The Liability Waiver reduces the self-risk/deductible amount for any damage covered by our insurances to zero. This includes CDW/SCDW, GP, TP and SAAP and is subjected to the terms and conditions of the Rental Agreement. Excluded are any damages not covered by insurances as stated in Article 29 and 32 in the Rental Agreement and terms and conditions.
Keep in mind that this is not extra insurance but an option for our renters to waive their liability in case of any damages to the rental car during the rental time. This allows our renters to have a carefree experience with Blue Car Rental while enjoying our beautiful island.

If you need that extra bit of space for your camping gear and luggage it´s ideal to rent a roof box. The roof boxes we offer is a Thule Pacific 200. They are 410 liters with a dimension of 175x85x45 and can carry 50 kg. Only available for 7 seated vehicles. Rates are per day 3.500 ISK
It really depends on the car you are renting. The golden rule is that if you are renting the smallest option you can fit 2-3 medium sized luggage, medium-sized options carry 3-4 luggage and the larger options carry 4-5 luggage. This of course also depends on the size and shape of the luggage.
Keep in mind that when you rent a 7 seated vehicle and you have 7 passengers the luggage space is a lot lesser, so you only fit around 2-3 medium sized luggage depending on the size of the rental car.
Our 9 seated options, however, fit 8 pieces of luggage – no matter how many passengers!
For more information and pictures of the rental cars and the luggage space for estimation click here.
All our rental cars are equipped with studded winter tires from 1st of November until 15th. of April each year. Studded tires are not allowed on a different period according to Icelandic laws and regulation.

All our rental cars are equipped with heated seats for the cold Icelandic winters.
