Iceland 19 years old Solo Travel From UK

Jump to last reply

New to Fodors.. Can anyone give me advice on how to get around in Iceland?

I'm from England UK and want I am planning on travelling to Iceland for 7-14 days around June 2016. I've always wanted to explore Iceland as the nature there inspire me so much. I am going alone and need advice as to what I can do and how I get around in Iceland. This will be my first time travelling alone but i feel ready.

I know the minimum car hire age in Iceland is 21. But I hear there is such thing called a 'young drivers fee' Are there any companies out there that will allow me to rent a car at my age (19) also I want to keep costs as minimum as possible. How much would temporary insurance be too? If renting a car is out of the question I want to know if there is any other way to travel around and get the most out of Iceland. I am really excited about travelling to Iceland alone but feel lost as to what to do and how to do it.

Should I book a hotel in Reykjavik or just camp out in a car for my whole journey as I want to get the most out of the natures of Iceland.

Please get back to me with advice about Iceland and what I need to see. Also how I should structure my days and what form of transport I can use to get to the places.

Thankyou
