Geysir Car Rental provided us with excellent customer service from start to finish. They were flexible and willing to move our rental period forward when we first arrived in Iceland. The hiring process was quick and easy. The car itself, a Dacia Duster, was perfect for the job and enabled us to travel round the Golden Circle in cold, snowy conditions with no problem. Handing back the vehicle this time at the airport was also super easy and slick. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend or use Geysir again. Thank you!Eleanor • 22.

Amazing service. An incident occurred due to no fault of northbound and they sorted it before I was notified and was even upgraded for the issue ( even tho wasn’t their fault)
Certainly recommend. Good pricing and easy to use.
I heard many Iceland car rental horror stories before renting so I was very careful to rent from an agency with positive reviews which Geysir had. Also. I purchased all available insurance which was very expensive but I wanted piece of mind. Roy was the agent who was present when I picked up the car. He was very friendly, carefully went through every aspect of the car rental contract and knowledgeably answered questions about the car and Provided helpful tourist advice. We dropped off the car in a blizzard and in the dark of the early morningZ. The attendant told us we were not filled up all the way and we would be charged a large surcharge unless we filled it up more. Even though we had just filled it up I went out into the blizzard to find a nearby station to top off the tank. That was the only issue. The only other comment is that I like an American rental agency where can pick up and drop off a rental within minutes, it took a good 30-45 minutes to complete all paperwork (even with no lines or waiting). So give yourself plenty of time to complete the rental transaction.James • 16. Jan 2018 Rented a Suzuki Jimny from Geysir Car Rental in January 2018
The reservation system was simple and the pick up location was central to Reykjavík. Drop off at the airport is within walking distance from the terminal but there is also a shuttle bus if you have too much luggage. The staff were efficient.Helen • 06.

After reading some mixed reviews I was hesitating to rent from Geysir and contacted Northbound where a friendly and competent staff assured me that everything will be allright. So I walked five minutes from the airport to their office, the staff was helpful, quick and friendly, I even got an upgrade and was offered a 4WD. The car was absolutely in good order and returning was not problem at all. My son and I were very happy and I can only recomend Geysir!Oliver • 03.

Everything worked great with Geysir Car Rental. The staff was very friendly and the car was in perfect condition. We were very happy!Michaela • 14. Apr 2018 Rented a Dacia Duster from Geysir Car Rental in March 2018
We had a great experience at Geysir. While we did not get the Subaru Forester that we had reserved, the Ford Kuga that we were given was a great drive as well. Check-in and drop-off of the car was relatively easy and painless. We would book from Geysir the next time we visit.Irene • 09. Apr 2018 Rented a Subaru Forester from Geysir Car Rental in April 2018
Geysir is a proffesional company. The staff is very helpful. The facilities in the airport office were good. The rear wiper was a bit loose but it was a tiny problem.A. Turan • 26. Mar 2018 Rented a Subaru Forester from Geysir Car Rental in March 2018
Geysir Car Rental were great to deal with. Picking up the car was fast and easy. Staff were friendly and nice to deal with. The car was great. We also had no problems returning the car. I would highly recommend Geysir.Joshua • 19. Mar 2018 Rented a Renault Clio from Geysir Car Rental in March 2018
On arrival at the car rental office I was given a free upgrade. The upgraded car was brilliant and the service we got was very professional. Booking the car was very straight forward and easy. I would definitely recommend booking through northbound!!Simon • 17. Mar 2018 Rented a Dacia Duster from Geysir Car Rental in March 2018
Thank you Northbound for helping my group and I with our disorderly situation @ Geyser Car Rental. As the rental place wasn't of much help, mixed our rentals, etc., we called the site we booked through (which happened to be Northbound), and they immensely helped our situation by doing all of the organizing of the situation on their own. Thank you so much team, without you, our trip wouldn't have been as great as it was! Thank you!Caroline • 14. Mar 2018 Rented a Hyundai i30 from Geysir Car Rental in February 2018
The car supplied was a Toyota Yaris rather than a Renault Clio, but we were very happy with the car. Picking up the car was very quick, as was dropping off the car.Stefan • 09. Mar 2018 Rented a Renault Clio from Geysir Car Rental in March 2018
My general experience with Northbound was really good. As none of our group had a credit card to secure a car rental we couldn't find a company which would allow us to use a debut card until we came across Northbound who allowed us to use cash as the deposit in case of any damages and the rest paid by a debit card. The live chat service on their website was simple to use and allowed me to communicate effectively with a member of the team to answer all my queries and reassured me that this was fine. Details were sent through via email quickly and all their terms and conditions were easily stated to avoid us missing any thing in the agreement.Jamie • 27. Jan 2018 Rented a Dacia Duster from Geysir Car Rental in January 2018
We had a great experience renting here, we missed our flight and we had no trouble with having to move our booking. Everything was explained clearly and a great feature of Geysir they do not require a credit card, just deposit!
The car was returned with out any hassle!
Very happy with the service. The vehicle was in good condition and equipped with winter tires which were a necessity. The pickup and drop off was straightforward, no surprise charges a few days after we got back which has not always been the case from my experience!Simon • 22. Jan 2018 Rented a Dacia Duster from Geysir Car Rental in December 2017
We receieved a Renault Kadjar instead of the Duster and we couldnt of asked for a better car. The whole process from the moment we arrived at the rental office went without problem and was very easy. The information provided about the car was exactly what was needed as well as answering all additional questions asked. The car its self was faultless, economic to run, clean, modern and comfortable. Nothing but praise and thanks to Geysir, as without the excellent car provided we would of found our trip very diffrent and difficult.Benjamin • 08.

