Benefits of camper rental in Iceland
There's a reason that many of the travelers spending time here opt for camper rental in Iceland. The long list of advantages convinces many to choose this option as both their means of transport and their accommodation. So why is renting a campervan in Iceland such a great idea? The first and most obvious reason is the price. In a country known for being expensive, one of the most economic ways to get around as a camper.
For a little more than the daily cost of renting a car, you'll have both transportation and a place to stay. Your Icelandic krona will go much further because you're not spending it all on an expensive hotel. Additionally, you're able to cook your own meals at any time, which means that costly restaurants won't eat up a large portion of your budget. Many people underestimate just how much food costs while traveling here. Seasoned travelers know that you can save a lot of money by making your own breakfast, lunch, or dinner.
The freedom and flexibility provided by traveling with a home on four wheels is another reason why people choose RV rental in Iceland. You wake up and start your day whenever you want, and drive for as much or as little as you feel like. You're not bound to hotel reservations and you set your own schedule and itinerary. There's no need to constantly pack and unpack your suitcase as you move from town to town. You can play things by ear more, like adding an extra stop or two on the Golden Circle route.

Whether you want to rent a camper or are considering a motorhome in Iceland, you're in for a very special treat. Camping in Iceland is the perfect way to see the country and get up close and personal with Mother Nature. Iceland has a robust camping infrastructure and large network of campsites. The facilities include bare-bones sites like Skógar camping, where you can wake up to the sound of a waterfall. There are also places that have restaurants, a pool, and free Wi-Fi, like the Reykjavik campsite.

4x4 Camper Rental in Iceland
So should you get a regular camper or a 4x4 camper for your travels? Well, it all depends on your itinerary. If you're only planning on going around the Ring Road and sticking to paved highways, then you'll do just fine with a regular camper van model. If, however, you plan on venturing into the country's wild interior, you're going to need something a little more rugged. There are special roads in this part of the country that require a particular type of vehicle.
F-roads, as these mountain roads are known, are unpaved gravel paths. There are lots of little stones, and driving on these types of terrain is not always easy. Icelandic Law requires anyone to navigating these F-roads to use a four-wheel-drive car, camper, or SUV.
Not every camper van has four-wheel drive. In fact, many models are two-wheel drive. If you plan on exploring the Highlands or Iceland’s F-roads, you'll need a Camper 4x4 Auto, Camper 4x4 Big Automatic, or something similar. Your camper van rental in Iceland 4x4 will take you anywhere you want to go. And with a four-wheel drive, you'll have no limits. If you're concerned about driving safely or winter driving, a 4WD camper rental in Iceland could be the right choice to give you that extra peace of mind. After all, what if the unthinkable happens and you hit a patch of black ice and start to skid out? In a land covered by ice and snow for much of the year, it's comforting knowing that you'll have steering of all four wheels. This will help you get things back under control as quickly as possible.

Do I need a credit card for RV camper rental in Iceland?
This is a great question and one we get asked frequently. It's standard procedure that when you pick up your RV camper rental in Iceland, they take an imprint of your card. This is true for all of the companies here. They will usually not block a deposit, but ask just in case. Instead, your credit card information is used when, if for some reason, there are additional charges to your rental. This includes unpaid parking fines, speeding tickets, or damage to your vehicle not covered by your rental insurance package.
Other concerns and frequently asked questions
Campers and motorhomes are larger than regular cars or SUVs. This causes many people to wonder whether or not they need a special license to drive one. With a few special exceptions, the answer is no. So while it's helpful to have a little bit of experience with driving a larger vehicle, a special license is usually not necessary. Exceptions come with countries that have different standard weight limits for drivers or licenses that are not printed with the Roman alphabet.
Another frequently asked question is what is the speed limit in Iceland. If you're driving on the Ring Road in rural, unpopulated areas, you can go up to 90 km/h (56 mph). When driving on unpaved roads or in residential areas you'll need to slow down to 80 km/h (50 mph) and 50 km/h (31 mph) respectively.
