Really good service picked up on time and dropped off. The Dacia was a good choice for the roads and the price excellent. Highly recommend Northern lights car rental and will be renting again later this year.

The Suzuki Vitara was a bit glitchy but still dependable. The staff were great and provided excellent service. Fully recommended.

My sister and I recently traveled to Iceland and were very worried about choosing a car rental company. We had read and heard of horror stories from different companies. I am so glad that we went with Northern Lights Car Rental! They made the entire process surprisingly easy. We were picked up from the airport at the correct time. When we arrived to their facility to pick up the car they were very kind, offered us a cup of coffee, and went over the rental agreement with us. They were very helpful and even upgraded our car which was wonderful in the snowy conditions. We had no issues whatsoever. When we dropped the car off I couldn't believe how easy the process was. We were driven back to the airport as soon as we arrived. Thank you for your kindness and for answering all of our (many) questions! Would highly recommend.

Great experience from start to finish. Any enquiry by email was answered within hours, Thankyou Thordis. When we arrived in Reykjavik at midnight, we were immediately transferred to the car rental terminal just off the airport. I actually booked a Suzuki Vitara for 4 days but was upgraded at no charge. Took the platinum insurance package just to be sure, but no issues at all. I took photos around the car as recommended by the representative from Northbound, returned it with a full tank and we were transported back to the airport. I would have no hesitation in renting from Northbound car rentals whatsoever. 5*.

It is a good car! The weather in Iceland was so bad when we were there, but the car makes us feeling safe on the snowing road. It was a good experience.

We had a good experience with NLCR. The Dacia Duster 4x4 is very suitable for roadtrips in Iceland. Smooth pick-up and drop-off procedure. Only point of improvement: we got a form with notes of existing damage on the car and were asked to sign this form withpout even seeing the car. It would be more appropriate to take a look at the car first, together with an employee of NLCR, and then to sign this form.

Highly recommended. I had issues, probably my fault, with a dead battery and I had very little time to spare. In no time it was sorted and I was on my way to my engagement. Fantastic service, I’m returning in June and will be using Northern Lights again for my trip.

Our flight had 3 hours delay, so I informed the rental company about it. However, as we arrived, there wasn´t anybody to pick us up. After 2 calls and ca 1 hour waiting somebody came to drive us to the car rental place. I chose the rental company because of the price and free GPS. But the GPS didn't worked at all. The guy showed us our car, but he did not check if the GPS was working properly. I had to return it 5 times!!! Every time he gave me a new one, it work for 2 minutes and then it shout down. It was because the adapter he gave us was not working, not the display. But he did not try it with us at all (after he gave us the keys, he had new customers and did not bother to help us). He told me, if we have problem with the GPS, he could offer us some discount as soon we return the car, so I gave up and we used our mobile phones whole time. As soon as we returned the car (ca 1,5 hours) before our flight there was no time to discuss the discount because there were 2 other customers waiting. Nobody told us, that we need to return the car at least 2,5 hours before our flight. Luckily, they arranged pick up for us and for another pair (who had not know about it also) and so we could catch our plane. We had dacia duster and we had no problem with it.

The car was comfortable and drove well, although there was a problem with the GPS system so we had to use our phones and Google Maps in the end.

We chose to rent our car with Northern Lights Car Rental based on a recommendation from another traveler. We would definitely rent from them again. They were prompt to pick us up at the airport, customer service was spot on during the rental itself, and their prices were better than others we had looked at. During our trip to Iceland we drove out to Jokusarlon and experienced some very snowy/icy roads during our trip. However we never had any issues driving.
