    Travel Tips

    • Most rental cars are not allowed on F roads (mountain roads) and driving your rental car on an F road will void the insurance policy. F-roads are often impassable due to poor conditions and are typically closed from September–June. If you find yourself on an F-Road, reduce your speed.
    • Off-road driving is strictly prohibited by law and is punishable by very heavy fines. Driving off marked roads damages fragile vegetation and can be dangerous for motorists.
    • Watch out for sheep and other animals in the road.
    • Headlights are required while driving in Iceland 24/7 even when there is extensive daylight.
