Before you start your journey take some time to get used to the vehicle and its controls. This is especially important if you're used to driving a manual transmission on the opposite side of the road.
If you're used to driving on the opposite side of the road be extra careful of road circles. Always navigate traffic circles in an anti-clockwise direction, giving way to traffic currently on the road circle to the left.
It's worth keep some change available in the vehicle to pay for tolls. Many toll roads will accept credit cards but it's always safer to have some change as a backup
Driving in Iceland is on the right hand side of the road
If you plan drive across the border into another country, be sure to check the T&Cs for cross border fees and to let the car rental company know. If you don't there's the possibility that you will not be insured if you are involved in an accident or the car is stolen

There's a wide variety of reasons why we're different from our rivals but to start, it's important to understand that Stress Free Car Rental was born out of our frustration with the process of renting a car.
We work hard to ensure that we provide you with all of the best car rental prices in Iceland with no unexpected charges.
So, the reason we do things a bit differently is because we got annoyed with seeing customers having trips ruined by a bad car rental experience and knew we could do a better job.
