Iceland is a small island country and much of it can be taken in by road even if you are only there for a short stay. Travelling in Iceland, along the major highway, which is a coastal route, is a pleasant and easy drive with a car hire. Inland, the terrain is a little trickier - the routes are little more than a network of unpaved roads, many of which are impassable in midsummer due to mud making conditions treacherous.
Iceland is in the Western European Time Zone. Western European Standard Time (WET) is the same as Greenwich Mean Time (GMT).
Icelandic is the official language of Iceland but English and German are commonly spoken as well, as you can easily testify with a car hire in Akureyri or other amazing destinations in Iceland.
The electricity in Iceland is 220 volts. The Continental two-round-pin plug is standard.
Booking your cheap car hire in Reykjavik is a great starting point for your holidays but there are other details you should look into. For instance, the exchange rates. The currency in Iceland is the Iceland Krona (ISK). Credit cards are accepted everywhere and ATMs are widely available.
