The staff at the main (orange) desk inside the airport as you come out of arrivals were super friendly and helpful! I needed additional transport from Reykjavik Bus Terminal to B14 Hostel, which they ran a service via smaller buses for a very reasonable 1,100 Króna. They were well organised (even when I was put on the wrong bus, they quickly realised and made sure I was on the correct one!), and got me to my final destination. Would highly recommend if it's your first trip to Iceland as it was a very pleasant experience and journey that took about an hour as I was the last stop.

A comfortable trip from Keflavik airport to our hotel in Reykjavik and back. Our driver for both journeys, Martinez (unsure of spelling, apologies), was lovely and punctual and drove very safely on the icy roads. We would definitely contact him again when we return to Iceland.

Had an amazing time in Iceland for our son’s 21st birthday! The transfer was seamless and our driver very friendly and helpful - would definitely recommend :-)

Very good. It would be nice if the exact bus stop number could be given in the future.

Driver was fabulous. On time and very polite. Would definitely use again!
