I'm planning to rent a SUV from Reykjavik cars from Iceland but am confused with many options for insurance.

What are the insurance policies I do need to take to avoid any major issues?

  • I'm curious why you didn't just contact the rental companies or your own insurance company and see what they/it says? – CGCampbell Jun 26 '15 at 16:48
  • Thanks Campbell. But as a visitor, wondering what is essential and what is not? – nsivakr Jun 26 '15 at 16:59
  • Depends where you're planning to drive and how far, it's a question of risk after all. I'd argue it's a good idea to take the windshield insurance – blackbird Jun 26 '15 at 17:17
  • Thanks blackbird. Based your knowledge, I believe, you had been to Iceland few times. – nsivakr Jun 26 '15 at 17:32
