We rented an older car which, as it turned out, had a LOT of milage on it. The car was well cared for and performed well. We read that travelers should purchase gravel insurance, as well as about six different kinds of coverage. This is part of why we chose an older vehicle, since much of this was included in the price. Sudden wind and road gravel are very real perils in Iceland.
Airport pick-up was excellent. When we arrived just before four o'clock in the morning to drop it off (we had early flight out of Iceland) they were there and working. Return to the Keflavik was as easy as the pick up.
Please respect the rules, don't try to drive through a river of water, don't drive on the F roads (stick to the main roads) etc. After you've driven there, you will appreciate why they need these rules.
All in all - an excellent experience. Nice job, guys!
Pretty fine service from Northbound: commited a mistake compiling the booking web form (erroneous pickup date due to round-midnight flight), written a mail to Northbound in the evening, problem fixed the next morning.
Nordic Car Rental provided a good service too: prompt pick-up at Keflavik Intl Airport, fine car, nearly brand-new, no problem at all during our 1-week trip around Iceland, so I cannot comment about their technical assistance in case of failure (they gave me a reference number to call active 24h a day).
Our rental car experience with Northbound went fantastic ! The staff was very personable and efficient. Pickup from the airport makes everything very simple (only wish the sign the person held said “Northbound” rather than “Nordic rentals” because we were a little confused) - besides that it was an overall great experience and would not hesitate to use this company again.Taylor • 12.

We came from germany and booked our car online. We rent a Dacia Duster. Unfortunately the Dacia was not available because one of their Dacias was broken. So we got a Toyota RAV4. Even a better option in my opinion. The car was in an overall good condition. A few hits and dents here and there but nothing serious. We got time to inspect the car before leaving so we could take notes about all damages we found on the car.
Our stay was four days and the car worked perfectly fine! The team in the office was friendly and the transport from and to the airport worked out just well.
We would definitely choose Nordic Car Rental again at the next time!
Booking was easy and straightforward. Communication was good and car was as expected. Prices were the most competitive. Liked the blog posts as they provided practical information for driving in Iceland. Would definitely use again and refer to others.Lisa • 10.

I had a great experience with Northbound! I compared prices with multiple car rentals and their price beat them all.

The Nissan Qashqai we rented in Iceland was wonderful! It had great has mileage and lots of room for us and our luggage! The people at the front desk were very welcoming and made us laugh! We even had someone give us a special ride to the airport since the shuttle bus didn’t have enough room.Joli • 07. Sep 2018 Rented a Nissan Qashqai from Nordic Car Rental in September 2018
We rented a standard Hyundai i20. The price included SCDW, CDW, Gravel and Sand. The car got us around the entire island without issues. The check-out/check-in were easy and we had no problems whatsoever. We also were shuttled from and to the airport. The service and company went above and beyond and highly recommend Nordic Car Rental. When we return to Iceland we will once again be using Nordic as our primary choice for transportation.Harry • 04.

- The process for renting in the webpage was fine.
- The car performed good.
- The state of the car was good.
- The customer support from northbound was great.
- The customer support from the rental company, Nordic Car Rental wasn't acceptable since they never answer the phone the days before, nor answer the emails.
Northbound helped me find the perfect car for my needs at a great price. I won't hesitate to do business with them again when I go back to Iceland.
Yes, very good car …. out trip was very nice and your organisatiron was perfect. Other, your price was very competitive. When wei'll come again in Iceland, sure choose again your company. Thanks & regards. Federico - ItalyFederico • 28. Aug 2018 Rented a Dacia Duster from Nordic Car Rental in August 2018
overall good no pressure selling exra insurance, or arguments over return condition. collection late at airport, and again delay in return to airport, however seems to be lack of staff as the driver was clearly doing his best, and did a rapid return trip to collect us.Peter • 20.

I made a mistake and booked an extra day, arriving to pick up my car a day late. The staff was very friendly, especially our driver Robert who picked us up.
I wasn't able to get the car I originally picked out but the one I was provided worked for us!
I would recommend Nordic Car Rental to my friends and I would definitely use them again in the future.
Fantastic. Great service and great people. I would recommend Nordic to my friends and would use them again on my next trip to Iceland.Dylan • 14. Aug 2018 Rented a Suzuki SX4 from Nordic Car Rental in August 2018
All went well. There were some misunderstandings with the transfer from airport to car rental office, but all worked out very good afterward.Sergejs • 14. Aug 2018 Rented a Suzuki Jimny from Nordic Car Rental in August 2018
The car was absolutely perfect for our needs. It was in great shape and road very well with good tires which is very important for Iceland. Having the extra insurances such as sand and ash and gravel included also gave us peace of mind. The staff at the office was courteous and very helpful, the rebate on gas was appreciated and pick-up and drop-off at the airport went off without a hitch!Christopher • 12.

