Review from a customer
Excellent, easy, affordable.• Richie • 05. Sep 2017 • Rented a Kia Sportage from Lagoon Car Rental in August 2017
The crew is very friendly. When returning cars, we call to change our pick up location a day before and the crew is more than helpful to find us for I have really difficulty when pronounce the road name. We are satisfy on the service northbound provided. Just a small suggestion, the car interior and the seats is a little bit dirty, (With white spot on it...) but it's not big problem, we use tissue to wipe out.Yi-Hsien • 06.

Great car rental agency! They made everything easy and convenient. Having locations both in down and near the airport was extremely helpful. I rented a 4x4 Dacia Duster which ran perfectly the whole trip around the Ring Road.Harvey • 15. Jan 2018 Rented a Dacia Duster from Lagoon Car Rental in January 2018
Your staff was very helpful and clear. They were about 30 mins late to pick us up at the airport, but otherwise walked us through the rental process clearly.
We selected your car rental agency because it listed the option to choose cars that were 4WD. Because we would be there in snowy and icy conditions, we enjoyed browsing a long list of cars you've got categorized as 4WD.
When we got there, we discovered that most of the cars you have listed as 4WD are actually AWD. Some people refer to them as the same, but they are not. You would offer your customers better service if you did not list AWD cars as 4WD. They are not the same.
Lagoon Car Rental was perfect. The pickup from the airport was prompt. Getting the car was easy (with some nice hot coffee to wait). They explained everything nicely and we were on our way. Car was in good condition, no problems at all. The return was prompt and before long we were delivered safely back to the airport. I would recommend them without hesitation. I would recommend using NorthBound too!Alan • 11. Jan 2018 Rented a Suzuki Jimny - Older model from Lagoon Car Rental in December 2017
Our family visited Iceland from the United States in December. We were extremely happy with Lagoon Car Rental. The staff was very friendly, helpful and easy to work with. The Dacia - a brand we had never heard of - was great for a family of four. We took a couple day trips - including Reynisfara and Vik - and it handled great.Scott • 05. Jan 2018 Rented a Dacia Duster - Older model from Lagoon Car Rental in December 2017
It was our first experience with Lagoon cars and with Iceland - but definitely not the last with either. Everything went smoothly and swiftly with Lagoon cars and I would recommend them to my friends. The Dacia Duster was fine - only problem was the gaslid, which was frozen so we had great difficulty opening it to fill the car up with gas/diesel.Helle • 31. Dec 2017 Rented a Dacia Duster from Lagoon Car Rental in December 2017
Everything worked perfectly. Lagoon Car Rental fetched me at the airport and the car pick up was absolutely effortless and quick. Nobody tried to sell me any extra insurance and they didn't block anything on my credit card as some other car rental companies do. It was just great service.
The car was what I expected. It is very small, and I wouldn't recommend it if you're more than 2 people. But it worked really well and I didn't have any issues with it. I do have to say though with really strong winds it gets pushed around quite a bit. I would think that is due to its light weight. You just need to slow down and be a little more careful.
I added a second driver for a couple of days during the trip, which was very easily done over a quick email with Lagoon Car Rental.
Drop off and the ride to the airport was again quick and friendly. They weren't looking for small scratches and the like at all but just for big damage.
Overall an fantastic experience with Lagoon Car Rental. Great and professional service.
We had a wonderful experience with lagoon rental, efficient pick up and run through of all the important details, had a hassle free trip with a reliable car, friendly staff and reassurance of roadside assist. Would definitely use againAmie • 24. Dec 2017 Rented a Suzuki Jimny from Lagoon Car Rental in December 2017
Very good services. They are very friendly. They reminded us the special conditions in Iceland such that we know much clearer what to expect. They also stated clearly what is included in the insurance and what isn't and why not. I felt very comfortable to rent car again from them if I get back to Iceland.Cheuk Lun • 24.

The Kia Picanto from Lagoon was a great little car. It struggled a bit in a snow storm, but most smaller cars did! Lagoon car rental were great. It all went smoothly.Nigel • 20. Dec 2017 Rented a Kia Picanto from Lagoon Car Rental in December 2017
Outstanding rental! I screwed up the dates on the reservation, realised it when me and my family were standing at the airport and called Lagoon Car Rental. 15 min later we were sitting in the bus driving us to our car. No aditional costs. Thanks for everything!Christoph • 19. Dec 2017 Rented a Dacia Duster - Older model from Lagoon Car Rental in December 2017
Excellent experience, especially when I asked to change my car before the holiday. Great speedy communication, would highly recommend.Leah • 06. Dec 2017 Rented a Hyundai i10 from Lagoon Car Rental in November 2017
My experience with Lagoon was outstanding from start to finish. Upon arrival at Keflavik, they were already there waiting for me as promised. Our shuttle driver assisted with luggage and got us quickly to the rental office where another staff member walked us through the rental process thoroughly but didn't oversell the additional insurance coverages or dissuade us from taking pictures of the car; in fact, he encouraged it. The car was essentially new, immaculate, and clearly well cared for. Upon return, we alerted the young lady on duty at the time that we were VERY late for our departing flight.... The shuttle had just left BUT she offered (we accepted of course as we only had 30 minutes before our flight departed) to take us in the car we were returning. Not only did we make our flight but we didn't need to move the luggage yet again. After having been burned in the past with other rental car companies, I can't say enough about how above board Lagoon Car Rental operates and how well they treat their customers. I only wish I remembered everyone's names to publically praise them!Robert • 29. Nov 2017 Rented a Nissan Qashqai from Lagoon Car Rental in November 2017
Our rental experience through Lagoon could not have gone much smoother. We arrived earlier in the morning and our shuttle was earlier as well. It took a minute to find them among all the other companies. The car was in great condition with good winter tires. Previous dings and scratches were well marked and they even gave us a flash light to assist us while we verified the condition of the car. We choose to use our own insurance through our credit card and there was no hassles with that as well. The car performed perfectly and when we returned the car it was only a five minute shuttle back to the airport. One note - make sure you have some form of insurance. The weather changes constantly and I feel that with the other tourists on the roads your chances of an incident is high. 5 stars for Lagoon.Clinton • 26. Nov 2017 Rented a Subaru Outback Diesel from Lagoon Car Rental in November 2017
Excellent from start to finish. The man who collected us from the airport was friendly and welcoming. Our chosen vehicle was upgraded at no extra cost and the Kia Sportage we got was brand new and fantastic. The vehicle collection was straightforward, efficient and completed quickly. We would definitely use Blue Lagoon/ Nortbound next time we visit beautiful Iceland and recommend to any family/friends thinking about hiring a vehicle.Harriet • 25. Nov 2017 Rented a Renault Kadjar from Lagoon Car Rental in October 2017
I got a good deal on a great reliable car from Northbound. I highly recommend this Northbound for the car rentals.Abhishek • 25. Nov 2017 Rented a Suzuki Jimny - Older model from Lagoon Car Rental in November 2017
I rented a Kio Rio (diesel) with Blue Lagoon Car Rentals through Northbound and found the process seamless. The metacrawl data that the site provided helped find a lot of options and I was able to make the right choice for me and my trip.Peter • 21. Nov 2017 Rented a Hyundai i10 from Lagoon Car Rental in November 2017
The Lagoon Car Rental is spectacular . The staff are very friendly and helpful . The advice to take extra insurance coverage is sound and reasonable . Even though we did not get the car Hyundai i20 we got an equivalent car -Renault Clio (Diesel) . The rental rate is reasonable for such car . The extra service such as picking us up and drop them by off at the airport made everything so convenient to us especially this was our first time travelling to Iceland . I love Iceland very much and also the people of Iceland . The country is cold but the people are warm and friendly .Tan • 09. Nov 2017 Rented a Hyundai i20 from Lagoon Car Rental in November 2017
Excellent - the rental car was extremely clean with very low mileage and came standard with winter tires, which gave us peace of mind driving around the island.Derek • 08. Nov 2017 Rented a Hyundai i20 from Lagoon Car Rental in October 2017
Our trip was awesome and the car worked very well. Even though the socket for GPS Navigator does not work, they gave us unlimited Wi-Fi router instead which is more convenient for us since we are familiar with Google Maps. We are very happy with the service and I would like to recommend this car rental company to my friends if they are going to Iceland.Suwan • 30. Oct 2017 Rented a Toyota Land Cruiser from Lagoon Car Rental in October 2017
We hired a Subaru 4WD for 10 days. Great service picked up from our accomodation & dropped off at the airport. No issues with the car, no issues with billing. Drama free.Karen • 28. Oct 2017 Rented a Subaru XV from Lagoon Car Rental in October 2017
Good firm, friendly and the car was really nice. We had a better car because the one we booked was not out of service.Jeremie • 27. Oct 2017 Rented a Suzuki Jimny from Lagoon Car Rental in October 2017
The experience was great. We did not have to wait at all to get picked up or driven back to the airport - which was better than expected. All reps were very helpful and friendly. I would highly recommend this company!Courtney • 23. Oct 2017 Rented a Hyundai i20 from Lagoon Car Rental in October 2017
We had a great experience with Northbound. We were picked up at our hotel on time and the agent was helpful in showing us various details on the car. She carefully inspected the car with us and gave us the needed information if we needed to get in touch with the company. Returning the car to the airport was a plus and it went smoothly.Harry Ralph • 21. Oct 2017 Rented a Hyundai H1 from Lagoon Car Rental in October 2017
My experience with Lagoon Car Rental was absolutely perfect. Everything went well. After arrival to the Keflavik airport, employee of Lagoon was waiting at arrival hall. In the office there was smiling girl. She showed me a car and shortly I was on the way from Keflavik. I am very satisfied and recommend Northboound and Lagoon Car Rental.Martin • 20. Oct 2017 Rented a Kia Rio from Lagoon Car Rental in October 2017
First trip to Iceland therefore first experience with Northbound.
Everything was excellent.
We were greeted on arrival at the airport and transferred immediately to the office where the registration process was easy. The car was ready and was exactly what we needed.
On return, we had a very early flight but the staff were ready for us and again the process was quick and easy and we were transferred back to the airport with the minimum delay.
We had a wonderful experience renting with Lagoon Car Rental! They were so kind to provide needed transportation to pick up and drop off (and even back to the airport so we could exchange some money.) The employees were welcoming, kind and understanding. The car was VERY clean and ran wonderfully! We would absolutely recommend Lagoon to future friends!Margaret • 17. Oct 2017 Rented a Volkswagen Caddy Camper from Lagoon Car Rental in September 2017
Great experience overall. Good car, clean and no issues over the 1800km driven in a week. Very welcoming people at reception.Gregory • 16. Oct 2017 Rented a VW Golf from Lagoon Car Rental in October 2017
I was hoping to have a smooth rental experience for my trip in Iceland, and that's exactly what I got with Lagoon! Super easy-going, no-nonsense, hassle-free car rental experience. Really glad I went with them. I would gladly use them again.Collin • 16. Oct 2017 Rented a Hyundai i20 from Lagoon Car Rental in September 2017
Everything went well and all services worked fluently with Northbound and Lagoon car rent. It was nice that I got discount for booking earlier and also had to pay most of the cost in the renting place.Mihkel • 15. Oct 2017 Rented a Dacia Logan from Lagoon Car Rental in October 2017
The staff in the Keflavik office were exceptionally helpful and very polite. We’re quite happy with the service we received. The Dacia Logan was very comfortable to drive and suited our needs perfectly. The one issue we ran into was that the beeps and dashboard notifications were not easily understood. So it wasn’t always clear what issue a light is sound related to. Other than that, everything was wonderful.Mike • 11. Oct 2017 Rented a Dacia Logan from Lagoon Car Rental in September 2017
Everything was perfect! The staff is friendly, the car in great condition. I would definitely use their service again and will recommend it to my friends!Tomas • 09. Oct 2017 Rented a Hyundai i20 from Lagoon Car Rental in October 2017
We have an excellent experience renting with the Blue Lagoon company. We were picked up at the airport terminal, short drive to the office, and all was quickly done, they nicely helped us to find a camp site as it was already late at night. Our camper was great, clean, and only 3 month old. We had a wonderful experience, and can't wait to come back :) the staff was nice and friendly, and professional. We recommend.Veronique • 03.

