Review from a customer
No hassle at all! Very helpful and available staff, we'll equipped vehicle (studded tires are a lifesaver)• Matthew • 06. Feb 2017 • Rented a Hyundai i30 from Rent A Wreck in January 2017
The experience was very good. The company exceeded our expectations, because they provided not only the service promised, but also a GPS for free. Besides, the contact person was very kind with us, and the range of the opening hours is very wide, very convenient taking into account the arrival time of the flights.Francisco Jose • 10. May 2017 Rented a Hyundai i30 from Rent A Wreck in April 2017
It was a good experience. A little more training about the specific car would have been good, as I do not have the same type of "reverse" button on my 5 speed manual transition car in America. Also, the gas cap would not open at the gas station, and the attendant at the gas station had to assist with this; and we were able to get it to open. I will use Rent A Wreck again while I am in Iceland. Thanks!Karen • 27. Apr 2017 Rented a Hyundai i30 from Rent A Wreck in April 2017
I was very pleased with the service from rent a wreck, they were very helpful and understanding when we were delayed returning the car.
The only problem was the car, it was a Nissan note, the car was very clean but the brakes were a bit uneasy and the windscreen wipers needed changing, obviously reduced visibility gave us a few nervy moments in the conditions.
Would definitely be happy to book again but would want to be sure about the car condition before i arrived
The guy who took us at the airport was in time. However there had been a couple issues: he forgot to tell us some things but most important is that we had nailed tiers on, which is illegal in may (we were stopped by the police).Carla • 27. May 2017 Rented a Hyundai i30 from Rent A Wreck in May 2017
Great! It was quick and easy to find the Rent a Wreck employee at the airport who walked us out to the car. We got a free vehicle upgrade since they didn't have the original car we reserved and it was absolutely adequate. Plenty of space and we did a decent amount of driving on unpaved roads and it held up like a champ. It was also convenient to be able to drop the car off at the airport at the end of our trip and be on our way. Plus it was marginally less expensive than the other car rental companies I looked at.Chase • 16. Jun 2017 Rented a Suzuki Jimny from Rent A Wreck in June 2017
Rent A Wreck was GREAT! Very easy and straight forward reserving g online and even easier in person. Our service provided was very informal extremely welcoming. I would recommend anyone going to Iceland to check them out, they have the perfect vehicle for Froads that can help you journey be smooth and safe. I give these guy 10 stars. Please check them out!:)Sameer • 04. Jun 2017 Rented a Suzuki Grand Vitara from Rent A Wreck in May 2017
I wanted to rent a Suzuki Jimny. What a suprised in the airport when they told me that I have been upgraded to a nice Dacia Duster.
We pick up and drop off the car directly at the airport. We didn't even have to clean it, something that a lot of companies ask.
All the explanation were very clear. I recommend this company
Very good. The car was excellent. Also, when I arrived early at the airport, Johann, the rep assigned to help me, was already there waiting for me. After filling out some simple and clear-cut paperwork, he explained the basic things to be cautious of while driving in Iceland and I was off. Not only was Johann super helpful at the airport when I arrived in Iceland, he had also answered some questions via email that I had about the car weeks before my trip.
Overall, an excellent experience. I plan on using Northbound for every trip.
Overall great experience. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Gave us good tips and went over the contract and the car with us before we headed out. We had a Hyundai xi-35 because the Suzuki was not available when we arrived and it was great vehicle that was comparable to the suzuki. Car drove smoothly and we had no issues with it. It was a very good rental. I chose northbound because of the price and the package deal we found for the rental and it was perfect.Joseph • 13. May 2017 Rented a Suzuki Grand Vitara from Rent A Wreck in May 2017
I'm very satisfied of renting a Cart from Rent A Wreck. The customer support was amazing and everything was perfect for our journey on Iceland.
Thanks to Rent A Wreck!
