I would highly recommend the Medium 4!!! The reservation, pick-up and drop off ran quick and efficient. North Tours staff were responsive via phone and email. The RV ran perfectly and was easy to drive…I haven’t driven a manual transmission in a LONG time. There is plenty of room and storage for 4 adults. It was out first time in an RV and they did a great job explaining the various systems and how to use them. It really made the trip special and stress free so we could make the right kind of family memories…not the stressful kind!!!

Everything was great with our experience. The van worked well for what we needed. The amenities were stocked and clean. However our cooler did not work so we had to be careful what to buy for food. Would definitely recommend this company to a friend!

Terrible experience and will not rent from you again. I was charged $200 for something that I did not damage and that was on top of $800 of rental for 5 days. The monsters at MYCAR seem to know very well that I can ask VISA credit card company to reimburse me - and of course their vehicle is fully covered by insurance.

Was a fantastic experience, and a super smooth connection. I don’t normally book things through a third party but sometimes exceptions are the right choice. Would recommend using North Bound.

The car needed service as on the dashboard said from the start. I told them 2x that it doesn’t feel good to get a car with already sign of this. Reaction was don’t worry everything is fine with the car. After more or less 200km the first sign of lekkage tire. Pumped it up fine for a day. Day after same problem. Went to garage and the said not to much to do sins all the tires are worn out unable to repair all the small lekkage in the tire. So pumped it up again until there was a flat tire and we needed to replace it. It did stress me out because we still needed to drive back two days away from the rental office. We also had to turn around our tour because of this. Have to say from the start rental the rental office had never had to give us a car with already to many sign of service repairs needed. So very bad experience from the start.

Hi, I’m very unhappy about Camping Cars. The car has a leak behind (on the rear drive). I was not responsible for that. To be sure that the car won’t be very damage, I brang it to a garage and paid a bill of 7500 isk. The garage wrote on the bill that I am not responsible. When I return the car, Camping cars told me that they would refund me soon. Since, I have no refund, they don’t answer my message. It is not acceptable. Be sure that I will inform other customers on the Camping car site and yours if nothing change. Romain

We liked the car, which took us to many beautiful places without any problems. it has enough space for our luggage. We loved the Apple Carplay and the 4 wheel drive. The only disappointment was its wi-fi, which often lost internet connection. We had a good experience with Mycar. The shuttle service was prompt. The customer service people were friendly. We liked the most was that we could drop the car key at the hotel that we stayed, Konvin Hotel.

Everything was absolutely perfect, aside from a slight delay in the airport pickup (waited for about 30 mins extra). But it really wasn’t an issue for us! Everything else was great, and the price was unbeatable.

Lotus were great with the car rental, everything went smooth and how it should be. The car was also great, the only thing that I would personally change is with hybrid cars to have also the electric part fully charged.

We hired this camper to do the ring road including the highlands at Landmannalaugar for 10 days and it was absolutely perfect! We loved that it was tough and sturdy and got us through all of the river crossings, but also had the ease of showing up to a campsite in the dark and rolling out of the car and into the camper into bed in no time at all. It was absolutely perfect for us two and our teenage son, it actually felt like it was a little bigger than the images which was a nice surprise! Pick up from the airport and drop off of van was smooth and efficient too. Great company and perfect camper for us. Highly recommend them!

The Vehicle was a different Model than what we booked, but is was comparable and good. Two doors were a little difficult to open/close. The window of the right seat could only be closed with the button on the driverside. The Camper was reliable and the heating system worked very well at night (only a little bit loud). Nice was the USB-Charge in the back of the car. Staff was friendly and pick up/drop off was good, too. Had a really nice time with the camper in Iceland.

Great for the f-roads. Definitely cosy for 2 sleeping, but to be expected given the setup with the sink etc on the side. Mattress / bed was comfy though. I do wish that the "leisure battery" could be used to charge things as well, it was limited to the fridge and heater. But overall got us where we wanted to go in relative comfort and the staff at GOCampers were great.

