All of our insurance options are listed under the Extras section of our website, except for Collision Damage Waiver (CDW), which is included with your rental. Tryggingamidstodin Hf. (TM) is our insurance provider, and all of our insurance falls under their policy terms 220 (Third-Party Liability Insurance for Motor Vehicles) and 230 (Comprehensive Insurance for Motor Vehicles), which you can access here. Here is a quick overview of our Insurance options:
Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) is included with all rentals. It is standard vehicle insurance and limits the driver's liability to EUR 2,500.- It is possible to waive this insurance if your own insurance provider requires you to do so, but we do not recommend it. If anything happens to the vehicle, you will need to pay the full damage before leaving our office, no matter how high the cost is.
Third-Party Liability Insurance is Included with all rentals.
Premium Package Plus is fully comprehensive insurance. It reduces the self-risk to zero on all insurances to give you total peace of mind and also includes free services like vehicle lockout, incorrect fueling, and dead battery assistance. The price is EUR 55 per day.
Premium Package includes all of the extra insurances that we offer for a discounted price of EUR 35. This means the self-risk depends on the damage; for example, for a collision or dents, the self-risk is EUR 600 (SCDW Insurance), and for Sand & Ash damages, the self-risk is EUR 1,000. For gravel chips, theft, or flat tires, the self-risk would be zero.
Super Collision Damage Waiver (SCDW) is the same insurance as CDW but lowers the self-risk to € 600 for a fee of € 20 per day.
Gravel Protection covers damages to the entire front of the camper van, including the windshield, headlights, and hood, caused by gravel that gets thrown at the rental car by another car. There is no self-risk, and the insurance costs € 10 per day.
Scratch & Dent Insurance Don't worry about smaller scratches or dents (less than 3 cm) by getting the S&D insurance. 0,- deductible on this type of damage will give you that peace of mind. The cost is € 15 per day
Tire Insurance covers you from all tire costs if you get a flat tire. 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. There is no self-risk, and the insurance costs € 10 per day.
Theft Insurance protects you from paying any self-risk if the camper van is stolen. If you do not have this insurance and the vehicle is stolen, you will only have to pay a self-risk of € 2,500, but with this insurance, there is no self-risk, and it costs € 5 per day.
Sand & Ash Insurance covers damages to the camper van caused by sandstorm/ash. Self-risk is € 1,000, and the price is € 5 per day.

Even though there are some cases of Covid-19 in Iceland, it has not been categorized as a high-risk area like some other European countries. Iceland has currently not set any travel restrictions to Iceland from other countries, although unnecessary travel to/from France, Germany, Spain, China, Italy, South Korea, and Iran is strongly discouraged.

If you are renting a Happy 2 or Happy 4x4 camper, you can add a roof tent to your rental during checkout. Your camper will then be equipped with a roof tent, which adds sleeping space for 2 people. We use the trusted medium-sized Columbus roof tents by Autohome which you can read more about here. You can also see photos and dimensions of the roof tent on the Happy 2 and Happy 4x4 info pages.
