Pickup & Return

Your modem comes in a orange reusable box/envelope. Please use the same box for return, pack it and drop to mailbox (fx at the Airport). When dropped in mailbox at the airport the only one handling our modem is The Icelandic Post. When dropped at storefront it goes through many hands and things can get lost as we do not have any return agreement with our pickup location partners.

We urge our customers to return the modem, fully charged to mailbox at the airport so we can prepare the modem for next customer.

Please take care of our orange box!
We try to reuse the orange boxes as often we can. Throwing away a good and healthy box is 
unnecessary.

All major deliveries will be made through personal service at Airport – Ten Eleven store,  Kvikk Store near airport & Ísbjörninn Polarbear Gift Store. It gives you a chance to pickup the rental package at arrival.

At TenEleven and Kvikk you can pickup all first day travel necessaries or just get a warm coffee.

At the very popular Ísbjörninn Polarbear Gift Store you can find the best brands in Icelandic design. From the smallest gift, to precious and more expensive ones, you can’t avoid buying something! Located in downtown Reykjavik. Open 10am to 10pm.

Deliver to a Domestic airport is a great option for those who fx go with direct flight from Kef Airport to Akureyri Airport. They can just pick up a modem at Akureyri arrival. Its also a great option if you suddenly need a Trawire Modem but are not near the capital.
