Top 10 Budget Tips for Iceland

Traveling around Iceland working on our Rick Steves’ Iceland guidebook, I experienced some sticker shock. Since Iceland has no tipping custom, and taxes are included, you’ll pay exactly the price you see on the menu. Stock up at the airport duty-free store on arrival — with the lowest prices in Iceland — or at a government-run liquor store (called Vínbúðin). To stretch your budget, choose carefully, and don’t assume every museum is a worthwhile investment. For lots more advice on traveling to Iceland, check out the new Rick Steves’ Iceland guidebook.
