6. What additional insurance can I purchase?

- Super Collision Damage Waiver (SCDW) will lower the own-risk fee in case of an accident.  We always recommend purchasing at least the SCDW so as to lower the own-risk fee down to 50,000 - 175,000 ISK.  


- Gravel Protection (GP) will protect damage to windshield, headlights or body of the car. The self-risk fee if you purchase this extra insurance covers this type of damage. Whereas if you are not covered, CDW or SCDW self-risk fee will be applied. Not available for all vehicles.


- Sand And Ash Protection (SAAP): In high winds and dry weather the ash from the volcanoes and sand in the south coast can cause huge damage to the cars and all the cost has fallen on the renter, until now. By purchasing SAAP the self-risk fee in case of damage from sand and ash is significantly lowered to 175,000 ISK.

- PREMIUM & ZERO RISK Insurance Package: We highly recommend to hire either PREMIUM or ZERO option.

Then you will have every insurance option at a very reasonable price.

7. What are the most common causes of car incidents?

The most common incidents when driving in Iceland are:  


- Meeting livestock (mainly sheep) on the road.

- Losing road grip when going from asphalt to gravel roads.

- Veering off the pavement.

- We don't recommend to drive if the wind excess 15 m/s.

- Crossing unbridged rivers.

- Undue damage to tires and wheels by undetected flat.  


In order to avoid possibilities of accident, please be aware of these risks, be well informed and always pay close attention to your driving.
