Wait for your shuttle outside the departure hall.

Our shuttle runs back and forth between our office and the airport depending on the client's arrival. Please provide your flight number a few days before your rental so we can track your arrival time and ensure a smooth pick-up.

Estimated Arrival Time: Typically, customs and luggage collection take about 45 minutes. You can expect to reach our office within an hour of your flight landing.

Airport Pick-Up from 10 pm to 4:30 am


At Lava Car Rental, you can pick up the car outside of opening hours (from 10 pm to 4:30 am) with the self-service option. If you've booked your vehicle with the Full Protection package on our website, require a pick-up outside of opening hours, and have completed online check-in, you are eligible for pick-up between 10 pm and 4:30 am. Please remember that online check-in closes 8 hours before pick-up. For further information about the Self-Service, visit this page.

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

The pick-up process remains the same as during the day. You'll be transported to our office to retrieve your keys from a keybox using the code provided via email. Locate your car in the parking lot and hit the road. More info about the self-service here.

If you can't locate our shuttle, or have any inquiries, don't hesitate to call us at (+354) 519 4141 or email
