Terms and conditions for booking and confirming trips
The terms for booking a trip are a legal obligation that is why we recommend reading them carefully. They are the basis for your successful Iceland trip booking.
Kriatravel.com is the online booking site and trading name of JS-Kria Travel ehf.
No contract between the Customer and JS-Kria Travel shall come into existence until JS-Kria Travel receives full payment and issues a confirmation invoice. The Customer making the booking accepts these conditions on behalf of all members of their travel party and is responsible for payment due from the party in entirety.
Booking services with JS-Kria Travel are currently only available to persons who are at least 18 years old. Individuals under the age of 18 must be accompanied by at least one adult.

After the final invoice has been issued, the price of a booking is guaranteed against surcharges unless due to currency fluctuation, government taxes or any other cost increase beyond JS-Kria Travel’s control.
In the rare event that any published prices must be increased due to aforementioned reasons, JS-Kria Travel will notify you at least eight weeks in advance if your booking price is affected. Please note, that if an incorrect price has been posted on our website in error, we reserve the right to cancel, amend or limit the order placed at the incorrect price.
For all cancellations, JS-Kria Travel will make every effort to ensure you the best protection. However, late cancellation can result in compensation claims from hotels and other service providers. All cancellations must be sent to JS-Kria Travel in writing, by fax, post or e-mail.

CHANGES TO BOOKINGS
All requests for changes to a booking must be made in writing from the person who submitted the original booking request. An administration fee of 2500 ISK will be charged to the credit card used for the original booking for each day/night of the itinerary that is modified, in addition to any additional supplier costs incurred by the change(s) requested.
However, the administration fee will be waived if changes are requested within 30 days of the date of booking. Furthermore, for bookings made within 60 days of arrival, changes can be made without incurring an administration fee until the confirmation/travel documents have been issued. Additional supplier costs may still apply depending on the change(s) requested.
Transfers: A booking may be transferred from one party to another, provided that the new party upholds the conditions of the booking. An administration fee of 2500 ISK will be charged for the transfer, and both parties must assume joint liability for this fee and any other costs that may be incurred by changes to the booking.
JS-Kria Travel claims no responsibility for any loss, damage, accident, injury, sickness or schedule change due to weather, strike, natural disaster or any other cause beyond JS-Kria Travel’s control. JS-Kria Travel 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.
JS-Kria Travel 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) or to scheduled travel by cruise, ferry or bus, the passenger is responsible for additional costs incurred as a result of such changes (e.g., additional nights at a hotel, meals, transfers, etc.). 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 unhappy with your tour package, we want to hear about it right away. We recommend calling our office as soon as any incident arises during your holiday. (You will also have access to an emergency helpline while travelling on your JS-Kria Travel tour.) If you are unable to do so at the time, you must notify JS-Kria Travel in writing (firstname.lastname@example.org) within 30 days of your return or else you may jeopardise your right to compensation.
All information on JS-Kria Travel’s website is subject to change. JS-Kria Travel reserves the right to alter/change/correct mistakes that may possibly appear in the website or published price lists.
