we have rented one of the Ford Explorers with a roof tent. The stuff was very accommodating and helpful, they picked us up at the airport, explained everything in a professional manner and went out of their way to help when we have encountered some battery issues with the car.
If I come to Iceland again I will rent from them.

We had a car-renting experience with canping cars and it was really good. The staff was really friendly and the car had everything we wanted. The roof tent was really easy to set up, it had a confortable mattress and it protect us from the rain and wind

Victor  •  17. Sep 2017 Rented a Ford Escape +Roof Tent from Camping Cars in September 2017

I had a great experience with Camping Cars! I typically have trouble sleeping in tents, but the car tent was quite comfortable - and surprisingly kept us warm throughout the evening. I was also pleasantly surprised at how easy it was to set up a tent - it took about 1 minute. Also, I have to give a big shout out to the owners. Both were incredibly friendly, accommodating, and happy to give us tips and recommendations within Iceland.

Alex  •  12. Sep 2017 Rented a Ford Escape +Roof Tent from Camping Cars in September 2017

One of my favourite trips ever! Primary purpose was photography hence the need to pull over frequently. Loved my Ford Escape with V6. Lots of power and 4 wheel drive essential for some of the roads and pull offs. Some trepidation about roof top camping initially but worked out quite well. As a single lots of space and nice not to be on the ground in a few overnight rainstorms. Great pickup at airport . Always wanted to be one of those lucky folks who had their name on a sigh. Other places suggested 40 dollar cab ride to pick up vehicle. Was given excellent advice at rental station re whale watching and best sites. Wifi in car was great with 4 G. Couldn't have been happier with choice.

David  •  04. Sep 2017 Rented a Ford Escape +Roof Tent from Camping Cars in August 2017

Absolutely Phenomenal!! The BEST way to see Iceland! We HIGHLY Recommend!!

Cheetah  •  26. Aug 2017 Rented a Ford Escape +Roof Tent from Camping Cars in June 2017

We LOVED our car. Renting from Camping Cars was fast, easy, and convenient. The staff was very friendly and the car was perfect for the trip. I highly recommend Camping Cars if you're traveling throughout Iceland.

Robin  •  21. Aug 2017 Rented a Ford Escape +Roof Tent from Camping Cars in August 2017

Very good.

Dominik  •  21. Aug 2017 Rented a Ford Escape +Roof Tent from Camping Cars in August 2017

Very great experience with Camping Cars. The car was a little older, but this is a plus. You don't need to worry about scratches and they don't try to rip you off.
Everything was just great and despite the age, the car was in a safe and good condition.
Their customer service was very exceptional.

The car was great, and the people were even better. The roof top tent was excellent and just what we were looking for. We were picked up from the airport right at 7 AM. wew were given some excellent sugestion for things to do during our stay and they were perfect. Highly recommend Northbound. Treated us very well.

Manon  •  17. Jul 2017 Rented a Suzuki Jimny +Roof Tent from Camping Cars in July 2017

Such a wonderful adventure thanks to Camping Cars! The car was highly reliable and able to get us wherever we desired and the tent camper on the top was fun and easy to set up! Already recommending it to friends and family considering a trip to such a majestic country! Tak!

Summer  •  04. Jul 2017 Rented a Ford Escape +Roof Tent from Camping Cars in June 2017

As I lay out on my first night in my Northbound Ford Escape + roof tent I was in awe, of not just the incredible beauty of the wilderness that surrounded me, but of the sturdy Italian engineering of the tent that sheltered me.

For anyone going to Iceland, i would definitely recommend northbound as the best way to see the country. Their service and quality was incredible- if we had any questions during our trip they were very responsive to emails and had great suggestions for things to do during our stay.

Steve  •  01. Jul 2017 Rented a Ford Escape +Roof Tent from Camping Cars in June 2017

Camping Cars was exactly what my friends and I were looking for. The roof top tent on the Ford Escape 4WD worked perfectly for our 8 day trip around the country. Camping Cars was extremely helpful in giving advice about what to see and do while in Iceland, along with the services they provide. Highly recommended!!!

Hunter  •  11. Jun 2017 Rented a Ford Escape +Roof Tent from Camping Cars in May 2017

We didnt get to use the tent because of heavy winds in Isafjordur, but the car was nice (and probably the tent would have been nice to). The staff at Camping cars was very helpfull and nice.