Very good' unfortunately the izuzu had a fault on collection. But Lagoon car rental staff were great and replaced it with a Toyota land cruiser straight away and gave us a discount too!. Best car ever for all the fords we crossed,. As even route 1 had been closed by heavy rain. Thank you.Lyn • 03. Oct 2017 Rented a Isuzu D-MAX from Lagoon Car Rental in September 2017
Friendly and Professional staff that provided us With a great experience overall. The car was Perfect for our needs, but you might want to bring an extra blanket for the colder days. During Our last day, we noticed the Olis discount chip on the keychain - not a big issue - but knowing about it would have gotten us some discount gas and free coffees along the 2700km trip! Be sure to inform future adventurers :)Bjørn • 02. Oct 2017 Rented a Volkswagen Caddy Camper from Lagoon Car Rental in September 2017
We are satisfied, everything went just as we had reserved. The car was good and the personal in Lagoon Car were nice and helpful.Erik • 29. Sep 2017 Rented a Kia Sportage from Lagoon Car Rental in September 2017
Overall Lagoon car rental was a good choise, the possibility to report any problem directly by email with a really fast response was a big plus in our journey. After we got a flat tire the support found us a Service at one of our waipoints/stops in Iceland so we could get it repaired. The Duster was also a good car for the 4x4 F Roads, we didnt got a single issue when driving the F roads. the Flat tire we got was on a one way bridge not on the F roads. I didnt had a tire protection (insurrance) but next time I visit Iceland I will definitely get one.
And they even have a shuttle from the Airport and back.
We rented the VW Caddy with Lagoon Car Rental and it was an excellent experience in every possible way. The car was great, spacious and confortable for sleeping. It was ready when we got to the shop. Everything smooth and easy. The stuff of Lagoon Car rental is friendly and helpful. Absolutely recommended.Ezequiel • 28. Sep 2017 Rented a Volkswagen Caddy Camper from Lagoon Car Rental in September 2017
Alquilamos una furgoneta para dar la vuelta a Islandia ya que éramos ocho y nuestra experiencia con lagoon car rental fue bastante buena .El servicio muy profesional , chicos estupendos , te recogen cuando llegas al país y te llevan al aeropuerto una vez el vehículo devuelto.
Los vehículos son nuevos y los precios muy competitivos pero lo que mas me sorprendió es que no te retienen un deposito en la tarjeta lo que viene muy bien si viajes con un presupuesto .
En general todo muy bien y muy profesional .
Very good experience, nice people at Lagoon Car Rental, very helpful and friendly. We had a good car and also the equipment fitted perfectly for going camping.Isabelle • 25. Sep 2017 Rented a Volkswagen Caddy Camper from Lagoon Car Rental in September 2017

Fantastic Experience! The service was great and the car was spotless. All our questions were answered quickly and professionally by the staff. We would suggest however that you include a warning or note that when on certain F-Roads, you may encounter river crossings, and whether the car is built to handle them.Philip • 22.

We had a fantastic experience and customer service. We will come back next year and recommend to friends and contacts.Chloe • 22. Sep 2017 Rented a Renault Trafic from Lagoon Car Rental in September 2017
The whole renting - collecting an returning the car - was a straightforward process, the staff was friendly and the instant lift to and from the airport contributed to a succesful trip.Gordon • 20. Sep 2017 Rented a Renault Clio from Lagoon Car Rental in September 2017
Hassle-free. Collected from airport without any issues.
Good service. Returned vehicle without any issues.
Many thanks to Lagoon!!
The Volkswagen camper minivan was great. The bedding was clean and warm. The kitchen supplies were good.. I would recommend a small camping coffee pot. There is very little signage in Iceland and I would recommend when a person leaves the rental office they are given directions back to the building. It took us a long time to find it and had to stop many times. There is no sign on the front of the building either to say Lagoon. That was also confusing that we booked through North ould yet the car was with Lagoon. I think a better explanation of that in literature would also be helpful.Claudia • 17. Sep 2017 Rented a Volkswagen Caddy Camper from Lagoon Car Rental in September 2017
We totally enjoyed our experienced with Nothbound and won't hesitate to do business with them again. We had a few questions before our arrival and all of them were answered By email very quickly.
Thank you for your great service and see you next year!!!

Amazing service, great staff, email responses within the hour always. Also loved the car and the facilities! Great new car, and all the tools we needed to cook and enjoy etc.Gianna • 14. Sep 2017 Rented a Volkswagen Caddy Camper from Lagoon Car Rental in September 2017
Everything went very well. They picked us up from the airport and also gave us a ride somewhere when we gave back the car. The car was very well equipped (cooking gear) and very new. We were very happy to have rented the car there.Lara • 11. Sep 2017 Rented a Volkswagen Caddy Camper from Lagoon Car Rental in August 2017
Booking this car through Northbound was very simple and transparant. Paid a small amount in advance, which was helpful. A very friendly girl from Lagoon Car picked us up at the airport. Within 15 minutes everything was cleared and we could leave with the car. One week and 1800 kilometers later we returned it, they checked the car and after 15 minutes they drove us back to the airport. I can really recommend Lagoon Rental! They are very easy-going and friendly.
Toon from Belgium.
The whole rental went very well, no issues. The car was basically new and it was greatly fitting our needs (road trip around the whole island). Originally we though about combining sleeping in the car with hotels but finally the car was comfortable enough for the whole week. Also the camping equipment we ordered on top was new and working. The only little downside was that no one was waiting for us at the airport after arrival (as promised) however a quick call helped, the guy was there in 5 min. Overall a great experience with this company.Miron • 10. Sep 2017 Rented a Volkswagen Caddy Camper from Lagoon Car Rental in September 2017
Lagoon is an excellent Car Rental Company that tries to accommodate all your needs.
We wanted an early morning pick up and drop off late evening. They were able to serve clients 24 hrs a day.
Perfect car rental! Everything worked out like it should be. Lagoon Car Rental even helped me to take only the insurances I really need. I was planning to take the sand and ash protection, which isn't necessary when you don't go south. Other companies would've sold every insurance they could.Tom • 07. Sep 2017 Rented a Suzuki Jimny - Older model from Lagoon Car Rental in August 2017
Booking with Northbound was probably one of the best decisions we made for this trip. Once we booked, we received the Iceland 101 ebook which had some useful tips as it was our first time to Iceland. We walked in expecting a Hyundai i20 but was pleasantly surprised with a Renault Talisman which took diesel. Pick up and drop off was very easy and the staff at Lagoon Car Rental did not push any insurance plans. The car was a fun drive and even came with a seat massage for the driver. I would not hesitate to book again with Northbound and/or recommend to friends and family!Caitlin • 06. Sep 2017 Rented a Hyundai i20 from Lagoon Car Rental in August 2017
We were really happy with our car rental experience from Lagoon. The friendly staffer picked us up at 6 am in a driving wind and rain storm. Our car was very clean and handeled nicely. The return process was also very smooth. We were driven back to the airport with sunshine and happy memories of our trip.
I would definitely recommend Northbound/Lagoon car rental to all travelers. The rental system seemed complicated when planning our visit but booking online with Northboind was simple and everything went smoothly. The staffer explained everything regarding driving in Iceland as well as discussion of insurance options which seemed confusing online. We chose the tire and gravel insurance since we planned to drive the ring road. Luckily we never needed them but it was a piece of mind for us. There was a lot of gravel and isolated roadways!
Thank you very much.
Had an excellent experience with Lagoon and booking through Northbound.
Before coming to Iceland, we had various questions, and the live chat was an excellent way to ask questions, and have a dialogue (with Liam) that allowed us to prepare for the trip well (about 3/4 times we engaged with the live chat, and got excellent inside information).
On arrival, it wasn't fully smooth being met by a Lagoon rep, and had to wait a little while to be transferred to their office to pick up the car. But once we got to their offices, the process was quick, and smooth, and we were soon away, with everything (i.e., all the extras) that we ordered. The car itself was great, with everything you needed and designed very well (e.g., Canvas storage compartments, curtains, various nooks and crannies to store things). Overall, this added to the trip, and gave us a great way to explore Iceland. Thank you.
I had a great experience renting a VW camper van from Lagoon! People were extremely friendly and helpful, and we loved the diesel van - good gas mileage and plenty of pep. We'll def be using Lagoon for our next Iceland adventureSpencer • 04. Sep 2017 Rented a Volkswagen Caddy Camper from Lagoon Car Rental in August 2017
Everything was great. They had a Lagoon Car rental sign at the airport. The staff was very friendly, nice and efficient. I will definitely rent here again.Heidi • 03. Sep 2017 Rented a Dacia Duster - Older model from Lagoon Car Rental in August 2017
We had a Dacia Duster.
No worries about taking the car or returning.
Fast transaction, friendly staff.
Car adapted to the tour of the island.
We were taken back to the hotel when we got back from the car without waiting.
Despite the appearance of the car was not good (lot of damaged) and we were afraid to get some warning indicators , the service of lagoon car was highly available on the phone even lately. We could then continue our trip safely. We are then satisfy of this experience in Iceland.Sebastien • 02. Sep 2017 Rented a Dacia Duster - Older model from Lagoon Car Rental in August 2017
Everything went well.
We reached the arrivals hall at Keflavik around 1am and in 5/10 minutes the shuttle came (no need to call, they constantly show up there with a sign) and took us (5min drive) to the office. There was no car from the category we reserved, so we were upgraded do a bigger diesel car (low consumption btw).
No problem whatsoever when returning the car at the office, and again in 5/10 minute there was a shuttle taking as back.
We rented a small car from Lagoon car rental for 7 days, and the people at Lagoon were very helpful, friendly, and professional. We had read many online horror stories about Iceland car rentals in general so we were initially a bit worried. However, the guy working at the check-in desk answered all of our questions, and during the rental car walk-through at the beginning of the rental, he did an extremely thorough job and marked down even very minor scratches that I would normally not mark down. At no time did I feel like Lagoon was trying to take advantage of us or pressure us into buying things we did not need. I felt like Lagoon had our best interests at heart, and the staff also gave great recommendations on places to visit. If I come back to Iceland again, Lagoon would definitely be my first choice for car rentals. Thank you for a great experience in Iceland.Fan-Chung • 30.

