    Would use them again!
    I had a great experience with CampingCars. It’s nothing like renting a car in the USA. The airport pickup + drop off was seamless and very much appreciated. I needed to change the dates a few weeks before my trip and I got a refund for a portion of the deposit without having to ask/remind them. The car was clean and the pop-up tent was so easy to use. The memory foam mattress inside was very comfortable. My friend and I had an amazing 2 week trip in Iceland with this car and tent. At pickup, I got some extremely helpful advice (and coupons) that saved us HOURS on our trip! I have no criticisms and really appreciate the staff I interacted with. Thank you campingcars!

    Fantastic rental company!
    Rented cars in many countries, but this was by far the best experience. Quick and friendly employees, very good car and all the add-ons were perfect. The tent and sleeping bag were of very good quality. If you are visiting Iceland and you want to explore the country i would really recommend this company. @campingcars: greetings from the teddybear ;)

    Great adventure with Camping Cars
    Renting a car at Camping Cars was really good choice for us. We loved the way we could contact a company in every moment of our journey, we were picked up from airport and returned when we ended our trip. We rented Suzuki Jimny from 2015 and the car was great. The tent was very comfortable. We have wonderful memories and that was great to trip with small jeepy car around whole Iceland. We appreciate time that employees gave us, even when we got late from our country because our flight was delayed. If we ever will come back for the another trip in Iceland we surely will choose Camping Cars again!

    The perfect way to see Iceland
    My son and I had an excellent experience with Camping Cars. We rented their Suzuki Jimny 4X4 with the pop-up tent top, and additional camping gear. The Jimny was perfect for getting around Iceland, including many of the back country F roads and several shallower river crossings. The pop-up tent is very convient and comfortable. It can be set up in under a minute. The folks at Camping Cars were easy to work with and great communicators. Our experience in Iceland was fantastic. I'll be going back and will rent from Camping Cars again.

    A great way to experience camping in Iceland
    I've decided to book a camping car to avoid bringing the camping equipment on the flight, and it was absolutely the right choice. The roof tent is really easy to open/close, and there's the capability to rent a sleeping bag/a portable kitchen (recommended imho). If you plan to travel the whole Ring Road I'd suggest to take their recommended insurances, expecially the gravel one. The staff is helpful and friendly, I'll make sure to book again here when I'll come back to Iceland.

    Best car rental experience I ever had!
    We got exactly what we booked and were surprised by the smoothest pick up procedure. The Guy who gave the car us was very nice and ambitious and showed us a bunch of useful websites to navigate through Iceland, find campsites and even to check the aurora chances. He gave us a short introduction to the roof tent and gave advice how to park the car to not get too much trouble with the wind. On the road we decided to take the car for a bit longer and changed the booking, easily with one call. Awesome service! The car was absolutely good and we were surprised by the wifi router, wich worked perfect most of the time (sometimes too far from civilization there was just no signal at all). We were absolutely happy with Camping Cars Car Rental and would recommend them without hesitation.

    As Described, and better!
    The car, tent, and all accessories were clean and in great working order. Everything was easy to open, use, and put away. The Suzuki performed great on F Roads as well as paved highway. The company was very nice to pick us up from the airport on demand and drop us off for our flight after car return. If we travel to Iceland again, we will rent again through camping cars!

    Smooth deal, nice company
    It was a great experience. The guys from Camping Cars were really nice and helpful, instructed us just about everything, filled us with useful tips. Our 2015 Suzuki GV had a few dents and scratches, but hey - it wasn't a new car. It was very clean, everything working (even the cruise control), WiFi on board saved us more than once. The only "bad" thing: They aren't open 24/7. We came to Keflavík around midnight and had to wait till 7AM. But it was worth the wait.

    Camping Cars did an amazing job at Introducing and show how to use the car along with the roof top tent we choose with the car. The service and simplicity of the rental prosess made it effortless and joyful from A to B. The staff is kind, flexible, motivated and service minded. I would definitely choose this company again.

    Best Camping Car Rental in Iceland!
    Nicest lads! Booked a Suzuki Vitara with a roof tent for 3 days during some pretty bad gusts and rain during this winter weather, and the car worked great! When I come back to Iceland, I’m booking with CampingCars!

