Reviews for Camping Cars
The car is exactly what you need = reliable, clean, spacious
The car has a lot of miles on it but everything seemed as good as new= suspension, tires, a/c.
I traveled by myself for four days and drove about 966 miles around all of Iceland - including the west coast - through the rain, the mountains, the valleys and the gravel roads.
This car is the car your uncle would lend you = Safe, reliable, and well driven but not concerned about cosmetics flaws.
Camping Cars was fantastic and a great way to see Iceland. The service was friendly and the car was great - surprisingly comfortable sleeping on the top of the car. Would definitely recommend to anyone traveling through Iceland.
Couldn't have asked for a better experience with renting our vehicle. Camping Cars and Northbound were super accommodating and managed to help us with some last second changes to our rental.
The car itself ran perfectly and the roof tent was better than we expected. Slept great and drove great. Highly recommend Camping Cars.
We ended up switching to a manual Dacia Duster with a rooftop tent and absolutely loved it! Such a wonderful way to explore the country. Our two year old daughter loved it too!
All good! Smooth pick up and drop off. Reliable car. Easy to use rooftop.
Great Northbound comparator and Camping Cars provider.
Very friendly people at the car rental. The Grand Vitara was no the newest, but probably still one of the best in its class for Icelandic roads. The tent was pretty comfortable. Highly recommended.

The car itself was not great. It's extremely basic and lacks simple features that I typically expect on even the cheapest cars like cruise control, air conditioning, automatic transmission, or even a simple center console to use as an armrest or to store phones, snacks, batteries etc.
That said, the car functioned perfectly well enough for getting around the country. It was reliable and stayed on the road, even through rivers and F roads. The service from Camping Cars itself was excellent, from pickup through explanations, communication etc. The service was always friendly and knowledgeable and helpful. Were I to do this again I might spring for a slightly more expensive car.
camping cars was excellent. picked up at airport on time then drove short distance to pick up car which was very good condition for age. the roof tent was very good and easy to put up and down. we also got quite a few tips on route we were taking and a few pointers on places to go that I did not read about. The wifi was also a great help for navigating. I would certainly recommend them and would use again.
We had a great trip - everything went smoothly with Northbound and CampingCars - and the trip was amazing.
It was really great, easy to drive and extremely comfortable seats for the long drives. We also found the tent to be way more spacious and comfortable than I thought it would be to sleep in. Although we did get wet one night after heavy rain as it pelted against the lining of the tent.
Great car to do the circle road and gravel roads. In the end, we didn't take the f roads but if you want, you can do this. The tent on top of the roof is easy to set up, just 1 minute and easy to take down, max 2 minutes. We went in June and during the day the weather was great but at night it cooled down to approximately 5 degrees. Good sleeping bags are therefore highly recommended :)
Amazing. Great service. Thoroughly enjoyed our time.
The car was perfect for our needs and the round-trip through Iceland!
Only the wheels on one of the cars were in a bad condition!

We loved our Dacia Duster, the helpfulness of the staff and the camping package offered. We had a terrific 4 day visit and would love to return. The wifi was great as we were able to take pictures and share with friends and family on the go! The car was all 4x4 yet easy to drive like a normal car and had plenty of space and comfortable. I must admit my partner knew them from 30 years ago and was apprehensive but found it a great car now.
My experience with the company could not be better. Friendly people, ready to help you at any time, comprehensive with last minute “things”... So far is the best experience I ever had when renting a car :-)
It was amazing, experienced great amount of freedom, and the car even though it was a little bit more on the used side, it performed excellent. The biggest drawback for me was the lack of ability to interact with the sound system, bluetooth, aux-input, or otherwise, it would have made the trip that much more excellent. Great service from the staff, thank you
Absolutely amazing. Car was in great shape! Onroad and offroad, staff is super friendly and helpful. This is very much recommended you'll love it.
My car was changed to Ford escape model, but we didn't have any problems anyway. The roof tent was really warm, so we could sleep very well.
Overall, our journey in Iceland was really good and beautiful. I think that rent a car was the best choice.
In addition, I want to highlight the service by the company when I asked you for more information few months ago. Liam was really kind and professional, helping us a lot with all our doubts.
Great experience. The service was great and we had no problem with de car or tent. We’ll repeat! Thanks so much
Wonderful place, extremely nice people. Car was great for our trip throughout Iceland!
We did. a wonderful Journey around the island and enjoyed this good fourwheeler offering all possibilities needed to drive and stay. The roof tent was very comfortable even for two tall men. Northbound stuff was extremly kind, flexibel and had good informations for us, eben concerning really bad weather on our tour, so we could avoid this region. Thank you!
Amazing customer service!
Really nice people and everything worked perfect with the car! :-)
I'm glad that I chose to rent my camper from Northbound, they have great selection of campers (e.g., mixture of size, automatic vs. manual, etc.) and it was fairly easy and straightforward to rent from the company! I also love how great their customer service was. We arrived to the airport late due to flight delayed, but after we contacted the company somebody was able to get to the airport within 10 minutes and drove us to the rental company. I will not hesitate to rent from the same company the next time I'm in Iceland as well as recommend this company to all of my friends who are planning to travel to Iceland!
Nothing to complain about, everything reaches our expectations. We got Grand Vitera for 9 days, Check in and Check out with company was smooth and easy. Informative and careful staffs. we have some amazing experience with it! surely recommended...
Absolutely awesome. Everything was perfect and we have so much luck to meet Runar. He was kind enough to help us planning our staying and giving us the best tips. The 4x4 and tent was in perfect condition. Very good company, even send emails to warn you about the weather in case you haven't. Thank you very much for everything. Maria & Davide
