Review from a customer
All was great. If I come back to Iceland I will use northbound again without any doubt.• Ines • 26. Apr 2017 • Rented a Toyota Auris from Orange Car Rental in April 2017
Excellent service....pick up and drop off .....gas discount coupon...maps....etc. And some good tips on where to drive.......we might have missed a shore drive or two had we not had such good advice at the Orange counter from the staff.Cameron • 12.

We had an awesome time in Iceland and our car was superb, the staff at the rental office were extremely helpful and efficient. I will definitely use Northbound and Orange car rental on my next trip and would highly recommend them to anyone. Pick up and drop off couldn't have been easier.Nicola • 15.

Very nice experience. People were very friendly and helpfull.
The service was very fast and easy.
The car was correct.
Everything went great - easy to pick up the car and great service from Orange (car was actually a Dacia Duster, but that was good). Northbound made it easy to discover available cars and offers in Iceland.Julian • 15. Feb 2018 Rented a Suzuki Vitara from Orange Car Rental in February 2018
Experience was good, however note should be added to the arrival instructions to guide people to look for the meeting point sign and wait for the driver who arrives at 10 minute intervals to take them to office. I would also suggest a good clear map showing the office in relation to the main highway. Had to use google maps top find the place on return. Apart from that very happy with the car and service, and guidance given at the start with warnings about what to expect with the weather and how to guard against it. Would recommend your company to friends.Roderick • 25. Jan 2018 Rented a Suzuki Vitara from Orange Car Rental in January 2018
The car and service via Orange Car was great. We were picked up promptly at the airport and to our rental car within under 30 minutes. The staff at Orange walked us through all the protocols very quickly and we were on our way. Upon dropping the car off, the check-in was seamless and again the staff assisted with transferring bags and ensuring the rental was in proper order. We were able to drop the car off and be transported to the airport in less than 20 minutes, I highly recommend the Northbound for a rental company, it was a lot faster and more convenient than Euro Car and Hertz who I have used in the past.Anthony • 21.

The shuttle service picked us up at the airport and drove us to the office (Hasso). After the normal check in pecedure, we received the keys to a Nissan Quashqai. The car was not suitable for f-roads but very comfy (since we haven't planned to go to the highlands that was ok). We had minor problems with the car, which has no effect on driving. All in all it was a great experience and I can highly recommend northbound!Hung • 17. Jan 2018 Rented a Suzuki Vitara from Orange Car Rental in January 2018
Very short wait at the airport when we arrived, the rental process was very smooth and we were given a car which was of top quality (exactly as described and perfect snow tires).
The returns process was as easy, they even offered a hot drink while you waited for the car to be checked over, it only took 5 mins for the car to be checked over too.
I received a great service and I would rent again upon my return to Iceland.
The service was excellent, very friendly and fast. The pick up was right on time and we were in and out very quickly when we dropped off the car. Great experience.Scott • 07. Jan 2018 Rented a Toyota RAV4 from Orange Car Rental in December 2017
Generally, my experience with Orange was good. Due to a medical emergency, we had to cut our trip short, and still got charged for the full amount of the original rental period. Not happy about having to pay for a week I didn't use and where they could re-rent the car.Milton • 17. Sep 2017 Rented a Suzuki Vitara from Orange Car Rental in August 2017
Everything was perfect! The Jimny was grown up to a Toyota Rav 4. I asked for a free GPS - an Orange Car gave it to me! The guy who brought us the car to the hotel was very very friendly an gave us very helpful tips about iceland. My wife an me - we both were positive surprised! Thank you.Helmut • 15.

My experience was very good. Easy and very qualified pick up at the airport and excellent assistance and advisor regarding Iceland driving policies and roads.
Car was clean and in good conditions.
Great customer service. We rented from Orange for a period of one week. I had signed up for the ( Gold ) Gold insurance (included SCDW, GP, TP, TI ) and collision insurance to avoid any hassle during the trip. We missed checking the headlights and tail lights during the initial walkthrough. A day into the trip after being constantly flashed at by incoming traffic, we realized the problem. The rental company drove up to our rental home and replaced the car with another Micra. This did cost us half day of tour time for the entire process(call, schedule, swap). The inevitables happen, so make sure you check everything internally as well before you leave the rental place. i had incorrectly reserved the car until 3 am the morning of departure instead of 3 pm that day. The manager worked with me to give me a good price for the extra time. Overall I would recommend this business. They are a small team driven to keep customers happy.Veena • 05.

