I was satisfied with the operation of the vehical and the check in and check out were efficient. I asked for instruction in use of the GPS and felt the instruction was "rushed" and attendent was impation with questions. The GPS was poor at finding most of the places we wanted to go and we ended up using Google Maps. I would recommend that more detail be provided about getting the correct fuel type and procedure at pumps. For example how to get your receipt.

Lava is a family owned company & provided excellent service from picking us up at the airport to providing us with a great vehicle and once we had to say goodbye to Iceland they delivered us seamlessly back to the airpirt. Will use them again!

Very reliable and good company. We had to wait a little for pick up. The return was quick and efficient. Good coffee machine - if you leave at dawn.

In general, we were satisfied after we finally got a car without any unnecessary signal light on dashboard (the first and the second car had one warning light constantly on) . We had enough room for 4+1 people and 2 big 2 small suitcases and additional bags and backpacks. Fuel consumption was low.

We loved the size of the vehicle; it was easy to drive and had good fuel economy. Although it was a simple camper set up it was comfortable and adequate for the two of us.
The booking was simple and I was kept well informed. There were no nasty surprises and we got exactly what we expected.

My experience with Lava Auto Car Rental was great. The airport pick up was awesomely convenient (even though our flight was delayed and we have arrived well after midnight) as well as the airport drop off at the end of our trip. The car we rented Dacia Duster was reliable and we have not experienced any issues while traveling ~ 3000km. The Lava Auto Car Rental office is also conveniently located close to the Keflavik airport. Overall based on our experience I would strongly recommend the Lava Car Hire as well as Northbound who seamlessly arranged all requirements.

Lava Auto Rentals was a good value compared to the largest firms. The location was convenient, very close to the airport. The 4wd vehicles are new and clean. I liked having the bundle option to combine all the insurance coverage together in one, easy to understand description at a reduced price compared to purchasing individually. No issues happened during our one week rental. They dropped us back off to the airport in no time. Great experience with Northbound and Lava Rentals.

Good car, rather high price, the employees couldn't answer all our questions and didn't spend a lot of time giving instructions. Fortunately we are familiar with 4X4 vehicles. They were not complicated when we brought back the car.

I found the whole experience hassle free. Very organised company, picked us up at the airport. Not too much paper work or fuss at the office. Happy with the car, clean and a pleasure to drive. Just what we needed to get around Iceland. Very good service when we dropped the car off early before our flight. I would use this company again and highly recommend them!

Good experience. 4.5 instead of 5 because we arrived at Lava office at 5 am for ride to airport and no one there. Left at 5:25a after reading note on door stating to leave car at airport. I had received a parking ticket (see below) and wanted to talk to staff in person. Was given no chance. What I emailed your staff:

Acknowledge receipt please. I received a parking ticket but could not take care of due to bank being closed on weekend. It is for $10000 or $100 US. Pls use card on file to pay. I was inside asking a restaurant where to park when I received ticket.

I left ticket in glovebox with keys and paperwork. I parked as indicated below.

P3 C3 6th spot on right. Gray Duster.

We rented a 2017 vehicle with plans to drive around Iceland. The staff were extremely easy to work with and very friendly. They also were quick to respond when we experienced automotive problems, as can happen anytime we had car issues. On the 2nd day we ended up getting a flat tire which we changed. Since we had just started our adventure we contacted Lava and they recommended we take it to a mechanic to get the flat repaired or replaced. After doing that we drove another 200 Kilometers and started to notice a clunking when turning at slow speeds. Again we contacted Lava and they instructed us to take the vehicle to a mechanic. The Mechanic stated the differential had to be repaired. Lava then took the initiative to have one of their staff drive a brand new rental out to us 7 hours from their office. It was there the next night and the rest of our experience went without an issue. I was very pleased with how well and quickly Lava responded to the particular issue.

This was by far thee best rental company I have ever rented a car from. The process was simple. The staff were incredibly friendly and accommodating. I truly wish every car I rented was an experience like this one. The bonus was that the car was awesome for our Icelandic adventure. A big thank you to the Lava team!!

The overall experience with Lava Auto was great. Easy communication, pick up in time even when we arrived few hours before the expected arrival time. New clean car without any problems. Returning of the car was without any major hassle even though we have returned the car so dirty that you can hardly recognise the manufacturer :) I will definitelly take Lava Auto next time too.

Very positive. Communication was excellent through Liam as I had to amend the dates of our rental. The pick up at the airport by the driver is a great feature as he was waiting and easy to identify displaying a card with our name on it. The Duster was a perfect vehicle to navigate the roads of Iceland. Thanks for making our trip hassle free for our transportation needs.

Absolutey great experience with Lava Auto. The car was exactly as described and the company was so helpful and nice. They arranged for the car to be brought to us downtown rather than the airport (for a fair charge) and were very transparent. I highly recommend northbound services and especially lava auto. We had such a smooth first time car renting experience!

Great, special acknowledgement for the LAVA RENTAL service, we picked up our car with 12 hours delay at 00;00 with a kind welcome. The car 4x4 was perfect, even on tracks , excluding crossing deep rivers, very confortable, and consume a little fuel. Return kind and efficient with a rapid shuttle to the aeroport. At the end, value for money was very good for this vehicule in this country .

The car rental experience was great. We waited a while at the airport when we arrived and had to phone to check we were going to be met but that was not a big problem. The car was good also. We had a flat tyre while driving in the Western Fjords and had the tyre replaced. The mechanic said it wad not a puncture but was a faulty tyre and that we should be refunded by Lava Autos. On returning the car and producing the report from the mechanic we were refunded without any argument. Good service and well located for proximity to the airport. We would definitely recommend your company to friends visiting Iceland.

This was a very easy car rental experience and priced less than half of the larger brands. All of their employees were very friendly. We would definitely use them again.

Everything went well. The car met our needs and handled perfectly. I was a little concerned that the gas tank was only 7/8 full but the Lava car agent told me to bring it back at least 7/8 full and there would be no problem. He was correct. One suggestion that would have made things easier for me is for the Lava agent to have informed me how to shift into reverse on the Dacia Duster. I was not familiar with that car and had to ask someone on the street. Otherwise everything was great. Thank you so much and I would definitely recommend your company.

LAVA was outstanding. We have already been recommending them on the Iceland FB Pages we are a part of. We had no troubles checking in or out. We were able to get a hold of a customer service rep whenever we needed help on the road (flat tires). We had excellent coverage Tire Insurance Protection (SO happy we purchased it). No excess was charged despite all the horror stories we heard online about different car rental companies in Iceland. The Dacia Duster SUV 4WD handled 2400miles over 3 weeks utilizing many F and gravel roads. The only thing we suggest is that Lava put a tire gauge inside each car. Not all air machines were functioning or included tire gauge and it's pretty important to know if your tire is at the right level with the types of roads we were driving. We wonder if this contributed to the two flats we got (on our parties two cars). Northbound handled the reservation efficiently and even helped us change it when we researched a better contract early on (we secured this reservation through Northbound 6 mos. prior to travel).