My rental was great. The guy who picked us up at the airport was incredibly helpful. He gave us great tips on driving, and Iceland in general. The fact that they picked us up was great, but being able to email you, and get feedback was great. We'll be back in Iceland, and will definitely use your services again. Thanks!Hadley • 01. May 2017 Rented a Dacia Duster from Rent A Wreck in April 2017
Superb; flexible and efficient; best value for money
Friendly people at Northbound and rent a wreck
Our wreck was a Suzuki Vitara with 230,000 km on the teller; great engine condition; no worries about the body work as it was already bruised and dented here and there ;)
Car rental with rent a wreck was awesomely easy. We got picked up at the airport got our car really fast had no issues. Also I contacted northbound and rent a wreck before our trip regarding different questions and they answered really fast and nice. Really good support from both companies.
I chose northbound for my car rental because there were not only the best value car rentals available (and I compared a lot) but also they offered the most honest information and trustworthy support and web page and had really good reviews.
I would totally recommend booking via Northbound.is
Also I love their free ebook 'Iceland 101' which gives a lot of information summed up in a nice smartphone friendly format.
Thank you Northbound for making my trip to Iceland even more awesome.
Great -- the person who picked us up was very friendly and walked us through everything we needed to know about the car. The car itself was perfect -- easy to drive, built in USB charger, iPod and bluetooth connectivity for music, handled well in the snow that we drove through, fuel efficient, and most importantly comfortable seats given that we were in the car for several hours each day. We would definitely rent a Duster again if we come back.Walker • 18. Apr 2017 Rented a Dacia Duster from Rent A Wreck in April 2017
We were met at airport arrivals and shown around the vehicle in the carpark immediately outside. All was quick and efficient without problems. Returning it was just as simple. A really good service. I would recommend the vehicle and the price.David • 18. Apr 2017 Rented a Suzuki Jimny from Rent A Wreck in April 2017
I would totally recommend Rent A Wreck to rent a car in Iceland. Our car - a 4x4 Dacia Duster - was perfect for 4 people and had no problems, even not on snowy forest roads. A few minutes after our arrival a man from Rent A Wreck brought us to the car. Everything was fine. Thank you!Martin • 14. Mar 2017 Rented a Dacia Duster from Rent A Wreck in February 2017
We had a great experience with Rent a Wreck! The prices were unbeatable and the service was exceptional! Thankfully because they are aware of what time our flights arrived, we called an hour earlier than we originally set up our pickup time and they were actually already arriving at the airport and we got to get our car right then! The car drove well and met all of our expectionals; great experience I would definitely recommend them!Valerie • 14. Feb 2017 Rented a Suzuki Grand Vitara from Rent A Wreck in February 2017
Everything went very smoothly with Rent A Wreck. Somebody was waiting for us with a sign as I was leaving baggage claim, showed us around the car, then we were off. You just park the car when you get back to the airport in a certain spot after your trip and you're good to go! It's pretty painless. The car was perfect for what we needed and the best price I could find for the quality. The customer service was great. I couldn't recommend them enough.Kara • 03. Feb 2017 Rented a Suzuki Grand Vitara from Rent A Wreck in January 2017
Would definitely recommend. Was ready to pick me up from the airport terminal at 05:00, car was ready, and I was on my way shortly. No issues with the car, overall a great rental.Ian • 30. Jan 2017 Rented a Dacia Duster from Rent A Wreck in January 2017
Très gentils et serviables malgré notre retard d'avion et la période de noel tout était parfait. Nous recommandons vivement !Lucie • 12. Jan 2017 Rented a Suzuki Jimny from Rent A Wreck in December 2016
Everything about the experience with Northbound and Rent A Wreck was great. Northbound were easy to deal with, by far the cheapest company for hire in Iceland by well over £100. Having dealt with broker companies before in other countries I was hesitant about the service we might get from Rent A Wreck but they were equally impressive. They picked us up from the airport at gone midnight which was good service, gave us the car and satnav as ordered. The Suzuki Jimny, although old as expected, was in good health and served us perfectly. We had no issues with the car and all round were very happy, especially considering the price was so good!Daniel • 30. Dec 2016 Rented a Suzuki Jimny from Rent A Wreck in December 2016
I was a little wary that the company was not at the airport and may be a little troublesome to meet up with the representive and go to the company to collect the car. However, it was a smooth transition and very soon, we are onto a great adventure in Iceland. The car is great, the GPS is helpful and generally made our trip more awesome than it already was. Returning the car was a breeze as well, especially when we were returning the car at odd hours. Cheers to rent-a-wreck for delivering as promised.Song Fong • 23. Dec 2016 Rented a Suzuki Grand Vitara from Rent A Wreck in December 2016
Rent-A-Wreck were excellent! We hired a Suzuki Jimny from them and it was just the job to get us around the Golden Circle and everywhere we wanted to go. The customer service was fantastic.Samuel • 29. Nov 2016 Rented a Suzuki Jimny from Rent A Wreck in November 2016
We had a great exprience with Rent A Wreck and Northbound from start to finish.
