About us



We are a new, family owned car rental in Iceland. Our main goal is to provide new, dependable cars at competitive prices. We will strive to provide excellent service for all our customers. The owners are all well-traveled and they know what great service is supposed to be. This will be our main goal in running the company as we want our customer to enjoy and explore Iceland in the best way possible.


The owners are educated in tourism and have worked in tourism in Iceland for many years. We will help you plan your trip at no extra charge. Get a glimpse into were the local would want to go.


We will only offer brand new 2018/2019 model cars. They will all have great service records so you can go Away on your adventure in Iceland. If anything should happen to the car, we will replace it as soon as possible. All our cars are equipped with a GPS location devise and 4G router. We will be able to let you know if you are headed towards bad weather or if there is something about to go wrong with your car. The system will let us know immediately and we will contact our customers. If the car needs to be replaced we will bring another car to your location. Your safety is most important to us!


If you don’t find the car you want on our website try sending us an email and see if we can’t accommodate you. You’ll be surprised as to what we can arrange.


Book with us and get AWAY for an adventure!
