Cross Border Rentals are not allowed.
Your rental car in Iceland is permitted on the local ferries going from the mainland to the islands. However it is not permitted to take your rental car on board on a ferry from Seyðisfjörður. Any damage to the vehicle, either in transit or on the destination will be covered by the insurance purchased in accordance with the rental agreement. No compensation will be paid for damages caused by sea spray/seawater.
Excluded from insurance protection is driving the vehicle in prohibited areas set by official order or driving on ice, unbridged rivers and streams, foreshores and other off-road terrains.
Driving on roads:578, 622, F210, F323, F337, F578, F910 and F980 is not recommended.

Hello, I want to ask you if I want to rent a car and I want to order excess reduction waiver(reduces excess/deposit to 0) how to order this service? and does it mean you wount take a deposit from my credit card?
No, every company will hold a deposit. Reducing the excess will not reduce the deposit
where are you traveling to?
ohh I thought that excess and deposit are the same things... to Iceland
Subject to your country of residence you may be offered our extra insurance with our partner AXA
Some companies ask for a very high security deposit, which is held against the credit card until the car is returned. They do this, so you will be persuaded to take out the extra insurance at the desk to reduce the deposit.
It is normal for a deposit of around 300€
At STEP2 of our online booking process, click on a few different suppliers as they all offer different amounts of deposit. Next to each car photo is a link entitled TERMS & CONDITIONS , click on this and then on DEPOSIT, to view the size of deposit.
For example, CENTAURO 1050€, INTERRENT 300€, RECORD 950€, NIZA 1110€, FIREFLY 1110€
I hope this information is helpful.