Very good very happy with the car and the service picking up the car , dropping car off was very busy with only one person there serving but still very happyAndrew • 31. Dec 2017 Rented a Suzuki Vitara from Geysir Car Rental in December 2017
We had a rather new car with about 46.000 km and including tires with spikes (standard), which we certainly needed.
By checking damages before leaving, I discovered four different spots which were not reported. It seemed to me the company didn’t do that on purses and they made a sincerely excuse. I was glad to show them the problem before otherwise it would have brought me on high costs after bringing back the car. The second day I discovered a bad wiper, so I had to drive back to the airport of Keflavik. There the company changed all wipers for new ones. Because of losing half a day, it influenced unfortunately our planned trip.
The employers were very friendly all the time and the car was running fantastic. Together with the very friendly people of Iceland and its country, we have nevertheless had a great time.
Tip one: we missed an ice scratcher in the car.
Tip two: within 5 minutes you easily can walk for the airport to the car rent. Instead of waiting for the bus shuttle.
Next time we would rent at the same company of Northbound / Geysir again.
My experience was perfect! Here you can find an article about the ring road and my experience with the beautiful Dacia Duster that I rented. https://erasmusu.com/it/erasmus-reykjavik/cosa-fare/the-ring-road-11018#p56423
It is written in italian but there are a lot of beautiful picture that everybody could and should see!
We received good service from Northbound and Geysir and the price was very good for Iceland. The car was in good condition, although in future I would get a car with air conditioning as it got quite steamy on the windows when it was cold outside and we were wet. The insurance add one was reasonable in price, but buying through a broker and not from Geysir direct meant that in the event of an accident you would have to pay it and claim it back which wasn't made very clear at the time of purchase (or I probably just didn't read the small print). There were no issues with our rental though and I would use both companies again. Also, don't bother waiting for the bus at the airport - just walk as it literally takes 5 minutes.Michael • 26.

