    1. Are flights included?

    So you can get the best deal and most flexibility, we don’t include flights with our packages.

    Once you have a rough idea of when you want to travel, you can start searching for flights to Iceland. Of course, if you need help figuring out which airlines fly from your country, we’re happy to point you in the right direction. Simply get in touch if you need advice.

    Thanks to its location in the North Atlantic, Iceland is well served by direct flights from lots of European countries and North America. If you’re coming from further afield, you’ll probably need a connecting flight.


    2. When should I book?

    As a rule of thumb, it’s best to book at least a few weeks before you plan to travel. For availability reasons, we’re unable to book trips with less than 1 week’s notice.

    For the summer season, it’s a good idea to book a few months ahead of when you plan to travel. This is the most popular time of year to visit Iceland and places to stay can be limited in more remote areas.

    If you’re planning to join a guided group tour, we recommend booking a few months in advance. Departures are restricted to certain dates and the most popular ones can get booked up.


    3. Can I add extra nights to my package?

    For sure, we want you to squeeze as much as you can into your trip! No matter what kind of package you book, you can add extra nights to the start or end of your trip at checkout.


    4. Can I mix accommodation types?

    We offer 3 levels of accommodation: Budget, Comfort, and Quality. Unfortunately, it’s not possible to mix accommodation levels within the same package.

    Find out more about what you get with each accommodation type.


    5. Can I book a trip for my family?

    Yes, Iceland is a great destination for a family adventure!

    If you’re a family of 4 traveling together, you’ll need to book at least 2 rooms. If there are more of you, you might need to book 3 rooms or more. In this case, the booking can take a bit of extra time to confirm.


    6. Can I purchase extra car insurance when I collect my car?

    When you rent a car with us, you’ll always get basic liability insurance and collision damage waiver (CDW) included as standard. 

    This is subject to an excess (deductible) that would need to be paid if you were to have an accident. You can pay to reduce the excess at the counter when you collect your car.

    There you’ll also have the option to add gravel road and volcanic ash insurance. The car rental rep will be able to tell you how much this costs at the counter. For more info, see our car rental page.


    7. Do I need a passport or visa to travel to Iceland?

    If you’re a citizen of the EEA, you can travel to Iceland using your passport or national identity card visa-free. Otherwise, you’ll need a valid passport with at least 3 months left on it before expiry.

    Citizens of many countries including the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand can travel to Iceland for up to 90 days visa-free. Check the Icelandic Directorate of Immigration’s visa-free travel list to find out if you’re eligible.

    If you do need a visa, let us know once we’ve confirmed your booking and we can send you a confirmation letter for your visa application.


    8. Can I drive in Iceland?

    To hire a rental car in Iceland, you’ll need to be at least 20 years old, or 23 years old for jeeps or vans. You’ll also need to have held your driver’s license for at least 1 year. To confirm the booking and pay your holding deposit, you’ll also need a credit card.

    If you’re from the EU, United States, United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, or New Zealand, you can drive in Iceland with your driver’s license from home.

    For all the deets, see our car rental page. And see our Travel Guide if you’re after tips on how to drive in Iceland.

    About Iceland

    This island offers an incredible variety of different landscapes and natural phenomena in a relatively small country. Geologically, Iceland is very young and in a very real sense it can be said to be still in the making.
