What to do while in Reykjavik

A car hire is a fantastic way to see all that Rejkavik and Iceland has to offer. Start in the capital city and take in some of the main attractions, such as the dramatic architecture of the Hallgrimskirkja church or the Reykjavík Maritime Museum, before driving out in your hire car to some remote sites including the striking Thríhnúkagígur volcano or relaxing Blue Lagoon spa. 

Summer in Reykjavik

It might not get warm enough for sunbathing, but Reykjavik in the summer offers sunny days for enjoying both the city and the countryside. Laugavegur is the main commercial district where you can find all varieties of cute shops and cosy cafes. Balance this out with some nature exploration by observing some of the local wildlife such as magnificent whales or puffin colonies and you can experience Iceland in the glorious sunshine of summer.

Fabulous service by Grzegorz! Recieved a nice upgrade as Sixt Platinum member. Recommended branch!



Because I have now read previous, negative comments...


The English skills of the branch employees are fine - no communication issues there.

Yes, SIXT (and other rental car companies) advise to get insurance for sand/gravel - so check with your credit card company if they cover this already. SIXT did explain all insurances but at no point pressure me to buy insurance that I already have.

They do have offers with kilometres restrictions and without. So be careful what you book. I have booked without restrictions, and everything was fine.

The car I received was an upgrade, in perfect condition and had about 7800km on the clock. I suggest to clean the car before you return it - A) good manners (you do flush the toilet before you checkout a hotel, don't you?) and B) you can spot scratches/dents easier that way and possibly avoid discussions. Many petrol stations do have water hoses free of charge, so this should make things easy.

And a general advice for the big rental car companies / hotel chains: book directly through their official channels

Rep was very friendly, knowledgeable and helpful in getting to our hotel.

While it took a while to get our car, it was made worthwhile. Our Toyota Yaris got us around all the sites we wanted to see in an economical fashion. The return trip was efficient and troublefree.

Returned our SUV today after a Road Trip and got a free drive with the luggage back to the Airport. Everything was fine and charged as aspected. Thanks to Jersey, very friendly employeer!

Everything was really good. They were so kind and clear. They help us to understand everything about the rent and about our car, with a lot of patience. The price was clear and fair. I suggest to everyone to rent here a car, if you need it