The pickup was scheduled for 11pm, but the pickup showed up almost one hour later. The guy explained that they had the IT difficulty and system down, were not able to check pickup schedule. Since it's already very late, only another couple was on the same shuttle, check out was quick.

The car was awesome! It was a hybrid which I didn’t know about beforehand so we saved a lot of money on gas. The car was the perfect size for us and our luggage and was easy to park. The car was also nice and clean. MYCAR was great with their shuttle service to and from the airport and their helpful information when picking up the car. Would recommend!

The van is a good size to sleep comfortable and the heating for the nights is perfect. It’s a pity that when we picked up the van they forgot to give us the linen,fortunately we had our sleeping bags. I had to ask for the cutelry,they were included in the price. The van was very dirty with some sauce in the car pockets,so we had to stop and clean the van. When we brought the van back they asked me where the linen that they gave us was,I told the man that nobody gave me any linen and I had to ask for the cutelry. He said that the boy that gave me the van was 18 years old and he was a student,and that humans can make mistakes. I don’t think it’s a good answer.

Pneus usagés, mais pas que (portière qui fermait mal, signal lumineux de mal fonction, capot mal fermé, 260000km au compteur...). Nous avons crevé rapidement et ce cas est évidemment non couvert par l'assurance. Au retour, malgré la preuve de pneus trop usagés, il nous a été dit de faire une réclamation par email, sur lequel bien évidemment il nous a été répondu que la crevaison n'était pas prise en charge. Ne pas louer chez ce loueur si vous envisagez de rouler sur des routes F en Islande, si on vous donne une voiture comme la nôtre, vous êtes quasiment certains de crever. A l'inverse, pour une utilisation sur route uniquement, pourquoi pas, mais la sécurité de la voiture laisse à désirer.

Overall experience was very good. Check in, check out process was really easy. Some topics that could be improved: it was difficult to find the right driver when arriving to keflavik airport. We were not aware theg we had to look for the 'ACE' sign. Battery was often low in the morning, even though we didn't have anything connected to it during the night. Internet device had a diffefent name than given to us Thank you, Mr Meszaros and the crew

We were given Nissan instead of Renault in the end. The car was not in the greatest condition, but it was clean and worked well, we had no issues throughout our stay. The car came with sleeping bags, chairs, cooking equipment etc., which was really great. The staff was rather unfriendly and unsupportive, everything seemed to be a problem for them.

My friend and I picked up the van on the 27th at around 10:30 and left the office at around 12 o'clock. The extra pack of insurance was very well explained which made me and my friend consider it and so we bought it. We requested an upgrade for a Mercedes but unfortunately it was not available. When we got to the van that we were given, we were very disappointed and very worried about our comfort (since we were staying with it for 10 days). The employer who took us to the van had no knowledge of how anything works, not being able to explain anything. As we were eager to start our trip, my friend and I concluded that we would be able to figure it out on our own. The first night, when we checked into our camping place, we noticed that there was no way we could block the windows in order to have some privacy. There was only a piece of fabric that we had to tuck in some place. The box with the basic tools for cooking was not in condition: the pots and pans were not adequate, there were no lids, the pots were too big for the camping sized heater and it would constantly fall off. Later in the evening we found out that the heating system would start as normal, but after an hour or two would simply shut down and not turn on again. I called the office on the 28th where I explained the heating system situation. They told me that where I was located had no mechanics available, only in Hoff. So I said that as soon as we arrived there we would call. We arrived very late, so we knew it would make no sense to call. On the 29th, in the morning, we called the office and after an hour the mechanic, called Svenn, arrived and the first thing he said when he saw the van was that he saw the van a couple of days ago and that it needed replacement. He did say that the problem could be resolved temporarily by keeping the gas tank above the "half tank"full. I also took the opportunity to complain about the side door because it wasn't closing properly and the wind was coming through. After that, we left Hoff. We did as we were told and only turned the heating on with a full tank of gas. It worked but only for half of the night. The next night we tried again and the same thing happened (again with the tank always full). We called the office in the morning from Hgalteyri explaining the situation and that we would like to see a mechanic about the heating system, as the nights were really cold and uncomfortable. We did not get any answer. Nobody contacted us. Like we had explained in the office on the first day, we had limited time in Iceland and wanted to make the most of our time there. During the day everything went fine, but in the evenings it was unpleasant and not enjoyable at all because of the cold. We arrived at the office on the 5th of september where we explained the situation. My friend and I were very disappointed with the service provided and the lack of attention given to the problem. Again I would like to express my discomfort and the lack of quality of the van, given the price paid. In total we paid 1844,80 € for 9 nights, making it 205 € per day. At this price we expected more confort, especially at night. I would like to know, given the fact that it was in your knowledge that this van was not in conditions, and that we were fully insured, why we did not get a substitute car. I request some kind of compensation for the very bad and cold nights we had during our stay. Again I would like to give some attention to the equipment in the van. A broom, cloths to clean the van and proper pots and pans are very important and necessary when renting a van. Working curtains are a must.

