5. Airport transfers to Reykjavik. Fly bus
coach transfer time to Reykjavik takes
approximately 50 minutes. Fly Bus coaches
depart from outside the terminal building.
Most of our holidays include a voucher which is
worth 1200 ISK each way. This is not required if
you are picking up a rental car at the airport.

6. Climate in Iceland. Iceland’s weather can
be very changeable and travellers should
expect different conditions at any time of year.
Further guidance can be obtained from our
reservations staff. Many activities booked
locally which are mentioned in this brochure
such as snowmobiling (skidooing), whale
watching, horse riding, northern lights rely on
the correct weather conditions. For this reason
we advise that these types of activities are
booked on the spot in Iceland.

7. Minimum numbers. In the vast majority of
cases minimum numbers is not applicable
since most holidays are booked on an
individual client basis and since all flights are
scheduled there is no requirement for
minimum numbers. Were special packages are
organised and require minimum numbers we
ensure this has been reached 4 weeks prior to
the departure. If this has not been reached we
reserve the right to cancel your holiday, or to
offer an alternative perhaps at a different time
or refund all money paid.

8. Correspondence. If bookings are made
through travel agents all communications
should be directed via your travel agent. For
direct bookings which are the vast majority all
correspondence will be through Iceland
Holidays. Please quote the lead name on the
booking and your invoice number in any

9. Health Matters. At the time of publication
no compulsory vaccinations or other health
precautions were required for British citizens
visiting Iceland or the USA. The department of
health publishes leaflets containing advice to
travellers on health and these are available free
from your doctor, travel agents or by
telephoning free phone 0800 555777.
Passengers suffering from any known or
suspected medical condition or women more
than 28 weeks pregnant must notify us at least
30 days before departure. They must also
produce a medical certificate confirming
fitness to travel. We reserve the right to refuse
or cancel bookings if relevant certificates are
not produced and we will not be liable for any
operator’s refusal to carry any person who has
not notified us of their condition.

10. Special requests. Please tell us about any
special requests such as dietary requirements
or extra assistance that are not covered in this
brochure. We will always do our best to meet
such requests but cannot guarantee to do so
and cannot make them part of our contract

11. Your accommodation. In Iceland single,
twin and double rooms are available in most
hotels. Ordinary single rooms are sometimes
small and poorly located and it is often better
to pay for single occupancy of a standard
double room and we will provide you with this
choice. Most hotels provide triple rooms
although this often involves adding an extra
bed. Some hotels offer family rooms which
sleep 4 people and in some cases there are
more spacious suites. Some touring
guesthouses and hotels offer cabin or chalets
which are more spacious and particularly
suitable for families. Our reservations staff will
advise you of family friendly guesthouses and
hotels. The majority of hotels we offer have an
en suite facility which usually means a shower.
Some green guesthouses may only have shared
bathroom facilities although this is usually
made clear in the description.

12. Meals provided. All guesthouses and
hotels are on a bed and breakfast basis. This is
usually a continental style buffet breakfast.
Not all hotels provide evening meals as the
norm so if you require this please check in
advance. When touring around Iceland if you
require an evening meal it is often necessary to
contact the guesthouse in advance.

13. Your documents. We will usually send out
all the necessary documents in good time prior
to your holiday. These documents include
flight confirmation details (E tickets)
accommodation vouchers and car rental
vouchers. We also provide individual hotel
details, a Reykjavik street map and for fly drives
a good road map of Iceland. Always check and
double check the details on this printed
material in case of changes to the original
flight schedule.

14. Safety Standards. Safety Standards and
regulations are not necessarily the same as
equivalent standards in the UK. The monitoring
enforcement and compliance with local
regulators is carried out by the appropriate
authorities in the country. Iceland Holidays
advise you to take all reasonable precautions
whilst on holiday.

15. Driving and car rental details. Laws,
licensing requirements and age limits vary
throughout the world. Check with travel
agents or relevant embassies before departure.
Specific information about roads and driving in
Iceland is available on request and should be
followed. The rental vehicles provided are
subject to the terms and conditions of the
individual car rental company used. The car
rental prices usually include all the necessary
insurance Inc CDW and unlimited mileage.
Most car rental contracts have an excess
amount which you would be expected to pay
in the event of damage being caused to the
vehicle. This excess amount can be removed or
reduced by paying an additional modest
premium. In addition to the car rental charge
there is an additional fee of approx £15 for
picking up a car at Keflavik Airport. If you drop
off or pick up a vehicle at Akureyri, Egilsstadir
or Hofn there is an additional drop off charge
of approximately £50.
