Renting a Car in Iceland. What you need to know to stay safe & have fun.

Why Route 1?

When you are traveling in a new country, it can be easy to just stay with what is comfortable and familiar, especially when you are traveling with a family. This is why many visitors to Iceland don’t leave the city limits of Reykjavik. However, there is so much more to see in Iceland. This entire island is filled with jaw-dropping beauty. Discovering a new country, like Iceland, with your family is an incredible experience. However, ensuring that all of your munchkins are safe is even more important.

Iceland’s weather and road conditions are constantly changing, and this can scare some families from road tripping around the Ring Road. However, we are here to tell you that you can and should travel Route 1 with your family. You just need to make sure you choose the right rental car company. Our destination editor, Emilee, chose Route 1 Car Rental. As far as Emilee is concerned, “there is not another rental car company she would travel within Iceland. They were the best of the best.”

In Iceland, there is a popular saying that goes, “If you don’t like the weather, wait 5 minutes”. Learn more about why Renting a Car in Iceland helps you travel deeper- Click To Tweet

3) Service

When Emilee arrived, Diego from Route 1 Car Rental met her at the airport. He gave her the keys to a Suzuki Vitara Automatic (perfect car for a road trip around Iceland, if we do say so ourselves). He also gave her a packet full of information on road conditions, Iceland’s emergency information, and other important safety tips. Route 1 Car Rental genuinely cares about your safety. They prepare you with all of the information you need to know so that you can enjoy your trip around the Ring Road.

4) Availability of WiFi

Finally, we highly recommend renting wifi for your vehicle! GPS services like Apple Maps, Google Maps, and Waze work in Iceland! Emilee used Waze to travel around the Ring Road and it made her adventure so much easier. This wouldn’t be possible without the wifi unit that Route 1 Car Rental offers.
