Who we are
We at Lava Car Rental are a local and small family-owned car rental company based in Iceland. We were founded in 2016 and, since then, we have been offering a great selection of rental cars for your road trip to Iceland, including economy small cars, 4WD/SUV vehicles and campervans. From the beginning, our goal has been to provide you with the right rental car for your trip and make sure that you explore Iceland the way that you have always dreamed of.
Since we started, we have had the pleasure to serve different profiles of travelers. We have met adventure and independent travelers, budget-savvy groups of friends, families with kids traveling together, and customers who value quality and luxury - and we have helped them find the rental car that best suits their needs.
We put at your disposal a wide range of brand new cars of different categories, gear transmission, features and price ranges, always at affordable rates. Our headquarters are conveniently located just by Keflavik International Airport, and we are ready to welcome you for your trip to Iceland as you land.
We understand that a vacation in Iceland takes a lot of careful consideration and it is our pleasure to accompany you during the entire process. At Lava Car Rental, we make every effort to give you a professional service and ensure that the car rental is the easiest part of your trip. We receive the greatest reward daily when satisfied customers come in returning a car with a great story from their trip and a smile on their faces!
Lava Car Rental was founded by 2 Icelandic entrepreneurs with 30 cars.
We won the Northbound Award “Car Rental of the Year” for car rentals in Iceland.
We expanded the fleet by adding 2WD and 4x4 campervans.
Our fleet reached 250 vehicles between the economy, 4x4 and campervan categories.
In 2022, our fleet is expected to grow bigger with around 500 vehicles in total.
We are also honored to mention that, this year, Lava Car Rental has been selected as a shortlisted nominee in the 29th annual World Travel Awards for Iceland's Leading Car Rental Company 2022 category.
Lava Car Rental began as 2 entrepreneurs and has now grown into a team, bound together by mutual respect, cooperation and openness.