We had a great experience! Everything went just as explained. The young man who picked us up at the airport was very nice and knowledgeable. We had no issues with the car and were even given a discount to use for gas. Would most definitely rent here again.Joseph • 30. Jul 2017 Rented a Nissan Micra from Orange Car Rental in July 2017
Excellent service and responsiveness from Orange Car, including prompt pick-up and drop-off at KEF Airport and assistance with the GPS and suggested touring routes.Maureen • 29. Jul 2017 Rented a Nissan Micra from Orange Car Rental in July 2017
Our rental was not available when we arrived due to high demand. However Orange fixed it before we even arrived by getting us a van from another company, ProCar. The Orange driver met us at the airport promptly on time and took us to ProCar and ensured that everything was taken care of. The van we got was fantastic and the service was perfect.Eli • 23.

Orange Car Rental is amazing. We were greeted at the airport with no wait. Once we were shuttled to the rental car place we were helped by a gentleman who was friendly and very helpful. He gave us a map and highlighted places to go and even wrote down places to visit and eat. We will definitely be renting from them again in the future!Brandenn • 18.

For my first time ever renting a car, I couldn't have asked for a better experience. Booking was easy, I didn't have any issues finding a rep at the airport upon arrival and it was easy to add a GPS to my existing booking (get the GPS, you'll thank yourself later). I didn't have any issues with the car and I was advised in advance about speed cameras in towns. I was given a few maps and suggestions of landmarks to visit, including some that I wasn't aware of. I would definitely rent with Northbound again and would suggest it to any friends visiting IcelandKristina • 08. May 2017 Rented a Nissan Micra from Orange Car Rental in May 2017
It was great! The man picking us up was very friendly and on time! The rest of the people at the location were also very kind! We also got a ride back to the airport at whatever time we wanted which was a great plus as well.Kirsten • 16. Jan 2017 Rented a Nissan Micra from Orange Car Rental in January 2017
Everything was great and we recommend the Orange car rental.Ajida • 19. Dec 2016 Rented a Toyota Yaris from Orange Car Rental in December 2016
Fantastic experience. We landed early in the morning and had a very friendly gentleman pick us up from the airport to drive us to the office. Check in was a breeze and we were off in no time. Car was clean and in good shape, brand new studded winters on it. Friendly staff, offered that we could call anytime for help or tips about what to see, never did but the offer was very nice.Lenka • 28.

Really great! I had made an error filling in the web-based form for arranging a car rental, but this was very quickly fixed by a simple phone call. It worked out beautifully. I enthusiastically recommend Northbound. I will use them in future.Richard • 18. Nov 2016 Rented a Nissan Micra from Orange Car Rental in November 2016

All worked well, thank you. Will use Orange Car Rental again. Nice to be picked up at KEF by OCR, escape busy airport, deal with car rental in town of Keflavik. Great welcome to Iceland.Duncan • 23. Aug 2016 Rented a Nissan Micra from Orange Car Rental in August 2016
Great company to deal with & very helpful. We did a lot of research before booking with northbound as we had heard some horror stories about car rental in Iceland. All our emails were answered promptly before we left home & this put us at ease, our car was delivered to the hotel at the time specified & service was friendly & efficient. Big thumbs up!Garry • 12.

No issues with rental. Dacia was substituted for Suzuki, but was fine and had a nice nav system. Return was quick, even though a lot of people returning at the same time.Gregory • 01. Feb 2018 Rented a Suzuki Vitara from Orange Car Rental in January 2018
They gave me a RAV 4 instead of the Suzuki Vitara , which is also a great car. I was attended fast once in their place. Pick up from the airport was late , we waited about 30 minutes to be picked up. General experience was very good , delivery of the car was very fast and easy.Gustavo • 23. Jan 2018 Rented a Suzuki Vitara from Orange Car Rental in January 2018
All very good. Collection at the airport and transfer to their office 5 mins away. Clear handover from a friendly team. Car good and more than enough to travel around Iceland for 2 people. Little hiccup at the end as the office had moved and the sign was a little confusing but all sorted and transferred to the airport with plenty of time to check in. Didn't go off the main roads but who would in a Yaris.Steve • 15. Sep 2017 Rented a Toyota Yaris from Orange Car Rental in September 2017
The rent was ok but I booked the car drop-off at midnight and they informed me the store closes at 10pm so I must be there 2h before what I sheduledFábio • 25. Sep 2017 Rented a Nissan Micra from Orange Car Rental in September 2017