Staff were very helpful and the entire process went smoothly. Also had very prompt response when we were unsure about an issue about the campervan. Generally no issues with the campervan. Everything was as expected and more! Cooking utensils were great but stove grill/stand could be changed so that there was direct contact with pot (otherwise it took forever to cook!) Loved that we had airport pickup and dropoff as well.Sherri • 29. Aug 2017 Rented a Volkswagen Caddy Camper from Lagoon Car Rental in August 2017
Fantastic!!! We asked yo change locación of picking the campervan up, they did. And more importantly we had a puncture in the tyre and they solved it very quickly. Everyone was very helpful.

Das Auto war ok und mit niedrigem Kilometerstand. Keinerlei Probleme.
Der Abholdienst vom Flugplatz hat nicht zufriedenstellend funktioniert. Der Fahrer Brachte mich zu zuerst zu Island4x4carrental und bat mich dort auszusteigen. Bis sich die Angelegenheit aufgeklärt hatte, war 1 Stunde meiner Reisezeit vorüber.
Beim Einschecken wurde versucht ein anderes Auto, Subaro Outback, zu offerieren. Das Fahrzeug ist im Prinzip ok, entspricht jedoch nicht meinen Anforderungen an die Sitzhöhe. Es erforderte schon eine gewisse Standhaftigkeit den gemieteten Wagen zu erhalten. Dieser Wagen mußte dann noch hergerichtet werden und es war schon wieder 30 min Meiner Urlaubszeit dahin. Ansonsten war die Abwicklung absolut zufriedenstellend insbesondere die Fahrzeugrückgabe funktionierte einwandfrei. Vielen Dank.

We rented a Hundai i20 from Lagoon Car Rental which was good enough equipped for travelling around northern Iceland. We had no bad surprises so we were satisfied with the car and the company.

Renting with Lagoon Car Rental was a wonderful experience. We had a brand new, very clean VW Caddy Camper that used diesel. The car was in great shape, there were some pillows and linen for the bed, a little tent and vent for the window at night. This vehicle was perfect for two and there was enough space for our bags in the back and underneath. The staff at Lagoon were very professional and fast. Pick up and drop off was on time and fast and check in and check out was also fast and easy. I would most definitely recommend Lagoon Car Rental and look forward to using them next trip! Thanks for everything- it made the trip a lot easier and stress free.Nicole • 18. Aug 2017 Rented a Volkswagen Caddy Camper from Lagoon Car Rental in August 2017
Everything that was promised to us was delivered! Someone met us at airport , just as they said they would. The car we reserved was practically brand new and very clean and ran well. Dropping it off at the location by the cruise terminal worked out great. We are very happy with Lagoon Car Rental. Hope we get to return to Iceland, if we do, Lagoon Car rental will be our choice!Johnny • 16. Aug 2017 Rented a Hyundai Tucson from Lagoon Car Rental in August 2017
Easy, convenient; wonderful to be able to pick up in Reykjavik and drop off in Keflavik or the other way around. Friendly staff, good car. I've used others and prefer Northbound. We shopped around and they were the most affordable for our compact car needs, so it was nice to get quality for less. We do not really mind other inconveniences (for example rude employees or out-of-the-way rental locations) We base our choices on price alone. So again, this was a win-win.Matthew • 12.

The whole process was smooth and generally no problem, except at the time we check in there was a queue so we had to wait maybe around an hour before getting our booking. The car from Lagoon car rental was definitely better than what we expect: it had comfy comforter and pillows, compartments to store our stuff and cover for back door extension which was really useful on bad weather days. The team at Lagoon car rental was also easy to deal with, no fuss and really up front with the costs, insurance cover and other matters. Highly recommend these guys if you need a Caddy Camper!Nur Hana Marlili • 25. Jul 2017 Rented a Volkswagen Caddy Camper from Lagoon Car Rental in July 2017
Northbound was great - very communicative and quick to respond to questions in the lead up to the trip. Lagoon Car Rental was also very helpful; they had made a mistake with my reservation and didn't have my car available, but were quick to fix the situation - much appreciated.James • 20. Jul 2017 Rented a Isuzu D-Max Mountain Camper from Lagoon Car Rental in July 2017
We were offered Subaru XV instead of Forester and additional insurances for free as compensation, which saved us money and we really did not need larger car.
GPS dd not recognize any address in the Reykjanes area and we had to use Google Maps in the cell phone to find Lagoon Car Rentals on our way back to airport. It would be good to have office address as home address or other preset address in the GPS device.
I had a great experience renting a 2017 Hyundai Tucson with Lagoon. The car was practically brand new and fit our group of 4 adults plus luggage easily. It was nice having a 4wd vehicle on some of the roads, particularly in the Westfjords region. Pick up and drop off went smoothly. Northbound quickly responded and fixed my booking when I realized I had entered the wrong times for pick up and drop off, and I was able to confirm directly with Lagoon that they had received an updated booking from Northbound. Great experience all around with both Northbound and Lagoon!Trevor • 11. Jul 2017 Rented a Hyundai Tucson from Lagoon Car Rental in June 2017
My Lagoon Car Rental experience: EXCELLENT! I ended up with a somewhat better car than I reserved, for no extra cost. Their agent met us at the airport as promised. The check-in was at a "easy going pace" when compared to the usual American "in a hurry" style. They offered and quickly explained their insurance options, but did not try to push anything. I had done my homework on insurance (and you should too!), so they went easy on it. They provided a gas discount chip for gas at "Olies" that gave me a 15% discount. Since Iceland has expensive gas, everything helps. Car return was easy, and painless.Best of all Lagoon was HONEST. I had inspected the car before accepted it... its was in great condition, nearly new, and I could not find any damage. On my last day, the sun was fully out, and I noticed a tiny chip in the windshield. Having been so careful, I felt disappointed, but know they would find it too, and I will have to file a claim with my insurance. Oh well. However, when they checked the car, they also double checked their records. It turned out the the tiny chip was already there, and not my problem. Wow! They could have been dishonest with me, and charged me. But they did not. They were honest! You read many horror stories about auto rental issues in Iceland, but based upon my experience, I say: Trust Lagoon. Yes, I will be happy to rent from them again next time. Thank You LagoonJoseph • 09. Jul 2017 Rented a VW Golf from Lagoon Car Rental in July 2017

Great just missing a sponge in the cooking tools and a blue disk for parking. Check out time was too long, especially if you re short on timing with the airplane. Pickup and drop off service was great. Car and all the equipment was great, very low gas consumption.Génika • 18. Jun 2017 Rented a Volkswagen Caddy Camper from Lagoon Car Rental in June 2017

