Reviews for all companies

My experience with northbound and icerental 4x4 was excellent.

The car rental worked all fine. Pick-up at the airport and drop-off at the airport was good and on time. Good communication before rental period. Just make sure you check the already present dents and scratches and take pictures when picking up the car (as you would do for all rental companies). Insurances are clear and not pushed to take an insurance. The car itself was good enough, a bit an older car with some mileage, but I choose for it on forehand. Overall satisfied, price vs quality. I would rent with them again.

We had an excellent experience even thought the duster we initially rented started to get some issues with the 4wd system. After a quick call and mail they decided it would be fit to replace the car with an even more rugged kia sportsage which proved to be a seriously good car. I would recommend anyone to maybe leave the duster for what it is and go with something a bit more capable (like the sportage)

No stress at all. It was easy to get the car and drive away. Nice friendly staff very helpful. It twas also very simple to return it at the end of our vacation. The car was good and fun to drive. We were really glad to have the Dacia Duster especially one evening when we pulled into our Airbnb long private street (over 200 mt) in the country, south-east of Reykjavik, and found that it was not plowed, and there were about 20cm of snow!! But with the Duster it was a breeze!!! That much snow was nothing for this car. with a different type of car we would have been stuck for sure. I would highly recommend this type of car.

It was a good experience with Lava Car Rental. The service was fine.
The car drives good, but the exterior had a lot of paint damage. It looked like the car was older than 2017, which we ordered. Fortunately no more damage. we like to come again.

Our dented car ran well: it suited its purpose if getting us to Reykjavík and then back to the airport. Would be nice if the people in the office knew what a smile was....maybe their fear of covid-19 has them seeming cold and unable to come around from behind the desk.

If you are going to rent a car in Iceland in March, rent a 4 wd. The Dacia Duster was reasonably priced and reasonably able for the road conditions we encountered, which included about everything. Good little car and a great trip.

The welcoming was rather harsh and stressed but the car was nice and the drop off also was very easy and kind.

We rented the cheapest camper possible and it got us around the ring road no problem during snowy windy march. The guy was helpful and we were sent an email with lots of helpful links as soon as we took the camper.

No issues when handing the car back. Included pick up and drop off at the airport. Hand overs were quick and effortless.

Everything mentioned was included.

Definitely recommend.

The employees gave us very good information about iceland and how to get around in the car.

We had a very good time in Iceland and part of that was thanks to the sturdy car that took us across the island. The pick-up service was a bit unclear, but we were very happy with the service on location, both before and after the journey. The GPS system was a bit outdated and inaccurate, but luckily at all times there was at least one phone with good connection and access to Google Maps.

No problem with Lava Car Rental ; except some details : door of the driver damaged by the wind with the previous driver, and not replaced, then it didn't work properly. Wipers very old, we had to change the one in front of the driver.

It was a big and solid car; it was a bit heavy steering.
We felt save dispite the stormy and snowing weather.

Car rental in Iceland is expensive but this site was by far the cheapest and used an actual Icelandic company. Great service from the pick up to return. The car was excellent. I would recommend this company and will use them again in the future!

We rented a Dacia Dokker camper van from Solstice Campers through Northbound.
We really enjoyed our trip, and we would recommend everyone to book a vehicle through Northbound. They were very helpful and communicative, especially when communication with Solstice Campers was difficult during the Christmas Holidays.

The van was in good shape, although we did have some issues. The first day, the table broke, and the screws were too short to be able to fix it again. Also, the side door kept being stuck, which often gave us some problems when trying to open the door. We mentioned this to Solstice Campers, and they indicated they were already aware of the issue. On the plus side, the reconversion of the car is pretty cool, as you easily switch between a van to sleep in, a van to drive around and a van to sit in and have dinner or relax. Because of the cold and the remote places we stayed, we were very pleased with how comfortable the car was when using it as a seating area...

Měli jsme půjčenou starší Toyotu RAV4 (150000km). Opotřebení karoserie odpovídalo najetým kilometrům. Motor, podvozek i brzdy byly O.K.

je ne suis pas sur de relouer une voiture avec Icerental 4x4 .a la réception de mon véhicule on me certifie au moment de la signature du contrat de location que le plein de carburant est fait !
je prends mon véhicule et je m'aperçois que le plein n'est pas full ! mais étant fatigué du voyage je ne réclame pas la différence.
C'est à la restitution du véhicule que cela ce complique .ayant fait le plein de carburant la veille sur Reykjavik ,le lendemain je me rends à l'endroit de la restitution(50 kilomètres) et là,la personne me réclame le plein(oui je viens de faire 50 kilomètres) et me demande de justifier que je n'avais pas le plein lors de la restitution par une photo (que je n'avais pas bien sur)et me demande de refaire le plein à une station la plus proche ,sauf que se jour là ,le système de carte bancaire ne fonctionné nul part ! on pourrais au avoir le bénéfice du doute ou nous proposer un forfait de 10 euros sur place(pour l'appoint de carburant) pour éviter une perte de temps et de stress avant de prendre l'avion!

Everything about renting with Northern Lights was great. The car was exactly as described and the people were very helpful. The only thing that could be improved is that the check-in and check-out process took a very long time because they only had 1 person working at the time.

We appreciated the simplicity of the formalities before taking the car AND also when delivering it at the end, your reactivity to answer to all our questions on internet.
The car was well adapted to our travel.
Thank you

A representative from the company was waiting for me when my flight landed. 10 minute transfer to pick up the car. Very professional staff made the hire smooth and quick. We found some ice in the original car from cleaning so they changed it immediately. Overall very helpful staff, car was very reliable and safe. They are open 24 hours so returning it in time for an early morning flight was no trouble at all. It takes a little longer than hiring from the airport itself but the lower price makes it well worth it!

The car was clean, both outside and inside, and ready to go when we arrived. The model is ok, just what we expected. But there were problems with the driver's window. It would not close automatically unless you pushed it manually. Also few times, on the road, we experienced a failure signal telling us there was something wrong with cruise control and automatic brake radar. The owner's manual says it should be inspected. We called it in when returning the car. All in all our Suzuki seemed to be heavily used already.
