Reviews for Icerental 4x4
The experience con Icerantal was more then posiive
Initially I should have gone in July 2020. And then arrived Covid .....
The company give me a voucher for another trip, and when I decided to come in february 2021 (obviously a less expensive month) they give me a refund for the excess and box the next car
I decided to book a Toyota RAV 4x4 (february in Iceland?? Better to be prepared!)
They waited for me at keflavik airport and the check in of the car was easy end fast
I decided on a Silver Insurance for my week driving on the South Coast , and the car was exactly how i was expecting
I didn't have any problems (tip: drive slooooowly in the strong winds and you'll never have problems , and the rain with the winter tires is not a trouble. Idem for the ice)
I returned the car and the check out was more than easy
When I'll return to Iceland I'll be sure to rent another car from them
Icerental 4x4 has provided a car that was almost new. The whole rental process was fast and hassles free. On the return the staff checked only if the car was severely dameged whiteout trying to force any additional payment.
Thank you for this great feedback. We are thrilled to hear that you enjoy'd our service at Icerental4x4.
The car was great even though had some serious damages outside. We felt safe all the time.
We are glad to hear that the car served you well for your trip. Thank you for choosing Icerental4x4.
The general expirience with Icerental was great. The staff were very friendly and patientlys explained everything to us. The car( Suzuki Vitara) was very goog and i really enjoyed driving with it. One day the oil lamp on our car was on but we were helped very quickly.
I would book my car there again at any time.
Thank you for taking the time to review us. We are happy to hear that you enjoy'd our service here at Icerental4x4 and that the Vitara treated you well for your trip. Hopefully we will have the opportunity to meet you again here in Iceland!
Finally we didn’t rent a toyota rav4 because company hadn’t any available. Instead of toyota they gave us a suzuki t cross. So we are very disappointed about this. Northbound was an excellent company though.
Thank you for the feedback. We are sorry to hear that you were disappointed with our service at Icerental4x4. We do advertise our vehicles 'or similar' but we always try our best to provide the vehicle booked.
Everything from start to finish was excellent. It was an unusual time (in COVID June 2020) but also a great time to drive the wilderness and meet Icelanders. The car and roof-tent were in good condition and everything was explained clearly by friendly staff. I managed to cross the Koljur route with Midnight Sun and 4 days of sunny weather (rare in Iceland!) and swam in many hot-pots too. The midge screens on the tent worked very well at keeping out the wee beasties and the Suzuki Jimny coped very well with gravel roads. Takk fyrir allt !
Thank you for this great review. We are happy to hear that you had a great time in Iceland and that you our service at Icerental4x4.

The Suzuki Vitara 4x4 was excellent, a comfortable car suitable for Iceland's gravel roads. Of course, you cannot cross rivers, but I guess that's not allowed with any rental car for obvious reasons.
The people at Northbound are very friendly and easy-going. They picked us up at the airport and drove us to our rental car - very comfortable! Also returning the vehicle was extremely easy. We had an early morning flight so we could simply leave the car at the airport parking garage with the keys and the parking ticket inside.
Thank you for this wonderful review. We are thrilled to hear that you had a great experience with us at Icerental4x4 and Northbound.
All over it was good. But the car had some warninglights on. Engine, inspection, air pressure in the tired. We always checked. The could be in better condition. It is not really able to go on f-roads with it because of the tired. They were down and should be replace. We didn't go to all places we wanted to go.
I have got a well maintained Jimny, especially tires, brakes and windshield wipers worked very well, what is essential when driving on F-roads or in hard weather conditions. Thank you for receiving a clean car with clean equipment and roof tent as well. I have to mention the reliable and quick response from the northbound staff, especially Thordis, when having any question. In total, the booking experience and customer support from northbound.is was outstanding! My best experience in Iceland after already 15 visits!! TAKK FYRIR FROM ISLANDSVINUR NICO!!
