Reviews for all companies

Everything went nice and quick. The only weak point are the unfortunately worn windscreen wipers. You often need them in Iceland. It would also be very nice to get some tips before about driving on snow, ice or through storms in winter.

Take pictures from all damages so you can show them after the trip, the company is fine after seeing the pictures even if they didn't appear in the damage protocol before.

I loved the camper! It was nice and cozy, and perfect for one person to sleep in (two of you’re both short and don’t mind getting cuddly!) I was travelling alone, so it was small enough that I could keep it warm at night. The only thing I found is that you need to let the camper heat up with the heater while the bed is still in “couch mode”, since the vent is underneath the bed and the heat gets trapped down there. Mind you, I went in February, so if you go in warmer months it shouldn’t be a problem. Anyways, everything was great! I loved this vehicle.

The car handled very well and seemed to do well in the snow. I would recommend making sure there is a snow/ice scraper in the car, though. The WiFi unit was a great thing! The customer service was excellent with both pick up and drop off.

Traveled to Iceland in Feb 2020 and rented a 2017 Dacia Duster

I went to Iceland with a group of friends on February and we choose a Suzuki Vitara as our car.
I really liked the car, which was very nice to drive and provided us a great trip.
The shuttle offered by Northern Light was punctual and everything went right.
I though the price of the car was strongly worthwhile and I would recommend both the car and the company.

Great experience. Rented a 2-year-old Duster which had some wear and tear. The staff walked me around the car and had noted every little ding you could possibly see on the inspection sheet. It snowed for most of the trip and the car went everywhere we wanted to go due to being equipped with studded tires and 4x4. I am very pleased with the entire experience.

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.

We were meet at the airport and taken to the car rental place promptly. After signing the necessary documents we were on our way. Staff were friendly and polite and I am glad we had snow tyres! The Dacia was clean and had ample enough room for 3 people with their luggage.

Never had a Duster before. Good car, which was perfect for our drives/tours.

Only one point was disappointing. We needed two times jumper cables to restart the car. Luckily we always found friendly locals to help. Was the battery aged and not strong enough anymore to withstand the cold? All potential power users were switched off carefully every time.

Robust and safe car for Iceland in the winter with snow.

Traveled to Iceland in Feb 2020 and rented a 2011 Suzuki Grand Vitara

The experience was quite alright. The time spent to pick up and return the car is as per usual. Friendly staff willing to answer all your questions. The car we`ve rented had 2 issues I did report at the end. The battery of the remote control was completely dead and had to open the car manually and the brakes at the end of the journey made a funny noise. I highly recommend using Northbound and I will definitely use it again.

Traveled to Iceland in Feb 2020 and rented a 2011 Suzuki Grand Vitara

The car I rented was a Dacia Duster. It was a great vehicle for my trip to the frozen North of Iceland in February 2020. The car was in a good condition and I haven´t had any mechanical problems with it what so ever. I would most likely hire a car here again, if I´ll return to Iceland.

Excellent vehicle , great diesel engine, roomy and comfortable, served us well in very wintery conditions.

Jakub

Traveled to Iceland in Feb 2020 and rented a 2017 Dacia Duster

It was fine albeit an older model with some 176k kms on the clock. This made its condition harder to assess although it was agreed at return that it was the same as at issue. I am awaiting the return of my deposit as I write.

The staff at Northern Lights were professional and friendly. The Dacia Duster proved itself well in some really challenging driving conditions. I would recommend your company for those traveling to Iceland.

The vitara 4x4 is a great car for Icelandic roads during the winter, super reliable and comfortable, the one we got had seen some abuse but held up perfectly.
Great pickup service and drop off at the airport and very helpful staff at the office.
