F-roads (highland roads)
Generally rental vehicles are not allowed to drive on Icelandic F-roads (highland roads). Each rental company can however make an exception to this rule and permit their customers to go through specific routes.
Crossing rivers in Iceland requires experience that most travelers do not have. It is therefore not allowed by rental vehicles in Iceland. Some rivers such as Krossá in Þórsmörk are particularly dangerous.
The minimum rental period is one day (24 hours). When the drop is one hour or more after the pick-up time, it is regarded as a full day.
Pick-up and drop-off services
For customers arriving or departure at Keflavik International Airport all of our partners offer pick-up and drop-off services, normal additional cost for that service may vary between partners. For customers in the Reykjavik areas staying at hotels or other accommodation our partners also offer pick up and drop off services for additional charge.
