessly maintained and they deliver on time and there is never any hassle. One year I had an unusual set of circumstances regarding pick-up and they worked hard to ensure everything ran smoothly. If you email you get a reply from someone who makes you feel like a valued customer.
Positive reviews are so boring...
Positive reviews are so boring :( But, I said I'd follow up my last review, so I will. Hired a big 4x4 from the company last December. No problems. Went back and hired another smaller 4x4 - a Grand Vitara for 2 weeks in July this Summer. Great car, brand new (<3000kms on clock). Drove all around the Snaefellsness Peninsular, then the Kjolur F35 (Hveravellir) and Landmannalaugar - yes, "F" roads and some smaller river crossings. Great car, great service and good price talking into account the 10+ day discounts. Good advice given on airport pick up - such as, "be careful opening car doors in high winds" - a BIG cause of damage.
I had to add a comment since we used Reykjavik Rent A Car ...
I had to add a comment since we used Reykjavik Rent A Car this june/july 2013 for two weeks. Service was excellent with the brand-new Suzuki Jimny delivered to our hotel. A GPS was thrown in, and wonders of wonders the return of the very dusty (but well treated) car was a no hassle 2 min drop off at the airport. There are less expensive car rental companies but the price, though high by continental Europe standards, was fair for this service.
Just had to comment regarding our recent experience with Reykjavik Rent a Car...
Just had to comment regarding our recent experience with Reykjavik Rent a Car - had been seriously let down by Avis literally hours before 5 people were due to land at Reykjavik airport needing a 9 seater for a 4 day photoshoot. Called Reykjavik Rent a Car at 7:00 am UK time - an hour before the people were due to touch down, to see if there was anything they could do to help. Within the hour Mr Baldvinsson had confirmed that a vehicle would be available and he met the travellers on time at the airport to hand over the vehicle!
Can't thank Mr Baldvinsson enough for his efficiency and professional approach and would certainly recommend to other travellers requiring car hire in Iceland.
We had really 4 good days ...
We had really 4 good days exploring a part of Iceland with a car from Reykjavik rent a car. The car, the Suzuki Grand Vitara, was in a perfect estate. The booking from Germany was very easy, if I had questions before coming to Iceland I got a reply within an hour and the delivery of the car to our hotel was very punctual, even on a Sunday morning.
Coming back to Iceland I will surely chose the same company again.
