Payment can be made using the most popular Visa Debit and Mastercard Debit cards that are typically embossed. However we can also accept other cards such as Visa Electron which is a real benefit as not many suppliers in the world will accept these cards.
What types of cars can you rent in Iceland with no credit card? Is a 4×4 necessary?
There is the usual range of vehicles available from many suppliers. But in Iceland, more than most countries you should really consider your plans before selecting your rental car. Where do you intend to travel? What type of roads will you be travelling on? What time of year is it?

The young lady I just booked with (Jess) has the most pleasant customer approach, she made my booking a doddle!
Maryia was very friendly, and answered all my many questions quickly. She helped us decide on the best car for our needs. The car hire firm we used (Ice Car Hire in Iceland) were great, and everything went smoothly. I'd definitely use this service again.
The only provider I found with ease for renting with a credit card. Responded to queries promptly to work out an arrangement to suit me and the supplier. Thanks!
