I was the one with the car rented from Eurocars through Icelandic Farm Holidays – I picked up my car at the airport, the only problem was getting used to driving a “Stick Shift” diesel, and that the car was one lot further from the door than I thought. Carrying my bags in the rain was only a minor inconvenience.. After getting used to the stick-shift, and the diesel I loved the car I had, a Scota Octavia which seemed to get great mileage- I’m guessing it was close to the advertised 50mpg, thank goodness because the cost of fuel is lots higher than I’m used to.
If you booked a tour of Iceland through Nordic Visitor, you were deliriously happy with the results, according to the tour operator’s website, http://iceland.nordicvisitor.com/travel-stories-and-testimonials/ . None of the thousands of tourists who have used Nordic Visitor reported experiencing even a minor glitch. Could that be because
° (a) no tourist ever had a problem?
° (b) the web image consultants are making sure no critical comment sullies the chorus of praise for touring with Nordic Visitor?
° (c) customers who report problems are ignored, and therefore their problems don’t count?
More than one answer can be correct.
As for the rental car agency, Dollar/Thrifty Car Rental does not appear to have a website in English under that name, although a comment on one site reported good experience with booking independently and picking up the car at Keflavik Airport. http://www.tripadvisor.com/ShowTopic-g189952-i223-k2865323-Hasso_Car_Rental_booked_online_ok_yet_no_car_available-Iceland.html
No word on dealing with the office in Reykjavik.
