Our small rental cars in Iceland are popular amongst many thanks to their low running costs and straightforward nature. Whether you plan on spending a lot of time in Reykjavik, or fancy heading out on a day trip elsewhere, renting a small car is an ingenious decision, allowing you to explore Iceland with ease.
We have small cars available as either manual or automatic transmission, so you can choose whichever is your preferred option. Our fuel-efficient vehicles are ideal for couples or other travellers with less luggage. If you are looking for a car with more storage space, take a look at our midsize cars or large vehicles.
Please note: our small cars are not permitted to be used on Iceland’s F-roads. If you plan to use these highland roads, you’ll need to hire a 4x4 car.
