Iceland Rent camping equipment





Website & Order


How long in advance should I book the equipment?
It is best that you place your order with 48 hours notice or by just coming to our store during opening hours.
What is your privacy policy?
Any personal information you give us (name, address, email, etc.) will never be given to anyone. We do not share it, sell it or use it for any other purposes than contacting you about your order.
How can I be sure that the online payment is secure?
Our website uses TLS 1.2 and our e-commerce platform is PCI Compliant (PCI DSS).
All credit card information is processed by SaltPay and we never receive access to them.
What exchange rate do you use?
Our system only processes one currency, euros (EUR).
Prices indicated in dollars (USD) or Icelandic króna (ISK) are automatically updated and reflect the current exchange rate.
Are rental prices on the website and at the office the same?

Yes, they are, and always will be the same.
There is no price difference between ordering on the website or in person.

Can I rent gear for more than 21 days?
Yes, and we will even give you any extra days after the first 21 days for FREE, except the rental of a Wifi.
Just send us an email after you have placed your order, indicating that you would like to use the gear for longer. 
Do you accept bookings for groups?

We typically consider a group to be a booking that includes, for example, more than 3 tents and related equipment. If you are in charge of a group and want to book some equipment, please be in contact with us. We will give you further information related to group rental (pick up and drop off during opening hours and deposit). Please note that due to our structure and process we usually do not work with large groups because it disrupts our workflow. 

Do you have packages?

No, because one size does not fit all. We tried some years ago and figured out it was not working. Instead, we offer full flexibility on product choices. Please contact us if you need any help to choose your equipment.

There is one exception to this: if you hire a car through our website from Enterprise you are able to get a premium camping package during the rental time of the car.
