Protection packages

At Thrifty Car Rental Iceland we care about your safety while driving in Iceland. When you hire a rental car it is important to know about your coverage and availability of extra protection. Vehicle damage is very costly in Iceland due to the high repair cost. For your peace of mind, we offer the Premium Protection package which has very extensive coverage and has ZERO excess.

In addition to the Premium Protection package, we also provide a Standard Protection package (SCDW) which can significantly lower your excess in case of any damage. This SCDW covers common areas of concern such as windows, tires, and gravel, ensuring you have added protection while exploring the beautiful landscapes of Iceland.
