Our Service

Along with our top quality vehicles and flexible travel arrangements we offer ways for you to customize your rental experience. You can tack on an additional driver to share the wheel, a GPS to stay on track and coverage protections for more peace of mind. We also have child seats for babies, toddlers and small children. Since many of Iceland's main tourist attractions are located outside of the city center, much of your driving time will be in the rural outskirts of the capital. Consider taking advantage of deals on optional extras to help you ensure safer and more enjoyable travels. Here is an idea of what you can include to your car rental in Reykjavik.

Traffic Information

Reykjavik continues to be one of the smallest capitals in the world at a population of just over 100,000. As such, traffic in the capital city is almost nonexistent with many roads and highways leading drivers to Reykjavik's main neighborhoods and outlying cities. Route 1, or the Ring Road, will take you all the way around the island for a fantastic view of both the urban and rural parts of Ireland. With a rather small local population, most likely you will encounter tourists on Iceland's highways en route to enjoy the magnificent natural wonders of Reykjavik and it surrounds. It is also a good idea to download the emergency 112 app in case you should run into any difficulties while out on the road.

Sixt Sightseeing Tips

Despite misconceptions surrounding the name, Iceland is not in fact a floating iceberg. With a similar climate to other Northern European countries, the majority of Iceland's landscape is actually made up of mountains and volcanoes. Understandably then, much of Iceland's tourist appeal stems from its natural beauty and plethora of outdoor activities. Some of the most popular locations include visits to nearby icebergs, waterfalls, and beaches at Skogafoss, Gullfoss, and Jokulsarlon Lagoon. The Blue Lagoon spa in the center of Reykjavik is the most famous location to sit back and treat yourself to a relaxing day in the geothermal spa. If you find yourself visiting between September and April, make sure to look up into the sky and take in the natural colorful phenomenon of the Northern Lights.

Business Travel

The largest economy in Iceland, Reykjivak was also found in 2007 to be the richest country in the world. After a decline in the wake of the 2008 recession, the government has worked to improve its construction. Luckily, by harnessing its natural resources in geothermal and hydroelectric power, Iceland provides 85% of energy with renewable systems. Iceland's biggest export continues to be focused around marine resources providing a large portion of the world's fish needs. Though its economy is still rather small, its mixed economy and minimal government interference make it an interesting point of interest for trade. Many business related happenings take place at the Harpa Concert Hall and Conference Centre. This elegant waterfront structure opened in 2011 and hosts many events year round. A number of modern conference rooms and host of amenities are available for a diverse range of events.

While it took a while to get our car, it was made worthwhile. Our Toyota Yaris got us around all the sites we wanted to see in an economical fashion. The return trip was efficient and troublefree.

Marcel S.

Returned our SUV today after a Road Trip and got a free drive with the luggage back to the Airport. Everything was fine and charged as aspected. Thanks to Jersey, very friendly employeer!

Emanuel V.

Everything was really good. They were so kind and clear. They help us to understand everything about the rent and about our car, with a lot of patience. The price was clear and fair. I suggest to everyone to rent here a car, if you need it

Clement L.

Rented a car for over a week. Pickup and drop off was very smooth and had no issues. During drop off we were served by Jersey who was very kind and even drove us back to the airport terminal with all our luggage! Would recommend.

The rental process was quick and the employees there were very helpful. I was happy with the Toyota I got with snow tires. The facility is nice and you can actually walk to it from the airport instead of taking a shuttle. The only Minus is how hard they try to upsell you on numerous things. I totally get why but still it’s a little too aggressive and a bit manipulative.

Jim C.

Great check-in experience with perfect support by James. All set to discover Iceland by winter thanks to the winterspike tires!