Roy Henrik  •  03. May 2017 Rented a Ford Escape +Roof Tent from Camping Cars in April 2017

Everything went well with Northbound and Camping Cars. I recommend them!

Josue  •  05. Apr 2017 Rented a Ford Escape +Roof Tent from Camping Cars in April 2017

We had such a great experience with this company! We rented a Ford Escape with a roof tent so that we could easily road trip around the ring road for the week we were in Iceland. We went in March so we're expecting lots of different weather. We instantly got a good impression from Camping Cars and it's staff at the airport, when they picked us up at the airport at 6am, an hour earlier than they said they would, so we didn't have to wait until the company opened in the morning. They set us up very quickly with our rental once we got to their office, and we're on our way within 30 minutes!

The car was great on the road as well! We hit a number of blizzards and both the car and the tent held up better than expected each time! In fact, multiple times during the road trip we mentioned to each other that we were so happy we went with this option as opposed to a rental van or camper, because it was so much more fun and authentic to be traveling with the roof tent, and the car worked perfectly in the weather and snow. Both were spacious enough for the two of us and all of our bags to fit comfortably too.

When we returned to the rental company at the end of the trip, the agent took us to the airport immediately and dropped us off. He made it extremely easy for us the entire time! We really recommend using this company and using a car with a roof tent if you're deciding between multiple companies--especially if you are adventurous and looking for a more authentic experience that is cheaper than buying a newer, expensive 4x4 option from another company. Thanks for everything Camping Cars!

Layne  •  21. Mar 2017 Rented a Ford Escape +Roof Tent from Camping Cars in March 2017

Camping Cars offered us a great experience! They picked us up from the airport for free, and dropped us off at the end of our trip. They prepared us for everything we needed to know about how to use the tent and tips on how to get around Iceland. The car was a perfect camping combination for Iceland: 4x4 SUV and a roof tent that was well-insulated against the cold. I think that type of car is the best way to get around Iceland!

Emilia  •  16. Mar 2017 Rented a Ford Escape +Roof Tent from Camping Cars in March 2017

Our trip around Iceland was unforgettable because of our car rental! Everything was great! There was one small hiccup, that was able to be smoothed out, but definitely something to mention. One month before our trip, I contacted Northbound about changing our cars pick-up time. The representative accidentally gave false information about being able to pick up the car in Reykjavik, which was fine, but he still agreed to change our time-- but then, upon calling Camping Cars the day before we were supposed to pick up the car, we found out the pick up time was never changed. Everything worked out in the end, and over all Northbound was good. But thankfully we called the actual rental company the day before! I would recommend using Northbound to a friend as the prices were great! I would just suggest they are also in touch with the rental company for confirmation.

Many thanks!
Lauren

Lauren  •  18. Sep 2017 Rented a Ford Escape +Roof Tent from Camping Cars in September 2017

Good service and a nice car to drive, but I think it used to much gas. Overall a good experience.

Andrea Nótt  •  27. Aug 2017 Rented a Ford Escape +Roof Tent from Camping Cars in August 2017

it was fully aligned with our expectation.
Just one comment about the Kitchenette. It would be good to have a better camping gas and to have it a little bit more complete. It's difficult to rely on it for all your meals when you only camp.

Xavier  •  15. Aug 2017 Rented a Ford Escape +Roof Tent from Camping Cars in July 2017

The whole experience was great. Runar and other staff at Northbound were very quick to answer any questions and to update any changes I wanted made to the rental car. H.P. at Camping Cars was a superb intro to Iceland itself. He took the time to make sure we were happy with the roof tent and our planned itinerary. We even made a side trip to see the Dynjandi falls based on his recommendation and it was one of our highlights of the trip. Excellent service all around.

Sean  •  09. Aug 2017 Rented a Ford Escape +Roof Tent from Camping Cars in August 2017

we rent the car in august for 10 days. All was fine, person pick up as at the airport and went to their office, he was very kind and helpful with us, for our lot of questions about weather, bus and other manners in Iceland. I will raccomend them to my friend if needed. Car was good, clean, the tent ok and all working. Only one "negative" note, it was a big gazoline engine, so it waste a lot of litres for our usage. If you plan to have long drive in F-roads you should have a tank.
