Our Guarantees for your Trip to Iceland

Online Payment

In order to offer our clients a reliable and widely recognized method of payment, we use the electronic payment services of PAYBOX, a very well trusted online system of payment.

Thanks to the 3D-secure protocol, you will be able to pay your deposits online at your convenience and make your payments online in complete security within the time-frame specified by your contract.

Of course, if this method is not ideal for you, you can always opt to pay via a traditional bank transfer.

Our local agency cannot directly supply you with travel insurance; meanwhile, in order to better meet our clients' needs, we have developed an agreement with the renowned insurance company, ASSURINCO so that you can travel in Iceland without worry. The travel insurance contracts offered by the ASSURINCO comply with our own terms and conditions.
