did not pick up the car at all
Cons: We could not pick up the car. We arrived at KEF airport and Dollar told us to go to Reykjavik city location to pick up the car. It was Xmas season and not all locations were open.

Most Helpful
Pros: The young staff took good care of us. We had 8 pieces of luggage and they offered to store it for us instead of us having to stuff it in our very small car. They even gave us a ride back to the terminal the morning we left instead of us having to ferry our bags over piece by piece. It didn't matter to us that the counter wasn't at the terminal. They also didn't get pushy the way some companies have done when it came to the additional insurance and options. They were efficient, friendly, and I would rent from them should we have the good fortune to find ourselves in Reykjavik again.

Pros: Nothing
Cons: I visited Iceland with 5 friends so we reserved a 6 persons car. Turned out Kayak didn't inform Dollar correctley and they only had a 5 persons car for us. After a phone call to Kayak (30+ minutes waiting time and €17 later) the only thing they could tell us is "it's Dollars fault". We lost several hours looking for a different car and eventually found one at Herz for twice the price...

Iceland Rental
Pros: Agents were helpful, car drove well.
Cons: Keflavik airport's shuttle was terrible. It required standing outside in a line of people in freezing temperatures for half an hour.

Dollar=hertz
Pros: I did not know that dollar car rental is hertz at Charles de Gualle. Hertz will nickel and dime you to death and this rental did that.
Cons: Tiny scratch on the car which I'm 90% sure was there before cost us 200 euro. The radio being broken and having to pull over and ask an attendant to help us fix an issue with the tire pressure amount to a very unsatisfactory 15 euro credit. Never hertz

Pros: Easy pickup process. Car was immediately ready.
Cons: Rental agency didn’t have a good explanation of different insurance types—a must in Iceland where roads and conditions really require some type of protection

Pros: Hertz staff were extremely helpful. Some of the roads were closed on our route so they helped program our GPS to avoid those roads and gave suggestions of places to stop on the way.

Excellent Service
Pros: We had a last min. change of plans that brought us to Iceland for a few days. Hertz was great at getting us a rental car with virtually no notice. Wonderful people at the desk and a far better car rental experience then anything I've used in the US
Cons: The shuttle back to our hotel was a surprise bonus!

Aug 7 2018
Pros: I liked the pick up at the hotel. The car drove fine.
Cons: The quote that I received on Kayak was about $20 less than when I went to pick up the car. I declined any extra insurance. I spoke with Hertz rental and they said the the Iceland office was an independent office and would check with them. They basically said that that was the price and here is your invoice of what you paid. It seems that there is nothing that I can do about this. I work in the airline industry and will not recommend Kayak, unless this is rectified.

Excellent service, slow pickup
Pros: Great car, awesome drop-off experience. Attentive employees who knew what they were doing.
Cons: The pickup still took more than 1.5 hours, even though I had reserved/booked in advance, which made me miss my hotel check-out time. One unfortunate employee was left to deal with a long line of customers who hadn't booked in advance, further penalizing those who had planned ahead.

Poor customer service
Cons: When we arrived they informed us that they didn't have the size vehicle that we booked, which was unfortunate because we had 7 people with luggage. The most that they could offer us for the inconvenience was the option to book another car at full price. The man was very short with us and repeatedly said that it wasn't his fault, rather that it was Kayak's fault and that he didn't need to accommodate us. Thankfully our friend had already booked a car with another company and allowed several of us to go with him, but our group was split up.

Rip off
Cons: It ended up costing me three times as much as the amount on the booking page. I rented a car for one day, it was supposed to cost me 59 $ but in they hade taken around 150 $ from my bank account... A total rip off!

the return process was totally unacceptable
Cons: you cannot just return the car you have to wait in line and wait for someone to come out to your car and I had to wait for 3 little vans to take me back to the airport because they only had one and so many people were waiting I had to wait for this one van to come back 3 times before I could get on. I almost missed my flight

Pros: Staff was friendly, good price performance ration.
Cons: Unluckily if you book the car and you are there only one day with the cruise ship to pick up the car (no matter if with reservation or without) took more than one hour. This made our day trip very stressful, because we lost so much time. Employees should not work as tourist information if long line.
5,2 Okay

Cons: I had booked my reservation to be picked up at 1 and dropped off at 3 and when I arrived at the return the agent charges us an extra $80 usd for the addition two hours because our reservation didn’t note the addition two hours

May 6 2017
Pros: Cheap and fair.
Cons: We were not informed that the Iceland Economy Car Rental company does a "pick up service" since their building is not in the airport. This meant we were not looking for the driver when we landed and missed him. This created great confusion as we did not have cell service there to contact the company and had to find airport help.

Not the best value
Pros: Staff were friendly and easy to communicate with. Insurance was offered at a reasonable rate.
Cons: Rental was actually through Fair Car, not Economy Rent a Car. While somewhat cheaper than other large car options, we still paid a lot for a car that was a tight squeeze for five people and our luggage. We changed the pick up by only a few hours, which led to a noticeable change in price. After it was all said and done, the car was almost $200 more than expected. It looks like we were originally quoted a price in euros, not US dollars and local taxes were omitted.

Didn't get the car we chose/were billed for
Cons: We were a party of 6 adults with 6 pieces of large luggage and 6 pieces of small luggage. We requested, had a confirmation and paid for a Toyota Sienna van with room for 7 adults and lots of luggage, but received a Citroen Picasso with room for 6 adults and no luggage. There was nothing else available at pick up and there was nothing they could do to make it better. Would not provide a roof rack unless we paid for the rental of it. We were therefore extremely crowded and uncomfortable for the entire time of the rental. The rental location was very hard to find as it was not at the airport as expected, where all the other rental companies were located. Would never rent from them again.

AVOID. An abysmal service. Extortionate profiteeri
Pros: They gave me a car for 6 days I suppose
Cons: Picked up late from Keflavik in a dangerously overloaded van. Rude and unpleasant staff. Charged £650 for replacement of a damaged windscreen that was present on collection (over double the rental cost). Go somewhere else to rent a car in Iceland.

Absolutely hassle free
Pros: Very friendly and helpful staff. I had my own insurance cover and they didn't even try to sell their own insurance. They gave me a free map, coupons for fuel discounts, and some good advice on my travel itinerary. The pick-up and drop-off was seamless with virtually no waiting time. The car was new and very well cleaned. Overall, I am very happy with the service I received and will definitely use them again on my next trip to Iceland
Cons: none really

Generally good - but could easily be improved
Pros: Slick car pick up / drop off Good, friendly staff
Cons: Transport at the airport - the pickup bus was later arriving and no obvious signage on where to get picked up / meet My car had some damage on pick up - all noted fine, but the headlights were affected by the damage. Should have been fixed before re-hiring.

Aug 13 2019
Pros: Their staff seems to be nice while they rip you off under the table. Should have read the reviews before I booked. What people say about it being a scam is completely true.
Cons: - They charge arms and legs for insurance deposit and damages that weren't even done by you (lots of Google reviews from multiple people about this). - Pickup in my experience took 3 hours. Multiple people had to wait with me for several hours.
