Important information about Reykjavik car hire

Reykjavik, the capital city of Iceland, boasts a rich historical charm and natural beauty. With rental cars in Reykjavik, you can go to the famous Hallgrimskirkja Church, Harpa, and the Perlan Museum of Iceland Natural Wonders. You may want to choose Ring Road (Rte. 1) as it connects a progression of natural attractions along the island's picturesque coastline.  The Ring Road is mainly paved, well-maintained, and runs around the coast, making it the ideal starting point for your trip in a car rental in Reykjavik. The road has two traffic lanes, but it expands with more lanes in large urban centers.

Parking is easy in Reykjavik as there are plenty of parking zones within the city. With free parking, it is essential to keep an eye out for the parking zones in Reykjavik. There are four parking zones, each with different prices, but you do not have to pay for parking if you do not see a "P" parking sign. Try to avoid driving during early morning and evening rush hours if you’re on a schedule. Most of Iceland’s scenic spots are far from town, so getting hired cars in Reykjavik is convenient. Driving around in Iceland is an excellent way to experience all its attractions at your pace. Getting a cheap car rental in Reykjavik gets you to attractions such as central, the thermal pools, the Blue Lagoon, and the Old Harbor area. The city covers a small walkable area, but luxury hired cars in Reykjavik are particularly convenient if you need to get to these scenic attractions. With only a few public transportation options outside the city limits, your best alternatives would be a bus tour. Unlike getting a people carrier rental, you may not have control over the schedule of public transportation.

Keeping Iceland’s driving rules will keep you safer and help you avoid expensive fines. In Iceland, drive on the right side of the road and pass on the left.   Infants must be seated in car-safety seats, so ensure to install one in your economy car rental in Reykjavik. All passengers and drivers must wear seatbelts in a people carrier rental. When driving in Reykjavik, your car headlights must be on at all times, and using phones when driving is prohibited. In a two-lane traffic circle, traffic on the inner lane has priority over the outer lane. Be sure to check out Reykjavik car restrictions for changes in traffic laws.

Rental cars in Reykjavik require an official driving license. A driving license without an International Driver's Permit from the US, Canada, EEA, and EU countries can drive in Iceland. Car rentals companies require you to be over 21 to rent a car.
