Q & A

Questions and Answers
Do you offer 3 or 4-person campers?

Yes, you can simply add a roof tent to your Happy 2 or Happy 4x4 booking during checkout. The Happy 2 and Happy 4x4 allow 2 people to sleep inside the van and the roof tent adds space for another 2 people.

My flight arrives before you open. What should I do in the meantime?

Unfortunately, some flights arrive in Iceland REALLY early. Our office opens at 8 AM and our free airport shuttle starts running at 8:15, so you might have some time to kill until we can pick you up. Thankfully, the airport has free WiFi, some comfortable chairs, and a coffee shop to make the wait easier. Around 8:15, please look out for us holding a Happy Campers sign with your name on it.

What are your opening hours?

We are open all days from 8:00 to 17:00. Yes, that includes Sundays!

I can’t book a campervan on your website. What should I do?

If you get an error saying “No car in this category available on this date”, I’m afraid we don’t have any available camper vans. If you get an error saying “This category is not available at this time”, it means that you chose a date that is during our closing season (December-February). Our booking engine on our website has the most accurate and updated information about our availability and is the best place to book. Bookings are automatically scheduled in the most efficient way possible, so if you are getting an error, unfortunately we cannot help you find availability even if we wanted to. If you are flexible, try changing your dates slightly to find available rental periods and/or change the camper van category. If you get the error "Billing failed" it's most likely an issue with your card. Either try another card or contact your card provider/bank to make sure it's not blocking the transaction from going through. Sometimes there are limits in place to protect you from frauds for example. If nothing is working please contact us and we'll figure it out together.

Do I need a sleeping bag?

The campervan comes with a sheet, pillows, blankets, and light comforters, which most people are comfortable with during the summer months. However, we also include sleeping bags as a part of our winter kit in the low season (Oct-April). That leaves the mid-season (May and Sept) as the main season we strongly recommend bringing (or renting) sleeping bags as the weather can vary a lot in those months. Sleeping bags are also recommended in the summer time for those who get very easily cold.

What is the minimum rental period?

The minimum rental period is 3 full days (72 hours). You are welcome to rent the camper van for a shorter period of time, but the charge will be for 3 days.

Can I cancel my reservation?

Yes, no problem. You can cancel your reservation but make sure to give us a 20 day notice. Our cancellation policy requires that you must send us an email to info@happycampers.is 20 days prior to your pickup time! If you let us know 20 days or more in advance, your 30% deposit will be refunded completely. If not, your deposit is not refundable - no exceptions.

Do you offer a FREE shuttle bus service?

Yes, we offer a free shuttle bus service to our customers at Keflavik International Airport and within the greater Keflavik area. This service is both available for customers who are picking up their camper van and those who are returning it. Please select the shuttle service option when making your booking and type in your information. We pickup from the airport every hour on the 15th minute (every 30 minutes the last two hours of the day), and typically it takes around 30-50 minutes to get through baggage claim and custom so try to select the pickup time at least 30 minutes after you land.

If you don’t have your address or flight information yet, don’t worry, you can always send it to us later but make sure to do so as soon as possible. We will send you a reminder a few days before your rental starts. Our shuttle will give you a ride from the airport or hotel to our office, where you will pick up your campervan and begin your rental. When you return the camper van, you can use our free shuttle to get back to the airport or your hotel in the Keflavik area, but the shuttle will run approx. every 30 minutes, so there is no need to schedule it in advance. The shuttle service is available from 08:15-17:00 for arriving customers but from 08:00-16:30 for customers returning their campervan.

How can I pay for the rental?

You can confirm your booking by paying either a 30% deposit or for the entire rental during our secure online booking process. When paying online, you will need to use a credit card. If you pay the 30% deposit online, you can pay for the remaining 70% at our office with a debit card or credit card. This card does not need to be the same card that you used to pay the 30% deposit. We cannot accept cash in any currency, including Euros and Icelandic Krona or any other payment method, such as a wire transfer or PayPal. Just remember that we always need a valid credit card from the lessee (driver) for security and insurance reasons.

Is insurance included in the rental price?

Yes, a Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) is included in the rental price, which limits the driver's liability to a certain amount. The liability amount is EUR 2.500,- for each accident. Please review the terms & conditions for CDW details before booking a campervan.

Where can we park/stay overnight?

New legislation prohibits parking overnight in a camper van outside organized campsites or urban areas. You may still set up a traditional tent in Iceland, with some restrictions. Please ask us about the details of camping with a traditional tent if interested. The most important thing to know is that different rules now apply to camper vans, so you always need to find an organized campsite to spend the night. Check out this map for information about campsites that stay open during the winter months.

Be happy camper and take advantage of some of the amazing campsites all over the country!

Where to Find the Best Icelandic Food and Traditional Dishes

Where to Find the Best Icelandic Food and Traditional Dishes

Published: 9. September 2019

Iceland's unique take on cuisine boasts a long history of ocean fare, sturdy lamb, dairy and hearty vegetables as the hallmarks of a Nordic diet. Traditional Icelandic food is meant to withstand and endure during long winter months where sunshine rarely graces its shores. When you bite into a traditional Icelandic dish, you’re experiencing a part of the country’s history and tasting your way back in time. But ask a foodie where their favorite places on the planet to eat are, and chances are high that Iceland doesn’t trend on their list...
