Why should I rent an economy car in Iceland?

Choosing an economy car for your Icelandic adventure is a budget-friendly option, providing you with a reliable and fuel-efficient mode of transportation to explore the stunning landscapes and attractions of the country.

Are economy cars suitable for driving on the Icelandic Ring Road or driving around Iceland?

While economy cars are perfect for city driving in Reykjavik and navigating main paved roads during summer months, we recommend opting for a 4×4 vehicle if your journey includes gravel roads or visiting Iceland in Winter to ensure a safe and comfortable travel experience.

Are economy cars suitable for Icelandic winter road conditions?

Economy cars are best suited for travel during milder Icelandic weather conditions between late May and early September. For winter travel, when roads can be icy and snow-covered, we advise renting a 4×4 vehicle to ensure your safety and enhance your driving experience.

Can I drive in the highlands or on F-roads with an economy car in Iceland?

Driving in the Highlands with a two-wheel drive economy car is against Icelandic law, as these areas require a vehicle that can handle challenging and rough terrains.

This robust and reliable car is permitted on F-roads, making it a suitable option for those looking to explore the Highlands while adhering to local driving regulations.
