Icelandic Guides ehf
Payments for Day Tours are collected while booking. Passengers are obliged to present their voucher (Confirmation ticket), which states that the tour has been paid in full, to the driver-guide.
Cancellations or change of reservations by customers
Tours which are prepaid online have a 10 % cancellation fee (that means 90 % refund) when cancelled more than 24 hours prior to the departure. When a cancellation is received less than 24 hours prior to the departure full price of the tour will be charged and there is no refund. (This cancellation policy may apply also when booked through a third party.) When change of reservation is requested more than 24 hour prior to the departure, no fee is applied. Change of reservation less than 24 hours prior to the departure is not possible. All cancellations must be made in writing (e-mail for instance), in conformity with business practices within the Icelandic travel industry.
When a passenger is not present on the submitted pickup place at the beginning of the pickup time, the driver-guide is obliged to continue the pickup of other passengers and is allowed to start the tour without the missing passenger (in order not to delay the tour for the rest of the passengers). This is considered as "No Show" and no refund is provided.

When a tour is a subject of a "pay as you go" payment, no refund is eligible to be demanded as no payment was done prior to the tour.
