**ICELAND** Car rental and any ideas for my travel plan?

by /bio/greensky »

Hello globetrotters! I will spend some days with my sis in Iceland at mid-April and we hesitate about the best car for that. We want to visit the main tourist spots through the Golden Circle, Would we need a 4x4 vehicle for this itinerary or a 2wd one would be enough? we do want to get a new brand car with 0 franchise! About our travel plan, any itinerary recommendation? thanks a lot for your help and time! :)

Hi! I'm curently planning a trip to Iceland but I will go for a motorhome just to avoid paying the hotels. I made some research on the internet and there are many roads that can be accessed with a 4x4 car only. However if you only driver on paved roads and for that you can use the Ring Road which goes all around Iceland, you can get a standard 2wd. This is what we are going to do. My rental company told me that with thr 2wd motorhome I am not allowed on F-roads because it could damage the vehcile etc. I can't recommend any car rental company though as the company I rent from has only motorhomes and smaller campers. Hope it helps a bit!

Hello!

I visited Iceland back in 2017 and by that time (first days of April) I was told that a 4x4 was not necessary but recommendable. We decided to take the advice and we went for a 4x4. We did not regret to have spent that money because despite the weather was good most of the time, we had a couple of days that we went through a storm when coming back to Reykjavik from the north. As the car was heavier, it was more balanced and steady which mad us feel safer.

I hope this is of help for you :)

If you are planning for a trip to Iceland then you will find many beautiful places to visit there. There are many tour agents those who provide jeep for tourists. In last year I had visited there at that time we booked our trip with the help of Discover Iceland who provided the best package. You may take the help of the tour guide but before choosing any tour guide to check the reviews.
