What documents are necessary to rent a car in Iceland?

  • A valid driving license issued in your country of residence and held for at least one year is required. We accept all foreign drivers’ licenses. However, we require the license to be in English, with Latin characters or accompanied by a valid translation, since we need to be able to understand the information on the license. Please note that your international driving license is valid only if accompanied by your regular driving license, which must be valid.
  • Your valid credit card with an expiry date after the due drop-off date. We do accept debit cards with 16 digit number. You must also present a debit/credit card for those charges which have not been prepaid (such as extras, refuelling charge, service fees, parking and speeding tickets and excess due in the event of damage to or loss of the rented vehicle). We accept all major credit cards. Please note that we do not take any pre-authorization or require our customers to leave a deposit while they have the rental car in Iceland.
