comment What is the quickest way to get a car from London to Iceland?
A comment as I'm not directly addressing the question - I've hired a car in Iceland in winter, and it was affordable (similar to UK prices) AND came with snow tyres fitted. You would be mad to drive there without snow tyres at certain times of the year.

comment Hiring a Ferrari in Italy
I was thinking just one day, due to the monumental cost. If longer periods mean cheaper, great! A week would be nice if it didn't bankrupt me.

comment Travel by working?
I think this is way too broad a question - could I suggest you narrow it down to either your own specific skills, or work available for unskilled people?

comment Where is this mountain with very striking bright colors?
Looks like the particular image in the question had some creative colour adjustment applied, and you probably shouldn't expect to see blues like that picture. The photos here seem a bit more representative.

comment Prepaid Debit Card for traveling in Europe from Israeli bank
Most banks and travel agencies in Israel should offer prepaid travel credit cards. I've used a couple that were branded in this manner (though neither purchased in Israel), but both were essentially rebranding a "travelex cash passport" card. I'd suggest looking at some local bank and travel agency websites as a starting point.

comment Does it makes sense to travel to Iceland during winter?
I had a very good time overtaking the snow plows plowing the ring road in my little rental car. A blizzard may hamper your travel plans, but worst case is you're stuck doing 20km/h behind the plow.
