Reykjavik Mini Guide

Visit the northernmost capital city of a sovereign state in the world with car hire Reykjavik. This is an incredibly exciting travel destination made unique by the multi-coloured wooden buildings and geothermal hot pots which are a wonderful place to take a relaxing soak after a long flight. If you are arriving by plane then remember that we offer car hire from Reykjavik Airport and Keflavik, just 50km away.  Reykjavik’s airport has runways that are too small for most international flights, so they must land at Keflavik. Several operators fly from UK airports so you will have a choice of flights and prices.
