Hello Service in GO Car rental could have been faster. When client comes to office, it would be nice that you would have service, instead of walking around and fixing places (personnel). In dropoff situation I had a feeling that they tried very Hard to find something to extra invoice.

Go Car Rental Reykjavic experience was good. Only issue was the fuel tank was empty when we picked it up instead if full. The lady we told about this said it was fine to fill it as we left Keflavík and bring it back empty. The problem was that she did not make a note of this on the records so there was a bit of a drama when we returned the car with low fuel tank. Luckily we had taken a photo before we drove off on the first day showing the petrol light on. Other than that the car was very good for 2 people, 2 suitcases and 2 backpacks. Brand new car. Good milage from the diesel tank. Handled the steep slopes and bends well. I would recommend getting a bigger transfer van or having 2 vans running each way because on pick up there was not enough room for my wife and she had to wait at the airport for the driver to come back and get her.

Everything was great with our rental car for our trip to Iceland. The car was exactly what we reserved, it was clean when we picked it up, the shuttle drivers were both friendly, and so were the office associates. Super-fast (compared to other rental agencies) check-in/out at the desk, too. I would highly recommend using GO Car Rental.

This was our first of many trips to Iceland. We prebooked months in advance and our driver/transport to car rental was waiting for us at the airport. Our plane landed after they closed so it felt above and beyond from them to be waiting for us after hour. She explained everything throughly and went over all insurance options. Nicely answered all my questions. Went by effortlessly and will use them again in our future visit to this beautiful country.

The car was a perfect size for our needs. The staff at Go was so kind and helpful, they made for an easy pick-up and drop-off. The car itself is definitely not suitable for long distance, WINDY drives due to its lack of aero-dynamics. It was difficult to keep the light and boxy car on the road while managing the speed limit, taking it slower in the higher winds out East.

A little difficulty in getting picked up at the airport, probably our fault - but other than that, great experience and rental.

It wasn't a Subaru, But it was a small SUV hybrid that was about the same size and worked very well for our driving around the country

Hi, I was given a different car (Suzuki Swift). Aside from the fact that it did not have a built-in navigation system, everything worked very well. The only issue was returning the car, since at the day of the dropoff the office was closed. This was not a big issue since the instructions at the door were very clear and the actual drop-off place was just beside the airport. Best regards, Martin M.

Car was good. If there was more than one van taking people to airport would be better

Hæ! When we arrived at the airport we waited 1 hour for the shuttle bus, when the driver came the would not have all 3 passenger with him in the bus, because we did not have a children seat with us. I told the driver that I have rented a car with a car seat because I did not have a child seat with me in the flight. But he would not have the child with him in the car with no car seat, and that is also all right! But when we have ordered a car with a car seat, they should have one with him in the bus. So my husband had to go with the bus to your office and get the car, and then drive back for the airport for picking up me and our son. When my husband picked up the car, they told him that the gas was full on the car, it was not full it was only half full, but when we returned the car we have filled up the car, because i have read in the policy that it cost 35 euro in a fine, if you don't fill up the gas. We got a Renault Meagan instead of a Volkswagen Golf, that was okay. And the car was fine, so there was no problem there.

Thank you Ivan. We loved Iceland and will be back for sure. It was the first time since six years without the kids to have a vacation. I’m a car guy and very particular. So I’ve noticed that the car had very worn winter tires when we got there. I’ve asked the staff to put new tires on the car which they did, even with spikes which saved our trip on a steep icy road. We had to wait a while but it was worth it. Everything was perfect with the car and it took us all around Iceland for over 2000km. Unfortunately we had to make several trip change even for the last day. I k ow you have a 48h policy when we picked up the car to not make any change. Due to some unforeseen circumstances we had to shorten our trip by one day and I’d like to ask you kindly if you’d be willing to refund us the last unused day for the rental car?

Everything went smooth and easy. The instruction to reach the rental office were clear and the personnel nice. The car was perfect, with very good self-driving capabilities. Just a note: on the back trip from the rental office to the airport, you could have to wait more than expected due to the limited number of seats on the shuttle. This can be a problem if time is tight before the flight.

Insgesamt komfortables, einwandfreies Auto mit vielen Funktionen und Extras Auto war nur zu ca 70% getankt und gar nicht aufgeladen (Hybrid); es gab keine Einweisung in die Funktionsweise des Autos durch den Mitarbeiter; bei der Abholung vom Flughafen war uns nicht bewusst, dass die Autovermietung "GO Car" hieß und wir beim Meeting Point nach dem Schild suchen mussten

Our car was great and reliable. We had no trouble navigating the difficult road conditions some of Iceland has to offer. We didn't take any F-roads but the road was still sometimes difficult to manage. The windscreen wipers for our car desperately needed reply, event before we picked it up and on a few occasions the front passenger side window was not working correctly and required manual support if the window had been rolled down. We were always able to bring it back up though after a few tries. Other than these 2 minor issues, we had a great experience with Go Car Rental and would use their services again.

Very easy as far as renting the car, the agent I met was incredibly helpful as far as what to do or not to do to keep the car safe, given the weather conditions in Iceland, as well as covering key driving laws, what to watch for and where to go for great sights. Never had a car rental agency be this helpful. Also, the car was top of the line while being affordable, was perfect for everywhere I wanted to go and quite comfortable. Thank you!
