Iceland is notorious for its erratic weather, icy roads, and vast uninhabited areas with no gas stations in sight – all important factors to consider when choosing a rental car for a winter visit. With a complicated itinerary in mind and no time to waste on the side of the road, we partnered with Lotus Car Rental for some added peace of mind when the conditions took a turn for the worst. Despite Mother Nature’s darndest, we were fully prepared for whatever the island sent our direction, and had no trouble showing off their versatile RAV4 on some highland F-roads. As the Icelandic saying goes, “if you don’t like the weather, just wait five minutes.”
