Customer Ratings and Latest Reviews
Because we want to make sure each review listed here is left by a real customer, we don’t have an option to post a review here. Instead, we ask each and every customer to leave a review after they return their rental. This way, you know that all reviews are authentic, verified, and trustworthy.
Pros: The replacement car though not 4x4 was in good condition unlike the original 4x4 car given to me.
Cons: The mileage of the rental car should be restricted.
Pros: I did not receive any service from Northern Lights.
Cons: No transparency as to who I am actually renting from. The vehicle I rented was provided by Icerental4x4!!!!!
Pros: Got the car we requested
Cons: On pick up, there were about 10 people tot who needed transport to the rental company, only 8 seats available in the bus. So had to drive back to airport to pick up my familiy
Pros: Absolutely nothing rude staff late for everything gave us damaged car and asked us to pay for it
Cons: they do not give you check even if you ask them
Cons: There was quite a delay being picked up at the airport. I don't know if this is normal or due to weather or something. No reason was given.
Pros: They were welcoming at the airport, explained everything very well and accepted that we had excess insurance so did not push their own. We of course took care of the car, and on return they checked it over quickly and confirmed there were no issues and thanked us.
Cons: Many of the winter tyre studs had worn/fallen out and the windscreen wipers were not great. Normal rental.
Pros: Good response to emails. Straight forward collection process
Pros: Very friendly staff
Cons: We waited at the airport for about 20 minutes for the shuttle.
Pros: Fast, efficient, helpful and informative about driving in Iceland.
Cons: Tried to upsell insurance unnecessarily. Check the tried well when collecting the car and take lots of photos of the condition of the body work.
Pros: Efficiency once at rental site
Cons: Delay getting from airport to rental site, and minibus not big enough to take all waiting customers
Pros: Friendly guy bringing us to the car rental
Cons: Slow, rude service. Kept us waiting for over an hour to get back to the airport despite telling them we were running out of time. Refused to give out receipts when leaving car back. The rental car was full of marks and chips on the windscreen. Pieces hanging from undercarriage. Definitely take a video before leaving. Place just had a dodgy vibe.
Pros: Car mostly worked as it should.
Cons: Windshield wipers were pretty bad.
Pros: the check-in was very quick, car was clean and exactly the model we booked
Cons: the pick up was a little confusing as when we exited we couldn't find anyone with the sign. Then the person appeared within 10 minutes
Pros: Efficient, friendly and good value.
Pros: Agents were nice and friendly, rental was cheap, despite lots of cosmetic damage to car it was nice to drive and clean inside.
Cons: Collection was a mess. The instructions did not meet reality, no one was waiting for me with my name on a board. Company name on the booking was wrong. So by the time we worked it out, I had to travel alone as not enough space in shuttle bus for my husband. Made me very worried! Car missing a brake light bulb - told it was fine. G Upon returning the car, the agent thought dirt splashed were scratches. Not the hassle you want really, but was sorted in the end with a wipe of a handy cloth.
Pros: Very nice staff that explained many details
Pros: Spolehlivost. Platilo všechno, co se domluvilo.
Cons: Vysoký depozit.
Cons: The passenger door window seemed to be off track. The "trunk" was super hard to close you had to slam it. When I needed customer service there was no answer. Then I was charged over $1,000 for a wind blown door and they told me Discover insurance would cover it even though they don't. We held the doors everyone and have no proof it wasn't us, but based on the other car issues it was likely already broke. I corker fight at the service desk cuz even though we got there 4 hours early no time
Pros: They know the insurance from discover cars covers everything so they don´t try to sell extra insurance.
Cons: Everything was good
Pros: Absolutely nothing
Cons: They picked me up over an hour after I arrived in Iceland. When I called them about them being late, they said it would take 20 minutes, then they arrived 40 minutes later. And my travel companions couldn't join the pick up, so I had to pick them up after getting the car. At the car pick up point, they gave me the wrong car. So that took a long time again to get the correct car. After getting back, with a few small scratches on the window, I had to pay 1000 euros. Etc etc etc
Pros: They were extremely responsive to my requests.
Cons: There were minor problems with the car, but nothing major.
Pros: Kind people
Cons: We had to wait 20 minutes for someone to show up at the airport. You have to have an insane amount of money on your creditcard for the insurance or pay 60-100 euro extra. Also when we brought back te car they tried to convince some door was damaged but it was clearly it was already like that when we picket up the car. They were “kind” to let us go with just a good review but that’s not how it works. The car was fine but when we drove uphill or pulled up fast the car started shaking weirdly.
Pros: Great service. We returned the car the night before because we had An early flights and booked A hotel nearby with transfer to the airport. The agent just said i will drive you back to the hotel, thats good service. Everything was good! And they work 24/7.
Pros: Discovery promotes buying insurance before. Northen lights pressures you into buying insurance from them or else they will hold 2800€ on your credit card for 2 weeks. If you buy the insurance FROM THEM they will not do that. Also they don't check the car for damage witj you before. They send you to do a film yourself but when you return the car they even with a flaslight under the car!
Pros: Car cleanliness and equipment for cost of rental
Cons: Charge on credit card despite insurance.
Pros: friendly and helpful people, absolutely no problems with the car
Pros: fast and friendly
Cons: the rep encouraged us to rent a GPS so we did , then when we got in the car we realized it HAD a GPS built in. she gave us a wifi modem to use as compensation.
Cons: Charged us 3k for repairing a door damaged through wind damage that definitely costs less. In addition, would not let us leave the rental place and catch our flight until we paid. Overall 0/10, will never be renting here again, and will not be using discover cars nor recommending it to anyone
Pros: Didn’t provide the service I expectef
Cons: In timely, took far too many days to respond to emails. Customer service was shocking!
Pros: Very nice people and excellent customer service
Cons: Drop off took too long; also, the cars are all quite used. I didn’t feel safe in the first car they gave me. The second was better, but wipers weren’t very good and there was a crack in the windshield.
Pros: They were flexible and able to accomoddate a larger vehicle than we booked originally.
Cons: Nothing on the service but the SUV was very old. 225K kilometers. Althought it drove well.
Pros: Friendly staff, reasonably new car in excellent condition
Cons: Waited 45 mins on returning the car for the shuttle to the airport, which is advertised to operate every 15 minutes. As such we had to rush through the airport.
Cons: the car was very old and quite dirty, it had some problems with sensors, so was beeping all the time, didn't have 5 doors, so was very uncomfortable to use. The child's seat was barely holding together, one strap just came off.
Cons: the car was awful. old, broken, hard to drive and very expensive
Pros: Very friendly staff, perfect conditions, great Service, appointements in time
Pros: everything went fast
Cons: seat heating didn't work
