Frequently Asked Questions about Iceland 4x4 Car Rental Services

Accidents/Break downs

All our cars are thoroughly inspected and maintained between rentals to ensure safe and problem free rental experience. In the event of an accident or break down, regardless of circumstance and location, we will do our best to replace the car with another vehicle of similar standard or better within 24 hours of reported incident.

What documents do I need for renting a car

You need a valid driver’s licence, passport and a credit card. A credit card imprint will be taken at the start of all rentals for security reasons, even when a voucher covers the cost of the rental. This credit card imprint may be used to pay all extra charges as extra insurance, speeding and parking fines, damages or cost, other than specified in the contract, due to lessee's use of the car.

Do you offer extra insurance

Yes we offer optionally TP, GP, SCDW and SAAP (see terms).