This is a long overdue review. My cousin and I visited Iceland back in September. We rented our Mitsubishi through Lagoon Car Rental and highly recommend this company to other travelers. We had some car trouble (I admit it was not the car/company's fault but ours) and the customer rep went above and beyond to help us out. I cannot thank them enough for their patience and service!Judy • 06. Jun 2017 Rented a Mitsubishi ASX from Lagoon Car Rental in September 2016
We were allocated a Kia Rio car which was wonderful, a 2016 -2 wheel drive model, easy to drive, six gears so fuel efficient, a screen display when reversing, heated seats (lovely on a cold wet morning) and even a heated steering wheel which was very nice in May. Lagoon were wonderful. They met us within 5 minutes of exiting the terminal at KEF and took us to their depot to sort the papers and there was no pressure at all to try and increase the various insurance extras. We dropped the car off the previous night to what we had intended and they drove us and our assorted boots, bags and baggage to the hotel without any fuss. I would certainly recommend and use them again. Please also thank them for the free maps.Gabrielle • 02. Jun 2017 Rented a Hyundai i20 from Lagoon Car Rental in May 2017
Very good, we were picked up at the airport and dropped back off well. The vehicle was a good size for 7 people and for camping gear very happy with the Rental Company. Renault traffic was great, east to drive, clean and comfortable.Matthew • 01. Jun 2017 Rented a Renault Trafic from Lagoon Car Rental in May 2017
It was good. They seem like a small company so I was glad to be connected to them through Northbound. Otherwise I would have never found them. I had a brand new car and no issues with it. There were no issues when returning the car.Cory • 30. May 2017 Rented a Hyundai i20 from Lagoon Car Rental in May 2017

Renting from Northbound was easy from start to finish. We were promptly picked up at the airport and quickly shuttled to our car rental location. We were on the road with our Diesel Kia in no time at all. The car was clean, drove well, and we appreciated the 'wind' tips from our agent. Easy check-in and drive back to airport. You guys rock!!Claudia • 22. May 2017 Rented a Kia Rio Diesel from Lagoon Car Rental in May 2017

The car even came with a gas discount chip on the keys. Highly recommend this company to rent through.Braelyn • 16. May 2017 Rented a Hyundai i20 from Lagoon Car Rental in May 2017
It was fine. Only issue was lack of info on the final confirmation that at the airport I was actually looking for a Lagoon rep and not a northbound rep. I would suggest you make it crystal clear on the documents you send to the customer that you are meeting a Lagoon rep. Also no use putting a phone number or email to contact if no one is going to answer for 3 hours..Al • 16. May 2017 Rented a Dacia Duster from Lagoon Car Rental in May 2017

May 2017 Rented a Skoda Citigo from Lagoon Car Rental in April 2017
Lagoon car rental upgraded us to a Toyota RAV which is a much bigger and nicer car set for the environment, with was super nice! if one advice to people renting: be careful when examining the car for scratches and dents before you drive. it went fine for us, but this way you dont have to worry for being blamed for something you didn't do to the car.Veslemøy • 09. May 2017 Rented a Hyundai i10 from Lagoon Car Rental in May 2017
Booking through Northbound was easy and information of the cars very clear. In addition the prices were very competitive. Everything in the car rental was as agreed. I can definitely recommend Northbound and will use them also next time. Thanks.Päivi • 26. Apr 2017 Rented a Volkswagen Up! from Lagoon Car Rental in April 2017
Although they were short staffed for the holiday, they were still able to make us feel unrushed and gave us great tips for our short adventure. Our Kia Sorrento fit 6 adults easily (we didn't have a lot of luggage) and was so comfortable. We really enjoyed driving around in it and had a very quick and easy check in for the way back. I would totally rent through you again. Thank you!!Grace • 25. Apr 2017 Rented a KIA Sorento 7 seat from Lagoon Car Rental in April 2017
We had a Kia 5 door. Clean a few tiny scratches but really a nice car. Tyres were good. We drove on ice and they worked well.Clean internal and external. Car was waiting and ready for us. Good quick service to pick up and return vehicle. Shuttle service efficient. No surprise costs.Michael • 23. Apr 2017 Rented a Hyundai i20 from Lagoon Car Rental in April 2017
I would recommend this service to everyone, nice brand new car, low price, rental is conveniently nearby Jerks ok and there also are a few shops in the vicinity.
But the manager was a bit pushing too much for additional insurance, but that's how rental works I suppose. This was the first ever I used and it was great experience.
Lagoon car rental had provided a wonderful experience. I m satisfied with their punctuality on the provided timing as late as 1am. Despite having to book a Hyundai Tucson, we got a free upgrade immediately with similar model ( Kia Sportage) when it is unavailable. Their price was also reasonable and the car was very clean tooJavier ,jing You • 11. Apr 2017 Rented a Hyundai Tucson from Lagoon Car Rental in April 2017
Overall experience was great! They picked us up at the airport right on time, drove us to the location which was about a 5 mins drive. Got the car on time, got the one I had reserved. It was clean, comfortable for my crew of 5.Rishi • 03. Apr 2017 Rented a Dacia Logan from Lagoon Car Rental in March 2017
I had an excellent experience with Northbound and Lagoon car rental. They had the best prices I could find and the car I rented was kept in great condition and drove well. Customer service was excellent with pick ups and drop offs from the hotel.
The only improvement would be around a little miscommunication. I didn't realise that Lagoon were a part of Northbound and so I walked past the lady holding the Lagoon Car rental sign and had to email Northbound to get her to come back after I realised and she'd driven away. The only suggestion would be to make that clearer.
Otherwise it was a fantastic experience and will recommend Northbound to others.
Brilliant experience with the company. Collected us on time from our hotel and gave us an automatic upgrade to a 4*4 vehicle which was not expected! No problems, great price and would recommend to anyone.Jonathan • 01. Apr 2017 Rented a Renault Clio from Lagoon Car Rental in March 2017
Fantastic experience from start to finish. Upon calling on our arrival to Keflavik, my friend and I were promptly picked up from the airport and taken to the Lagoon Car Rental office, where our 4x4 sat waiting with winter tires (+ studs), as requested. The paperwork was quickly taken care of, and we were given ample opportunity to inspect the car for prior damage before going on our way. The prices seemed competitive/good for Iceland (the entire country is expensive--be prepared), and we opted for both gravel insurance and general insurance for an additional 24 euros/day. Northbound facilitated the rental procedure online and their website was both user-friendly and very straightforward without surprises. Highly recommend!!Christianne • 23.

The Jimny we booked was broke down so we got freely upgraded to a Dacia duster which was amazing, we got our headlights blown out on our last day, but the blue lagoon got them replaced in just 30 minutes free of charge, and the service was absolutely fantasticMatteo • 17. Mar 2017 Rented a Suzuki Jimny from Lagoon Car Rental in March 2017
The car itself was fantastic and I can not say enough good things about it. However, when we arrived at Lagoon car rental in iceland, they tried to give us a different vehicle than what we reserved, assuring us it was an "upgrade". In no way is a Kia an upgrade over a Subaru. Regardless of if it was an "upgrade" or not, we specifically requested the Subaru Forester, and that is the exact car that we wanted. We even emailed ahead of time to ensure we would have that specific vehicle waiting for us, but it was not. Luckily, another customer was returning a Subaru Forester when we were arguing with the employees about it, so we were able to take that one. It was a diesel model, same as the Kia they tried to give us, and we preferred (and reserved) a gasoline model. Not the end of the world, but still an inconvenience that we were assured would not take place.Scott • 16. Mar 2017 Rented a Subaru Forester from Lagoon Car Rental in March 2017
Very good. Quick pickup from the airport for the short ride to the office. No problems with the Subaru and the return was fast and easy.Stephen • 16. Mar 2017 Rented a Subaru Forester from Lagoon Car Rental in February 2017
Everything was great! After we landed, we were taken from the airport to the office to sign the rental agreement, allowed to check inside and out the car if it's all good (as it was) and off we were for a 950km long journey through Iceland!
Didn't have any problems except we could have wished for a new pair of windshield wipers, but they were fine anyway.
And returning the car took like only a couple of minutes and the employee who was very kind and friendly and drove us to the airport.
Definitely going to choose Northbound when next time visiting Iceland! Hopefully soon and hopefully in a summer! Loved everything about Iceland!
Absolutely fantastic experience with Lagoon. We prebooked with gravel protection, picking up the car was easy and our request for a parcel shelf was sorted out very speedily. The car was perfect for exploring the south coast of Iceland and handled some of the heavier gravelled uneven roads like a dream. Drop off was also extremely easy and efficient. Would recommend to all my friends and family visiting Iceland.Rebecca • 03. Mar 2017 Rented a Dacia Duster from Lagoon Car Rental in February 2017
I had a great experience with Lagoon Car Rental. They picked us up from the airport an drove us to the rental office. The car was great and in a quite good condition. It brought us to our destination and back without any trouble. The rental office in Reykjavik was hard to find, but in the end we found it and they drove us back to the hotel.Luca • 20.

We had a stellar rental experience through northbound, who sourced the car through lagoon car rental. Northbound answered my questions quickly (less than 5 minutes!) and were very accommodating. I researched many rental agencies and they were the most competitive for the large SUV that our group of five adults required.
Lagoon was great and provided quick pick up from the airport, even when our flight arrived an hour later than expected.
Our car was perfect; it fit all five of us and our luggage and supplies perfectly. The car was a newer model with all the bells and whistles; the seat warmers were great!
Flawless overall experience!
I would have no hesitating in recommending Northbound rental to anyone. I was on my Honeymoon in Iceland so I really didn't want any hassle along the way, and I am happy to say my experience with Northbound couldn't have gone any smoother. The staff were very helpful and friendly, the vehicle was immaculate 10/10 ( we rented a 2016 Toyota Land Cruiser - can highly recommend ). In a nut shell this a local company providing a excellent service what more could you ask for :)John • 20. Jan 2017 Rented a Toyota Land Cruiser from Lagoon Car Rental in January 2017

Service was perfect. Collected car in the middle of the night in good condition, no fuss about potential damages when returned in the dark (there were no damages, actually!) or fuel gauge.
Suzuki Jimny was the perfect car for "expeditions" to Askja and Sprengisandur, including river crossings - at medium water level, well understood. Price was ok: 943 EUR for 9 days.
Would recommend the car and the rental service!
Very good service. We were picked up from our Reykjavik hotel and taken to Lagoon's office. Car was in excellent condition and ran very smoothly during the period of our hire. Upon return to the Keflavik rental office, we were taken by a member of staff to our hotel. Overall, an excellent experience.Tg • 26.