Car was good, clean, everything worked well, staff was nice, helpfull and they explained everything clearly.
I'm also happy that I didn't have to use credit card.
Really nice service, really good price and good quality vehicles.Diego Alejandro • 27. Sep 2017 Rented a Suzuki Jimny from Geysir Car Rental in September 2017
I was extremely satisfied with the service at Geysir . We arrived around 12:00 midnight and both of the attendants were not only very helpful, they were very polite and respectful. They actually seemed to be enjoying their job even though it was so late at night. My daughters and I enjoyed their genuinely friendly , conversational manner as we filled out the paperwork. The Hyundai i10 was clean, comfortable and got excellent gas mileage. It also handled well on the winding roads, both inclines and declines. We're hoping to return next year and will absolutely call for another rental. Thank you for helping to making our Iceland vacation experience so enjoyable. R. Madigan N.Tonawanda NYRobert • 05.

No unneccessary frills, just a good customer service and we had the right 4wd for a great Iceland experience.Dirk • 20. Jul 2017 Rented a Jeep Wrangler from Geysir Car Rental in July 2017
We enjoyed our rental car from Geyser very much, had no problems with the vehicle of any nature; the counter personnel were attentive and efficient.
We rented a wifi hot spot from the company, and came very handy for all of our various drives and planed trips, specially going on the golden circle tour.
I will recommend Geyser rental car to any of my friends if they plan to visit Iceland, and the booking by Northbound was a real easy and convenient way to vacation on that beautiful island.
Great services and affordable ! I ended up extending my rental twice and both times i was met with exceptional service and hassle free transactions.Josh • 28. Jun 2017 Rented a Suzuki Jimny from Geysir Car Rental in June 2017

car with 4x4 was very useful, as the street conditions can change very quickly in iceland. seat heating system for both front seats was a big plus!! usb-plug for smart phone charging was very useful. 4x4 can be taken out if not needed, so you can safe petrol. we got a discount card for petrol purchase provided by the company. excellent service, friendly personal.Karin • 13.

The car rental was excellent--the staff was friendly and helpful, they provided us will all the information we needed, and they were easy to reach when we had questions.

A perfect experience start to finish. The Northbound booking was refreshingly easy, without all the infuriating hard-sell tactics other outfits use. The team at Geysir was impossibly friendly and efficient. And the vehicle we rented was a dream to drive.
I appreciated the option for different pickup and dropoff location. The communication, the service in the office, and the car itself was all good. There were some small issues (like the fuel gauge did not show full right after filling up), but the staff was helpful and fair.Adam • 05.

The Suzuki jimmy was the perfect car for two with luggage and run smoothly on the regular highway, fine on the gravel covered roads, but a bit bumpy on washed out gravel roads. The vehicle was clean and in good condition and functioned well. The service was good and the car was ready despite booking the night before. The agent was professional and allowed us some grace time on the return.Prisca Dawne • 12. Sep 2016 Rented a Suzuki Jimny from Geysir Car Rental in August 2016
The experience was good on the whole. I did pay for a diesel 4x4, unfortunately I received a petrol, which ended up costing me more to run during my trip. Geysir were helpful and explained the roads and laws well. They didn't explain why I didn't get the car I had originally ordered though..Darren • 19. Mar 2018 Rented a Suzuki Vitara from Geysir Car Rental in March 2018
Well, it was not a Renault Clio. It has been "upgraded" to Honda civic. I know Civic is a better car on most (good) roads, but not on the roads in Iceland. It`s a very low car with hard suspension so the Clio would be a much better option for me, especially diesel engine option which I requested. When picking up the car I requested to clean a large chocolate stain on the back seat and the guy cleaning the cars proposed to clean it for a fee. He cleaned it for free with a wet towel after all. Otherwise all fine, satesfied with overall experience. Thanks!Joze • 18. Mar 2018 Rented a Renault Clio from Geysir Car Rental in March 2018
The duster was absolutely ok. Everything was clean and it worked without problems. The pick up of the car at the Geysir office near the airport proceed fast and uncomplicated. But the return of the car was not so easy. We bring the car back at the Geysir office at 04:30 am, because we must catch our flight at 07:00 am. During this time nobody of the Geysir crew was at the office, so that we must wait for a guy to give back the car. This was not so niceDaniel • 16.

