First time poster, we are travelling to Iceland for 7 nights in mid-February, we had initially hoped to drive the whole of route 1 but after reading many posts and warnings regarding daylight and weather at this time of the year we have decided to fly to Egilsstaðir and drive the south road back to Rek.
Has anyone previously rented a car from Egilsstaðir airport, I can find the big multinational companies but wondered if any on here could pass local knowledge on a cheaper provider? We would be dropping the car in Rek/Kef so this might limit our options somewhat.
If you want to hire a car at Egilsstaðir and return it to Keflavík I´m afraid only the international companies have this kind of deal. However, you could check https://www.holdur.is. They are affiliated to Europcar but it´s an Icelandic company and their headquarters are in Akureyri.
