Welcome to our Terms and Conditions page.

1. Bookings

Allocation (bookings) cannot be guaranteed for tours unless reserved or booked in advance. Flybus always has seats available, but we recommend booking in advance. Flybus+ services can be booked up to 2 hours before departure time.

2. Flybus/Flybus+

Scheduled Flybus departures operate from the BSÍ Bus Terminal. Flybus+ service is available from selected hotels/guesthouses/tour bus stops located in central Reykjavík.

ICELANDIA acknowledges that travel bags are designed to protect their contents. Considering normal handling, baggage may show evidence of wear and tear. ICELANDIA does not take responsibility for minor cuts, scratches, and dents, nor for any damage which may occur to items that protrude from travel bags, such as retractable handles, wheels, straps, and luggage carts.

3. Pick-up and drop-off service for ICELANDIA day tours from Reykjavík

ICELANDIA offers both meet on location tours and tours with pick up services from Reykjavík. Pick up locations may differ between tour reservations; it is the customers' responsibility to review and verify pick up information and meeting times. Customers are responsible for their own pick-up and must be at their respective hotel/guesthouse/tour bus stop on time. ICELANDIA reserves the right to change the meeting point of the tour. Missing the pick-up does not entitle you to a refund of the paid services.

Meet-on-location booked customers are responsible for making their own way to the location and arriving in time for their booked tour. Meeting information is provided on vouchers/booking confirmations, and it is the customers' responsibility to review and verify. If customers do not arrive at the correct meeting point at the correct time, resulting in a missed tour, this does not entitle a refund for the paid services.

4. Return times

Please note that indicated return times refer to guided tours only, drop-offs and pick-ups are not included. Additionally, return times can vary due to road and weather conditions.

5. Re-boarding after stops and rest breaks

When the customer leaves the tour bus at sightseeing stops and rest breaks while on a day tour with ICELANDIA, the tour guide will announce the duration of the stop and the scheduled departure time. It is the customer’s responsibility to re-board the bus at the scheduled departure time. If a customer is missing or late for the scheduled departure time, the tour bus will not wait as we will have to keep to the tour schedule. ICELANDIA will not refund the tour or cover any costs incurred due to failure to re-board the tour bus on time. In the event of a failure to re-board the bus on time, the customer will have to make alternative transport arrangements at their own expense.

6. Personal Travel Insurance

Safety is our #1 priority. While our highly trained and experienced guides do their absolute best to ensure that everyone on tour with us has a safe and fun experience, there is still a very low possibility that an accident can occur that may require medical attention. Therefore, we advise that all our clients have insurance that includes rescue.

7. Inclusions

All entrance or admission fees to tourist sites, museums or exhibitions are included, unless otherwise stated in the tour description.

8. Exclusions

Unless specifically listed, meals and refreshments are not included. During full-day excursions, a lunch stop is provided at a local restaurant or eatery.

9. Prices

Tours and services are subject to currency fluctuation and conditions of cooperative contractors that may provide transportation and other services.

All rates quoted or shown in our tariffs are based on current purchasing prices in Iceland. In the event of currency fluctuation, government taxes, or due to any other cost increases that are outside our control, ICELANDIA reserves the right to change prices already quoted or published in our price lists with one month's notice.

No rate changes will be made with less than 8 weeks’ notice before the departure date.

After the invoicing has been issued, prices are guaranteed against any surcharge, unless an increase is due to government laws or currency changes. ICELANDIA will absorb an amount equivalent to 5% of the package price. Amounts that exceed 5% will be charged and clients will be entitled to cancel their booking with a full refund if the surcharge exceeds 10%.

10. Languages

All tour guidance is in English. Selected tours are also guided in German, Scandinavian, and Spanish, which is noted in the tour description.

11. Clothing

Sturdy shoes and warm outdoor wear should be worn when travelling in Iceland during any season. Nature is the main attraction on many of the excursions and a short outdoor walk may be included to fully enjoy the tour. Specialist clothing for outdoor activities may be included or available to rent for a small fee, please refer to the tour description for information.

12. Lost and found

ICELANDIA holds no liability for any items that are lost or damaged during our tours. It is the customers’ responsibility to take care of their belongings and ensure their security. Found items should be reported immediately to the bus driver or an ICELANDIA representative. ICELANDIA will make reasonable efforts to return lost items to their respective owners. Nonetheless, ICELANDIA cannot be held accountable for items that are lost or stolen. It is recommended that valuable items are never left unattended. Customers should remain vigilant and report any suspicious activity.

13. Food & beverages on buses/vehicles

Please restrict food consumption to "snack-type foods" such as candy, chips, cookies, etc. When on board our vehicles. Beverages in closeable or covered containers are permitted on board.

14. Liability

ICELANDIA reserve the right to alter routes, itineraries, or timetables without prior notice, should the necessity arise. All programs can be changed or cancelled at any moment during the trip to assure the safety of the clients and staff. No liability is accepted for losses or expenses due to delays or changes of arrival or departure of flights or other services, injury, sickness, accident, strikes, damage, negligence, weather, war, or other causes outside the control of ICELANDIA. All such losses and expenses are the personal liability of the customer.
