Reviews for Lava Car Rental
The car was good and no problems along the way. However no one showed up at the arrival hall as promised, so we had to call and ask for pick up and had to wait for 30 minutes. It did not matter so much to us, but could imagine other travellers getting stressed of the same situation. It was overall a great experience and would recommend it to others.
Great experience, delivered exactly what we needed for a great trip
I own a ford 350 1 ton pickup and I have always had a pickup. When we arrived I wasn’t sure what to expect when I seen the Dacia Duster. I was worried about how it would handle on the ice and snow. I was very impressed. The duster was awesome and had great traction in the worst of storms. I would go back to Iceland again and rent a duster for sure. Northbound was outstanding. Customer service was great. They picked us up at the gate and delivered us back to the airport. If you are going to rent a car go with Northbound you won’t be disappointed. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Great car did very well on the snow. Never got stuck handled well and GPS works well.
It was a great car in great condition.

Excellent. Lava was very responsive while we were on the road. It would have been nice to have the car manual, but otherwise it was perfect.
GREAT SERVICE AND GREAT SELECTION OF CARS.....THANKS
The car had all kinds of features that were necessary or comfortable for our journey. Generally it was in a good shape, despite of the missing rear window wiper. The car already had run roundabout 146.000 kilometers, but it did not feel this way.
We could trust in the car and its tires and managed all weather and road conditions.
We did never regret our decision for the car.
The rental was quick easy and uncomplicated, the car was flawless and I miss it now I‘m home again. The only bad thing was that they warned me about a toll for a tunnel close to Akureyri the day I was flying back home. By then I had already gone through that tunnel and had to pay the toll and because I didn’t book the tunnel in advance, a handeling fee which was double the toll. Other than that I was very happy!
The car in itself was perfect for our trip, however we received an email warning us about a toll in a tunnel in the north that we had to pay AFTER the trip was over, so we did not know about it beforehand and ended being charged 3 times what it was supposed to cost. Also when it was time to give the car back, nobody was at the office at 5:30am even though we had agreed on it and they were supposed to be there from 5am. So we waited 20 minutes outside with a flight to catch... So a little bit disappointed in the service but the car, again, was exactly what we wanted.
Experience was great, after we landed on Keflavik airport, they picked us up and drove to the station, where we received our rented car. Everything was smooth and we even got a brand new car. There was no problem during the time we spent in Iceland. i also appreciated, they added my email address to the a generally generated email about the road/weather conditions in Iceland. This helped a lot during winter time ! Next time we return to Iceland, will definitely choose your service.
Very pleased with a quick efficient airport collection and dropping off car. The blogs of both Northbound and Lava rentals gave a lot of extremely interesting and useful information. The weather warnings from Lava rentals were also very useful. I have not come across this feature with a car rental company before and it is to be much applauded.
The car was perfect for our trip. Winter tires with spikes and all.
Only leaving the car in the middle of the night on the airport parking was a bit awkward.
Great company, easy to use and no horror stories you read online!
Perfect Service and a new car with only 5600 km

The car was excellent and the attitude of the team was professional. The procedure for hiring and returning the car is very fast, and the transfer to the airport is convenient. The only note in my case was the lack of 3/4 of the spikes on the front tires, which did not affect the vehicle's behavior in any obvious way, but in real winter conditions, that's not good. I definitely recommend the company and I would certainly reap the benefits of it.
It was a Tucson but,it was great!
Everything was well organized, both getting the car (via shuttle) as well as leaving the car at the airport at 3 o’clock in the morning. Good price. If we have to mention a remark: Maybe a little more information as to the functioning of the car would have been useful, but this is a minor remark.
It was perfect! everything so good. I want to come back and of course I will rest with you again.
It was great! Good transfer to and from the airport and the car ran well.
Everything was fast and easy. There were no hold ups when we collected and dropped off the car. The car was in great condition and we had no trouble with it. Everything was just excellent. I would 100% recommend to a friend and absolutely use you again if I return to Iceland.
Great experience with Lava Car Rental. Very friendly and accomodating. Car was in great condition. Thank you, Northbound!
Northbound had the lowest price we could find and Lava Rental provided a great experience. Truly a breeze. As soon as we came out of the airport, Lava Rental representative was waiting for us, drove 5-10min to the rental place and it took literally 5min to be on the road. That's the beauty of booking and renting from a local well-managed company. Thanks.
