Guide

The Icelandic town of Akureyi is located in the north east of Iceland just 40 kilometres south of the Arctic. The location is very picturesque as the town is surrounded by mountains and is situated on Iceland's longest fjord. Car hire in Akureyi is a great way to explore this beautiful region.

Although exploring Iceland's north with car rental in Akureyi is fun, please note that many of Iceland's roads are unsurfaced and occasionally slippery with loose gravel, the roads can be very steep and the weather can change quickly. Sheep also have a habit of stepping out in front of cars.

There is plenty to see and do around Akureyi. You can go white-water rafting; play a round of golf on the most northern golf course in the world; visit Europe's largest bird sanctuary at Myvatn Lake; visit the Husavik Whale Museum and the famous Icelandic Phallogical Museum.

With cheap car hire in Akureyi, there are many interesting places to discover such as Dettifoss, Gooafoss, Grimsey and Hrisey. There are many opportunities in the north of Iceland to go skiing, cross country skiing, ice skating and snow boarding.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.

Is Carrentals.co.uk the cheapest?

Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town.

What do I need to do when picking up a car?

To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.

Are there any additional costs?

In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance).

What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental?

In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car.

What is a worry-free label?

This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you.

How can I change or cancel my reservation?

You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less).

When will I get a confirmation of my booking?

Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours).
