The VW (Volkswagen) Golf rental is perfect if you are looking for a car to get around the cities in Iceland. This surprisingly spacious hatchback can comfortably accommodate a family of four or five. Although a relatively compact vehicle, the VW Golf is a great affordable choice for getting around the beautiful country. This vehicle has the ability to carry a maximum of 5 passengers, with enough space in the boot for 3 bags. The VW Golf is notorious for its fuel efficiency and relatively powerful engine, ideal for a small family wishing to travel the highways of Iceland. If you are visiting Iceland for the major attractions and plan on sticking to the Golden Circle ring roads, then the VW Golf will be perfect to suit your needs. This car will be able to take you to most of Iceland’s top attractions, accommodation sites and natural wonders.

Many of the roads around Iceland are accessible, and you can drive around the country comfortably, especially if you plan on sticking to the main routes and roads. However, some remote roads can be more treacherous and prove difficult to navigate in a smaller vehicle. If you plan on being more adventurous on your trip and plan on heading out into the more remote parts of Iceland, then the VW Golf is not the best car for you. This kind of travel would be more suited to a larger 4x4 vehicle. Browse our other vehicles and get an instant quote.

Awesome! -

The car was great! We ended up getting a Hyundai i30 which was super spacious and easy to use. It even came with Apple Carplay which was a treat since we love to listen to music while on the road.