We did not get the guaranteed model but a Suzuki Grand Vitara. I think it was a higher category but used a lot of gas and the car seemed really old and noisy. Some things were obviously broken or worn down.
The camping box included what was described but could have been better quality i.e. the thermos didn't keep the heat, the pan was dirty and there was no sharp knife to cut.
Sleeping bags and roof tent were okay but no high quality, they weren't warm enough for the cold nights and the roof tent didn't keep the rain out for long.
We had a great trip and the car with equipment was okay, it enabled us to go relaxed on all roads.
It was really amazing! The car was great and the tent on the root was just perfect for the trip we planned! Thank you very much, guys!
Everything OK, reliable Car but quite used with 200k+ km. Unfortunately consumes a lot of fuel.
Nice people at the Rental place
Eine gute, unkomplizierte und zuverlässige Autovermietung. Nur zu empfehlen.
Best prices I found online. Good transfer to/from airport. The car was not on perfect conditions (one light broken) neither the camping material (seats broken and useless table). They could also improve customer service.
Das Auto war unseren Anforderungen entsprechend. Enttäuscht waren wir allerdings von dem Dachzelt, da es nach 5 Regentagen nicht mehr bewohnbar war. Die Abdichtung am Heck des Zeltes war undicht und die Matratze konnte man auswringen.
We were disappointed with the rented vehicle: the handbrake did not work, there was no more washer fluid. We did appreciate the heated seats, however ;-)
The procedures for taking the vehicle are simple, we would have appreciated that the inventory of fixtures be established jointly with the lessor and this, to facilitate the inventory of fixtures when the vehicle is handed over at the end of the rental.

It was a pleasant surprise, I have never tried it before, but it is certainly something I will do again. Easy to get around, easy to set up camp, and easy to get a good night sleep. And the car was doing his thing too. At a certain point I had to cross 21 rivers, no problem at all. I would do this again without a doubt
The car was similar but not a Hyundai Tucson but it worked. It was a Honda CR-V with 168.000 km
A lot of damages were already existing, when we took over the car. The checkout was without problems. Take a photo or video before start.
It did the job, but it wasn't 100% reliable – once the engine took a few minutes to start on the 1st day, and it was a tad scary, but there were no issues afterwards.
Our experience with Icerental 4x4 was excellent ! We had a small leak in the tent and the company provided us with a new one within 90 minutes...although we were on the other side of the country.
Car pickup was I bit hasty and staff seemed impatient, but it was busy in the shop. Otherwise we got our Suzuki in a good state and well cleaned, together with a complete damage report form from previous car damage to the outside car. Drop-off was hassle-free and friendly. Very convenient that dropoff and airport shuttle was possible at 5AM already.
Communication with Northbound was quick and easy.
The car was older and had more wear and tear than expected but did the job well and we cannot complain.
It would help to have been more clear about the tunnel toll in Akureyri which we got fined for 3 times as we did not know where the toll was supposed to be paid and we assumed it was an automatic system linked to the car licence / some magnetic strip that we would pay for at the end.
The Box between the front seats only make noise, and it's not good for anything.
The back windows wiper blade doesn't work, it only makes two stripes on the window, the window washer for the back window also doesn't work.
Otherwise the car drove us about 3.600 kms without any surprises and so everything is ok.
We rented a Dacia Duster with rooftent and had, before arriving to Iceland, To make changes. There was a fast and good response. At arrival we were picked up at the airport and after a quick explanation we were on route with the car. We were very satisfied with it, the only thing what could have been better, was the matrass. Next time in Iceland we go back to Icerental 4x4.
The car is just fantastic. We went on Iceland F-roads without any problems. 4WD mode is working nicely when needed.
About the tent, well, camping during a whole month and still dry inside. Wind is your ennemy tought, just place the car accordingly and no worries.
We extended our rent in a blink of and eye.
Efficient staff and fast.
Un véhicule confortable, propre et agréable à conduire sur les chemins.
