One stop made on the way to and from the city centre

Airport Direct aims to give the best possible service to their customers. Included in the standard price is pick up and drop off at Reykjavík main bus stop at Skógarhlíð 10, 105 Reykjavík and Hamraborg in Kópavogur. Besides that one stop, we drive straight, and on schedule to our Reykjavík main bus stop.

Smart Bus

The Hotel Connection for Airport Direct Economy is operated by Smart Bus. Smart Bus is a pick up and drop off service for Airport Direct, Destination Blue Lagoon and Reykjavík Sightseeing, operated on bright green buses.

Instead of having multiple operators picking up passengers on different shuttles, we only use one per departure time, meaning a eco-friendlier pick up that minimises traffic in the city centre. Smart Bus transfers you to Reykjavík main bus stop where you will find your bus waiting for you, ready to take you to your flight.

To sum up, look for a bright green Smart Bus if you booked hotel connection.

The Reykjavík City Bus Stops

With a Hotel Connection we pick you up from your hotel, guesthouse, or designated bus stop if you are staying in the restricted area in downtown Reykjavík.

The reason behind the restricted area is that Reykjavík City aims to keep the small scaled city centre a pleasant and safe place for everyone with less bus traffic. Hence, the city of Reykjavík offers special pick up and drop off places. The bus stops are located in and around the city centre and are easily accessible. Most hotels in restricted area are within a 5-10 minute walking distance from bus-stops.

If you prefer a door to door service or are staying outside the downtown area then perhaps Airport Direct Premium or Airport Direct Private is the transfer for you.
