Top tips for renting a car in Reykjavik

  • Looking to rent a car during your time in Reykjavik? For travelers landing at Keflavik International Airport, the rental car counters can be found in the Arrival Hall of the airport’s main terminal. If you are arriving in Reykjavik Airport on a domestic flight, you will find the Europcar rental desk on the west side of the airport and the Hertz rental desk on the east side of the airport.
  • Travelers should be aware that many of the tunnels and bridges in Iceland are one way and the right of way is given to whoever arrives first. This is particularly important because these bridges and tunnels tend to be quite narrow, and nobody wants to have to back up on a tiny bridge.
  • One of the major advantages of renting a car in Reykjavik is that it truly enables you to visit any part of the country. Many wonderful sites and natural wonders are easily accessible on a day trip from Reykjavik such as the Blue Lagoon, Seljalandsfoss Waterfall, and Kirkjufjara Beach. However, make sure to keep an eye on your fuel tank, as gas stations are sparse in Iceland.
  • Despite its relatively small size, Reykjavik still experiences the typical morning rush hour from 7:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. and evening rush hour from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. However, drivers will be happy to hear that the congestion is by no means severe, so, besides a few of the downtown streets backing up, there isn’t too much to worry about.
  • 25% of our users found rental cars in Reykjavik for C$ 53 or less
  • Book your rental car in Reykjavik at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Off-airport rental car locations in Reykjavik are around 39% more expensive than airport locations on average
  • Mini rental cars in Reykjavik are around 47% cheaper than other car types, on average

  • On average a rental car in Reykjavik costs C$ 2,055 per month (C$ 68 per day).

  • Weather and time of year are two of the main factors to take into consideration when choosing a car for your time in Reykjavik. In summer, for instance, small cars will be able to handle the roads with no issues. However, come winter, small cars can struggle with the weather, so it may be better to go with a midsize car instead.

  • The standard speed limit on urban roads in Reykjavik is 50 km/h (31 mph), while on rural gravel roads it is 80 km/h (50 mph) and 90 km/h (56 mph) on rural paved roads. In residential areas, typically, the speed limit is 30 km/h (18 mph). There are also lower advisory speed limits posted along many of the roads.

  • In part due to its isolated location, Iceland, features very high gas prices. In general, drivers will find that gas prices range from 805 ISK ($6.50) to 867 ISK ($7.00) per gallon. Also, it is important to note that gas will be purchased per liter and not per gallon.

  • Drivers will be happy to hear that parking in Reykjavik is always free after 6:00 p.m. and all day on Sundays. Aside from that, parking rates go by the area (P1 - P4), with P1 being the most expensive and P3 being the cheapest; P4 is a separate weekend only designation. The general rule of thumb is that, as you get closer to Laugavegur High Street, parking becomes more expensive. Also, there are plenty of parking garages to be found in Reykjavik.