We were very satisfied with Lagoon Car Rental's services although their guy were a little late for our appointment. Our original reservation was for them to give us a ride from our hotel to their office and then we picked up our rental car from there, but instead, they drove our car to our hotel to save our trip. It was very thoughtful of them to do that. They patiently helped us to park our car at a good parking spot close to the hotel and also showed us how to use the meter for the parking. I would highly recommend to anybody who wants to have a nice road trip in Iceland!Liching • 16. Sep 2016 Rented a Toyota Land Cruiser from Lagoon Car Rental in August 2016
Amazing! So easy. They didn't push the extra insurance as much as I thought they would, which was refreshing. When we returned the car, they gave it a quick once over and that was that. Super easy. No hidden extra charges. Also very reasonably priced. Would definitely recommend this rental agency.Jessica • 12. Sep 2016 Rented a Hyundai i20 from Lagoon Car Rental in July 2016
We took the bus from downtown to Lagoon rental. Easy and no problem finding the rental place. The Dacia Duster was not available when we were to pickup our rental car. We got an upgrade to a Toyota RAV4 instead which was really good. We drove around Iceland during 4 days and it was amazing. No problems with the car, no problems finding gas stations (thanks for the gas card). We drove mainly on the main roads but also tried some roads that was in not so good condition. When we returned the car we was also offered a lift downtown which was really nice.
We had a great week and can really recommend exploring Iceland. We'll come back!
Lagoon car rental was great. The car we booked wasn't available so we got a free upgrade. It's a lot better driving yourself than going with the tour guides. Thanks.Joel • 22. Aug 2016 Rented a Kia Rio Diesel from Lagoon Car Rental in August 2016
I think Lagoon Car rental service is good though the pick-up have a little delay in the firs day. The car of 2016 Hyundai Tucson(4x4) is new, good performance and spend 12 days with us in Iceland without any problem. I would recommend Lagoon Car rental for everyone who wants to self-driving at Iceland.Chi Li • 18. Aug 2016 Rented a Hyundai Tucson from Lagoon Car Rental in July 2016
Travel in Iceland as always was perfect. The staff with which we met in the Lagoon Car Renthal were impeccably professional and courteous. The girl who gave us the car was extremely accommodating. We were only surprised by the fact that the car we booked a Toyota Land Kryuyser 2016 in result looked much older and had a damage arount all the car. As a result, imagining how much time and effort will take clarify this situation, we have decided to leave this issue not been solved, and picked up the car in the condition that we were ofered.Anatoly • 16.

We booked the car with Lagoon Car Rental through Northbound.is, which is a great website with amazing customer service. We decided to go with the Hyundai i20 since it is cheap and because we wanted to travel a lot on the road, so we needed a car that we wouldn't have to refuel too often (gas is really expensive in Iceland!). The people at Lagoon Car Rental were nice and friendly. The car we had was super clean and fun to drive. We're sure that our experience in Iceland was ten times better because we decided to rent a car!Emilie • 15. Aug 2016 Rented a Hyundai i20 from Lagoon Car Rental in June 2016

Our car ran great and was very clean. Our kids enjoyed the free hot chocolate while we signed our paperwork. I would certainly use them again if I return to Iceland! Getting from the airport to the rental car via the free shuttle was a bit confusing for me as a first timer to Iceland, but the system of 'wait in the airport for a guy who is holding up the right sign' seems to be the norm there, and ultimately it was very easy.Jennifer • 24.

We rented an Isuzu 4 wheel drive with a pop up camper for 9 days. The truck was fantastic...good mileage, comfortable and the clearance made a big difference. The camper was a little quirky at 1st. Seemed like every lock and latch had a mind of it's own. Once we figured them out it was great. The little kitchen was perfect and the heater made several nights quite toasty.
As for the service? They are a great bunch of young people who are very genrous with their time and knowledge. Super willing to work with you. We will recommend them to everyone we know that goes to Iceland.
Everything went perfectly well. Services were awesome, as well as treatment, suggestions, and recommendations by staff. The car was in excellent conditions, as well as the equipment. The only "but" is the sleeping bags which were more like duvets and individuals. It may have been better to have either two separate sleeping bags or one large duvet for two people. Otherwise, everything was perfect.Ricardo • 25. Sep 2017 Rented a Volkswagen Caddy Camper from Lagoon Car Rental in September 2017
Overall it was good! Thanks for your service. The car was running well and we were impressed with the modern road assistant in the car (eye sight tool). But the rear tires we had were a major concern - the threads were so low: almost close to the legal limit! We were afraid of the tire blow-up during our whole trip, which was limited our plan on any rough roads. It was too risk to travel in Iceland using such old tires.
The pick up services were good! But the reception service (when arrived) would be better or show some warm welcome.
Very nice vehicle, the VW van. They were waiting right at airport when I arrived. Drop off also very quick and hassle free. Not the friendliest staff, but not rude. Recommend the wireless hotspotNicholas • 18. Sep 2017 Rented a Volkswagen Caddy Camper from Lagoon Car Rental in September 2017
The expencience was very good. The campervan was very new and easy to drive. The bed very comfortable and the duvets quite warm. The personal (Sebastian) very kind and helpfull.

