I'd just like to add my recommendation for IcelandCarRental (www.icelandcarrental.is).
I was the lead in a group of six, tasked with sorting car rental. After sifting through various web forums for reviews, I settled on IcelandCarRental as they seemed like a good mix of price and positive reviews. They definitely weren't the cheapest, but they weren't as pricey as some of the big name companies.
I booked well in advance, which I think gave me a bit of a discount too, perhaps 10% or so. I chose the Ford Explorer, and in the months leading up to the trip, made various changes to the booking (timing, pickup/drop-off location etc) which Hrannar kindly sorted out for me without any problems.
The car was dropped off to me at my hotel (free of charge) by the company's owner. A very nice chap, who I can't remember the name of! We went through the paperwork and then he actually sat down and gave me a quick chat about driving in Iceland, especially on the gravel ro
I recently visited Iceland for 2 weeks-
I recently visited Iceland for 2 weeks - travelling from Reykjavik via the Golden Circle to Snæfellsnes and on to the West Fjords. I've hired a lot of cars before through all the major companies but never tried a local firm before and I have to say, it was the best car hire I have ever experienced. Ieland car rental (http://www.icelandcarrental.is/) were cheaper than the International companies, but what really made them great was the personal service and flexibility. I'd booked the smalles car available, but they had none left so they upgraded me to a beautiful Suzuki Grand Vitara 4x4 - perfect for Iceland's rough roads! The owner of the company himself brought the car to where I was staying. The car itself was great - super comfortable, sturdy and reliable. I really enjoyed driving it. When we returned from our road trip we weren't due to stay in Reykjavik again but had assumed we'd have to drop the car off there, but instead, for just £20 the company collected it f
I can recommend you Iceland Car Rental-
From Trip advisor:
I can recommend you Iceland Car Rental (www.icelandcarrental.is). I rented a Suzuki this summer and it worked awesome. Friendly staff and the car was almost brand new. We were able to travel all around with no problems. I just have nice memories from this 2weeks tour.
Enjoy your trip in Iceland!
Hi there! We rented from Iceland Car Rental-
Hi there! We rented from Iceland Car Rental - they were very courteous(as everyone we encountered though!), and excellent customer service. Dropped off and picked up the car from the hotel.
We had a very good experience with Iceland Car Rental -
We had a very good experience with Iceland Car Rental (www.icelandcarrental.is). We hired a 4x4 for a week. They were very competitively priced, and allowed extras (delivery of the car to our accommodation, and two drivers instead of one) for very little cost, where most car hire companies charge the earth for anything non-standard. Of course, you only really get the measure of a company when something goes wrong; in this case we got a flat. We changed the wheel no trouble, but were concerned that they might use this as a pretext to charge us the full cost of a new tyre. In fact, they did not charge us. Our concerns that a cheap company might offer a substandard service proved completely unfounded, and I would not hesitate to use them again.

From Google reviews:
Iceland Car Rental was a great company for my husband and I who spent 2 weeks renting a truck in Iceland. They were very honest when they didn't necessarily have to be. A day after we got the truck we discovered some damage that we hadn't noticed before, and so we thought someone had hit us in the parking lot, which we would have had to pay for if that was the case. However, when we called the company, they verified the damage had already been there and it was not our problem to cover. We really appreciated their integrity, plus our car gave us no problems, even on some rough roads where 4 wheel drive is required!
