Introducing the Driver Guide... Your New Travel Mate!

22.10.2018 | Camille Beuvard

Have you ever dreamed of going on a roadtrip where all you have to do is let your mind wander and focus on the moment? Without the worry of searching for directions, accommodation or loosing time not knowing what’s to see around? The very idea of studying the travel guides make you feel tired already? Time to introduce you to our Driver Guide, that will soon become your best travel mate. Easy-to-use, saving you time and allowing you to make the most of your Icelandic experience.

Reduce Paper Clutter and Protect the Planet

When booking a self-drive tour with us, you won’t get a printed itinerary. Instead, we have put our years of knowledge and experience to good use, by designing an innovative and comprehensive A-to-Z app including all the information you need on your trip. A joint effort to facilitate your journey and keep with our commitment of reducing our environmental footprint, in line with our environmental policy at Hey Iceland.

When you arrive in Iceland and pick up your rental car at the airport, an internet-connected tablet will be handed to you to accompany you throughout your trip. The app is already downloaded so all you have to do is log in with your Hey Iceland booking number and the email used when booking the trip, and your personalized itinerary will come up.

Stay informed in the most remote areas

Dotted with a GPS navigation system, the Driver Guide does not only get you to your destination but also suggests you must-see stops and optional activities along your trip, from a selection of over 3.000 places of interest, to add to your route at the tap of a button. At the end of the day, it takes you to your accommodation for the night and shows your electronic voucher. Less paper, more value!

You are more than welcome to take the tablet and use it at your accommodation, to check the weather forecast, road conditions for the next day, and keep an eye on the aurora forecast, to maximize your chances. You can also check your mapped itinerary, estimated driving distances and times, and plan your day accordingly.

Or you can simply use the tablet to keep yourself informed and read the local news.

Share your experiences!

The tablet is equipped with Wi-Fi and 4G connectivity, meaning you can turn it into a Wi-Fi hotspot, from any places and chat with your friends and family back home, or communicate with our team about your trip. If you post pictures of your trip on social media, please make sure to tag us @heyiceland or to use the hashtag #heyiceland . We will be happy to follow your journey and repost your pictures! 

Now we really can’t wait for you to try the Driver Guide and share your experience of it. While waiting for your next visit to Iceland, we invite you to browse our selection of self-drive tours here and read more about the Driver Guide here. See you soon!
