INFORMATION REGARDING RENTING A CAR
Car rental counters can be found in the arrival hall after you have passed customs.

• You must have a valid credit card to rent a car.
• Our prices include a deductible (CDW).
• We recommend that you take out extra insurance (SCDW) which lowers the deductible further. Additional insurances are optional and can be paid directly to the rental car company.
• An airport of approximately 5400 ISK applies when picking up your car and is paid locally.
• When you pick up the car, you need a credit card as a guarantee. The car rental firm will reserve a deposit from your card. The amount varies depending on the car type and rental days and will be refunded when the car is returned.
• Carefully inspect the car and note any damage.
• The rental car is booked in 24-hour periods. If the 24-hour limit is exceeded, an extra day rent is automatically added, so be sure to submit the car on time. If you drop off the car at a place other than where you picked it up, there may be a charge.
• Always return the rental car with a full tank of gas to avoid extra charges.
• The car rental company will check the car when you return it.
• If you are traveling with children and need to rent a car seat this needs to be pre-booked and then paid on location.
• Please note that an additional parking fee may be applied at certain hotels.

Motorhome pick-up
Our motorhome station is about 10 minutes outside of the airport area, but we have a shuttle that drives customers between the airport and the station. Go to the Europcar desk first. We close at 18:00 at the motorhome station so all campers/motorhomes need to be picked up between 8 AM and 6 PM. Please note that there is an extra fee for late pick-up.

Driving in Iceland
Driving in Iceland is not difficult but entails a certain challenge. The Icelandic authorities have summarized a driving guide which we recommend you read if you are renting a car during your trip. It can be found here: https://www.road.is/travel-info/driving-safely-in-iceland/
