The car was ok. For a 2022 car I was expecting an onboard gps, but the car did it's main job perfectly, drive ne around. No complaints there.

Our experience with northbound was great, no issues at all. A little confusing on the whole pickup situation but otherwise all good. Thank you.

The review states for a 2019 Volkswagen Polo but I actually ended up with a Hyundai i20. Overall I was very happy with the car, it served me well and was a great little car. The collection was great, even though I arrived an hour earlier than expected the guys had the car ready and after a brief chat about the roads and conditions in Iceland I was on my way. Very happy with the service, I just wish I'd known the collection point was a 5 minute walk from the terminal. I ended up getting the bus but it would have been quicker for me to just walk over but this is no way is the fault of Go Rental as it was only when I dropped the car back off again I realised how close it was. I probably wouldn't have found the collection point if I had just walked from the airport but it is a very short distance.

The car has met our needs during our trip , we have appreciated the roof box. The only small problem is that we had to inflate the tyres from the third day. The drop-off at Go Car Rental into the night at the airport was not clear, I’ve never reiceved a code for the Keycafe system. So I put the key into the letter box next to the Keycafe boxes, I hope it’s OK for Go Car Rental.

We ended up switching to a Mercedes Van. The first can had a damaged tyre/wheel and we had to drive it on a spare to the main office to swap for another vehicle. This prevented us from making it to the Westfjords which was disappointing and cost us the $350 USD rental for a house for that night. The second van had to have air replaced in one of the tyres daily.

The car was great. Big, steady, with a good view on the road. Made us feel comfortable and safe as a family. The 4x4 is a handy option when you drive on newly added dirt roads or so. The price of the car is very need. The service was good, for instance refunding a repaired flat tire.

It all went really well with the car, both collection and delivery. The car fully lived up to expectations. I would like to recommend Northbound and GO Car to others. Kind regards, Anette

We had a great experience with our car rental. I needed to make a change to our reservation and there was a quick response and great customer service. It made a great trip even better. We’ll rent with GO Car again when we return to Iceland.

This was the easiest rental experience with competent staff and the best price. The car handled Icelandic weather and F roads so well that I'm considering buying one. The heated seats and heated steering wheel were unexpected and appreciated perks. Jan warned customers via email about gale force winds in the forecast, with no driving conditions all over Iceland on a day I was planning to drive into the worst of it: "I usually recommend spending the day at the swimming pool, but this is one of the biggest storms I have seen in my lifetime! Staying inside some facilities seems to be the best option. Don't forget to park facing the wind and to hold your doors when opening them! Try to find a spot that is announced green on the forecast." It was that bad and I'm grateful I heeded the warning. Thanks Northbound!

We had an incredible trip through Iceland, the car rental was part of this. It provided all the comfort and all facilities we needed. The only thing we faced was the fact that the car was equiped with summer tires (driving it around in October). For most of the trip this was absolutely fine, but we faced a (snow) storm as well. Those two days I feel that winter tyres (even the ones without spikes) would have provided us more grip on the snowy surfaces. In addition, an extra compliment for the storm warming that we received 2 days prior to the storm. This timely helped us to stock up on supplies and to park the car in a clever spot regarding the issues that could be caused by the storm. Thanks!

Car was nearly new. Support was very good and replied very fast. Only the tire pressure of the car was not OK and needed to be adjusted by us. Moreover there was a box on the roof of the car that needed to be removed. Therefore we had to take a longer route through Reykjavik which wasn’t in our plan for that day.

GO Car Rental is outstanding!!! D.J. helped me with everything! He took the time to show me different maps for navigation and weather, he took the time to walk me threw the vehicle, explained in full detail what to expect with Icelands weather and driving, cool places to go to and more. When I returned the vehicle he greeted me with a smile, was extremely easy to work with. Go Car Rental was awesome...but DJ is what made the experience extraordinary!!! I have traveled to several different countries and never had such a wonderful rental agent to work with. I will forever be a customer of Go Car Rental because of DJ! Thank you, DJ, for everything... You made a wonderful adventure even more extraordinary! Thank you! Megan USA
