Car rental in Reykjavik airport (RKV)

Reykjavik airport, also named Reykjavik city airport, is one of Iceland’s four ‘international’ airports. It is located in Reykjavik city centre, next to the city attraction Perlan museum and Reykjavik university. Even tho it is labelled as the international airport, the only international flight that arrives and departs from this city airport is the flights between Iceland and Greenland Kulusuk. It mainly serves as a domestic airport with frequent flights between the north Iceland Akureyri, east Iceland Egilsstaðir and the Westfjords Bíldudalur.

It is very often that international travellers confuse this city airport with the Keflavik International airport (KEF), which is around 40 minutes from Reykjavik.

If you are flying into Iceland on an international flight from Europe, America, Asia or elsewhere, please make sure you rent your car in Iceland from the correct airport.

Tips for renting a car at Reykjavik city airport

  • Book in advance is highly recommended(ideally 3 months in advance): rental cars are in high demand in Iceland, especially during the busiest summer months(from June to August). Early reservation can ensure you rent the vehicle you desire at a relatively lower price. The closer to the rental date, the higher the rental price.
  • Rent a car according to your itinerary: for longer trips or trips in winter, a bigger 4×4 SUV is recommended; for shorter trips or trips in summer, a 2WD small car is suitable for smaller groups.
  • A 4WD car is compulsory for F-roads: if your itinerary involves highland areas or using any F roads, you must rent a 4WD vehicle according to Icelandic law. Please make sure you plan your route before visiting Iceland
