Lets start with some SAVING TIPS while traveling in Iceland or if living here:
1. Never buy the Water in the shops, it is free from the tap! and almost the same as sold in bottles. This is lesson number one.
2. Avoid the shop 10-11, 24/ 7, it is a tourist trap in many ways, with very high prices. The prices can be 10-140% higher than in the supermarkets, and low cost shops!.
3. You can often get very good Lunch deals in Restaurants, for quality meals. The price if comparing quality, free water, no tips etc., is as good or better than in most European or N-American cities.
4. If you have a pre-paid card from Vodafone and Nova, there are many offers in their app, even like two for one!.
