Meeting Point during Opening Hours

During opening hours, our shuttle comes back and forth between our office and the airport depending on our client's arrival and departure. Our office is located 5 minutes drive from the airport. 

Pick up outside of the departure hall.

How long should we expect to wait for the shuttle?

You should not wait for our shuttle for more than 5-10 minutes. We ask a few days before your rental for your flight number. It allows us to track when your plane lands and to be on time to pick you up at the airport. 

By experience, it takes 45 minutes to go through the customs and pick up your luggage so you will be in our office around 45 minutes or 1 hour after your flight arrival. If you don't see your shuttle after a few minutes outside of the departure hall, you are always free to call us at (+354) 519 4141.

Airport Pick-Up Outside of Opening Hours with Self-Service

Who is eligible for the Self-Service?

Clients who booked their vehicle on the Lava Car Rental's website with the Full Protection package and have a pick-up outside of opening hours.

To order self-service, please complete the online check-in from 2 to 5 days before your arrival. More info about the self-service here.

Meeting point Outside of Opening Hours with Self-Service

Once the self-service is ordered, a scheduled shuttle will wait for you in the airport arrivals with a sign and give you a free ride to the Lava Car Rental's office. Our office is located 5 minutes drive from the airport. 

If you have any questions, please call (+354) 519 4141 or contact us at info@lavacarrental.is
