Iceland Defender Rental

Hi. Silly question... anyone know where to rent a 90 in Iceland? Everywhere seems to be 110's. Just my wife and I going and we'd be fine with the smaller truck.

Aaron, My wife and I were planning a trip to Iceland this year but have to push it off till 2014. In our research I do not recall seeing D-90 's for rent only 110's. I will look in my file tonight. If I find rentals for 90's I will post the info.

If you are looking into 2014... http://glaciercarrental.is was the cheapest I found. By a lot. But they are out. They must only have 1 110.

I am probably going with http://www.geysir.is.

These are the regular 110's... not the super swampers with 38" wheels

FWIW, I haven't seen any rental 90's during our couple of trips there. I rented 110's each time. Maybe the additional wheelbase is required when crossing the lava fields.

Same here. I rented a 110 when I was there in 2004. Never saw any 90's but there may be other smaller 4x4 available to rent. Here's a pic from my trip. Had to cross the glacial river seen in the background. Fantastic trip.

Yeah... I am super excited. A bit nervous about the damage though... did anyone suffer or get hassled by the rental place for gravel or sand damage on paint etc. Everywhere seems to say that's a real problem on Iceland roads not to mention F roads.

Never posted these after our trip last year. Great time... Iceland is awesome. We rented a stock 110 but they ended up giving us a super swamper Puma with 35in tires and extended fenders. Looked a bit ridiculous but great wide stance in the heavy wind areas.

We rented from geysir.is. They were great to deal with.
