Accommodation for the driver
If the driver is away from home (Reykjavik). Then you need to provide a single room for the driver. Nothing special, it can also be in a cheaper hotel nearby your hotel. Or a separate room in a rented house/apartment.
We prefer if the customer handles all Hotel bookings. And that includes rooms for the driver/guide.

Sometimes, meals (Lunch, Dinner) are provided FREE for the driver/guide when he brings groups to the restaurant. If meals are not provided free by the restaurant, then you are responsible for the drivers meals.
