Learn everything there is to know about hiring a car in Iceland so you can be properly prepared for your next trip

What side of the road do people in Iceland drive on?

People drive on the right in Iceland. If you are travelling to Iceland from a country that drives on the opposite side of the road, then this may take some getting used to, especially if you intend to hire a car during your stay.

How good are the roads in Iceland?

Out of 137 countries, Iceland ranked 38 for road quality. On a scale of 1 to 7, where 7 is the highest score, Iceland scored 4.8 for their road quality. The quality of the roads within the country may vary based on where you visit and the weather.

What is the drink driving limit in Iceland?

The BAC limit is 2.38 mg/l in Iceland - this applies to both visitors and residents. Your BAC level is a measurement of the percentage of alcohol in your bloodstream. This information is used to determine how inebriated an individual is. Driving a vehicle with a BAC higher than 2.38 mg/l is against the law in Iceland and you will be deemed as ‘driving under the influence’. Be aware that 20 is the legal drinking age in Iceland, and there are strict laws that prohibit drivers under this age from drink driving.

How much does petrol cost in Iceland?

Petrol in Iceland costs £1.80 per litre as of last week. If you plan on hiring a car in Iceland, then set aside a budget for the cost of petrol based on how much driving you imagine doing. In contrast, Egypt currently has the lowest average petrol prices at £0.24 per litre. You should also consider visiting Hong Kong, though here you will find the most expensive average petrol prices at £2.53 per litre.

How old do you have to be to hire a car in Iceland?

Among different countries, including Iceland, the minimum age for drivers varies. In numerous EU countries, drivers must be 18 years old. To hire a car overseas, you'll generally need to be at least 21, and if you're under 25, a young driver surcharge may be imposed. It's recommended that you review the policy of the rental company you're considering before booking.

What documentation or ID do you need to rent a car in Iceland?

To rent a car in Iceland, all drivers must present a valid full driving license. If the license is written in a language other than the language of the country of rental, an International Driving Permit may be required to avoid the risk of potential fines. If you're renting a car abroad, you may also need to provide evidence of your return travel and accommodation information during your stay. We always recommend that you verify with the specific rental company you're booking with.
