    By a renting a car, me and my partner saved so much money on travel. We did the golden circle tour ourselves without booking an excursion and going on the coach which coast £200 plus, we just got some snacks and hit the road (the drive around the golden circle tour, one of the best drives of my life. The scenary was amazing, we could stop off when ever we wanted, we could leave whenever we wanted without having to wait for people to get back onto the coach. Night times, we put a location in our phones and drove around looking for the northern lights. Was definitely worth getting a car

    You need a car to get around Iceland. Trips with tour companies are overpriced and not good value for money, in my opinion. Remember that the top speed on dual carriageways is 90 kph (about 55mph), with some urban areas being just 30kph (less than 19mph). There is pretty much zero tolerance on Drinking and Driving, with just one of the local standard (weak at 2.3%) beers putting you over the limit. Thankfully, we had kids with us, so I didn't drink at all and only found out later how stringent the law was with regards to D&D.

    If you're planning on doing and self-driven travelling in Iceland (highly recommended, unless you absolutely insist on a tour package that may provide a coach service), then a car rental is essential. You can get most places (at least the touristic places) in a small vehicle, and a 4x4 isn't essential. You'll definitely enjoy the experience much more if you rent!

    If you want to travel around iceland, a car is almost essential, especially in winter. Definitely spend some time searching for the hidden info on deposits and see if you can increase your credit limit accordingly.

    We had a wonderful visit to your beautiful country. The people are very friendly and good-natured. We thoroughly enjoyed every place we visited and would highly recommend the adventure to other people who are thinking of a vacation there. We planned our own vacation for about a year ahead of time which turned out to be a real asset. If you have the time and are comfortable about driving in a foreign country, I would recommend renting a car as it gives you the opportunity to tour with-out any time restraints.

    Definitely rent a 4X4 SUV, even the paved roads are like gravel roads depending on the point of interest. The rain, snow and ice wreak havoc on the roads and we could not visit many places because we had a front wheel drive sedan. You need a car with climate control and heated seats, get a automatic unless you're really good with stick shift. Lastly, the car rental places look at every little scratch so make sure to take lots of pictures when you rent and take a good 10-15 min to inspect it all around before you drive away with the car.

    Expect sky high prices in Iceland. I bought a small beer for £7, .Fish soup cost £15, a small fish & chips was £12.50. So get self-catering accommodation and feed yourself from the supermarkets. I didn't come across a sand storm in the south of the country but was warned about them, and they can affect your insurance cover.

    In order to do any sight seeing in Iceland, a rental car is almost a must. Everything is so far, that without a car we wouldn’t have seen anything. Keflavík is a very small part of Iceland and doesn’t have much to see during the week. The nightlife begins on the weekends.

    Great to rent a car if youre going to do the ring road in iceland, a 2wd will suffice ( in the summer at least ) and go get full coverage so that youll have a peace of mind when driving on the gravel roads in iceland (which can be bumpy)

    A car is the only reasonable way to visit Iceland, so yes. Car rentals in general and also fuel are very expensive though. But considering that a shuttle from and back to the airport (and everything else in Iceland) is also very expensive, a car is a convenient option. Discovercarhire should take notice that Keflavik is Reykjavik's international airport, and include Keflavik's cars in Reykjavik's searches. When I seached Reykjavik I got "no cars available".

    Renting a car in Iceland was a good choice. I planned to have my phone work with my cell phone provider so we had google maps. We drove the golden circle, to the south waterfalls and black beaches -- really everywhere on our own and it was really easy. We saw many tour buses at our destinations and are happy with the choice that we went on our own versus with a group.
