Flybus (Iceland) - Reykjavík

Flybus (Iceland)

To/From the City-From/To the Airport: Flybus

I think this is the best way to link the Airport and the City.

It takes about 45-50 minutes to reach the BSI Bus Terminal. After it, if you have bought the Flybus Plus ticket (a bit more expensive), there is a free shuttle that, on request, takes you to some selected hotels and guesshouses.

On the way back, from the hotel to the airport, you have to tell at the reception of your accommodation about it, and they will tell you the time the shuttle (free again), will pick you up to take you to the bus terminal; then, to the airport.

Important Note: I have heard that that service is not for free any longer; check it.

The link gives excellent and accurate information about everything I have described above. For the prices, also check the link.

It's also possible to book online; you only have to board the bus and show the confirmation e. mail the system will send you once you have booked.

Iceland - Reykjavík

Iceland

Car Hire

The most important reason to visit Reykjavík is for the country itself, and many of us (myself included), prefer to go on our own, so, we hire a car.

Here is a selection of car hire companies in Reykjavík in particular and Iceland in general:
Alp-Budget
Átak
Avis
Berg
Hertz
Rás Car Rental
SS Car-Rental

Before you book, take into account where you want to collect/return the car, not all the companies have offices at the airport or Reykjavík.

Keflavík International Airport (Iceland) - Reykjavík

Keflavík International Airport (Iceland)

Airport-Reykjavík-Airport

There are some ways to go to/from the airport:

- By Car
- By Taxi
- By Bus

The link gives info about the possibilities plus parking and Car Hire.

The best option for me, unless you are lucky enough to know people there who take you in their own car or you rent a car, is by a bus called Flybus (see the next tip).
