Car hire in Reykjavik and Iceland

Photographers love Iceland, not only for the spectacular views of the Aurora Borealis, but also because the island by moonlight is a truly magical sight and unique to this small Arctic Circle island.

Keflavik Airport (also known as Reykjavik-Keflavik) is Iceland's main international passenger hub and is located 3.1 km or 2 miles due west from Keflavik town. It is also 50 km or 31 miles south-west of the capital city of Reykjavik.

If you are an experienced horse rider - or even if you have never ridden before - a wonderful way to see the country at close range, besides car rentals, is to hire a horse at the only riding stables in Iceland.

Located in Reykjavik, these horseback riding stables are a great fun day out for all the family. Another must see attraction is the Golden Waterfall (Gullfloss). This spectacular and natural waterfall can be seen up close, allowing visitors to feel the mist and spray from the rushing torrent of water. Driving is a great way to travel along the Icelandic coastline.

One of the most popular activities is whale watching by land, as whales visit the island almost all year round and are clearly visible from the shore. Whether you visit Iceland in the summer or the winter there are always activities to enjoy, from skiing to trekking.

No matter what type of activity you choose, renting a car is a great option for carrying all that extra equipment. Remember that Iceland's particular geographic location means that there is constant daylight during the summer months of June through September; equally, there is a distinct lack of daylight during the polar winter months.

Rental cars are the way to go for visitors to Iceland and the cheap car rental offered by Budget Car Hire is excellent value for money. You can book at our website simply by using the drop down menu.

If there is anything you would like to request, for example a particular make and model of vehicle, snow tyres, child safety seats, or sat nav, you can do so at the time of booking.

All Budget rent a car vehicles in Iceland come fully equipped with working heating systems - to face the Icelandic temperatures - and you can be assured that all Budget cars are regularly maintained and serviced.

Because Iceland has a superb range of ecological action, it is becoming extremely popular with visitors who are looking to try something a little different from the usual beach holiday.

Due to the fact that most Icelandic people travel by car the local public transport service, although networked, is not particularly frequent. Therefore, there is no better way to see the true majesty of volcano peaks and bubbling geysers than to drive.

Icelandic roads are not particularly busy, even in the capital city of Reykjavik, although there is a local rush hour, much like every other western country.

Possible traffic notwithstanding, you will soon discover driving in Iceland to be a relaxing and fun experience. You can visit the mineral water hot pools, or drive out to the volcanoes and along Iceland's superb coastline. Visitors will be amazed at the spectacular unspoiled beauty and indigenous wildlife of this small island.

Although driving around the country is not difficult, do be aware that certain mountain roads are fairly narrow so reduced speed and extra care is the order of the day. The speed limit in Iceland is 50 km or 31 mph in towns, and 90 km or 55 mph on main roads. Nevertheless, visitors who take advantage of our car hire service in Keflavik will enjoy the freedom of driving in a beautiful landscape.
