    I've heard of Blue and they seem good and read about www.sixt.com , but have some skepticism. You look at the site and $10/day is hovering and when you see the real deal is over $30. Typical....(fill in expletives).

If you fly Icelandair, they own the Herz agency in Iceland and they might give you a better deal if you book your rental car +flight. Book your car before you come to avoid sales tax and do not do business with rentals that rent out old cars although cheep.
    We are thinking of going to Iceland next year, how much is the sales tax? Also, is there a VAT type of tax, or is this the sales tax you mentioned?

    I would advocate not taking the ring road, in fact not going to any of the usual sightseeing spots in Iceland.

    The ring road is a good road for getting to the roads you really want to take;-)

They were easy to deal with and the rate was good. Yes, a Yaris is small but it's fully appropriate for the roads in Iceland, which are not wide. And with a national speed limit of 100kph on the bigger roads you won't need any more car than a Yaris or equivalent microbox.
    Hi
    How much you have paid to the car rental company for whole trip???

    Sorry but at this point I honestly can't recall but you should be able to find out easily enough on the web. It was somewhat more than a US rental from one of the less expensive national firms (Enterprise, Alamo, Budget, National, for example), but not terrifyingly so. Fuel was around USD8.50 per gallon when we were there.
