Reviews for all companies
The rental experience was easy. Our flight was delayed 9 hours but we were still met at the airport. The car served our needs well. The price was very inexpensive compared to other rental agencies. Would definitely recommend using them!
We had a great experience with the booking with Icerental 4x4 , picked up from the airport and collected the car OK. The car was great and helpful staff.
Absolutely perfect, great team really appreciated the spirit. Thank you for everything. Hope to come back soon and of course will rent with you again. Have a nice day.
I can highly recommend Northbound and Icerental 4x4.
We booked a Suzuki Vitara and went smooth and well through the pick up and hand in process.
The car was clean and worked well, contributed to a great time in Iceland!
The vehicle was in good shape for having a higher mileage and came with many extras I didn't expect - seat warmers, bluetooth, GPS included. Pick-up at the airport was on time as well as the shuttle back.
I came across Nordic Car Rental while researching different options for renting a 4x4 SUV for 10 days in October 2018. My wife and I were planning to drive Ring Road and wanted four wheel drive just to be safe. I researched every single rental car booking site I could find, probably at least 15-20 different sites or apps. Nordic had BY FAR the best prices. I booked a 4x4 Suzuki Vitara with snow tires and included all available insurance, for $200 less than the cheapest 4x4 SUV (without snow tires or insurance) that I could find. I would absolutely 100% recommend Nordic Car Rental again to anyone and everyone I give suggestions to when traveling to Iceland.

Very good deal, the vehicle was even upgraded at the desk. Friendly and honest staff who gave some good advice. The Icerental site is tucked away and we didn't find it easy to find on the way back. There can be queues in the office, so make sure you leave enough time to drop the vehicle off, though Icerental went out of their way to ensure we caught the flight. Northbound site had very helpful tips on driving in Iceland and a good recommendation on ensuring you buy gravel damage insurance
The staff were great and very helpful, made everything clear and gave us lots of advices on various topics such as cheap fuel, places to visit and roads to avoid etc..
The car was in great conditions and ran very smoothly.
Overall we are very happy with the services provided and would definitely recommend Nordic Car Rental.
Great car. Low battery in remote make remote access a hastle at times.
Hi Runar, in the end the vehicle offered was a Ford C-max, not really what I needed with 6 adults, 5 of whom in their 50's, but your staff were excellent, especially at 5 in the morning and switched to a Toyota Pro ace 8-seater that was perfect for us, exactly what I was hoping for. Perhaps Canadian vehicles are larger and I was not familiar with the European models. Thanks for your great service!!
I warmly recommend Northbound, my islandic experience was great and I could count on their professionalism. I was waited at the airport, and as I had to give back the car at 3am, I was waited also at the office. Everything went perfectly and I could ask councils.
Thanks a lot, I'll rent again next time in Iceland.

Really good prices. Cars are a little older but that doesn’t matter and mechanical condition seemed very good. I was able to pick up from Reykjavík and drop off near airport as I wanted to which not many companies couldn’t offer. Short shuttle offered from airport location to airport itself.
Northbound is a great company to organize your travels. Our rental car was exactly what we needed for our trip anccane at a very economical price.
Really cool company. We waited about 15 min in the arrival hall till the shuttle came to pick us up and bring us to the rental counter of lagoon rentals. For this circumstances we got a free wifi as an upgrade which was a very nice little helper during our stay in iceland. I fully recomment to book your rental through northbound.is due to the good Quality, Service, Communication and the reasonable prices instead of taking a rental from the big companies at the airport where you have to pay a lot of addional fees like for example airport fee. Excellent!
A perfect car to travel through the wild. Easy to book and no hidden fees. The only thing I wasn’t satisfied is the missing CD with navigation, as i had to use my phone as a satnav replacement to travel from A to B.
The 4x4 provided was great. The airport pick up and drop off process was quick without much of hassle.

The Dacia was good to drive for the price, and we found Northbound have the most competitive prices. The customer service was very nice and helpful and made everything so easy! Thanks
The rental experience was very easy. The site allowed me to pick the most suitable vehicle at the best price.
The car was really new and clean. One of the doors had a few marks and we could hear and feel a little bit of air entering. Nothing serious, it didn't affect our trip and everything went totally fine from our pick up on the airport to the last minute.
I would recommend Nordic Car Rental and would give 5 stars if the car was 100%.
Was okay, a bit old and run down, but cheap.
The van was brand new, I think it had less than 100 km on it! Pick up was convenient and turn around time was good, we hit the tarmac at 6:30 am, got our Van and hit the road by 9 am. The young guy who navigated us through the paperwork was helpful and gave us tips about what to expect with weather and road conditions. He gave us some good tips about the vehicle and Iceland in general too. The car was great on gas, especially for doing a lot of mountain and dirt road driving. The wifi was ESSENTIAL, it was usually fast and could handle 3 of us, service wasn't perfect but much better than expected. We hadn't planned much of our trip before arriving. It was easy to look things up on our phones as we drove. We used our phones for navigation as well. The sleeping bags we rented were also brand new, they were rated for -10, our coldest night was -6 and we were all comfortable. The bin with a pot, pan, plates, burner, cleaning supplies etc...
Our experience was very good with Go Campers! The only hiccups were that the water in the van did not work and the wifi often did not work. The van itself was great, no problems. There was one knowledgeable and friendly employee who was helpful.
Staff were friendly and helpful. Unfortunately since it was very busy during check in to pick up our rental camper van the representative assisting us had to take several phone calls while trying to help us. The van was as expected but could have been cleaned a bit better from the last renters.
good experience, were waiting for us when we arrived at the airport, transported us to the pick up point. hire agreement and payments were completed quickly and easily, there was no hold up. the hire price was good. we were encouraged to check and take photos of the car before we set off.
drop off was just as easy...only thing to check is that you have the post code of the drop off point otherwise you are taken into the head office in Reykjavik.
would use this company when visiting again
The car was great, we didn't have any problems. Our car was from Nordic Car Rentals: I thought I had booked an airport pickup but I guess I didn't and had to pay a fee on arrival, so a clearer booking process would be good. Also where to leave the car after hours at the Reykjavik office was unclear and we had to call to clarify.
We were not familiar with the Suzuki
But had no problem with it. It was a bit battered but in the storm that was raging when we arrived maybe it was wise not to have a pristine car.
Excellent...loved the car and pickup was easy
Icerental 4x4 was great. They were easy to work with all the way through. We had an issue with the windshield wipers half way through our trip. I called the office and they told me to have them replaced at the next service station I found. They reimbursed me when we returned the car. Easy.
