Card doesn’t seem to work in parking meters

Current account card works at self-service petrol stations. Earlier reports of cards not working may relate to the prepaid card.

You can have your value added tax (VAT) refunded at Keflavík Airport at Arion bank which is located in the arrivals hall of the airport. Passengers must apply for their refund before checking in and must be ready to show the goods for which they are claiming a refund. Minimum spend ISK 6,000.

To take advantage of this ask the merchant to complete the refund form when you pay in store.
