Keflavik Airport in a nutshell
Keflavik Airport is the international airport of Iceland, some 40 kilometres to the south-west of Reykjavik. It was built by the Americans during the Second World War. For a long time, the airport was an important military base, but since the end of the Cold War the Americans have withdrawn their troops from Iceland. The airport processes two million passengers a year; Reykjavik Airport - near the capital - is used for domestic flights.
A special shuttle bus maintains the connection between the airport and the capital. There is also a special shuttle bus to a Motel nearby.
The Leifur Eiríksson Air Terminal offers a wide range of shops. Unlike many other airports, duty-free products can be bought upon arrival. Because alcoholic beverages are very expensive in Iceland, many people stock up here, in particular the Icelanders themselves. The airport houses a few business facilities. Also, there are banks, exchange offices and ATM machines, as well as wireless Internet.
In the aviation industry Keflavik Airport is indicated with the abbreviations KEF (IATA airport code) and BIKF (ICAO airport code).

Frequently asked questions
Is EasyTerra Car Rental the cheapest?
Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town.
What do I need to do when picking up a car?
To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.
Are there any additional costs?
Our rates are all-inclusive. Our reservation department will inform you in advance should additional costs apply. You can always cancel your booking free of charge if you do not agree (this must be done at least 48 hours prior to the start of the car hire period).
What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental?
In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car.
What is a worry-free label?
This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation.
