Turnaround Time

We make every effort to fulfill requests for multi-month rentals as quickly as possible. Turnaround typically take 3-5 days, depending on availability. Turnaround may be shorter, determined mainly by the vehicle’s location among other factors.

Delivery of Multi-Month Vehicles

Hertz Multi-Month offices are at Selhella 5 in Hafnarfjörður, but the vehicles are picked up at Flugvallavegur 5, 101 Reykjavík.  Vehicles may be picked up from other Hertz locations, but bear in mind that this may delay delivery of the vehicle.

Returning Multi-Month Vehicles

Multi-Month vehicles are typically returned at the end of the calendar month. To return the vehicle outside of the agreed on time, please contact a Hertz Multi-Month representative at +354 858 0456 or vidskiptastjori@hertz.is.

Early Returns

The client may be able to return the vehicle before the end of the contract period if certain conditions are met, which are evaluated on a case-by-case basis.

Renter Minimum Age

An individual must be at least 20 years old to rent a vehicle from Hertz.
Passenger vehicles: 20 years

Payment must be made by credit card. When the multi-month vehicle is picked up, the card is charged for a full month at the beginning of the rental period, and subsequently on the 4th of each month.

Studded or Winter Tires

The renter may opt for the vehicle to be delivered with standard winter tires or studded tires. If the renter changes his or her mind during the rental period, the tires may be changed for service fee of ISK 11,000. This fee does not apply to seasonal tire changes.

Tire Service

Tires and tire changes are included in multi-month rentals. The renter is responsible for checking the vehicle’s tires and bringing the vehicle in when maintenance is necessary. This applies to both general tire maintenance and seasonal tire changes. No appointment is necessary. The renter waits while service is performed.

Oil Changes & Service Inspections

The vehicle must undergo regular oil changes every 10 to 30 thousand kilometers, depending on the model. The mileage for the next oil change can be found on the sticker on the left side of the windshield.  The renter is responsible for bringing the vehicle in for oil changes and service inspections as needed. No appointment is necessary. The renter waits while service is performed.

All multi-month renters with a 12-36 month contract receive a free car wash once a month, available at Hertz locations on weekdays, 08:00 – 16:00. Please note that the Hertz location at Keflavík Airport does not offer a free car wash. No appointment is necessary. The renter waits while service is performed.

Bulbs and Wipers

Replacement bulbs and windshield wipers are included in the rental price. If a bulb burns out or a wiper blade needs replacement, please visit the a Hertz location for service.


Fuel is not included in the rental price. The vehicle must be returned with a full tank at the end of the rental period.

Fuel Discounts

Individual and corporate clients with multi-month Hertz rentals enjoy special pricing on fuel in partnership with Olís.  It is easy to apply for the discount. Visit a Hertz location and we will enroll you in the program.

Additional Drivers

There is no need to register or pay for additional drivers in multi-month rentals.

Minimum Age of Additional Drivers

There is no minimum age for additional drivers. However, drivers holding only a provisional license (e.g., learner’s permit) may not drive multi-month vehicles from Hertz.


If the vehicle is damaged, Hertz must be notified as soon as possible. All damage must be reported and processed by the damage claims department at Hertz. Any damage to the multi-month rental must be reported to accident@hertz.is.

How old are the vehicles?

Multi-month rental vehicles are typically 15-24 months old. Hertz also offers newer and older vehicles for multi-month rental. The rental fee reflects the age of the vehicle.

Exceeding Kilometer Allowance

Any distance driven over the kilometer allowance is settled at the end of the rental period. However, the renter is prompted regularly to report the vehicle’s current mileage through hertz.is/kilometrar if the overage becomes excessive, the renter is given the option to update the general rental rate instead of paying for the overage.

Can extra kilometers be added to the allowance later?

If the renter wishes to increase the monthly kilometer allowance, the vehicle must be brought to a Hertz location to record the mileage and sign a new contract. The kilometer allowance has already been exceeded, the renter must pay for the overage before a new contract may be drawn up. Please confer with Hertz at vidskiptastjori@hertz.is before coming in with the vehicle for a new contract.