Thank you Runar and Northbound for an incredible Iceland experience! Overall, our rental with Northbound could not have been better save a few minor hiccups. My girlfriend and I rented a brand new, Automatic VW Caddy to road trip the entire Ring Road for 9 days. Coming from New York City with limited outdoors experience, we were slightly concerned about spending 8 nights in a car, but we could not have been more thrilled. The camper was impeccably clean, and perfectly equipped with organizing compartments, pillows/blankets, magnetic curtains for windows, a state-of-the-art stereo system, and attachable tent. It was the perfect vehicle to explore Iceland's awesome beauty safely and comfortably.
In the weeks leading up to our trip, I contacted Northbound to make many adjustments to our rental including changing add-ons and rental dates, and Runar, the founder, was always extremely responsive and eager to help with any request. He even contacted the renters directly following my trip to see if they had any flexibility in their pick up time to accommodate my date change request. The responsiveness and willingness to help did not go unnoticed and definitely assured us our trip was in good hands.
Upon arrival, Northbound picked us up from our airport hotel and brought us to the rental office to start our trip on schedule. The check-in process was swift but felt slightly rushed. After a brief check for pre-existing damage and document signing, we were sent on our way. It was only until we had already finished our grocery shopping did we realize our added-on cooler was not working properly. Luckily, we were still close enough to the rental office to have them take a better look and replace the malfunctioning extension cord provided. Upon reaching our remote campground and setting up our rented grill that evening, we realized were also not provided the corresponding gas tank for the grill. Again, not a major mishap, but definitely a bit frustrating. Luckily, Northbound was extremely responsive and helpful with correcting this annoyance by providing instructions to purchase a gas tank from a gas station and refunding us for both the tank purchased and the rented grill.
Eight days and no other issues later, we made our way back to the rental office where we sadly returned our camper. We were told the person who checked us in was new and therefore was not familiar with the different cooking devices and their corresponding gas tanks. That morning was also particularly busy for the rental office and therefore resulted in a bit of a sloppy check in. My only advice for both renters and the company moving forward would be to definitely pay close attention to what items you rented along with your camper and ask for a rundown on how to set up those items. Northbound should also provide a checklist to walk the customer through the pick-up process to ensure everything is present, in working order and understood how to set up and use. Other than that, our trip would definitely not have been as incredible as it was without our experience with Northbound.
Last tip: If you're using google maps to locate the Keflavik rental office, the address that is shown is not correct! The rental office is actually about 6 minutes away from the address provided by google. Definitely something to look into.
Thanks again for everything!!
I obviously didn't check the car well enough when i picked it up. The tyres were bald and there was no spare. This resulted in a flat tyre from wear through the steel belts. Luckily we were only 90 minutes out of Reykjavik and the company handled it extremely well. They came out with a spare, then decided out was best to just swap the car out with another they had there. So we actually had a Subaru Forrester for most of the holiday. It performed perfectly and never skipped a beat. The customer service was excellent too. I really was fearful that the flat tyre was going to be a major drama, but it was handled with a minimum of fuss.Matthew • 03. Sep 2017 Rented a Subaru XV from Lagoon Car Rental in August 2017
It was easy to book online. There was a little confusion as to how to get someone to pick us up so when we finally decided we better call they sent someone right away. Friendly and knowledgeable staff.
The car we rented wasn't available because "it was stuck in customs" and we were given an "upgrade" to a car that was smaller. We couldn't fit our luggage in this car so after some discussion with a staff person, he was able to find us a car that turned out to be the car we requested in the first place. We waited while they cleaned it up.
The family we were with had great experience. So although we had trouble initially , the overall experience was good. The young man took care of us and made things right.
Turning in the car was quick and easy.
Our trip was very find. I'm satysfied about the relationship for every necessiy happened with northbound and blue lagoon car rental. By telephone each one I called it was very fiendly and usefull.
The car was great, the service could have been better though. They were 1 hour late at the airport and the staff was not friendly and seemed not to care about their customers.Sebastian • 25. Aug 2017 Rented a Hyundai i20 from Lagoon Car Rental in August 2017
Renting from Lagoon was good. Although I had reserved a Nissan Qasqai, the gave us an Opel Kadjar. It was nice and clean and served its purpose well. When we initially drove off the lot, the car was shimmying and vibrating at around 70km per hour, so I immediately turned around and went back. The guy at the desk was very helpful: he had me pull interest the garage and they power washed the wheel rims and tires both inside and out and whatever volcanic dust/crud had been stuck to the wheel, car sing the imbalance was totally gone and the car drove beautifully for the rest of our 9 days. Very good experience.Peter • 23. Aug 2017 Rented a Nissan Qashqai from Lagoon Car Rental in August 2017
The car was really good and pretty new.
Driving it along Iceland was super easy and good as well. The only issue is that the Cooking Gear didn't come with a cooking pan, so we had to buy it, and it was pretty hard to find some in Reykjavik.
But overall I'm pretty happy.
It was great. Service was delightful and people were friendly. The car was very reliable and no problems. It was a bit hard to go up hills though, as the car would not shift gear very easily when ascending. Also, on the dirt roads, a big rock could be felt through the floor of the car.Jason • 21. Aug 2017 Rented a Kia Rio from Lagoon Car Rental in August 2017
The gal at the pickup in Rejkavick for my mini-van was terrific. The vehicle was brand new so no complaints there outside of the radio not picking up much and the Bluetooth not working with my phone. The dropoff at KEF took more time than it should but the service was great once I got to the front of the line. Lagoon had the best deal for a large enough vehicle for 6 people/David • 21. Aug 2017 Rented a Renault Trafic from Lagoon Car Rental in August 2017
The experience was good all around. It was the car that I have booked "Kia Sportage" so that was great in comparison to other rental intergrators that specify a class.
The cars' interior and exterior was good but not great.
The car's front license plate was missing and they didn't notice ( replaced it with a printed page in the back window) and also a signal light was always turning on "automatic breaking system" failure.
The check-in and check out service was fast. That was a great thing.
The experience was good. Due to the high number of arrivals in Reykjavik we didn't connect with the representative immediately but when we did the rest was easy.Kerry • 15. Jul 2017 Rented a Hyundai i20 from Lagoon Car Rental in July 2017
We received a KIA picanto instead of the Hyundai i10, and the car seemed new and in good order. Everything worked nicely, from the pick up to the drop off. We got the information we needed and we could call at any hours. Everyone tried their best to make any transition smooth, therefore the service was good!Inger Loewoe • 10. Jul 2017 Rented a Hyundai i10 from Lagoon Car Rental in July 2017
General experience was really good. On pick up day there was no sign of them so I called and they got back to me and said they'd be half an hour late - they had to go and pick up a different camper as ours had been returned damaged, they gave us free gravel protection for the inconvenience of having to wait an hour in the end for them to appear - all good! On returning it, again no sign of anyone so I had to call and then wait for them to appear to pick up - no problems. Only bad part of the rental seems to be their inability to be where they are meant to be on time, all else was perfect and easy.Andrew • 02. Jul 2017 Rented a Volkswagen Caddy Camper from Lagoon Car Rental in June 2017
Mostly good. We were originally given a vehicle that required us to go to a service centre because it was very low on oil. The car also showed a number of alerts indicating service was required. After dealing with those issues the new vehicle was excellent. The Lagoon people were excellent.David • 09. Jun 2017 Rented a Subaru Forester from Lagoon Car Rental in May 2017
Hi. In general our trip by your car was amazing. I would only ask you to provide more information regarding driving in Iceland for not experienced drivers as I am. It would be very helpful to listen before booking. In that case I could choose "gravel protection" option for example. Thank you for everything.Stanislav • 09. Jun 2017 Rented a VW Golf from Lagoon Car Rental in May 2017
The car I rented was not available so I was upgraded to Dacia Duster at no extra charge.
This SUV was awesome for driving and my needs as there was 4 of us.
Pick up was quick and getting my vehicle was hassle free and pleasant also quite informative.
I was nervous about getting a windshield chip as they are extra insurance $ and bugs can be the size of birds lol.
Overall my experience with your car rental was a great welcome to my Icelandic adventure.
Our experience was good with Lagoon Car Rental. They were very friendly and helpful. The Duster Diesel held five of us with our luggage in the back. Checking in and out was simple and they gave us a free ride to the airport. Make sure you top off the gas before you get to close to the Car Rental because the gas stations are not right there. Leave extra time to go through the boarding process at the airport since the airport facilities have already been outgrown by the increase demand from tourism. I would use Lagoon Car Rental again.Nathaniel • 07. Jun 2017 Rented a Dacia Logan from Lagoon Car Rental in May 2017
The overall experience was excellent; the airport pickup and dropoff was really convenient. My group ended up needing a larger car after discovering that our original rental didn't have enough trunk space for our baggage...the only issue I had was that the larger car was more expensive than it would have been if we booked it online originally, but that's to be somewhat expected. The car itself worked perfectly; again the experience was positive.Russ • 21. May 2017 Rented a Hyundai i20 from Lagoon Car Rental in May 2017
Appreciated the free upgrade. Pick up and drop off was painless and fairly fast. Pick up location could have been labelled a bit clearer though.Stuart • 16. May 2017 Rented a Kia Picanto from Lagoon Car Rental in May 2017
Ended up renting a Suburu Forester. Good experience overall. Pickup and Drop-off from/to airport service was definitely a plus. Staff was able to clearly explain everything.
Had a small chip on the windshield and still paid €98 for that given the gravel/sand&ash insurances which aren't exactly cheap. The other issue with that is when picking-up the vehicle there were already some known damages (chips) on the windshield. Perhaps the solution to that is to lower the amount (or even eliminate) the out-of-pocket €98 if renting for a long period of duration (because gravel insurance is paid daily). Chipping on the window is a common problem in Iceland.
We were upgraded from VW Up to Nissan Qashqai as they didn't have the Up so pretty happy with that. Satnav we'd booked not available so were given a refund and the wifi dongle (also booked) for free and used our phone maps. Worked fine so would just book wifi if using again. Only hitch was that we'd arranged a pick up of the at 7.00 am but no one had turned up by the time we were being picked up at 8.00 so we had to leave key with reception which meant we couldn't get confirmation there was no damage. Turned out ok when I emailed them but was a slight concern.
Still pleased with the was Northbound organised everything.
No one was waiting to pick us up at the airport,no note or message to explain why. Had to call a couple of times as staff advised they'd be there in 20 mins which turned into 50 mins of waiting. This resulted in us being late for our check in at the hotel and had to pay extra for out of hours check in.
Car quality was okay, we didn't have any problems with that. Car return was quick too.
Also, the car was not renault clio, it was hyundai i20.
Renting a car from Lagoon was very convenient: one of their employees drove the car over to the place we were staying, and at the end of our trip, came by to pick it up. The car itself was fine; it had some difficulty with hills and gravel roads, but overall we had no problems.Rebecca • 16. Sep 2016 Rented a Hyundai i20 from Lagoon Car Rental in August 2016
I had a great experience with Lagoon Car Rental. Not only did they deliver our car straight to our accommodation, but we got a free upgrade. The car was clean and ran well. Only the drop off point at Keflavik airport is a bit difficult to find - they take you to the airport via a shuttle and the drop off is at the beginning of what looks like an industrial estate. There was a small sign (which is very easy to miss) to point you in the right direction. The collection of the car was quick and I was in the airport in no time. Overall, a great experience.Megan • 15. Sep 2016 Rented a Renault Kadjar from Lagoon Car Rental in August 2016
The car was great and suited our needs. When we arrived we had a bit of a wait at the airport but then Sebastian arrived and he was great, chatty and very helpful. Our check in process was quick and easy. However we did pay for Wi-Fi in our car and it did not work properly which I was disappointed with and I tried to discuss with the agents when we got back who didn't seem interested at all. We were then driven to the aiport with a driver who didn't seem interested in talking to us at all and didn't even get out the vehicle when we got to the terminal. I have scored you with a 4/5 not lower simply for Sebastian's hospitality. Otherwise we were disappointed on the return.Jeananne • 14. Dec 2017 Rented a Suzuki Jimny - Older model from Lagoon Car Rental in December 2017
The Suzuki Jimmy had its charms, but I would recomment a slightly more winter proof car for the winter months. Lagoon Car Rental was perfectly fine; we were picked up and dropped off at the Airport.Dorien • 05. Dec 2017 Rented a Suzuki Jimny from Lagoon Car Rental in November 2017
The car and roof tent were great and in peak conditions. The service by the team was a bit lacking since we had to specifically ask for someone to show us how the tent operates because they were going to send us of figuring it out by ourself. They also charged for an automatic which we ordered by gave as manual which to be honest did not even notice until the last day since I am used to manual driving, they gave us a one day discount though in return.Frank • 04. Dec 2017 Rented a Mitsubishi L200 from Lagoon Car Rental in October 2017
Efficient service though somewhat remotely located from the main airport terminal. Experienced difficulty refueling the vehicle at turn-in and was charged in Euros (61.00) at the main office rather than Icelandic Krona. Is this done to increase the exchange rate to Kronas? Vehicle drove well and we experienced no problems.
Our pick up to the rental agency from the domestic airport was a little late despite confirming with Lagoon Car Rental about my flight and arrival time. The procedures at the office was simple, fast, and we were driving our rental probably within 20 minutes of our arrival to the office. The Kia Rio was in great shape, and drove well on the roads (sometimes covered with snow). Returning the car was a little strange. We had a very early flight (7am) from the international airport so when we arrived at the drop-off point around 5am, it seemed there was no one there. Turns out there was employee sleeping in the office (presumably for this kind of situation) who pretty much told me to drive the car to airport with him. He didn't even check the car so I hope I don't get unexpected surprises later on my credit card, because I think we returned the car in the same condition (minus the the effects of the Icelandic weather).Christopher • 28. Nov 2017 Rented a Kia Rio from Lagoon Car Rental in November 2017
The rental process was smooth and easy. Everything was okay but some minor issues with the car started to show up on the second day. However the customer service was good and able to help us to solve the issues. Also we ran into some problem with the road condition and the customer service also helped us. Overall quite happy with the service but would suggest to check the car thoroughly before handing over to the customer. Having issues with the car during the holiday was not fun.Tsok Sam • 22. Nov 2017 Rented a Renault Trafic from Lagoon Car Rental in November 2017
Great experience, excelent service. Did not like the fact the did not explain us that we had a token with gas discount.
I didn't get the car I selected, but was given an equivalent compromise (which was slightly disappointing).
When I completed payment, I was told that damage is quite common and was asked to buy the additional insurance to reduce risk. While it is true that the risk is definitely less, there was little to no reason to actually pay the additional fee. If i was more familiar with the road conditions in Iceland, I would definitely not have taken it!
On hindsight, with the additional cost of the insurance addon it was definitely not the most affordable option out there, which was why I initially decided to go with northbound.
We collected from the airport and brought to the Lagoon Car Rental Office a short journey from Keflavik. The Lagoon staff were helpful and explained everything very well. Our car was very clean and the Kia Sorrento 7 seater was big enough for 6 men and their bags. We took out the extra insurance to reduce the potential claim from 3490 euros to 690. We had an early return flight which require us to be at Lagoon's offices around 4:30AM. When we arrived there was no one there as they were dropping others off at the airport about 10 minutes away. There were 2 other cars arrived while we were waiting and when the Lagoon guy arrived a bit of confusion as to who was first(us!). Once he checked the car he was very fast and told the others he couldn't take everyone so he dropped us first and came back for the others after. The Return wait and drop off took about 20 minutes all told. I should point out that the staff did tell us to allow for 2.5 hours before departure for returning the car. All told a smooth enough experience and I would be happy to use Lagoon again.David • 31. Oct 2017 Rented a KIA Sorento 7 seat from Lagoon Car Rental in October 2017
On the whole my experience with Lagoon car rental was good - the person we met with to sign paperwork and take the car from was not the most friendly or helpful of employees. However the car was in good condition, we had no problems with it and the employees that we signed the car back to were kind, friendly and helpful. Using northbound proved to be smooth and efficient.Shahrezad • 26. Oct 2017 Rented a Suzuki Jimny from Lagoon Car Rental in October 2017
Over all, it is good. However, there are a few points that need to be improved:
- Meeting the staff at air port: I need to call to find your staff
- Pick up the car: I found that the insurance policy I paid did not cover everything as I expected (as I used to experience from other places, the insurance will cover everything), therefore, we need to check the car and some more paper work, which is quite wasting time
- Return the car: I arrived the Lagoon Car Rental office (air port) around 3:00 AM, but there are no staff there (bit the office is opened). I sat and wait for a while but there is no any staff come in. Finally, I need to call to make the staff aware that I was waiting at the office.
The only problem we had was when we arrived, we didn't see a rep at the airport until we emailed them to let them know we where there. But the process after that was simple and easy.Jacqueline • 10. Oct 2017 Rented a Hyundai Tucson from Lagoon Car Rental in September 2017
We had a good experience with Lagoon car rental booked through Northbound. No issues with pick-up/drop-off even though we arrived at 1am. Everything we requested was in the car which was as described and good quality. Very comfortable nights sleep although occasionally cold with no heating system when the engine is off. Overall quite expensive at about £100/day although I understand this is the going rate in Iceland.
Many thanks, Alex.
Good experience, pick up and drop off system was efficient and the kids loved the complimentary hot chocolate in the waiting room. Friendly staff.Guy • 23. Sep 2017 Rented a Dacia Logan from Lagoon Car Rental in September 2017
The camper wasn't ready for us at the agreed time so we had a dalay of four hours t start with. when we got it there were a lot of things wrong with it - the fridge didn't work, the ladder was broken and the underside of the mattress on the bed was sopping wet. However the staff at Lagooontravel were very pleasant and helpful, and gave us a reasonable reduction on the rental price.
Another point worth mentioning is that Northbound offered us a 'comfort kit ' which included bedding. Due to the high cost of this we decided to take all our bedding from Sweden.
This weighed about 15 kg and took up a lot of space. As it turned out bedding was included in Lagoon's deal which would have been good to know in advance!
Car was mostly fine. The headlights on low beam did not work and the wheel ballad was out with the car pulling to the right. Otherwise I was very happy with the car and the friendly helpful staffTrevor • 12. Sep 2017 Rented a Suzuki Jimny - Older model from Lagoon Car Rental in September 2017
Good. Here are my thoughts. I thought that I had rented a gps along with the car but the paper work showed that I had not if my friend didn't bring it up the I would have forgotten. So, while some people might think you're overselling it would have been perceived as a helpful reminder because there's no way we could have managed our travel with a gps. Second, I thought the tires were too worn for driving in a climate with as much rainfall as Iceland. Third, directions to drop off the car at KEF were poor. I think we were told it was across the street from KEF, so that's not really good enough as a foreign traveler I a hurry to catch a flight.Lorence • 04.