My experience was good--the staff seemed a little overwhelmed when we showed up, and we were initially given a manual car after booking an automatic. However, the person at the counter was able to remedy the error. The rental worked out well.Margaret • 10. Aug 2018 Rented a Hyundai i10 from Nordic Car Rental in July 2018
Great car, great condition, great for icelandic travel and environment
We also had a great experience with Northbound and Nordic car rental customer service. They were quick to resolve any issues we had.
The rental was a breeze. I picked up from the Reykjavik office. No pressure tactics to sell extra insurance. The car was in great shape. They gave me enough time to note all the scratches and scuffs before I got the car, so I wouldn't be held responsible. I took my time. I used the car for 4 days on F-roads without any issues (it was certified for F-roads). I was surprised at how much beating this car must have got over it's 105,000km life, and yet was performing impeccably and smoothly without feeling like a clunker at all. Almost like new. I returned in Keflavik airport. They checked quickly. Didn't even ask me to explain all the scratches, which were pre-existing. I was out in 5 mins. They shuttled me to the airport within 10 mins of waiting. All in all, I would highly recommend this company without hesitation. It's what I would go straight to on my second trip. Beware, there are other companies out there who try to fleece you by charging you for damage that was pre-existing. The rental business out there isn't as professional as the US, in general. That's why I'm pleased to have done business with Nordic. Northbound only seems to work with companies like Nordic, so I wouldn't look elsewhere. I highly recommend Nordic (also known as City Car rental), and I highly recommend Northbound.Vijesh • 07. Aug 2018 Rented a Suzuki Vitara from Nordic Car Rental in August 2018
Our Trip to Iceland was impromptu. So we had just about 1.5 Months left before the trip starts & searching the car rental was scary. As we learned the importance of various insurance the car rental was turning out to be costlier & costlier. That is when I came across a post to check this rental company. The price they were offering was unbelievable. But there were other cheap rentals too in the market with terrible reviews. This is were Northbound & its Nordic Car Rental stood out. They had excellent & clean reviews with a very very good track record. Additionally all the possible car insurance was included. They don't have their office right at the airport but they do offer a pickup & drop at desired destination with a small additional cost. Even with this additional cost the price they offered was a total winner. Th pickup was right on time & the whole experience with their car was equally good as mentioned in earlier reviews. No hidden fees charged, no fooling of customers. I highly recommend them.Ashish • 02. Aug 2018 Rented a Hyundai i20 from Nordic Car Rental in June 2018
Car had scratches from all sides, when lady at the desk asked me to mark all scratches I did not know what to do. But I just marked about 50 X on whole of the car. I got car with low tyre pressure, so I had to go to tank station to fill air in it. But my trip was without any problems, car was ok. Renter let me return car 1 hour later than ordered.

We had an absolutely great experience with Nordic Rental Car, from the ease of booking the vehicle, to the airport shuttle, to picking up the car.

The car rental pickup location was super convenient (a big plus for us), the price was competitive (and included more protection in the insurance package than other companies), the car was great (though it could use new wiper blades), and the service was prompt.

Since I chose not to upgrade my cell phone before traveling, I wasn't able to use it upon arrival. This caused some confusion at the start while we waited for an hour to be picked up at the terminal, trying to decide if we should rent a taxi to get to the car rental office because there were no phones at the airport to call the company and my only option for communication at that point (6am) was email. That was a confusing start to our vacation.
We were eventually picked up by a very nice and informative person and set us right on the road in a very clean economy car. We were very happy with the car and service. On the plane ride in, we decided to add on the mobile wifi, and it was the single most important decision of our trip. We had planed to see and do it all in 9 days, staying in AirBnB's along the way, and we simply would not have have made our itinerary if we didn't have exact mapping and research/review capabilities along the way. Our check back in and drive back to the airport took about 1 minute to get on the road. I would recommend Northbound and use their services again.
We rented online from Nordic; everything was very smooth. We were met at the airport with no waiting at all & no confusion or difficulty. Got the car we expected, did not have to re-review coverage, etc. The car was not new, as we had known, and had a few dings; we had zero problems with documenting those & getting on the road. We similarly had no problem on returning it. Very good experience.Meghen • 20. Jun 2018 Rented a Hyundai i10 from Nordic Car Rental in June 2018

Nordic Car Rental was great. I arrived to airport early and they dispatched a pickup when I called to let them know. I was in and out and on my way to the Blue Lagoon so quickly which is so much better than some big car rental agencies that I have used in the past like Enterprise and Hertz. The car ran great. The GPS was top notch and I only had 1 problem location, but it was so rural, that isn't the fault of the GPS. The Gas cards associated with the Rental really helped out but there was 1 location that wouldn't take it. Also, because I think it was "super" rural. I would totally rent from Nordic Car again. The Price was fair, and they got me to the airport with time to spare before my flight back to the US. They also give you a packet with all the info you need in the case of an emergency or problem with the vehicle, but I never needed it.Christopher • 13.

