Reviews for Blue Car Rental
I will be direct to the point: the experience was below terrible. I think 3 cars in 10 days is really not a good ratio, to be honest. The first Dacia, the screws of the wheel got loose while driving - not 1 but 3 of them - and the other was completely lose and about to pop. Imagine if this wheel pops out, hit another vehicle at 90km/h while I lose control of my car? Doesn't look good right? Bonus: the car had NO TOOLS (no car jack, no screw key, no TRIANGLE!) Second Dacia: everything seems normal. We are driving, the car dies mysteriously. So what was wrong with this one? Well, apparently the sensor to measure the diesel level is somehow broken, and it tells us that we still have diesel when we don't. The car died on the highway, in a foggy day, again no triangle, and we could only hope that nobody would hit it. Bonus: we had a snowmobile tour scheduled for just before the car broke but all plans for that day had to be canceled...
Dacia duster was not available at the moment, and they gave me a toyota rav4, i dont know if is similar or suoerior to my booked car. rav 4 was automatic gear but green fuel, not diesel, so consuming more than my manual gear ordered car. duentu the fact I booked the car in Reykjavik no delivery service was available...but all was in order.

The car was really great for our journey around Iceland.
The price is affordable and competitive regarding the quality of the car.
The service was excellent and I recommend to rent car with Northbound!
I was a bit worried about using Blue Car rental for our two week Iceland adventure, but it turned out to be a good decision. I'd originally booked with one of the big hire companies, but was tempted to switch to Blue when I saw their price was over £300 cheaper for the same car. Separately, I took out excess cover with an insurance company, just to be safe (around £40 for annual cover - why haven't I done this before?!!). When I picked up the car we were upgraded from a Dacia Duster to a Nissan Quashqai. There was no hard sell on extra cover when I told them I had my own, and the process was very quick. Our bags barely fit in the car (3 young kids means a lot of stuff) but a guy came out and helped - he suggested taking out the two base boards in the boot, which meant we could just about fit everything in, and we were away. After two weeks we returned the car. I was told to leave the keys on a desk and I would receive a condition report on the car...

We booked the car after office hours because we waited for our covid results. The next morning we arrived at 8o'clock at Blue to pick our car up.
Apparently, the booking hadn't came through. They asked us to wait until 9am until the KEF office opened to check their mails.
We waited and by 9am there was a solution: they hadn't had time to bring over an Aygo from KEF to Reykjavik so instead Blue gave us a Duster :) Which was a super solution for us.
But this is maybe a lesson to give a notice that, when booking last minute, some cars might be unavailable.
Everything fine but the spare wheel: We got one flat tire in a mountain road, and we change the wheel. But the spare wheel was really thin and weak and we couldn't continue our trip. We had to go back, find the mechanic and get a suitable wheel. We lose our day. The spare wheel should have been the appropiate one.
Bonjour, on a fait le tour de l Islande avec cette voiture , elle fonctionne très bien , mais on est un peu déçu , car cette voiture n est pas vraiment un 4X4 , on ne peut pas traverser la rivière avec cette voiture , on n a pas pu accéder à la montagne à partir de la ville vik . Voilà c est mon avis et Merci
I rented a Duster 2016. It had various smaller damages, but nothing serious.
I received the car very fast without a lot of documents to fill out additionally, and the return was also easy. Also I liked, that the did not try to sell me more insucrance.
Blue car rental were very easy to deal with and had the best offer I could find on the market. If they have more cars, they also seem very flexible if you want to change it.
