Freedom and flexibility

The obvious reason for renting a car in Iceland is the opportunity to explore without limits. Renting a car allows you to drive around Iceland at a pace you chose, giving you plenty of time to take in all of the gorgeous landscapes that the country has on offer. Sticking to your own itinerary is perfect for those who want to get the most from their trip. After all, who wants to spend half of their travel time loaded onto a bus? Public transport links in Iceland are near to non-existent, with a very limited bus system and no trains. When exploring Iceland in a rental car, you will experience a scenic drive with every route you take, with constant reminders of the amazing natural wonders Iceland has to offer just out the window. 

With organised tours, time management is out of your hands, which can be a frustration, to say the least. When renting a car, you can easily decide how long you spend at each destination. Your time is spent how you want to spend it. 


At SADcars, we only rent out the safest cars to our customers. We understand that your adventure needs to be as safe as it is fun, and that’s why our cars undergo the toughest safety tests. In general, rental cars are a lot safer than public transport methods for a number of reasons. Firstly, a rental car accommodates no one else but your party. While Iceland may be the safest country in the world, being jammed into a bus with strangers isn't a desirable way to travel for everyone. Being enclosed in the safety of your own rental car also shields you from any nasty germs which people may be carrying, and you can feel assured that your car is clean and polished. Because after all, who wants to fall ill on holiday? These factors all add up to making your adventure luxurious and exclusive.


Hiring a car will keep the cost of travel to a minimum, as you won’t have to pay for a taxi or bus service for the day. At SADcars, our rentals come at competitive prices and can suit an entire range of budgets and needs. Feel free to explore our selection of small cars, 4x4 SUVs, campers and minibuses to find the right car for your treasured trip to Iceland
