WTF is an „Iceland quickie“

Let´s face it. Taxi drivers on the whole seldom fit into the fun category of things. Understandably so. After all, this is a job that requires little effort and not even a personality it seems in many cases.

Being pretty well traveled, team Total Iceland has often been disgusted by our first introduction to a city or a country. Because most often a taxi driver is your very first touchdown with the country and its people. What do they do? It is well documented. Many scam travelers. Many fix the meter, a number takes a fat detour on the way and once in awhile they have no idea where they are going. This apart from the fact that few taxi drivers make an effort to make you feel welcome. Few throw in any fun facts or tips on the way and many do not give a hoot about you.

If you agree with us on this you might be interested in a service we are offering from May to August. One of our team of four will pick you up from the airport and drive you to your hotel or vice versa if you like. In a leisurely manner. You are, after all, on vacation and we are not a taxi company blowing you right away for the next customer.

So, how the hell is this any different from a basic cab?
