At Keflavik Airport, only four main car hire companies have their offices inside the Airport building; for the other ones, there is a shuttle bus service operating. Since I'll be arriving quite early at the airport to drop my car off (around 5 am), I was wondering if there is already a shuttle bus service this early, and if yes, when/how often it runs. Unfortunately, there is absolutely no information about this service on either the homepage of Keflavik Airport, nor on the sites of some the car hire companies which are out of the airport (like Alamo).

Does anyone know anything about this service?

    No first hand experience with this but there are a lot of flights that arrive/depart KEF between 5 and 8 each morning. Its the busiest time of day. I'd be surprised if the shuttle service wasn't running during the busiest hours.

  • We rented from SAD cars last September. Their traffic volume was small enough that the shuttle ran basically whenever someone showed up to drop off a car. Sep 5, 2016 at 2:55

So some first hand experience: the shuttle bus does operate fine around 5am, and it departs from each location around every 15 minutes

  • Did you find out when it started/finished?

  • @CMaster unfortunately no. Talking to other passengers it looks like it was already working at 4am
