Self-drives are certainly on the rise as one of the major changes the travel industry is seeing. If you are planning a trip during COVID-19, can you think of any safer way to get from destination to destination than from the comfort and convenience of traveling in your own car? Rest assured you will be able to beat the crowds and enjoy the privacy that you or your group will have while exploring a foreign destination in a special rental vehicle. All you will have to do is pick up your car from the regional airport and hit the open roads with freedom and flexibility. You can follow a recommended route if you want, and see suggested sites only if you choose, depending on your interests and how busy they are, while enjoying the comfort of having pre-planned accommodations arranged for you in every city. Iceland is the perfect place for a self-drive, as the country is teeming with beautiful sites that are far and wide from border to border, and renting a car is one of the best ways to see it.