In general, I'm quite pleased with how it went with Lagoon Car Rental. We are group of five family adults. I was the one booked the car and three of us,including me, got flight delay for one day. After my email notification, Lagoon was able to let my daughter and her husband. who arrived on time, have the car which was under my name. Really appreciate their flexibility here. The checking in was also smooth. However, there is one thing I noticed that can improve. Upon checking out, the associate could not find the monetary side of the contract in the system. She could not tell how much we paid from the system. She had to asked my daughter to dig out her part of paper contract. Lagoon's system should keep record on everything, including the monetary side. So, this appears to be a deficiency in the rental system.Tse Chih • 30. Aug 2017 Rented a Subaru Outback from Lagoon Car Rental in August 2017
The car was great and new. The prize was fair and it was uncomplicated to rent and bring back the car. Also very good was, that there is a shuttle from and to the airport. The emplyee was very friendly but he could not explain us the car (the 4x4 settings) and how the roof tent works. We had to find it out by ourselfs. He could have told us more about the insurances (self risk, ...). We met a other couple who rent exact the same car from your company and they got cooking stuff and only one box for food, we got two, so the emplyees could be better preprared but all in all it was very uncomplicated and we had a great time with a great car.Fabian Thomas • 18.

We rented a Dacia wagon from Lagoon near the airport for 9 days. Car worked well (recommend diesel as mileage is key when fuel is US$7.50/gallon). We bought the windshield insurance which came in handy as we apparently took some gravel damage. Lagoon is off-airport and we had a wait for pickup, but return was smooth. Staff was professional and there wasn't the dreaded wait at the counter either end.William • 06. Jul 2017 Rented a Dacia Logan from Lagoon Car Rental in June 2017
Young staff who are not hugely enthusiastic, but very quickly and helpfully modified our pick up time when we arrived earlier than expected.

Jun 2017 Rented a Dacia Duster from Lagoon Car Rental in June 2017
In general fine with some limitations:
By pickup they did not know what flight we come with and how many persons, at least the driver who was supposed to pick us up.
We had to wait 40 min to be be picked up from the airport, they were not prepared for so many arrivals.
In spite of confirmation per e-mail, they did not change the car return date.
Our camping kit did not contain any pots or pans so we had to ask them to deliver it on the way.
One car did not have functioning water pump and the cable for electricity connection was missing
I had a fairly pleasant experience.
Only issue I ran into was they had no record of my vehicle rental when I arrived. When they were able to find it, they had given away my 2016 Subaru Forester because of a time conflict. They offered me a Mitsubishi Outlander instead (or I had the option to wait for a returned Subaru to be cleaned).
Besides that, I had an easy experience with the company.
When we arrived at Lagoon Car Rental the informed us that the KIA Sorento that we were suppose to be getting to fit all 7 people in our group had been in an accident. However, they gave us 2 KIA Sportages and an extra GPS for the same price. The only negative was having to pay for double the diesel.Pasco • 18.

It was almost perfect except for 2 little details. We didn't get picked up on time and didn't know how to get in touch with lagoon car rental. We finally asked the airport service desk to call them after a half hour of waiting. Also, when we got there, the Subaru was not available. They gave us a kia instead, and I believe they believed it was an upgrade. The guys were very nice and business like. The car was able to go up the mountains with no problem. All in all it was a good experience and Iceland was beautiful!Brian • 12. Sep 2016 Rented a Subaru Forester from Lagoon Car Rental in August 2016
The Blue Lagoon Car Rental service went very well for the most part. The only issue was that we initially set an 8 AM pick-up time, but for some reason there was some miscommunication and we didn't get picked up until 9 AM (after calling and emailing). Other than that, however, I appreciated the customer service we received. We had no problems with the car and everything else went well.
Another suggestion would be to provide printed directions on how to find the Lagoon Car Rental address near the airport. We got lucky and had Google Maps, but it would have been hard to find if we did not have GPS or did not know that it was actually located in Keflavik instead of at the airport terminal.
All in all, I had a wonderful time in Iceland and appreciate that the car was in good condition and did not have any problems.
Our cooking gear that we had paid for was left out, which turned out to be pretty costly for us. We had a bit of difficulty getting back to the car rental location to return our van since it wasn't with the other rental companies by the airport, so perhaps directions could be provided when picking up the car. All else went well.Stephen • 25. Oct 2017 Rented a Volkswagen Caddy Camper from Lagoon Car Rental in September 2017

The customer service was great, and we very much appreciated the transportation to and from the airport. The car, however, was incredibly small which was less than ideal for such a long trip. I couldn't even sit up straight without hitting the ceiling and I'm only 5'10". I asked for a larger car and they said none were available. Will definitely want to ensure a larger car next time I get a rental abroad.Megan • 11. Sep 2017 Rented a Hyundai i20 from Lagoon Car Rental in August 2017
Overall the experience was alright. The Renault Kadjar we were upgraded to drives well. The only issues we had were a popped tire (which happens out there) and we were able to replace it with the spare, then drive to the nearest mechanic for repair. My travel partner and I didn't think the car we were upgraded to was truly "F-road" ready though as advertised since many locals discouraged us from attempting certain routes with our car. The key card for the vehicle also died with a low battery unexpectedly leaving us unable to start the car. We trekked a few kilometers to a nearby gas station which fortunately carried a replacement battery for the key. And lastly, the Dacia that we were later upgraded from doesn't come with GPS which is why we ordered one as well. We weren't informed that the Kadjar does come with an onboard GPS. Though we were told Lagoon provides a separate GPS anyway for accuracy since the onboard one is less reliable, we didn't know that or have issues with the the onboard GPS while traveling and were frustrated we weren't notified of that when we paid for the second GPS.Adam • 05.

