Check out our variety of extras and insurance options that you can book with any camparvan from Happy Campers
The Happy App is an all-in-one solution that comes installed on a tablet in your van. The app serves as a GPS, itinerary builder & library, WiFi hotspot with unlimited data, weather warning system, emergency service assistant, and more. Free with new vans but extra for EX-categories.
Make your adventure extra warm in the colder months (Sep – Apr) by renting a sleeping bag. In the summer, most customers are comfortable with the bedding included in the camper van rental, but if you tend to be cold, we suggest renting a sleeping bag any time of year.
0 Self-risk / deductible on all of our insurances for maximum protection and peace-of-mind. Also includes free services such as vehicle lockout, incorrect fueling, and dead battery assistance.
Take all available insurance in one package and get a better price.
Gravel Protection covers damages to the entire front of the vehicle (including the windshield, headlights, and hood) caused by gravel hitting the car. This type of damage can occur when gravel is thrown into the air by the tires of another vehicle.
Our sturdy roof tent adds sleeping space for 2 people to any Happy 2 and Happy 4×4 rental. We use the trusted Columbus roof tent by Autohome. Read more about it on our Q&A page. This item is not included in the Happiest Bundle.
Nothing makes us happier than firing up the BBQ after a long day of exploring Iceland. If you are a fellow grillmeister, rent our portable gas grill, which comes with everything you need for grilling, including utensils and a propane tank.
A 12V/230V inverter (Europe) or 12V/110V (American) will allow you to charge your electronic devices using the 12V “cigarette lighter” socket in the car. It also adds a couple of USB chargers to the car, which can be convenient to charge your phones and other devices.
A camping chair can make your trip a little extra special. You can sit in the perfect spot and watch one of our beautiful sunsets or bundle up and gaze at the stars. Be sure to check out our camping table for rent, too.
Our simple camping table makes it easy to enjoy a meal outside, or even inside in our larger vans. The collapsable table is simple to store in the van and lets you enjoy your meal, play cards, do the plank, or whatever makes you Happy.
Would you like to make your trip more relaxing by having more than one driver? It’s only fair that you get to enjoy the views from the passenger seat a bit, too. Just bring a valid driver’s license for all drivers and you’re all set.
Want to plant more trees in Iceland? Just add it to your booking and we’ll plant it for you in the Happy Forest. We’ll also send you a photo when we plant your tree(s) as a thank-you.
We welcome all adventurers, big and small. We have child seats of all sizes available for rent so that all family members can stay safe and comfortable on the road. All chairs have been inspected and we do not use expired chairs. Safety first.
For coffee lovers like us, the Bodum coffee press & thermos is as important as warm clothes. Just bring coffee and you’re ready to brew and drink fresh coffee every day while on the road. Caffeine is great, isn’t it?
Have you booked a van but not sure what to see and in what order? Let us do the hard work and create a detailed plan that you’ll have access to via our Happy Campers app and tablet in your van. Now that’s simple and easy.
Make your adventure easier by renting a GPS from us. You can change the language settings so you get directions in your own language (although we recommend keeping the keyboard in Icelandic so you can spell street names correctly).
Get our ultimate Happy Iceland eBook when you book a Happy Campers van. This is where we share all of our knowledge in one place. Our eBook covers every important topic about traveling in Iceland so you’re super prepared even before you get here.
This is the ultimate recycling station. Departing travelers leave their unused camper products for arriving travelers to enjoy, absolutely free. Stock up on the camping basics in our Free Zone.
We’re the only camper rental that includes cooking gas for up to 12 days (4-5 canisters). Not only do you save money but more importantly, you don’t have to spend time shopping for it when you run out during your trip.
For that extra bit of camping fun, pick up one of our yard games at the office for free. We got you covered with things like Kubb, frisbees, bocce ball, and more.
A Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) is mandatory in Iceland and we included it for free with every booking. This means that we waive the right to hold you fully liable for damages. Your maximum liability, or deductible, would be €2,500 (~$3,000), even if you total a €60,000 van.
Third Party Liability (TPL) Insurance covers damage to property your accident caused, excluding the van itself. It also covers injuries to others, including your own passengers.
Grab as many extra blankets as you need to stay warm and cozy during your trip.
Need an extra plate, can opener, or pot? Grab as much extra cookware as you need for your trip.
As a part of our mission to provide the best winter #vanlife experience, we make sure that all of our vans are equipped with studded winter tires, extra sleeping bags, a shovel, starter cables, and an ice-scraper. We also include an extended winter orientation at the office.
Is your flight super early or late? No problem! Return the van anytime and head over to the airport. We’ll take care of the check-out process the following morning. Automatically applied to all bookings with the dropoff time outside of business hours.
Bring the party wherever you go with this JBL Bluetooth speaker.
Planning on going some epic hikes? Rent our simple trekking poles and make the hike a bit more enjoyable.
Take the party to the next level with one of our Happy Guitars.
Safety always comes first, so we include a fire extinguisher and first aid kit in all camper rentals.
Luggage space is valuable, so you can just rent one of our (black) beach towels for your entire trip. Check out our higher-quality Happy Campers towels for purchase at the office as well.
The Super Collision Damage Waiver covers the same things as the CDW, but lowers the deductible from €2,500 (~$3,000) to €600 (~$700)
This insurance covers you in case of damage from ash and sand. Although rare, it is actually more common than most people realize and requires expensive repairs. Sandstorms are common in the highlands, and we live on an active volcanic island where anything can happen.
Protects you from liability in case the van or other included items get stolen. This only covers Happy Campers rental items, not personal items.
Don’t worry about smaller scratches or dents (less than 3 cm) by getting the S&D insurance. Zero (0) deductible on this type of damage will give you that peace-of-mind.
Adblue is used to clean up diesel emissions and we take that seriously. We guarantee that your van is stocked with Adblue for your trip.
If you damage a tire so that it needs to be replaced, you are not responsible for the cost. Just change to the spare tire, call our service phone, and we will guide you through the process of getting a new tire and you won’t pay anything.
