Rent a car with Hertz Iceland at the best price!

The rental car prices at Hertz Iceland are calculated daily, and the longer the booking duration, the cheaper the average daily price will be.

Typically, during the peak travel season from June to August, the average rental car prices in Iceland are higher.
The shoulder seasons from April to May and September to October are generally more affordable,
while the low season from November to March offers the lowest rental car prices.

In addition to the rental car fees mentioned above,
due to the unpredictable weather conditions and hazardous road conditions in Iceland,
rental cars are often prone to damage.

To address this, Hertz Iceland not only offers rental car insurance add-ons
but also provides other insurance plans with a ZERO excess, which can be easily processed when renting a car.
Customers can also directly contact Hertz Iceland in case of any issues, which is convenient and time-saving.
