"Wonderful experience renting thru Northbound. The whole experience was flawless. Shuttle was already at the airport waiting for us. The pick-up location is around 10 minutes away from the airport and it took us 5 minutes picking the vehicle up."

Northbound were great to book with. Super simple and made it easy to edit our booking. Star rentals were also very good and accommodating! Thank you!!

Rented a camper in Sep 2023

I chose to hire a car with Northbound as our trip in total would be over 3000 km and wanted to select a particular type of car. Northbound were very informative and kept me up to date with hire details and driving tips whilst in Iceland. The people a...t My Car were very professional and friendly and nothing was a problem, a really great experience overall. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Northbound to anybody that would like a timely professional service. Thank you

Rented a 4x4 in Sep 2023

We were very happy with the car and the service from Ring. The car was really new (26.000 km), clean and perfect to explore the whole country without any problems. We can really recommend both the dacia duster, the Ring car rental and booking with no...rthbound! Thanks for everything.
