We have rented a car from Fara Ehf via Guide to Iceland recommended by the owner of our rented accommodation. Not only that we managed to save money towards the car rental but the service is also trouble free. Straighforward transaction with no hassle despite we did not get the car we originally booked (Hyundai Tucson) but the alternative car was just as good (Jeep Compass). We felt comfortable throughout our travels with the car right from start to finish travelling around the southcoasts and depite the different unpredictable weather conditions. I would not hesitate to rent a car again from this rental company.

Very easy booking system and once we got to Iceland, it was all just as easy. Very friendly staff, we got picked up from the airport and dropped off on the way back. The car was brilliant, quite new, we had no problems and the GPS and extra gadgets we got made exploring Icelandic easier. We’ll definitely use Fara again when we come back to Iceland.

I cannot fault the staff at Fara car rental. They were welcoming, picked us up on time from the airport and communication/info was excellent. The car we originally were hiring was a big Hyundai 4×4 that could hold 7 large bags as there were 5 of us travelling. When we got to the office we were told that car had been in an accident and was being repaired. They showed us another 4×4 but it only had 4 seats, then another 4×4, but it was too small and eventually they showed us a 4×4 that had just been returned and was in the process of being cleaned. The car was ready and they explained the car had returned with an electrical fault and the 2 front windows would not wind down. This was not a problem as it was -7 and we did not intend winding the windows down in winter. We put all our cases in the big boot and drove off around the whole Island. The car did not miss a beat and handled the very icy and snowy roads perfectly and it was very roomy and comfy. We drove on Route 1 all the way around and only filled the tank up 4 times, so even though it was a 3ltr V6 it wasn’t thirsty on the diesel. On our last night in Reykjavik the alternator fan belt snapped and the car was undrivable and we rang Fara car rentals up at 9:30pm. They answered the phone and told us their mechanic would be at our accommodation at 7:30am the next morning and if he was unable to fix the car they would arrange a taxi to take us to the airport. The next morning the mechanic was there on time and said the car would be collected and not to worry as he would get us a taxi to the airport. 30 min later the taxi arrived and took us to the airport. There was no problem with the taxi fare as Far Car Rental were paying for it and we caught our flight in plenty of time. I’ve wrote this long review with the faults the car had and encountered because I wanted to show you the service we received from the rental company. We knew about the front windows not working but we didn’t intend opening them anyway and as for the alternator belt snapping on our last night, that could have happened in any car. The main thing is they did not let us down. Thank you to the staff and I will hire from them again.

Great price for the right size and type of car that we needed for our family of 7 persons. The pick up service was so nice from the airport to the office of FARA and also very kind for the staff to give us a ride back to the hotel after returning the car. Car was clean and in good order. Would definitely go through Guide to Iceland to use FARA again.

I had my booking for a volvo xc 90 seven seated with fara through website guide to Iceland.I am so happy to say that my experience was fantastic and a truly professional one.We were a family of seven but on seeing our luggage Mr Geir and Mr Adam immediately changed our vehicle and gave us a nine seater that made our travel so much comfortable and we had a wonderful time.If we ever have an opportunity to visit Iceland again we will definitely book our transport through Fara.Highly recommended

Great experience, highly recommended! We arrived early in the morning and were ready to travel to Vik before they warned us to check road.is for road conditions. Turns out that all of the roads to Vik were closed due to high winds and we had to change plans. Due to the early notice, we were able to get our money back for our previously booked accommodations and stay in Reykjavik for the night instead. If they had not warned us, I’m confident we would have just tried to drive to Vik and ended up stuck in the middle of nowhere. Aside from that, the car was great and the 4×4 handled the ice and snow quite well. They didn’t have the Subaru we originally booked but gave us a brand new 2018 Hyundai, which I’m sure was an upgrade for free.