The motorhome served it's purpose, but it was just "OK". The emergency break on the motorhome did not work at all, which was dangerous when parking in a couple of tourist areas. The grey water drain constantly leaked no matter how we turned/tightened it. We paid for linen for 4 people. We got 4 pillows, 4 blankets, 4 bottom sheets. When we returned it we were told there should have been pillow cases and duvet covers...that would have been nice. None of the latches on the above cupboards worked, and only half of the curtains were there. So like I said, it served it's purpose, got us where we needed, and didn't break down...but the motorhome we had definitely was showing a lot of wear for the money..

This was super easy- pick-up and drop-off was really quick. All staff courteous. We got our Toyota RAV4 and got great mileage on our 7 day stay and trip on Ring Road, etc.. We ran out of time to do more F Road exploring- but Would definitely rent from here again- and having the Full Platinum/Premium insurance was worth the peace of mind and made for a quick car return!

My first experience wasn't that good. the agent at the airport gave me a car that was 250,000 Km old, AC did not work and the car was shaking on highway. Not to mention the Tire pressure light was ON and the agent just asked us to ignore it . i had booked specifically a 2019 car. i had to then drive back half hour after i left the airport to the reykjavik location which was closest in my trip , wait for more than an hour and then get a replacement. i would give you guys 1 start if it wasn't for Jan at the reykjavik location who helped me get a replacement car. I dont trust your agent at the Airport and will advice my friends to be VERY careful dealing with him.

Worst experience I’ve ever had. Finding your shuttle driver was difficult. She was angry with all passengers. The agent pointed out MANY things that were wrong with the car when he gave it to us - multiple warning lights stayed on, dents, torn seats. We had to work on the driver’s door before we could get it to lock because the lock was falling off. The clutch is failing. I brought it back a day early but was refused a refund. NEVER again!

Hello, We are satisfied with the service, however we allow ourselves some comments that can help you improve the service. No sign with our name on arrival at the airport while many other providers the bottom. Vehicle with a lot of shocks on the body, fortunately the return went well. On the other hand, HS windshield wipers at the front was the iron in contact with the glass. We found this defect as a big negligence for a country where it rains daily. Warmly

The car in general is good. Very comfortable, clean, and easy to drive on paved roads. Some points to take into consideration: - The Mitsubishi Multimedia system has some Android Auto issues and often stops working. It's not a big issue and is not a problem that Fara Car Rental could solve, but it's important to mention. - The car is not so appropriate for some roads, and Fara was very clear about that. If you plan to do more off-road and take some bad roads, consider getting a big 4X4. You can go with the Eclipse, but you are taking more risks. About the staff, pick up and drop process, I'm very impressed with how friendly the staff was with us.
