Credit card payment is the best option to pay for your rental vehicle when you book online. Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Union Pay, Discovery, Diners Club and JCB are valid.
The renter may also be able to book with a debit card, if you have the online payment option available on it.
The renter, or someone travelling with the renter, also needs to submit a credit card on arrival when he picks up the vehicle. We require the renters to submit credit card but if you only have debit card we accept debit cards with a 16 digit number on the front.
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 dimension of 175x85x45 and can carry 50 kg. Rates are per day 2.500 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 luggages, medium sized options carry 3-4 luggages and the larger options carry 4-5 luggages. This of course also depends on the size and shape of the luggages.
Keep in mind that when you rent a 7 seated vehicle and you have 7 passangers the luggage space is a lot lesser so you only fit around 2-3 medium sized luggages depending on the size of the rental car.
Our 9 seated options however fit 8 luggages – no matter how many passangers!
