All people arriving in Iceland even those with Vaccinated for COVID-19 or with Antibodies are tested at the airport and need to quarantine while waiting for the screening results. Meaning in most cases you need to pick up the camper the day after you arrive. These measures are currently until the end of May.
- The results of the screening will be within 24h (but generally in 6-8 h).
From 1st of June:
If you have been Vaccinated for COVID-19 or with Antibodies as a result of being previously diagnosed with COVID-19, you can enter Iceland without being limited to the current restrictions.
Those who present a valid certificate of a previous diagnosis of COVID-19 or antibodies
Are exempt from presenting a negative PCR-test upon arrival.
Need to undergo one screening test for COVID-19 at the border but are exempt from quarantine if the test is negative.
We suggest that you take the Flybus and ask the driver to stop at Nordurey Hotel Reykjavik Road as it is the closest stop to our office. From there it is about 5-10 minute walk to our office. Helluhraun 4, is our address here in Hafnarfjörður Iceland. See a map here below.
Another option is to book an airport pickup service that we offer. Then we will monitor your flight and meet and greet you in the arrival hall around 30 minutes after your plane lands. As long as it's landing time is within our opening hours. The price for this service is charged per booking and will be presented in the booking process.
It's fairly easy to reach us by bus. Use this website https://straeto.is/en fill in your address and ours (Helluhraun 4, 220 Hafnarfjörður). Bus #1 from downtown Reykjavík will take you close to our office. Here is a map with the walking path from the bus stop to our office.
If you are returning on opening hours we recommend the Flybus that stops at the Viking Hotel close to our office. We can give you a lift to the bus stop and even sell you tickets for the bus if you like. You don't need to prebook the flybus from the Viking Hotel as this is one of the main stops for the bus.
If you are returning the camper outside opening hours. Then we recommend pre-booking the flybus or calling a taxi.
If you book - Keflavík airport - shuttle service 60EUR as dropoff we will arrange a shuttle to the airport.
No there is no limit on the kilometers you can drive per day but we recommend that you don't plan your trip with more than average of 300 km per day at the maximum. Our experience is that we get the most relaxed and satisfied customers back that have driven around 200 km per day on average.
We don't want to surprise our customers with hidden charges so our prices include:
CDW insurance with self-risk, VAT, additional driver, unlimited mileage.
And all our campervans include at the minimum: Small stove, pots and pan and all the dinnerware to prepare simple meals. Mattress and pillows. Linen and sleeping bags are not included but check our selection of equipment that you can rent in the booking process.
Yes! The payments are processed by Valitor the largest and respected credit card payment process company here in Iceland. They are verified as PCI DSS compliant for all their credit card activities. Read more about their security standards here.
If you don’t have access to campsites you must seek permission to camp for the night from the owner of the land you plan on staying on as it is not legal to camp wild. In a national park you must use the campsite. Off road driving is illegal in Iceland and please do not litter or leave anything behind.
We advise people not to try to complete the ring road with less than 7 days on the road. 10 days are what we feel are optimal and we get the best feedback from the customers that have used 10 days for making the whole way around the island in a camper. If you have less than a week we recommend the south coast and the golden circle. Snæfellsnes peninsula and Reykjanes peninsula are nice areas as well with plenty of options for exploring and within comfortable driving distance.
We recommend that each customer gets familiar with the safetravel.is website. There is a lot of good information there regarding driving in the highland of Iceland and driving in Iceland in general. Another good webpage that we recommend is visiticeland.com and here you can reach a video of how to drive safely in Iceland. The Iceland academy videos are also a great source of info. We also strongly recommend that you check the weather forecast and road conditions each day as both can change frequently and where you were planning to go might not be possible at the time. Please note that driving a Camper at a wind speed of more than 15 meters per second is not recommended.
Included in our prices is a CDW (collision damage waiver) insurance with 2.500 EUR self-risk. In addition, we offer three optional insurances: Gravel protection (GP) insures the windshields, headlights, and the paint of the car for damages caused by gravel that hit your rental car from passing vehicles.
Super CDW insurance lowers the self-risk of the standard CDW insurance.
Sand and ash protection covers damages to paint, glass, headlights, chrome, and plastics of the rental campers caused by sand, ash, pumice, or other earth materials that can be blown to the camper.
