A Good Company to Hire From in Iceland

Good selection of cars, and the price was competitive, not the cheapest, but competitive.
A car is a car, but I read lots of reviews which made me discount the cheaper rivals, that was one of three reasons I hired from here. The second reason was the transparent, levels of insurance cover they offer. The rest were vague, or missing something that you would expect in a 'comprehensive' zero deductible insurance package. The third was the mobile data dongle add on, and boy did I use that! It's not available with a lot of rentals, which made me keep coming back to this company. I used the dongle in my hotel too, so I had personal, 4G wifi 24/7

I hired a Jiminy 4 x 4, but was given a Duster 4 x 4, as it was a safer car given the weather and road conditions. That's a really good plus point for this company.

Pick up, had good clear instructions to follow to catch the car hire bus to the rental office, The administrative side of pick up was smooth and informative too.

The drop off was what I chose this company for, and avoided others because of. Iceland car rentals are truthful about the damage a car already has (labelled on the documentation and pointed out on pick up), and do not claim damage has occurred during your hire. This is even more important a point if you are not taking out extra insurance.

The only downside was waiting for the car hire bus to pick me up and take me back to the terminal. There's no clear bus stop outside the rental offices. (a three sided shelter would be a great addition) It was raining, but when it did arrive, the driver took me straight there as I was the only one on the bus.

When I go back to Iceland I'll definitely check them out first, as long as this company stay competitive they will get my business!