Very responsive customer service. We forgot to add an extra driver and also wanted to add Sand and Ash protection the day before picking up the car, we got help instantly which was very nice.
Also, getting the car delivered to our Air bnb was a very good experience. Saved us all the hassle with waiting in line at the pickup office and so on.
On the day of leaving the car we were a bit late but the personal came and picked us up att the gas-station close to Keflavik Airport, we jumped in another car and they drove our rental car to the next customer. Great experience!
We got exactly what we asked and paid for. It's hard to find a cheap 4x4 car when travelling to a country you had never been before and so it was nice to find a good, easy website where you could find cheap rentals.
We had a great time in Iceland and driving around was a beautiful experience because wherever you looked the view was stunning.
I would definitely recommend anyone to drive around Iceland to get to know the country properly and see all that it has to offer.
I found it to be an excellent experience, the car was great, being met at the airport was awesome and the prices were extremely reasonable.Devon • 11. Nov 2016 Rented a Suzuki Jimny from Rent A Wreck in November 2016
The service with northbound was very good. All you rent is inside. Very good and helpful is the GPS-System. The car has some stone strikes outside but it doesn't matter.
Otherwise was everything ok.
Best regards, Angela
This car worked out very well for our journey. Although we did pick the cheapest option, I felt that the car didn't need to be super special for what we were going to do. We started along the Ring Road and extended some of our adventures to places like Borgarfjörður Eystri, Þórshöfn, and Siglufjörður. We did not take the car on any F-Roads, but did find quite a bit of gravel and other dirt roads. This just meant taking it slower and easier.
The car was just enough space for two people and camping gear. I would recommend the same vehicle for anyone interested in doing a similar trip.
It was pretty good! I believe that I got what I paid for - because it was pretty cheap compared to some of the other cars that I was looking at. I guess what I am trying to say is that the guy who picked us up was a little late, the car was on empty when he handed over the keys, the exterior was a little beat up, including the fact that the driver door didn't shut all the way, the GPS was broken and the rental company didnt have a backup (but we were going to use a map anyway) - But we are a bunch of poor recent college grads and for what we paid for, it was great! The car ran well - though the car said it was 4x4 the actual instructions said not to take it on the f roads - which was a little disappointing. So I am not sure I would advertise it as four-wheel drive. Also I would check with rent a wreck on the insurance. It was a little complicated when we got there, so I would make sure what you are advertising is what they offer.
At the end of the day, the car was exactly what we needed. It worked, it was big enough, and we felt pretty safe. We took care of the car and didn't do anything stupid (no off-roading, driving through rivers, or speeding through the ice). I hope that we don't see any charges for anything post trip - like I said, the car was pretty beat up when we got it but they had documented every scratch on the car. So I guess we will see.
The last thing I would mention is that when advertising the car, make sure there are instructions to bring a credit card.
Thanks for everything! Yall were super prompt in all of your responses and very helpful!
Great! We were very pleased with the vehicle and its performance and it made our Iceland 100 times better! The only issue we had was having to wait about an hour at the airport to be picked up. Otherwise, everything was great and it was very convenient for us to be able to leave the car at our hotel in Keflavik before leaving for the airport. Thanks for a great experience overall!Zoe • 19.

