It’s all very well for us to tell you that there isn’t a better destination in the world to discover by car. Or that driving around Iceland is so special that you’ll be thinking about getting back on the road even when you are face to face with the almighty Godafoss Waterfall… But then you’d only have our word to go on.

Read on to find everything you need to know about hiring a car in Iceland, including payments, booking, cancellations, extras and insurance.
Driving in a car that is not your own, on roads that you’ve never driven down before, in some cases under harsh weather conditions, can be as painful as a new pair of shoes after a full-day hike! That’s why preparation is key if you want your Iceland road trip to play out as smoothly as Michael Jackson’s ‘Smooth Criminal’.
Now let’s take a look at the main things you’ll want to be aware of as you zoom out of the garage in your Iceland car rental!
Back to basics. Let’s kick things off with an overview of Iceland’s essential traffic laws: you drive on the right side of the road and overtake on the left. The speed limit around the city is 30-50 km/h, seatbelts are compulsory and headlights must be on at all times.
Size really does matter. Make sure you hire the right car based on the type of road trip you have in mind. Thinking about sticking to Reykjavik and other urban areas (or even the Ring Road)? Then hire a car in Reykjavik! However, if you plan on journeying further out into the mountains, you’ll want a big, bad and brute 4x4 hire that can overcome any challenge that the island can throw at it!
Go where you please (kind of). Iceland is yours to explore but you’ll need to do so respectfully. What does that mean? Basically, you can’t just stop your car in the middle of the road if you fall in love with the view, and you can’t go off road with your vehicle on a whim. Doing so can lead to big fines.
Better safe than sorry. Iceland is full of potential road hazards, even more so if you plan on exploring the F-roads and venturing into the Highlands. From harsh weather conditions to animals in the middle of the road… Make sure you purchase an insurance policy that covers you against any damage that you are likely to incur!

Iceland is indeed a great destination to choose for a once-in-a-lifetime roadtrip, but to make sure everything runs smoothly you’ll want to read up on Icelandic traffic laws, weather conditions and road types, among other things.
