nordicvisitor.com is the online booking site and trading name of Nordic Visitor ehf. Our registered head office is Bríetartún 13, 105 Reykjavík, Iceland. These booking conditions govern all bookings with nordicvisitor.com, whether they go through our office in Iceland, Norway or Sweden.
Any booking made or order placed by you, whether through the company’s website or otherwise, shall be deemed as an offer by you to purchase the relevant package or other travel arrangement subject to these booking conditions. No contract between you and Nordic Visitor shall come into existence until Nordic Visitor accepts full payment and issues a confirmation invoice. The person who makes the booking accepts these conditions on behalf of all members of the party and is responsible for all payment due from the party.
Booking services with Nordic Visitor are currently only available to persons who are at least 18 years old. By submitting a booking, you warrant and confirm to us that you comply with these arrangements.
Terms of payment
To pay for services booked directly at nordicvisitor.com, we accept all major credit cards and payments by electronic bank transfer. The total price of your day tour(s) must be paid in full at the time of booking with Nordic Visitor.
In the case of delayed payment, Nordic Visitor reserves the right to treat this as a cancellation and to withdraw its confirmation of the services.
In the event that Nordic Visitor is unable to obtain confirmation from the supplier, an alternative will be offered. If you do not accept the alternative, or Nordic Visitor is not able to offer an alternative, no charge will be made. You will be notified of the relevant charges prior to issue of a confirmation invoice. If your travel documents are being paid for with a third-party credit card, we will require written authorisation to be provided by the cardholder via fax or letter.
American Express and Diners charges Nordic Visitor very high handling fees so we regretfully have to pass part of this fee (3% of the total invoice) on to our clients.
If you wish to make an electronic bank transfer and need details of our bank account, please contact one of our travel consultants.
Validity of Prices
All rates quoted or shown in our tariffs are based on current prices and are subject to change without notice in the event of currency fluctuation, government taxes, or any such cost increase that is beyond Nordic Visitor’s control. Nordic Visitor reserves the right to notify you of any increase to prices already published in our pricelists, brochures or website. Any eventual changes in rates will not be made without at least eight weeks’ notice.
After the final invoice has been issued, the price is guaranteed against any surcharge, unless an increase is due to government laws or currency changes. Nordic Visitor will absorb an amount equivalent to 5% of the package price. Amounts exceeding 5% will be charged but should the surcharge exceed 10%, you will be entitled to cancel your booking with a full refund.
All cancellations must be made by letter, fax or e-mail. In conformity with business practices within the Nordic travel industry, the Travel Agent is obliged to charge cancellation fees to passenger(s) as follows:
Notice of Cancellation – Individual Customer
More than two weeks prior to arrival: 20%
Less than two weeks prior to arrival: 50%
Less than 72 hours prior to arrival: 100%
Notice of Cancellation – Groups (10 or More)
More than four weeks prior to arrival: 20%
Less than four weeks prior to arrival: 50%
Less than 72 hours prior to arrival: 100%
Some of our holiday packages have stricter cancellation rules, if so they will be stated under detailed information on the product site. This normally applies to travel arrangements that include international or domestic flights, train travel or cruises. Nordic Visitor cannot refund any of those services booked through us.
Please note that cancellation by passenger(s) within a group may either result in a price increase for the whole group or a cancellation fee being charged to the passenger(s) who has cancelled.
We strongly recommend that all our clients take out comprehensive travel insurance to avoid dispute in case of cancellation.
Invoice and voucher delivery
Invoice(s) and voucher(s) will be emailed as PDF attachments to customers, and hard copies can also be collected in person from the Nordic Visitor office. The credit card used for purchase must be presented at the time of collection.
Nordic Visitor disclaims responsibility for any loss, damage, accident, injury, sickness or schedule change due to weather, strike or any other cause beyond Nordic Visitor’s control. Nordic Visitor acts in good faith, and cannot be held responsible for any agent, hotel, coach operator, airline, guide, restaurant or any other person’s or company’s acts, defaults or delays.
Nordic Visitor reserves the right to alter routes, itineraries or departure times, without prior notice, should the necessity arise. In the case of any changes to flights (domestic and international), the passenger is responsible for any additional costs incurred as a result of such changes (i.e. additional hotel nights, meals, transfers, etc.), at the time provided. We therefore advise all customers to have comprehensive travel insurance to meet all contingencies.
Our goal is to provide excellent customer service and in order to do so we maintain strict quality monitoring. If, for any reason, you are dissatisfied with your holiday package, we want to hear about it. We recommend you contact us as soon as any incident arises. If you are unable to do so at the time, you must advise Nordic Visitor in writing within 30 days of your return. If you fail to do so, this may jeopardise your right to compensation.
All information in the website is subject to change. Nordic Visitor reserves the right to alter/change/correct mistakes that may possibly appear in the website or published price lists.