Globaly it was good but we anyway had a bad experience the first day because of the battery of the first susuki jimny that was completly empty. But your team was reactiv and the second car they brought to Geysir was OK...Easy to bring the car back, that's a very good point! Thanks. Best regards. Françoise and Claus.Homberg • 23. Mar 2017 Rented a Suzuki Jimny from Rent A Wreck in March 2017
Good. Contact by telephone was easy, practical and friendly. It was however a bit strange we had to leave the car at the airport, without somebody receiving the keys and checking the car.Marcus • 17. Mar 2017 Rented a Suzuki Grand Vitara from Rent A Wreck in February 2017
The vehicle was fine. Service to the car upon arrival was efficient. Returning the car was cumbersome. Nobody was at the office, so we waited for nearly a half hour. We finally decided to leave the car at the airport but had to call to find out where to leave it. So find that out at the beginning of your journey and don't wait for someone to transport you.Alfred • 11. Jun 2017 Rented a Hyundai i10 from Rent A Wreck in June 2017
The car was ok, globally in line with expectations.
Pick-up at airport went relatively smoothly (we had to give a call to be said that the driver would arrive soon, with the intention to pick up another traveler who would arrive a bit later than us, which traveler did eventually not show up). But again, it is ok.
We have been told to drop the car at the airport (at 6 am), leaving the key inside the car. I feel a bit uncomfortable about that, wondering who would be responsible in case of problem with the car (theft or damage before you retrieve the car).
By the way, it would be relevant to send a message to the traveler to tell him that the car has been duly retrieved (in case the car has been left at the airport) and that everything is ok.
Lastly, we have been given the car with empty tank, so we left the car at the airport with empty tank, as suggested by the people from Northbound. I hope again that I will not be charged for that.
With best regards.
Overall our experience was positive. The car we rented was in good general conditions, very very clean and suitable for driving in Iceland in April under all weather conditions. The Staff was punctual in giving us the car at the airport. The only weaknesses of the service deal with the communication process: first, the car we received was not the Dacia Duster we reserved online, but was replaced with a Suzuki Grand Vitara. Albeit the car we received was equivalent, if not better, than the one we reserved, we would have appreciated being informed about it quite in advance. Second, initially we were instructed that we would have dropped the car at Rent A Wreck offices in Keflavik and we would have been picked up there and brought to the hotel in Keflavik; however, when we were given the car, we were instructed to leave the car at the hotel. Actually, the next morning the car was still in the hotel parking without receiving any communication from them. Again, although the process was ok, we would have been happy to receive a more precise communication about it.Gabriele • 06. May 2017 Rented a Dacia Duster from Rent A Wreck in April 2017
I am very pleased with the 4WD that I rented from Rent A Wreck. Additionally, I would like to commend on their services as their staff would come pick us up a the airport to take you to the rental store to collect the vehicle. The staff was also very kind and detailed in explaining to us about things to look our for while driving in Iceland.Herald Jun Hao • 04. Jan 2017 Rented a Suzuki Jimny from Rent A Wreck in December 2016
It was a really great experience, although I think that car was a bit more expensive than expexcted. The jeep was too tiny for that price. However, the staff treated us very kindly and gathered us at the airport, what was very well, as our flight had delayed.Sergio • 21. Dec 2016 Rented a Suzuki Jimny from Rent A Wreck in December 2016
Our Jimny was a reliable car, which took us nearly everywhere on Iceland we wanted to go.
For this price it was in a good condition. Only the back door closed not so good, so that all the time the indicator light was glowing. Furthermore the fan belt was squealing very loud when the engine was cold.
But all in all, everything was OK.
It was just fine. We had a 4x4 Suzuki a long time ago for our kids and so we're not surprised at all. The doors rattled on the gravel,and had to be slammed to close but otherwise, all was well. What a fantastically beautiful country it passed us through.Doreen • 23. Jun 2017 Rented a Suzuki Jimny from Rent A Wreck in June 2017
First of all we got a Suzuki Grand Vitara as there was no Duster available. An automatic; We had problems with a door, and got a new one, this time a manual shift. Perfect service. The cars don't look to good but are technically perfectly sound.
However, we have an issue as the price of RaW and Northbound are not the same. We paid more than agreed on and have not yet gotten a solution.
This car was horible, bad direction, bad brakes, I really didn't feel safe. I asked to replace it, after a check with a mechanic n Vik.Then I received another one which get down with the battery, so afterwords, I was always stressed that I couldn't start. The positive point was that you were available, helpfull and you tried to find a solution. Thanks and best regardsOlivia • 23. Apr 2017 Rented a Suzuki Jimny from Rent A Wreck in March 2017
The car made a terrible first Impression, but was actually very good. As it was quite warm the road conditions were not very challenging, but the car did its Job well.
