Don’t be fooled by the name of SAD cars. While these babies are over 10 years old, they pack a punch in personality. Sure, they may not be the most attractive car on the road there were a few strips of – but seriously, do you want that pressure while driving down dirt/rocky roads?
I sure don’t – and we didn’t.
They also have repair shops all over the country just in case you do need a bit of help. We didn’t have to use them- we managed to go up crazy 15% inclines, drive through a crazy freak snow storm, and meander our way through sheep filled streets.
Meet SAD Cars: The cheapest car rentals in Reykjavik, Iceland. Not only are you able to return the car with a few scratches (but no dents!), but their policy regarding gas is awesome. You get what you get when you pick it up and you give them the car back with what is left.
Believe me. We cut it real close.
Our little SAD Car brought us so many adventures. We took it 1362 kilometers, spent $453 in gas, was a home, a kitchen, a furnace, and a laundry dryer over the course of our 7 day jaunt around Iceland. We didn’t manage to kill anything OR get into any bodily harm (I’m looking at YOU M, who had to climb out a previous car rental and strip down to your skivvies to push it out of rapid glacial waters).
We had a freaking blast. Like, this was the best idea we have ever had for traveling. Sure it was a bit hard on our budget but if you don’t see the rest of Iceland you are really missing out.
While we have quite a few other posts about our adventures, enjoy a few pictures from the EXTREMELY varied landscapes around this stunning country.
Disclosure: While we did receive a complimentary car, all opinions are our own. Go SAD cars!