This company is amazing and I'm so happy I found it. I was able to get an SUV (a must for Iceland) for cheaper than a sedan with any of the major rental companies which in itself is a win.

Il Land cruiser noleggiato aveva 200.000 km ma ci ha portato in giro per l'Islanda senza il minimo problema. Il prezzo è molto conveniente rispetto alle altre agenzie di noleggio e non abbiamo avuto inconvenienti. La macchina non era molto pulita all"interno e appena glielo abbiamo fatto notare non hanno perso tempo e l'hanno lucidata a dovere.

Overall, pleased with the service, vehicle and price compared to other companies. All employees were responsive.
Room for improvement, phone number printed on confirmation that someone would actually answer. Check-In Rep was happy to provide direct dial phone number to rental office, but that did not help me when trying to contact the office from the airport on my arrival.
To be given a printed receipt of final transaction. Rep was not able to print a receipt and made hand-written notes on my contract with the "close-out" codes from his computer terminal.
Would I use this company again, yes.
I chanced it with this cheap rental, and it worked out great. The pickup and return process was easy (even after I was late out of my flight and missed the initial pickup from the airport). There were a few dings from rocks that were noted in the beginning so make sure to examine the car before leaving. The car worked as expected, and we drove it over both paved roads and some gravel roads. This is a small car with low clearance, so make sure you're trying to avoid the big potholes on gravel roads.Theresa • 06. Aug 2018 Rented a Hyundai i20 from Nordic Car Rental in June 2018
The car was quite used but did a good job. Nevertheless, it would have been great if the missing back self would have been replaced because without it everyone passing by can see what's in the luggage space.
I've valued the automatic gearbox and the speed control very much. That has made driving in the hilly Icelandic landscape much more comfortable and allowed me to catch a glimpse of the lovely landscape now and then instead of focussing on the speed indicator.
Great experience! The car was well-maintained and clean. Took us all the way around Ring Road without a hassle. Staff was very friendly.Riley • 22. Jul 2018 Rented a Suzuki SX4 from Nordic Car Rental in July 2018

Excellent service. Yoey picked us up at airport. The car was fine. We felt it was a basic vehicle. Perfect for the roads we anticipated in Iceland.

Great welcome of our women driver at our arrival from the airport to the agency even if we ´ve waited half an hour at the airport. The car was meeting all the expectations dealing with our reservation. For Iceland I think it’s way better Not to get a totally new car, but a little bit used. To drop off the car we were close to be in trouble because we didn’t double check the dropoff hour forecasted at our reservation as on the voucher paper it’s written the agency is 24h opened which was not the case. But hopefully for us the employee was way early to open the agency and everything ran well finally.Nicolas • 14. May 2018 Rented a Suzuki SX4 from Nordic Car Rental in May 2018

I hope you improve upon your pick up service. We had to wait for 1.5 hours at the airport.. At the location there were other customers shared similar experience. I had to call 3-4 times and response was always, someone should be there shortly.
I had to check the car for damages by myself. It's kinda strange, but ok. I have checked one Duster and there was car jack missing. Then I got another car and again I had to check it... The car and price were ok, but nobody told me any tips at like they do at Keflavik office. Also, nobody told me about the discount chip on a keyring.Tomas • 16.

The car was great, pricing was better than most, and insurance was included. Great. These are cars that are used hard in harsh environments by people who may not know how to drive properly in these conditions, so it wasn't surprising that they were not in immaculate condition. It got us everywhere we wanted to go, so a job well done. Great company and good customer service.Kevin • 08. Sep 2018 Rented a Dacia Duster from Nordic Car Rental in August 2018
Everything was good other than that we had a couple of service-related warning lights come on during the trip. One for slightly low tire pressure and the other for an oil change. This could presumably have been avoided with regular service checks in advance of renting the vehicle. Customer service was very good and everything otherwise went as expected/planned.Christopher • 26. Aug 2018 Rented a Suzuki Vitara from Nordic Car Rental in August 2018
Nordic Car Rental was a great company to work with. I could easily choose a vehicle on-line and received all of the needed information @ airport pick up. The driver was not there when we arrived but I phoned the company and he had completed his transportation of another passenger and arrived soon after my phone call. There were no extra expenses. Renting cars in Iceland is not cheap but our car was in wonderful working order. We are happy with our choice. We did not drive on any "F" roads and that made our car choice easier.James • 25.