We did not realise that "Rent a Wreck" was to be taken literally. Again, the car was good, but we did not know that you are specialised in rentals of old cars.
Once we got the car it was fine. Apparently the previous renter brought the car back just an hour or so before we were due to pick it up. Your guy had a hard time finding where it was parked. That part delayed us an hour or more. He was super nice and apologized. The car was fine once we got rolling. We only did a one day stop over in Iceland so it cut into our time a little. Communication before the rental was good. I appreciated that.Stephen • 13. Jan 2017 Rented a Suzuki Grand Vitara from Rent A Wreck in January 2017
The Dacia Duster was transformed into a Suzuki Grand Vitara. Hmm ... Suzuki was Ok, but unfortunately a renter before us had damaged the right front door. So this door was difficult to open and close, sometimes open randomly ehile driving and also allowed some constant fresh air stream to enter the car. Also the 4x4 transmission was defect. Bottom-line: it is called Rent-a-wreck and it was a wreck. The upside was that we were never spotted out as tourists when parking the car, but even asked for directions and tips on Iceland ;-)Rainer • 04. Apr 2017 Rented a Dacia Duster from Rent A Wreck in March 2017
We arrived at the airport and the pick up was not there. After 45 minutes, a guy came but there was another couple waiting for a pick up. We had to separate our family so that my husband could go pick up the car with the couple( there was not room enough for all). He said we would have a discount but we did not. Our invoice with North Bound was in isk but at Rent a wreck, all was in euros. We could not compare and be sure it was the right amount. There were lights flashing in the car saying one door was open, but it was not. There were no lights in the car. The key holder for automatic opening and closing of the doors did not work. We were very disappointed. The day after, there was snow and there was no snow Broom. I would not recommend to anyone.Steve • 15. Mar 2017 Rented a Suzuki Grand Vitara from Rent A Wreck in March 2017
In the begining It Wasn't very polite to be oblige to phone three time about the time of apointement. They told me twice maybe three time that it should come in a few minutes and after in a ten minutes and after it should be there. To cloncluate we wait for a ride to the office 1 hour in total. We were in a lack of informations. We were let alone waiting for some knowledge about the pick up time to rent à wreck office. We were so anxious and disappointed.
During formalities of renting car it Was so different we don't check fuel. For the return we Just have to let the car into a parking at the airport without any checking.
But however it Was à good car and we had a good journey.
I think rent a car need more organisation.
I was hopeful when I saw the positive reviews for Rent a Wreck on the northbound website, but don't be mistaken. You really are getting terrible cars. Our first car was swapped half way though our trip from what sounded like bad bearings or a really poorly misaligned brake. Either way we felt it was not safe to drive any longer and we're concerned that we would get stranded somewhere. I will say that rent a wreck worked hard to swap us out for a new vehicle, but not until I had contacted them multiple times, which is the only reason they aren't getting a flat 1 star. Upon receiving the second car, which was supposed to be approved for F road usage (I should note that this car had less clearance than our previous one, but was newer) started sounding like there were loose bolts jostling around in the engine on the second day of our drive. I should mention that we never did any hard driving...a couple of gravel roads, but 98% paved. I didn't ever feel 100% confident in these cars and I will not rent from them again if I ever return to Iceland. Anyone looking to do ANY gravel roads should seriously consider renting elsewhere.Landon • 15. Mar 2017 Rented a Suzuki Grand Vitara from Rent A Wreck in March 2017
The car rental company was not waiting for us at the airport door. Moreover, when they came to pick us up they came with a 5 pax car so 1 people of the group couldn't fit in the car and had to wait at the airport. In total that delayed us 2 hours in total.Salvador • 30. Jan 2017 Rented a Dacia Duster from Rent A Wreck in January 2017
My experience was very displeasing. I was not picked up on time. I had to call the company 3 times before anyone answered, and then waited over an hour at the airport for pick up. Moreover, drop off of the car was convoluted. I arrived back to the US and found myself slammed with a $2000 charge with no explanation, documentation, etc. Would not use again.Alexander • 27.
