I have booked a flight to Iceland. We (me and three friends) have planned to travel through Iceland by car. However, I'm shocked by the prices.
In the Netherlands, at companies like Europcar and Hertz, I can rent a decent car for €350,- for ten days. In Iceland the same companies charge me €1100,- for ten days for the same type of cars. This is almost three times the price!
I do not understand why the difference in price is so big? Am I missing something? I have checked multiple companies now (Hertz, Europcar, City Car Rental, Sixt) but all their prices seem comparably expensive.
I case someone has tips for where to search for a cheap car. I'm looking for a simple car that fits four people and some baggage for 9-10 days. Pick-up and drop off location in Reykjavik.