Great service. The car was excellent for two ppl. Very comfortable even driving for hours on F-roads. The car had a faulty/unadjusted handbrake which was a major neglect from geysers side. You will need a functioning hand brake when you park in 4WD conditions. Otherwise the car worked perfectly well.Nille • 16. Aug 2017 Rented a Jeep Wrangler from Geysir Car Rental in August 2017
Great but The Jeep need some tune up
Loved the car and value for it. The drop off at the airport location was very convenient. However the pick up office in the Harpa concert hall was a bit difficult to find on our own.Cristina • 18. Apr 2017 Rented a Hyundai i10 from Geysir Car Rental in April 2017

Everything was fine, but I'm giving 4 stars because the email I received said someone from Gesyir would would meet us at the arrival hall. We waited and no one showed up. We got on the rental car bus and it took us to Gesyir no problem. Wouldn't be a big deal but it was inconvenient to wait for someone to not show up. Would not have minded getting on the bus if that's what the instructions said.Jason • 26. Sep 2016 Rented a Subaru Outback Diesel from Geysir Car Rental in September 2016
We hired a Hyundai i20 which was good value. It enabled us to visit Vatnajokull Glacier, which is quite amazing. We also saw waterfalls and scenery which were absolutely memorable. When we returned to Reykiavic we were greatly impressed by the city and thoroughly enjoyed whale-watching. We loved Iceland.Paul • 23.

Cleanliness: Clean, Good
Facility: New and sufficient
The car, checking and out were fine. My only complaint is about the fact you didn't stated clearly - or I may be blind - that your counter was not in the airport but required taking on a bus. I've wasted 40' waiting at the airport exit.Alain • 23. Sep 2016 Rented a Jeep Wrangler from Geysir Car Rental in September 2016
I did not get the car (Hyundai i10 ) I booked, because someone had made a mistake and put my booking into the computer for 2018 ! When they checked the booking , they told, it was for 2017 indeed. They gave me another car - Toyota Aygo, good, that they did have a spare car at the moment. What if they didn't have one? It was practically new, run only 17000 km, in very good condition and comfortable, so to be honest, I was satisfied with it . What concerns picking up and dropping the car, it was not pleasant at all. The Geysir office is at the far end of all rental car parks, and the bus taking You there is not very reliable, as I found out. When I dropped the car at 19pm, I waited for the bus for 30 min ( it was cold, raining and windy and there was nowhere to take a shade), the bus did not come and then I just walked this long way to the terminal. Your company should warn clients, that CDW ( what was included in Your offer) and even SCDW cover practically nothing in Iceland. If a client does not want problems, it is advisable to take practically all other insurances as well, what would raise the price of the car rental significantly or take a risk to pay X amount of money later. Personally I took the insurances to have a peace of mind. In a way I do understand rental companies in Iceland to demand all those insurances, when I saw, how many clients were treating their rental cars - how they were driving and what some cars looked like - muddy all over up to the roofs etc. Which meant, they had been driving even small cars on full speed on roads they were not supposed to drive on. And of course, probably few people have any idea, what bad weather conditions mean in Iceland and how easy it is to get a stone into your car's windscreen or somewhere else even on paved roads. PS. Rating 3,0 is NOT for the car, but for whole experience. Rating for car is 5,0.Malle • 01. Oct 2017 Rented a Hyundai i10 from Geysir Car Rental in September 2017
Good, but problems at my arrival, my credit card did not work to pay and as a security (Athorisation Denied) at Geysir. I was forced to go back to the airport to withdraw the cash at an ATM machine.Oreste • 28. Mar 2017 Rented a Jeep Wrangler from Geysir Car Rental in March 2017
People's service was excellent !
However , we faced a big problem . We couldn't drive properly , because of damaged front glass which couldn't be clear out of heavy rain !!!!
Consider that we rent a car for round trip in ICELAND with all bad weather conditions , and risk several times because we couldn't see !!!
Can't say a bad thing about it!
Would definitely use again
Geysir you rock!
Get the gravel insurance!
Professional little outfit
