Hertz are one of the top picks for car hire in Iceland and offer the following benefits for those looking to hire from Keflavik Airport.
They are based in terminal. The airport do charge a significant premium in the form of an Airport Surcharge for on airport car hire. However Hertz include this in the price and taking that into account they are normally very good value.
They have one of the largest branch networks on Iceland. For those touring the island this can be a real benefit as, if you do have a problem help is not too far away.
Whilst they will take a imprint of your credit card they do not currently take a preauthorisation. This is a real bonus for those who hate having a large amount blocked on their credit card. They do not accept debit cards though.
Their cars are up to date, and they have a good range of SUV's and 4x4s which are very popular on the island.
When considering your options with Hertz do think about the following:
Like almost all Icelandic car hire firms Hertz do not cover damage to your car caused by Volcanic Ash or Sand (the winds in Iceland blow hard!) unless you take a package which includes Sand and Ash Protection.
Hertz do not cover cover the Underbody, Wheel or Tyre Damage, nor offer an upgrade which would protect them. This is designed to encourage users to be very careful when driving in Iceland, which can mean driving on rough roads. If you would like to consider a standalone excess insurance package which would cover these areas please do contact the Clarify team.
