Reviews for Camping Cars
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
I am so happy my husband and I chose Camping Cars. They met us at the airport to bring us to our car. They were also very helpful with giving tips on where to shop and general tips about traveling in Iceland. We will definitely be using Camping Cars again.
It was excellent

The experience was amazing, easy comunication, staff very kind and perfect car for your adventure. I highly recomend this company because the prices are at the same time very good

Northbound was a very easy to use car rental comparison site that gave me my best option for my week in Iceland. However the experience with their partner Camping Cars was not so great. Very forceful in selling their insurance - even though I told them I have both my credit card and private travel insurance. They then went on to put a hold of the complete excess on my credit card (~AUD $4,500. A lot of money when you're travelling on top of my week's rental cost). After that, they told me to sign an agreement that I would pay for any damages without showing me a condition report of the car. When asked to see the report, I was advised they take images of the car and keep it on file and they cannot show me the files: I should take my own photos. Very skeptical! Lastly, they told me the car petrol meter was broken and that's why the indicator does not reach the top (where it indicate full...
Booking was easy. When I changed the date of my reservation though, it seemed that there was a miscommunication with Camping Cars because they were waiting for me at the airport on the wrong day. Thankfully it got sorted out and pick up was a breeze. Super friendly and helpful service at pick up and through out the trip, until after I dropped off the car.
At that point, things took a major nose dive.
I returned the car close to empty. I did this because I did not receive the car full and was not told it needed to be filled up before dropping it off. If I had been told that, I would have taken a photo of the gas tank metre when I received it. I also wasn't told that Camping Cars has a discount with Olis, which would have been helpful during my travels. Unfortunately, Camping Cars refuses to give me any credit towards the gas, so I'm stuck paying for a full tank, even though I didn't get one...
We had a great experience with Camping Cars. The car we had booked online wasn't ready when we arrived, so we got a different one and they gave us a discount on the final price. Everyone we spoke to was super helpful not just with the car itself but also giving us tips and lots of information for our route. Good price for a good car that I would definitely recommend.
The service of CampingCars was amazing - can recommend 100%. We had a technical issue on the road and Bogi (from CampingCars) managed to resolve it with lightning speed and to our satisfaction, fixed issue temporarily so that we could continue while he sent another car to meet us on the road and switch. Therefore we lost no time and could stick to the plan. Highly recommend.
The staff was very nice and helpful. Very quick to keep us informed and answer emails. Airport pickup worked out great. The car and wifi worked great the entire time. The tent was excellent, even in Icelandic weather. I highly recommend!
Our trip began with an enthusiastic welcome from the Camping Cars representative at the airport. The experiencing picking up the car was very smooth and the representative even gave us a recommended route based on what we wanted to see. His recommendations did not disappoint. The tent held up well to the rain and wind and kept us warm and dry. It was quick and easy to set up. We enjoyed the freedom the SUV with a tent provided. If we go back to Iceland we will definitely consider booking through them again. The representative we returned the car to and took us back to the airport was also super upbeat and genuinely wanted to know how our trip was.
Wonderful group of people, from our pickup and drop off drivers, to the agent that helped get us set up with our trusty little camping car. They gave us great tips on getting around and all the good sites to help us find camping sites, nearby hot springs, and check for updated road conditions. We even got alerts from them throuout our trip with alerts regarding severe weather conditions to help us stay safe. Highly recommend spending a little extra to have WiFi for the vehicle.
Camping Cars has been great.
A nice welcome at the airport, kind words, suggestions and descriptions for our trip!
The guys at desk has been very polite and had great attentions to our needs, starting our journey and after for our questions. They helped us providing weather informations, streets, services.
My kids and I had a great time, felt safe with the car and the assistance.
The car was perfect for our needs and the price worth. All the service from Camping Cars was very good, kind and professional.
Only we arrived sure that we could have two sleeping beds, as told by phone by Northbound before leaving, so we took just one with us. At Camping Cars they haven't been informed, but they provided us some blankets to pass the night. It wasn't enough and I had to buy other sleeping bags at a high price and low quality: we were too far from technical shops and we had to buy in a camping...
We had an excellent experience with Camping Cars. They picked us up from the airport, explained everything well. It was my first time driving on the right hand side of road and also an automatic car. Staff was really friendly and helpful, especially when I needed assistance with something. I would highly recommend this company. The roof tent was really easy to set up and put away. Very comfortable and just enough room for myself and my 2 children. Also good in windy conditions.

We were more than satisfied with the car and the rooftent. It is super easy to set it up and it also keeps rain outside. The matrace is thick enough to feel comfy. It was a very good way of experiencing iceland. The only info that was missing a bit was how long it actually is. For people who are 1.90m and taller it can get tight. Also, if the car key is kept in the tent, one can still open the car by pressing the button on the door.. maybe something to think about. But I guess in Iceland it is not such big a deal anyway. Otherwise it was all perfectly fine. The pickup and return of the car was absolutely easy and the staff was very friendly! I would definitely recommend this company!
Hi, our trip was superb! But Suzuki was too old actually. It’s brakes were not working well. But guy from the rent company super friendly. Thank you very much.
Great trip! Thankfully pretty good weather. Our car camper was great, but best for one person or 2 small people.
Excellent! No problem at all and good value for money. Very helpful staff.
Great car, very handy on gravel roads, the roof of the tent is so easy to use (sometimes a bit tricky to close when the roof is wet though!)
Very friendly staff!!
the car was excellent, roof tent didn`t keep strong rain outside
This was a great choice for our trip. The car ran perfectly and the roof tent was amazing! Everyone we interacted with at Camping Cars was professional, friendly, and helpful.
Excellent! Very good experience. The wifi worked perfectly, very nice car to drive, pop up tent was easy to use, very comfortable car.
The experience was really good, and the service excellent.
The only thing I would suggest is that their cars have some aux port or bluetooth to listen to music. Or cds to listen to.
I am very happy with the service offered by Camping Cars. They were very kind and gave us a lot of possibilities to pick up the car and to leave it because my arrival and departure flights were very eary in the morning and the office was not opened at that time.
I had always the possibility of keeping contact with Bogi and it was very nice because it was my first time in Iceland and i was a bit nervous about the car and everything.
The car was excellent and we had a lot of fun!
What else could I ask for?
Fantastic. Everything from being collected at the airport, sincerely friendly staff and great recommendations to the vehicle itself and roof tent. Definitely a roof tent convert, best way to explore this beautiful country!
I did a good research about some of the rental companies and I feel I made the right decision picking Camping Cars. They were completely professional from the beginning ever since I made reservations. Communicating with me, Coming on right time and picking me from the airport, and providing all the information I was looking for.
The WiFi they provided was a life safer and I used that to communicate to outside world while staying at places and driving all around. I was provided with extra blankets as it was cold. The car was great with a tent on top.
I already told several of my friends, and they will be looking forward to talk to Camping cars. I gave my feedback right away to Camping cars while returning the cars to get bigger Campers :), because I will be visiting Iceland again with family.
If you are thinking to rent from Camping Cars, go for it in a heartbeat.
Wonderful service and a quality vehicle. Everything was taken care of and extra amenities, such as free mobile WiFi, made everything go very smoothly. Roof tent camping honestly seems like the best way to expierience the natural beauty of the country. Can definitely recommend this company to anyone looking to visit Iceland!
