Go Fjords wishes to make travellers aware of the rights and obligations that apply between Go Fjords and travellers. This is done through these conditions, which travellers should read carefully.
Conditions on travel
1. Travellers from other countries than Norway
Travellers from countries other than Norway should bear in mind that other rules may apply besides those applicable to Norwegian travellers, and must therefore themselves find out which rules apply for the trip concerned. Go Fjords emphasises in particular that travellers must themselves address any relevant conditions such as passport validity, visas, vaccinations and any insurance that is required.
2. Scope of conditions
The conditions apply to excursions booked and paid for via the Internet. Separate conditions apply to persons travelling as part of a group. Conditions for partners/ sales agents are regulated in the agent's agreement with us. Please note that tourist informations and our customer centre do sell tickets until departure. If there are exceptions, such information is given at the actual product page.
If it’s not possible to purchase tickets online via gofjords.com due to technical problems, tickets may be purchased on the bus at ordinary price - if seats available. An additional charge may apply on trips bought on site. Quoted prices at "Book Now" apply to online bookings. We recommend all travellers to buy the ticket well in advance of the travel, to reserve a seat. It also allows Go Fjords to resolve possible technical issues in time. The difference in price between the ordinary/ on site price and the price stated on the web page is not refundable if caused by downtime or other technical problems.
3. The travel document
The travel document you receive when you make the booking serves as your ticket for the excursion and you must carry this with you throughout the excursion for verification purposes. You are responsible for ensuring that you have your travel documents with you and for checking that the ticket corresponds to your booking.
4. Change of price
Go Fjords reserves the right to alter prices and accepts no liability with respect to printing errors in the text, images and links on our website. We reserve the right to make changes as necessary after any catalogues or brochures have been printed, such as changes to prices and terms and conditions, changes to the excursion route as a result of unforeseen circumstances and inaccurate information due to printing errors, etc. Changes resulting from the aforementioned circumstances will be announced via enclosures/offprints and/or other appropriate communication channels.
Any complaints regarding deficiencies in connection with the excursion must be submitted as soon as possible by sending an email to [email protected] . Customers shall lose the right to cite any deficiency if this is not done. Complaints must generally be submitted no more than one month after returning home unless special circumstances render it reasonable to extend the complaint deadline. It is emphasised that any comments made on questionnaire forms that are submitted will not be recorded or interpreted as a written complaint.
6. Ticket refunds
In accordance with our conditions, ticket refunds for individual travellers shall not be paid. The booking is binding after the excursion has been confirmed and paid for. The person making the booking will be invoiced for the price of travel in the case of excursions where there is an option to pay on-board the bus/boat and the traveller does not turn up. We recommend that travellers take out travel insurance with cancellation cover, and that travellers contact their insurance company in the event of cancellation due to illness. The insurance company will be responsible for paying any refund due in cases where this is applicable.
7. Cancellation policy
Go Fjords may cancel a trip in the case of unforeseen circumstances over which we have no control, such as rough weather conditions, natural disasters, industrial disputes, etc. that render it difficult or inadvisable to proceed with the excursion (force majeure). Customers shall not be entitled to any refund in the event of cancellation due to force majeure. In the case that a trip has already startet, but has to be cancelled due to force majeure, we will not provide any refund.
8. Unpredicted price changes
Go Fjords reserves the right to alter prices as a result of new or increased taxes and charges, exchange rate fluctuations or similar circumstances over which Go Fjords has no control or could not have foreseen. Price changes shall not be made later than 20 days prior to departure. Price increases of more than 10% of the agreed purchase price shall entitle a customer to cancel the agreement at no cost to himself.
