Who are we?

As a car rental in Iceland should be.

Go car rental Iceland is a locally owned company that was founded in 2011 with the goal of providing travelers like you with the greatest options for a comfortable and reliable rental car to get you safely around Iceland. We are travelers just like you, we know that renting can be a headache and you want your holiday to go as smoothly as possible. That's why we put our customer service in the first place alongside reliable rental cars which will help you explore Iceland and get you to your destination.

We aim to buy cars that have low CO2 emissions to minimize the carbon footprint. Our Green Mission is to have only electric cars in our rental fleet by the year 2030. With over 90% of its power coming from renewable sources, Iceland generates some of the greenest electricity on the planet. This presents Iceland with the ideal chance to be the first nation in the world to have an all-electric car fleet, leaving no carbon impact.

When you book your rental car with Go car rental Iceland, you can see a report of the CO2 emissions, which is also colored by how green it is.

Brittney Peden

The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Easy pick-up and drop-off. We had a flat tire during our trip, the Car Rental and the roadside assistance were both very helpful and made the process as painless as possible.

Would definitely recommend renting!

Go Car Rental is the place to get your rental car in Iceland. They offer city pick-up and have great advice for driving around Iceland. Great service when we made a reservation mistake on return time and they did not charge us for the error. These guys are awesome.

Go with GO if you rent a car in Iceland!

Adrian Gherman

We rented a Dacia Duster car and drive 3500km around Iceland. Service was great, the car behaved as expected. The picking and dropping of the car was fast, location of the office is behind hotel Aurora, a 3-5 min walk from the terminal. The small friendly team of people, no line, our agent handled the paperwork, did the car inspection and we were driving the rental in about 7-10 minutes.

Definitely recommended.

Greg & Emma

The customer service upon our arrival into Iceland was lovely. We got some good trip recommendations and had a great cup of coffee. Our rental car was, without a doubt, the trusty steed on our Ring Road adventure, and we really appreciated the included wifi.

We ended up dropping our car off in Reykjavik instead of back at the airport and they provided a shuttle back to downtown Reykjavik. Super nice people and great service.

Very easy and straightforward car rental company.

We picked up and dropped off the rental car right behind the Keflavik airport (behind the Aurora Hotel). The staff was pleasant, courteous, and extremely knowledgeable.
