We had an excellent time in this car! Clean. Comfortable. No problems functioning. There is a number for 24-hour roadside assistance, which gave us peace of mind. We'd definitely rent through this company again!

We had a small problem with the pick up. We were told the driver came every half hour so we waited half an hour and then phoned the company and finally they sent a driver. Perhaps to compensate they gave us a free WiFi hotpot for the duration of the rental which helped enormously for using our phones for navigation and was greatly appreciated. Othe than that all was good.

We did not get the VW, instead we ended up with a Renault with just over 5,000 km on it. Once we figured out where everything was on it, it worked out great for us. Only comment for improvement that we had was to have additional counter staff that could help out with pick up when a full van arrived from the airport. Everyone wants to get going and with only one person on the counter we had to wait for over half an hour to get our turn to get the vehicle. Counter staff were very helpful but busy as well so if you missed something in the brief vehicle overview you had to wait again to see the lone counter person or interrupt their discussion with another party.

Actually I received another car instead of the VW Golf, but it was an even nicer car, with the same features that I wished for. Pick up and drop off were easy and smooth, and the staff was very friendly and helpful. I would definetely recommend and book again.

Hello, when I arrived at the airport and went outside I noticed that the go car rental wasn’t exactly close like the email I received said it would be. Luckily I had service and was able to access my email. Go Car rental sent me a email telling me it was going to pick me and my friends up at the airport to go to their location, which was not walkable by the way. When we got to their location and checked in I was not given a Subaru but was given a Mitsubishi hybrid. It took me by surprise because I thought we would have been given a Subaru but it was not a big deal. We took the car and it was fine.

Northbound provided great customer service in organising the car for our travels in Iceland. They helped to facilitate the pick-up from our hotel in Reykjavik too. Go Car Rental upgraded us to a Dacia Duster which was also 4wd which was very nice of them. The car was clean and drove well. The Go Car Rental staff were very professional also, so overall it it was a great experience.

The electric car was quite decent to drive and manoeuvre around tight spaces. The false warnings threw me a bit, but overall decent car.

The car itself was absolutely amazing no problem and really clean. But the service from Go rental was no nice at all. Nobody at the airport. Nobody to respond to the phone and nobody to explain really. The agency is not anymore in the airport but in Keflavick. So you should do something about that

We get a nice Car, the Car was good and drove around iceland without any Problems. At the Handing over of the Car, IT was Not Clean and the Car needed a Inspektion. I would Wish These Problems were fixed, before WE get the Car.

Hi As it was a new car, once it had done a few kms, it was good. Liked the fact it was a hybrid, as saved a little bit on fuel expense. The office staff were helpful and really appreciated the tip about holding onto the doors. We had not heard of wind buckling doors elsewhere. I may have missed it, but I could not find an email confirmation from Northbound after booking the car. And then was slightly confused, between 'Go' and Northbound and wondered if I had actually booked 2 cars from 2 separate companies, before the email arrived in the 1-2 weeks before our arrival.

We rented a GPS. It looked quite old and stopped working when we drove about 15 km from the rental office at the airport. We had to drive back to the rental office to return the defective GPS and get another one that worked. The staff at the rental office had another GPS but was reluctant to give it to us offering a Wi-Fi connection instead. We insisted getting a GPS which we had paid for. He finally gave us the other GPS but never apologized to us for the inconvenience and waste of time we had to experience.

We had 7 adults and this van was perfect for all of us and our luggage. The vehicle had high mileage so it has been used by many happy travelers. There are a few things that should be fixed such as: backup camera, aux charger in front, and the front windows should be cleaned to ensure proper operation (I think the last renter must have gone through a sand storm as they were slow to operate as there was much sand in the tracks).

The car was perfect for our tour. We could manage any open street on the island without any problem. I guess only for F-roads you need a bigger 4WD .

Pickup was great. Car was great. Dropoff was a disaster. I needed to drop the car at 5:30am. The office was closed. There was no place to park and no instructions on the door. Your call center was closed. My international departure was fast approaching and I didn't know what to do with the car or the keys. Two other customers in the same predicament pulled up while I was trying to figure out what to do. Eventually, your agent arrived at 6am, took the keys and bid me a good journey. It soured my impression of your service. To say I felt disappointed is mild.

The rental place was tip top. Great service. Highly recommend. But the car was too small. It seats seven but honestly if you have five adult people and two big bags it will not work for you. Think about it.
