Iceland is great for scenic driving. Visitors who use car rental in Iceland will enjoy taking in the fabulous scenery as they travel. High-speed driving is unsafe here, especially on the narrow mountain roads. Additionally, many of Iceland's roads are gravel, so a four-wheel drive vehicle is sometimes necessary. Traffic drives on the right and it is compulsory to keep your headlights on at all times.
With a rental car, visitors have access to the best sights in Iceland. One of these is the huge Mýrdalsjökull Glacier, which is accessed by the famous mountain road, Fjallabak Nyrðra. This route passes through stunning wilderness and leads to Vatnajökull National Park, where more impressive glaciers can be seen. For skiing and snowboarding, it's only a short drive from the capital of Reykjavík to Bláfjöll.
Iceland's main tourist season is from June to August, as the weather is at its peak at this time, with daytime temperatures of up to 25°C in the southern areas. During the rest of the year, many of the mountain roads are closed and the majority of tours and excursions stop running.

To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.
