“Worst rental experience - alleged 'damage' costing...”

Written on: 17/06/2016 by reuben874 (1 review written)

I am writing this review for the benefit of all readers who, like me a few months back, was trying to balance between paying a higher price with a reputable company, or paying a lower price with a less transparent company. Learn from my mistake - I ended up paying a higher price with an ironically named company, Faircar. I rented a car with the company in March 2016 for about a week. To be fair, the car itself ran fine, and the trip was enjoyable. During the collection process, on a Sunday, a… Read Full Review

“Made our trip easy!”

Written on: 15/06/2016 by Jredfern (1 review written)

We had a good experience renting with FairCar in November 2015. They were at the airport within 20 minutes of us landing and the car was as expected. Returning the vehicle was even easier. Very small company but very well organised for our liking. Thank you :)… Read Full Review

“Great Company, Great Car, and Great Staff”

Written on: 20/04/2016 by AllenJamison260 (1 review written)

From the moment Thor from FairCar met us at the airport to the time we returned the car after our week in Iceland, FairCar was a great choice. Thor was super friendly and helpful with our check in. He helped us and another customer get set up with our cars. Thor provided us with invaluable suggestions and tips for driving and making the most of our trip. Those tips proved useful and I have made the same suggestions to friends traveling to Iceland. I will not hesitate using FairCar in the… Read Full Review

We appreciated the service, all the explanations, the kindness and the availability. The car was perfect for our needs on this trip, and the tires with nails a very good thing.

“Cheap and easy”

Written on: 29/02/2016 by bae812 (1 review written)

We were met at the airport by our friendly driver. It was a bit confusing because we weren't sure where we were supposed to meet the driver, but once we found him, he was very kind and took us to the office which was close by. We got two vehicles which were nice and big and in good repair. We were given good directions to Reyjkavik and were on our way. The cars were reliable and served us well. Drop off was equally easy and we were driven to the airport in good time. Overall, it was a… Read Full Review

“Nice car, OK service. Reading this will save you money!”

Written on: 26/02/2016 by EricaKearney (1 review written)

We rented a car for 2 weeks, the car was clean and gave us no issues. When we rented it, we did our own inspection of the car and wrote down EVERY LITTLE MARK we found on the paper. Their office made a photocopy of this paper. It is CRITICAL that you do the same... When we brought the car back we requested a receipt showing no damage before leaving the rental lot, this is also CRITICAL. At this request, the attitude of the employee immediately changed from friendly to aggressive. They tried to… Read Full Review

“Excellent value and service ”

Written on: 26/01/2016 by Briana326 (1 review written)

We always hire a vehicle when we visit Iceland, on our recent visit we only required a small run around to assist with airport transfers and a couple of day tours. We were picked up at the airport soon after landing and transported to Fair Car which is about 5 minutes from the airport terminal. The car was ready and waiting and the staff were very organised and it did not take long before we were in the vehicle and driving off. We were given a sat-nav with the vehicle and staff asked if we… Read Full Review

I recommend everybody who reads this review, also to read reviews about faircar Iceland on trustpilot and tripadvisor etc. There you can read a lot af bad reviews from different customers about faircar who's claiming alleged damage. Thet do it always weeks or even months after you are back home by just charging your credit card. So be careful and don't rent a car with them.

“Great service, great car!”

Written on: 08/01/2016 by mattyhartford (1 review written)

The crew at FairCar Iceland was absolutely wonderful. I needed to change the time and location of our original pickup which they accommodated graciously, and upon pickup they were extremely friendly and thorough in explaining the rules of the road in Iceland. They also offered some great advice in terms of sights to see, places to visit, and some of their favorite restaurants. The car itself was perfect - we are a family of 5 (with 3 kids under 6 years old) and our car was a VW Caddy van which… Read Full Review

“"Five days in Iceland"”

Written on: 07/01/2016 by Michaelvan (1 review written)

I had a five day visit to Iceland with my daughter in Nov 2015. We used Reykjavik as our base and drove out each day to see the attractions we had picked out. So we did a lot of driving. The initial reason for choosing FairCar was there price and what was included at no extra cost. They are very competitive. We needed a 4WD because of the time of the year. The Nissan Qashqai 4WD was perfect. The young lady who set us up was very helpful and friendly. The same goes for the gentleman who… Read Full Review

Hi Christa2, my review was accurate and truthful. Admittedly I didn't hunt around too much for other reviews before I booked. But then you can bet your last dollar that there isn't a business like this that doesn't have some bad reviews. It's human nature. People have different expectations.

Faircar. is isn't a good company to rent a car. Their prices are low, but they compensate it by claiming 'so called damage' when you're back home.We had paid for 4 insurances and we're sure there was no caused damage. We paid in advance 617,66 EUR for rent a Nissan quasquai for 10 days in winter+ insurances, and we thaught we did a good buy. But, when we're home they took another 1130,74 EUR from our VISA. You can read a lot of same stories as ours. This link was first on their website. But when I asked them how it's possible they stay saing they are honest, while soo many clients have the same experience with them, they took away this link from their webiste on the 4th of december 2015. So they proof they want to hide something... So, do not let entice you by their low prices for rent because afterwards with their claim, you pay a lot more than you would pay in another company.

“Helpful, convenient and good value.”

Written on: 03/05/2014 by Hutchinsonzc74 (1 review written)

Hiring from this company was very straightforward. We were met at the airport and driven to the office so we could complete the paperwork etc there. The car was in good condition - all dents and scratches were marked on a diagram clearly, so we had no worries that we might be blamed for a scratch we hadn't made. We were also warned about which roads were very icy and which were OK (we were travelling in January). Our only problem with the car was not much of a problem....just that quite a few… Read Full Review

“Not only fair.. kind and professional as well!”

Written on: 28/04/2014 by Juder106 (1 review written)

Having limited time to look online, I emailed with many questions. I was very impressed with how quickly I received a response. The co-owner, Einar, replied thoroughly with answers in a very professional, polite manner and not the least bit pushy with sales. Being a AAA member, I compared prices and companies who accept AAA reward discounts. Though Faircars did not participate, their prices were still the lowest. Triple A gives about a 20% discount, so that shows just how fair their prices… Read Full Review