It was a disaster at the beginning, the car we wanted was not available. After 4 hours discussing, we find a reasonable solution...Alejandra • 27. Jul 2017 Rented a Volkswagen Caddy Camper from Lagoon Car Rental in July 2017
It was OK. However when we picked up the car we discovered that there was a built in satnav so took the gps that we had hired back in to the office. The person was very short with me and said that I would still need the gps as the car's wasn't very detailed. So although I had read that others had got a refund I had to take it. Of course we never used it as it the car's was fine. This wasted money. However the shuttle was very efficient at pickup and drop. The car was in good condition but there was no manual for it and this would have been useful to work out how to use cruise control and the windscreen wipers. I probably wouldn't use Lagoon (through Northbound) again or recommend to others.Jennifer • 06. Jul 2017 Rented a VW Golf from Lagoon Car Rental in July 2017
Mixed. At the airport I was given a different car than i rented. Tire pressures were low, there was no scraper for Windows. Then I found out (luckily before I left reykjavik) that one if the headlights was out. So I had to go to the reykjavik office to exchange the car. Good news was that the second car was ok for the rest of the trip.David • 19. Apr 2017 Rented a Subaru Forester from Lagoon Car Rental in April 2017
No, I can't find my Outlander when I arriving. Maybe the car had been lent, and then the receptionist let me choose any car I like in this place. Also, the receptionist is too busy. He have to process the work about rental car and pick up service at same time, just one person in your office. Maybe it is the reason why we waited over one hour at airport. Anyway, very thank you for your help to accomplish my journey.Wen Chi • 19. Mar 2017 Rented a Mitsubishi Outlander from Lagoon Car Rental in March 2017
The car was fabulous. But Lagoon was a bit disappointing. They did not have enough people working so when we arrived at 4:30 in the morning we had to wait for over 90 minutes to get a van to the building where we then had to wait for another hour to get our car.Cheryl • 09. Mar 2017 Rented a Subaru Forester from Lagoon Car Rental in February 2017
My experience with Lagoon Car Rental was mainly positive - the car was clean and in good condition.
The only negative was that when we arrived at the office we were told that we would need to pay 85.000 ISK as a deposit because I didn’t have a credit card (I only have a debit card) I was also told that I would need to pay around £250 extra for an additional insurance policy.
Although this may have been stated on the website, it wasn’t made clear. Even if he prices may be higher, it is better to be upfront and honest than to mislead or hide information from the customer. Another customer in the office at the same time as me had the same issue so it’s clearly not an isolated case.
Pros: Easy to deal with. Newer cars.
Cons: Late for pickup
Disorganized pickup (Van fits 7, they had at least 12 people waiting when they finally arrived with more coming in)
Didn’t have the car I ordered
Unapologetic for not having the car I ordered
The car was ok, but some service light or indicators were on even if the car was in good shape, so it was not very trustworthy. Other than that the car was perfect.
We tried to cancel one of the services (mobile wifi) but it was not possible. I would hace liked more flexibility, as you do can add services but not cancel them.
Also, i asked for my invoice and i still cannot get it, this is very frustrating.
The offices are very far from downtown, and there was no transportation, so it was a bit of trouble getting there.
We didn't get the Hyundai we were expecting. Instead we got a Kia. I didn't like it much. It had little power on the infrequent hills we encountered and the fuel economy, for a car of its size, was terrible. Also, on a couple of windy days, the car felt quite unstable and buffeted a lot by the wind - we felt unsafe in this car. I would have much preferred the Hyundai. Apparently Lagoon had some issues and the Hyundai hadn't been cleaned in time. Having said that, Lagoon sent someone to our hotel to pick us up which was very helpful.Philip • 07.

thank you very much
First it was not a car, like in the contract, it was not from 2017 it was not really clean an it smelled from oil when he was warm. The light from the wheel-preasure was lightning, but the employee said, it's all ok. One day later the wheel was flat. He said, after wheel-change we should drive to Akureyri to change the wheel, but in this 200 km the car brooke down completlty. We stood about 3 hours in the rain, while the customer-servive at the phone said, in about 1 hour an mechanican will come.
When the mechanican arrived, he was very helpful and another man from a guesthouse drove us to our accomodation.
The new car came the next day at about 10:00 am, and the assitent from the company was also very helpful and nice.
With this car than we had nomore problems and the rest of the journey was really nice.
But it's a shame that we lost one day of our journey.
Never the less island is a great place!!!
The car was fine and worked well for our trip. However, the staff at Lagoon were not very friendly or helpful when we picked up the vehicle. We rented a car seat for our son and there was no instruction manual provided. The staff had no knowledge how to install the seat and when I asked for some help, I got a rather smart ass response ('you put the baby in it'). When I finally got someone to come out to the car to help, they went about installing the car seat incorrectly. The manufacturers label on the side of the seat clearly indicated that the method of install depended on the weight of the child but the person assisting us did not seem to think that was an issue and installed the seat forward facing instead of rear facing. We asked for another car seat, and there was only one available that was too small for our son (it was for newborns). Rather than offering to fix the situation, we were left to figure it out on our own. American and European countries (including Iceland) have different laws governing child seats. We relied on the rental company to provide us with a safe, functional, and reliable car seat for our trip - after all that was what we paid for - but we should have just flown with our own and risked getting in trouble for not having a 'legal' car seat since at least then we would have known our son would be safer in the event of an accident. I was disappointed that the Lagoon staff didn't appear to have any concern for our predicament. Had i not already paid for a large percentage of the rental, i would have used an international rental company instead.Jesse • 24.

Finally it is not a Hyundai i20, is a Kia Río. We had a problem in a Ring Road, cause of the gravel our car goes outside the road. I demanded a crane to our help, but anyone was to our rescue, and Lagoon Car Rental said to me that we need to wait until the next morning (this it was at night), but at the morning anyone appear. Finally, and with the people help, we could to went to the road again. We are very disappointed about this problem. In addition of this, not other problem.Jonatan • 06.

The car we received was clean and of good quality. We received ride to the office and back to the airport. But...we paid for car model Subaru Forester but in the end we received Mitsubishi Outlander. Officer employee explained that web site informs that we're paying for "Subaru Forester or similar". That is true but there is no info behind what "similar is". Forester has better off-road potential than outlander which I explained to office employee - but he told me that there is nothing he could do as there were no foresters available at the moment. That was a big disappointment for me and I requested a call with manager - but I was informed that I can do that only next day and that I have to make decision now whether I take the car or cancel booking. In this case I was forced to take the car that doesn't suit my needs. When I asked about partial refund or discount - again there was nothing he could help me. So I was left without options and without possibility to manage something. Basically that is the reason I give you low rank of service, even despite the car itself was in proper condition.Orest • 29.

I would say it was a disaster! It starting with the pick up at the airport which last forever, due to at least 15 car rental on the same morning dixit the driver! But the worst was to come , when I arrived at Lagoon, Pajero 7 seats was not available due to mechanical problems which can happen of course. So the only car available was a land cruiser 5 seats! Reason for renting a 7 seats was that we were 5 adults with luggages and we didn't want to be too tight in the car as we were making a 2500 km trip in 9 days. Due to this issue, after long talking Lagoon gave us a 343 € discount, but with the promise that Pajero when repaired will be delivered either on the same day or the day after to our hotel. And of course Lagoon will let me know what was the
progress of the repair. obviously nobody
called me, and I called the customer service who told me they sincerely apologise, they understand my disappointment and they will check with the management to grant an additional discount supposed to be in total 55000 Isk which is much higher than 343€! Supposed to be confirmed if accepted by mail which once again never happen! Finally when returning the car, I have to explain once again to somebody else the whole story. And reply was the car was still not repaired and discount granted was high enough to compensate the category difference between Pajero 7 seats and Land Cruiser 5 seats. For your information I was supposed to pay 1836€ including the 15% advance payment for the Pajero 7 seats and
I paid for the Landcruiser 1495,4€ it is a nice discount but it will not compensate the fact that customer service was really deficient and during 9 days, 3 passengers ( my daughter, son and father in law ) who were on the backseats were tighten , which spoiled a little bit our trip. Thanks god, Iceland landscapes are extraordinary! I m used to rent car either for my business or for family vacation, and it is the first time I have such a bad service. Best regards H Chambriard
Bad service had to wait at the airport for 2 hours and the rental car had a cracked glass which was very dangerous.Rahat • 11. Mar 2017 Rented a Toyota Land Cruiser from Lagoon Car Rental in February 2017
Not a good experience with Lagoon Car Rental.
Had puncture and found wheel nuts had been put on so tight it was impossible to get them off with the wheel brace supplied with the car. All Lagoon would do is send out a local mechanic to assist who I had to pay 50,000 ISK direct. If the car had been prepared properly I could have changed the wheel my self and would have cost me nothing.
Would not recommend to others and will post my views on social media.
Car was extremely dirty when we got it. The cup holders had dirt stuck to it.
The person who assisted us with the documents when we arrived needs training. He did not explain a thing to us. We had to figure everything out ourselves.
Car was great.
Service needs a lot of work.
Reccommend from start to finish
Will definitely book again!
Lagoon will make your vacation better
