KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Isafjordur

  • Driving car rentals in Isafjordur is a wonderful way to see this breathtaking city surrounded by natural splendor in the Westfjords region of northwestern coastal Iceland. Without relying on public buses or taxis for transportation, Isafjordur car rentals can get you around town, to local adventure tours, campgrounds, hiking sites, and the Westjords Heritage Museum. In car rentals in Isafjordur, you can drive all over the northwestern peninsula and even drive south to Reykjavik.
  • Located on the southeast coast of this port city, the Isafjordur Airport (IFJ) makes an ideal location for securing car rentals in Isafjordur. When you arrive at IFJ, you can find three car rental counters near the baggage claim carousels. Once you have shown all necessary documentation, signed all paperwork, and gotten your keys, you can find your rental vehicle parked outside the terminal in the airport parking lot. This is also where you will return your rental vehicle.
  • In Isafjordur and throughout Iceland, you will be driving on the right side of the road. While roads in Isafjordur are grid-like and well maintained, once you drive beyond the populated and built-up areas, roads tend to be narrow with twists and turns. You are permitted to pass cars in Iceland, as long as you do so on the left, and you are not permitted to make a right turn at a red light. The drunk driving blood alcohol limit in Iceland is .05%, which is much lower than it is in America. You will face harsh penalties if you are stopped and found to have a blood alcohol level above 0.049.
  • One challenge those driving car rentals in Isafjordur will face is severe glare, not only reflecting off snow, but reflecting off the water. And since Isafjordur surrounds a bay, there will almost always be water in your line of sight when you are driving in town. Winter in Isafjordur starts in October and lasts through April, when you can expect to be driving in snow and ice. Make sure you take time to clean your car of all ice, snow, and frost before you drive it. Stick to plowed roads when you can. If you skid on ice, steer into the skid in order to get regain control of your vehicle. As you drive, beware of wildlife crossing the road. If you see wildlife waiting to cross, stop and allow it to cross, and wait to see if there are any younger or other animals who also need to cross.
  • Book your rental car in Isafjordur at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