The pick up at the airport was a bit confusing - they said someone would wait for me with my name on a piece of paper, but in the end, I had to look for someone with a sign of a couple of different logo's of different car rental companies, one of them being Nordic Car Rental. The guy had a list with at least twenty names, but mine wasn't one of them. Anyway, the guy was very nice and took me to the office of Nordic Car Rental. There was confusion about which car was reserved for me. After half an hour, they gave me a Suzuki Vitara instead of the promised Mitsubishi Outlander. Apart from that, we had no problems with the car, and drop of in Reykjavik went very smoothly. In less than five minutes, I was ready to leave.
I rented a car several times in Iceland, and this was definitely the best deal we ever found.
It was really good except that you couldn't provide the car I had booked when I arrived. I had to wait the morning after and I had to wait among new custumerswaiting as well. And you still had no car for me ! Because I got really angry waiting and realizing you had probably practiced overbooking on me, the team finally managed to find one. I had to come back tothe office 10 min later as my window (I had put down) culdn't get up back and was all out of the door, no more in its housing. So I had to wait around one more hour to get it fixed and then, I could not use it normally during my trip. Despite all this, I really recommend this company as it a 24/24 car rental with nice and warm team, family state of mind, you are serious and concerned about customers. You should take a better care about cars for little things or big ones as my window problem. If I come back to Iceland (I will that's sure), I will rent a car by your company.

Overall good experience. Had a few hiccups. No-one was at the airport with sign when we arrived. Had to call and they sent us the information. Also the car was a bit old and the usb did not work... which meant we could not charge phones or use music from the phone. The rental process and return was fast. Had to wait over 30 minutes for shuttle after returning the car though.Vikas • 16. Aug 2018 Rented a Suzuki Vitara from Nordic Car Rental in August 2018

Although the car model on the ad was correct, the image of the car rental was different to the car we received. This was disappointing. We were picked up 20-30mins late. Otherwise, we had a positive experience. A quick and easy pick up and drop off - no hassles. I think it would be easier to have a full tank of petrol upon pick up rather than 15%, and then be required to provide a full tank upon drop-off, it's an easier resolution.Rick • 25.

When I picked up the car the customer service was excellent! When I dropped car off, the service was not great. When I received the car It stated that the car was 40% full of gas. when I drove off I had to get gas because it was almost empty. I paid 8.840 kr to get me a full tank so I could be get to the airport. I brought the car back 1/2 full which would be 50% filled. The front desk woman seemed a little pissed at me, not sure why. Anyway I had to prove that I filled the car up after I received car. It was uncomfortable and highly annoying.Rebecca • 09. Jul 2018 Rented a Suzuki SX4 from Nordic Car Rental in June 2018
The jeep was quite old and rusty. Closed air vents did not prevent outside air from coming in which made it extremely deafening at times. As the doors didn't shut properly, I constantly had to repeatedly slam the doors to ensure they were closed. The jeep constantly indicated that the doors were open on the unpaved roads despite my pulling over to check the car doors. The positive point about the junky dented jeep was that I didn't concern myself if the road conditions were poor or about the gravel scratches as they would have blended in with the rest of the car.
Apart from the state of the car, I have to say that the help and the advice I received, the lovely people I dealt with will have me as a returning customer.
The car was older but functional. The oil light did come on while driving but the staff was very helpful in fixing the situation.Richard • 30. Jun 2018 Rented a Hyundai i10 from Nordic Car Rental in June 2018
Good. Car had 143000 kms but prIced lower than most. Battery was weak and needed recharging when I left lights on during dinner.Bruce • 29. Jun 2018 Rented a Dacia Duster from Nordic Car Rental in June 2018
My experience went well. The price was by far the cheapest I could find and the hotel pick up service was great. Don't know of other companies doing such a hotel pickup service. Drop off near airport also went fine, even though drop off location is in the middle of a garage. The staff, especially at the Reykjavik branch, were friendly. On the downside, the car provided was quite old, with old wheels and a small dent on the front and wasn't properly cleaned....I imagine that this is why it was so much cheaper...nevertheless, all went fine and no technical problems were encountered. Because of the lower price and pick up service I would probably rent with themagain.
Long Pick up at airport, our flight and baggage came in late. Was initially given a manual but eventually fixed to automatic and then after that everything was great.Aaron • 25. Jun 2018 Rented a Hyundai i10 from Nordic Car Rental in June 2018
The car was pretty beaten up, the engine light was on the entire time, the Bluetooth didn't work for music so no music for an entire week of driving. Staff were friendly enough (for Iceland) but the check-in took FOREVER, over two hours from pick up at the airport to us driving. Price-wise, it was good (for Iceland).Jessi • 06.

