With the current world situation taken into account, there are two possible scenarios when you book a trip with us. Either it is free to travel and you can go on your long-awaited trip, or it is not possible to travel (Iceland is closed or the United States Department of State (DOS) advises against travel to Iceland). If this should happen, free rebooking to another travel date applies. There is also a possibility to use the amount paid for a future holiday or receive a refund.
Upon booking you pay 20% of the total amount and the remaining 80% is payable a minimum of 30 days prior to departure.
Our trips are covered by the Government travel guarantee. This means that you receive full compensation if any part of your package fails to materialise – for example if an organiser, airline or hotel is declared bankrupt.
These conditions apply to new bookings from October 5, 2020, and onwards. For private and group travel for 10 people or more, special conditions apply.
