We could not have asked for a better camper van rental experience during our 8-day Ring Road trip. They took care of everything we needed and were super friendly throughout the whole process. If you're on the fence, just do it. We couldn't imagine seeing Iceland any other way!
My husband and I had such an amazing time in our cozy camper! It was a wonderful vehicle that had everything we needed. One of the many great things about Cozy is that many items were already included with the rental (towels, pillows, cooking stove and much more). Other camper companies charge you for everything. The down feather douvets were so comfortable and we slept really well!
Birkir and Harpa are the kind of wonderful people that you want to rent a camper from. We had an issue with our passports when flying to Iceland and we had to miss our flight. Instead of charging us for the day of booking that we missed, Birkir refunded us for the day we had been delayed. Birkir answered all of our questions and took such good care of us. He made us feel like family and has a genuine passion to give us and others an incredible Iceland experience.
I highly recommend Cozy Campers to anyone that wants to have a great and wonderful Iceland experience.
CozyCampers gave us an excellent experience! Their vehicle was exactly as promised and met our needs perfectly. It performed extremely well in many driving conditions (e.g. bumpy dirt roads). It was comfortable to live in, and we lived in it for an entire month! The staff is very friendly and very interested in all our inputs. On the few occasions we called with a question they were available and helpful. I highly recommend them and would definitely rent a campervan from them again without blinking an eye.
Birkir, Harpa, John and the rest of the Cozy Camper crew leaned over backwards to make our experience excellent. They made us feel like we were their only customers.
We rented for four wheel drive van for a full 4 weeks. Over that period we drove more than 5,000 kilometers, at least 1,000 of which were on dirt roads, including numerous river crossings. We were most impressed by the VW Transporter and the interior furnishings Cozy Camper had designed and installed. The bed was very comfortable. The heater was a welcome feature on cold evenings and mornings. The refrigerator kept our food fresh day and night. And then there's the party lights! Personally, the most impressive part of the setup was the VW's drivetrain. It has a 7 gear transmission that works both automatically and manually. Each of the 4 wheels is driven independently, so, unlike vehicles with differentials, 3 of the wheels still had power when one slipped. I was really impressed how the vehicle could climb up the bank of a river at the end of a crossing.
Traveling in any campervan is a great way to see Iceland. The freedom to explore is exhilarating. Traveling in a Cozy Camper 4WD van is even better because your freedom to explore is even more limitless.
A hint...There is a great campsite called Lava Hostel about 10 minutes from Cozy Camper's office. This is handy for first or last night. Our blog is Marshalls OnTheMove.
We rented the cozy auto old school, and we had a great time! The camper was everything we needed- a comfy bed, enough space for 2 people, and perfect for cooking simple meals. We had some issues with the chimney leaking during a heavy rain storm, and the staff was very responsive. We also had a mix up with one of the tours we were signed-up for, and the staff waited around a few minutes after closing time to get us checked out and to our hotel. Great service! Highly recommend!
Been meaning to get this review written. We rented a Cosy Time van for 2 1/2 weeks mid May. We couldn't say more positive things about this company. The pick up was easy, having gotten to the bus station from the airport with Flybus. They spent time explaining all the things to know about the van. Though for Americans, we have a little different reverse position for manual cars. European cars also have a little ring below the knob you pull up to move the stick shift to get the vehicle in reverse. And...for Americans....don't forget those ubiquitous speeding ticket cameras throughout Europe/Iceland. The car ran so smoothly that it was a little too easy to speed so be careful.
The inside renovation of these cargo vans has been planned perfectly with a map of the country inside, netting for storage, room to sit easily and even cook inside on rainy/windy days. The little powered cooler kept milk and food nice and cold. The bed was comfortable and there was plenty of storage room for gear. What was included for cooking was all you needed. And the gas mileage was phenomenal.
We had one problem with heating early on and the very next day the owner drove a new vehicle to our camping spot so that we could switch vehicles. Really nice.
It can be windy in Iceland and at one point the office sent an email to all renters to be wary of dangerously high winds in certain areas. A really good reminder about safety.
So these folks are honest and will take care of you well. We would recommend that anybody choose this company to rent from.
I can't say enough nice things about this company and there campervan. It has been my first campervan experience and the freedom to explorer at my own pace without having to get to booked hotels has meant my 5 days around Icelands ring road was able to adapt as I drove allowing my to see so much more than I had hoped.
