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 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 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.
After good experiences with service and support...
After good experiences with service and support, during our first Iceland trip in 2010, we rented this year again a 4-wheel drive car from Reykjavik Rent a Car for our Iceland round trip via route 1 from 6 till 20 April. We got an excellent car which was delivered and picked up from our hotel. Reykjavik Rent a Car was again a great contribution to our excellent holiday on Iceland. Highly recommended.
I've used Reykjavik Rent a Car twice...
I've used Reykjavik Rent a Car twice already and will be doing so again this year. Highly recommended.
This car rental company is OUTSTANDING...
This car rental company is OUTSTANDING. They reply to emails within hours, answer the phone and go that extra mile to give a personal service when your requirements are a little beyond the norm. AND they are very, very good value.
I usually hate dealing with car rental companies - these are the good guys in the business. No hidden extras and a nice person who answers your call and knows your name.
I used them as well ...
I used them as well and they get my highest recommendation.
