The answer to this question really depends on personal preference, as people’s needs for peace of mind can vary greatly. We have witnessed many cases where people regret not buying extra insurance due to a costly incident and also cases where people never use the extra insurance that they bought. That is simply the nature of insurance; it is highly valuable when you need it but useless when you don’t. We simply cannot make that decision for others.
We can, however, tell you that our top 3 most popular extra insurance options are gravel protection, the Premium Package, and the Premium Package plus. We always recommend Gravel protection as a minimum as it's the most common damage to our cars. Click here to see our insurance guide.
Before you make any decisions about extra insurance, make sure to read our Terms for more information about the included CDW insurance. Also, make sure to check with your regular car insurance policy and any other insurance policies that you may have, such as your travel insurance, credit card benefits, etc.
Yes and no. We at Happy Campers take severe precautions to minimize the effects of Coronavirus. Check out our blog for a detailed description of our Coronavirus procedures and the latest official information from the Icelandic government.
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.

The way most of our customers do it is that they take one of the Airport buses from Reykjavik to Keflavik airport. Once you reach the airport we could then simply come and pick you up and take you to our office which is pretty close. This is a pretty simple and economic option but you would need to let us know when to pick you up from the airport.
Another way would be taking the public bus number 55 which stops very close to our office at the bus stop "Tjarnarhverfi". It's a lower price than the airport bus but a little bit more complicated in my experience. You can see the bus schedules on their website www.bus.is.
The final and most convenient way is a taxi of course, but unfortunately, taxis are a bit expensive in Iceland and the ride would probably cost around 13,000-15,000 ISK (110-130 USD).
Prepaid credit cards and debit cards are accepted if the customer purchases the Premium+ insurance or the Happiest Bundle.
Yes and no. We at Happy Campers take severe precautions to minimize the effects of Coronavirus. In fact, we comply with the Clean & Safe protocol here in Iceland.
While the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) currently categorizes all of Europe as Level 3: High Covid risk, Iceland is the only exception categorized at Level 2: Moderate. This is a good example of the relative safety here in Iceland, from COVID and everything else for that matter. Once in Iceland, you need to follow local regulations that you can read more about at covid.is
