Car Rental in Iceland

You will need a driving licence, passport or accepted form of ID and a credit card. You can rent a car for around 50 ISK a day. These are just guidelines, so do check with the car hire company to clarify the cost and documentation needed.

Icelanders drive on the right-hand side of the road.

Speed limits are in kilometres per hour, and are as follows:

  • Motorways (paved): 90kph/55mph
  • Motorways (gravel): 80kph/50mph
  • Thruways: 60kph/35mph
  • Residential Areas: 30kph/18mph

Mountain roads and those in the depth of Iceland have a surface of loose gravel. The same applies to large sections of the national highway, which also has long stretches of asphalt. The surface on the gravel roads is often loose, particularly along the roadsides, so you should drive cautiously and decelerate whenever you see an approaching car. The mountain roads are also often very narrow, and are not made for speeding. The same goes for the majority of bridges, which are only big enough for one vehicle at a time.