This car rental company is the best you can get all over Iceland. We established a relationship by mail at first since the pandemic could have affected our travel plans. Everybody has been fully available and sympathetic infact we arrived in the middle
Of the night and we slept in a place close to the airport. The day later, we called the rental car company and a man came to pick us up there for free. They also have been very nice and explained everything in detail(bigger companies just give you the keys,let you sign tons of documents and let you go). We have googled a lot and explored many options around Keflavík airport.
To be honest the company has a limited choice of 4x4 but at the end of our vacation we can firmly state that CAMPING CAR S COMPANY IS THE BEST YOU CAN GET. The vehicles are kept in good conditions and our Dacia Duster was simply amazing. The car was clean, tyres were new, Wi-Fi was unlimited, camping chairs were comfortable; the company offered also new gas bottles that other clients left before departing. Last but not least there is a special promo code you can use for your next trip to Iceland. So… if you have been there to admire the midnight sun, why not coming back to be enraptured by the northern lights? Come back or experience the most unforgettable and wildest nature in Europe!

We rented the Suzuki grand Vitara with rooftop tent for a week in June 2023. This car was from 2015 with 400.000 km on the odometer. During the week, we noticed a lot of technical and safety issues. We informed the company about it after drop off at the airport and didn't get any response at all after 3 emails. Also no confirmation that the car was returned properly. These kind of cars shouldn't be out for rental any longer !!!
And not responding to emails after these remarks is very unprofessional as well.

Excellent company, their number one priority is to ensure you're happy with everything and they go above and beyond to ensure that you are well equipped with not only the right equipment but the knowledge to safely enjoy your trip.

The team are very knowledgeable and friendly. The vehicles seem to be well maintained and our Suzuki Vitara performed excellently, tackling every road and weather condition that we were faced with.

I hope to visit again later this year, and the guys at Camping Cars will be my first phone call.

Renting a camping car on Iceland is not cheap, but Camping Cars gives you good value for money.
As we arrived in Keflavik, we called the company and we were picked up with more or less momentarily. The office is a short drive from the terminal, and we were given very informative instructions on how to set up and take down the roof tent (amazingly simple to do, by the way.)
Having driven on gravel roads before, I appreciated that they did not try to sell us all kinds of insurance. Instead, they gave us coupons for free coffee at select gas stations.
The car had quite a few miles on it, but was functioning well.
The drop-off was no hassle. A quick check for any major damage and then we were taken to the terminal to go home.
I will definitely choose Camping Cars again, should I go back for another Icelandic adventure.

We had a great experience with Camping Cars. We decided to go with a local car rental company rather than one of larger international companies and were glad we did. they picked us up (and dropped us off) at the airport which was nice and they gave us some local driving tips. We knew we would be traveling over the gravel roads and going to the highlands both of which are fine with the 4x4s provided by Camping Cars. The Ford Escape has 8" ground clearance and handled it all just fine. Each rental comes with a WiFi hot spot in the car which worked surprisingly well for our needs.

The car (Suzuki Grand Vitara) was agood little warrior- took us through the rivers and up the mountains far enough! The standard roof tent is good- maybe just a bit short if one sleeper is 193cm (the other one was a bit shorter- it helped). The added bonuses where wifi router and a thermos (the latter came with the additionally rented kitchen set I guess). Service was fast and frindly.

I rented an automatic Suzuki Grand Vitara for a ten day trip around Iceland. In ten days, I did around 3500 km, and didn't have a single problem. I took some of the hardest F roads (carefully, because I was alone) and didn't have any trouble at all. After hearing many horror stories from lots of other people I met about their rentals, I felt quite lucky to have my trip go so smoothly. I didn't once have to change a tire, even after driving over the insane lava field to Askja. River crossings were very scary, but with caution and focus, I had no trouble at all even though the Grand Vitara isn't the highest 4wd around. I would absolutely use this company again if I could actually afford another long holiday driving around one of the most expensive countries on Earth. I really recommend them.

Did I mention the vehicle came with a free Wifi hotspot? Which, let me tell you, was absolutely indispensable. Saved me very, very often. XD

BAD Customer Service! Months before my arrival i sent them my flight itinerary saying i land at 9:50pm. A couple days prior to my arrival they sent out an email saying call this number when you land. By that time it was 10:10pm. I called the number and it goes to a voicemail saying we closed at 10pm call back tomorrow. Now im worried because im stuck at airport in a country I've never been to before and nobody is here to pick me up! After 20 minutes i finally called their emergency roadside number and they said they're closed and knew i flew in tonight but made no effort to contact me, just thought it would be fine to leave me at the airport. Now they said they have to call a guy in to help me and i have to pay 25,000isk (in cash) which is $180!!!! Two hours later i was leaving their office with the vehicle i rented! Horrible first experience.
