Finding cheapest Iceland car rental company

In this article I will review Iceland rental car companies websites to find out which ones are cheapest.

There are thousands of people looking to rent a car in Iceland each week and there are many car rental companies who are trying to do the best that they would be chosen. I am checking all cheapest (at least companies say that about themselves) rental companies in Iceland to rent a car in Keflavik airport for one day during busy summer peak.

Also always you can get cheaper deals if you are booking car months ahead.