It takes a too much time to pick up the car in office.
I left the car like they said me in the office, but in office probably forgot their instructions.
My experience was ok. The low price was why I booked, and the good news is that we got a car that was able to take us around Iceland safely. The bad news is that there were some setbacks from the start. The driver who was to pick us up from the airport was not there when we got out (our flight had arrived late), and did not pick up the phone when I called 4-5 times. I eventually had to call the booking office and they got ahold of the driver. When I arrived at the office, the car I reserved was gone, so I got a much older car with some issues (no rear windsheld wiper, windows that struggled to go up/down). Not one to dwell on it, we took the car and enjoyed our stay with minimal issues. However, returning the car was also an issue, we arrived at 6am as instructed and no one was in the office. 2 other groups were also waiting. It took about 6 calls to finally reach someone, in total we waited about a half hour for them to arrive, and then another 20 minutes for them to rent a car to an arriving passenger before driving us to the airport. We made the flight, but it was tighter than is should have been.Amy • 05. Jul 2018 Rented a Suzuki SX4 from Nordic Car Rental in June 2018
A bit confusing was to wait quite long in the airport and pay for the extra taxi service from the airport to the true rental station by person. And self-check of the car was also unusual. But the car was running well, no complaints.Jaan • 19. Sep 2018 Rented a Hyundai i10 from Nordic Car Rental in September 2018
I was quite satisfied with Nordic Car Rental, I liked that renting and returning the car went quickly and that you were nice to us. However, there were two things I wish never happened. First - when we waited at the airport for someone to pick us up, there was nobody there and when we called your 24/7 phone number, nobody answered. Fortunately after 30 minutes of waiting and hoping, you came for us. And second - one of the tires was totally worn out, which we didn't know, but we expected that you would check the car so it would be safe for your renter. After the tire broke and we saw how it looked, we realized how dangerous it was to drive on it! But thank you that you looked at the tire and agreed with us and we didn't have to pay you for a new one.Karla • 17. Sep 2018 Rented a Dacia Duster from Nordic Car Rental in September 2018
The car was fine, as was the experience, although the directions for pick-up were a bit confusing. The Northbound directions said to look for someone holding a sign with my name, but in actuality there was someone with a sign that had lots of company names. We got worried and started off a little shaky. Very friendly van driver, though, and overall fine. Nordic Car Rental a bit disorganized at the office, but again, fine.Chelsea • 14.

The pick up from the airport was well managed.
The car needed maintenance. There was damage to the driver’s side door which should have been fixed before it was rented out.
Pickup was a mess. The facility was under staffed. We waited more than an hour to get our car, which really sucked when we were tired from a 6 hour plane flight.
Giving the car back was hassle free which was a pleasant surprise.
We were upgraded to a suzuky gran vitara which however got problems after 4 days. We received another car which was ok after however having had to call all day in order to reach emergency services, no one answered the phone. After they did, the other people in the company did not know what was agreed, the exchange was nog put into the computer etc, communication within the company seems unexisting. Kn the west fjords we got a flat tire and were unable to undo the spare tire because of rust. We received the message from the emergency service that t there was no service in the west fjords! Sometjing that is nowwhere in the contract and we were not informed of. We were kind of
Laughed at on the phone, the operater told us to jump on it! As though we did not try that before calling. Afterwards the office was so kind not to charge us for a new tire since the tire we eventually ducceeded to buy is not new and not the same size. We
Were glad to find a tire thanks to some tourists who helped us out since We were left to ourselves without help and not happy..
The cars are old ant really reliable.
The service was good and the booking process went smoothly. The car did not function well. There was a problem (maybe with the wheel bearing) that made a terrible noise for most of our trip. Also, the interior lights of the car didn't work and one of the chargers didn't work either.Elizabeth • 09. Sep 2018 Rented a Hyundai ix35 from Nordic Car Rental in August 2018
We had to wait more than 30 minuets in the airport for pickup. When the pickup service finally arrived the guy laughed at us because we in his opinion were to demanding?
The car had to many defaults. Windows in drivers seat was not working, doors were not closing proberly, and licens plates were not secured properly to the car with screws. We lost a licens plate while driving on dirt roads and had to pay 10.000 kr. I really thing this was unfair but has to sign and agreement because we had a plain to catch.
