These terms and conditions apply to your booking on board the Vulkana. Please read them
carefully, as you will be legally bound by them.
- Your contract
When you book an experience with Vulkana, the contract between the company and you
will exist as soon as you or your travel agent asks us to confirm your booking. Unless a
separate agreement is made, this is a binding agreement between Vulkana Drift AS
(hereafter also referred to as the company) and guest, (hereafter also referred to as the
customer). Otherwise the regulations laid down in the Act on Package Holidays apply to
those trips covered by the act.

arrangements you have booked and you become responsible to pay for them, in accordance
to these terms and conditions. When you make a booking, you guarantee you have the
authority to accept and do accept on behalf of your party the terms of these booking
conditions and accept responsibility for making all payments to us for all members of the
A confirmation invoice which you should check as soon as you receive it will be sent on
receipt of your deposit. If you wish to change or cancel any arrangements later you may
have to pay an amendment or cancellation charge and additional costs (see heading 5,
which may be as much as the whole of the original price of your arrangements.
Once you have asked us to confirm your booking the total price of the arrangements you
have booked is due and is payable as follows:
2.1. Overnight tours:
a) If you book more than 60 days before your scheduled booking date a non
refundable deposit of 20%. The balance is due 60 days before your scheduled

is payable when you book.

The price of your purchase will be confirmed upon your reservation. The company keeps the
right to correct the price. The main reason for the company to be able to adjust the price
after the booking confirmation, is if there occur any changes in public taxes. If the customer
wants to cancel the tour due to price adjustments this has to happen latest 7 days’ after the
the date of the adjusted invoice. Also, there might occur additional costs if the guests have special requests which must be
solved during the tour, which have not been taken account for in advance. In this case the
Vulkana will never add extra costs without a common agreement with the customer or tour

our utmost to help but it may not always be possible. Any request for changes to be made

recalculated for the new party size.

firstname.lastname@example.org. Cancellation takes effect the day we receive your email. Since we incur

information given or invoices at any time. If changes are made before you have made your
booking, we will advise you before we confirm your arrangements. We reserve the right in
specific circumstances to cancel your travel arrangements (for example if a minimum
number of participants for a particular booking is not reached, we may have to
cancel it). Even after we have confirmed your booking we may have to make alterations but
we will not cancel your travel arrangements less than 8 weeks before your departure except
for reasons of force majeure or failure by you to pay the final balance in full.
Most alterations will be minor and while we will do our best to notify you or your travel
agent of any changes as soon as reasonably possible if there is time before your departure, we will have no other liability to you.
- Complaint procedure
If there is a problem during your booking, you must report it on board immediately or to the
relevant ground handler, or tour operator, so that prompt efforts can be made to resolve the
problem. In the unlikely event that a problem cannot be resolved at the time and you wish
to complain, you must send us full written details within 28 days of your return. Failure to
take either or both of these steps will prejudice our ability to resolve your problem and / or
investigate it fully. In consequence, any right to compensation you may have will be
extinguished or, at the very least, substantially reduced.
Any complaints must be made to the Company in writing no later than 2 months after return
from travel or the date on which the service complained of was performed. The Company
will provide a final reply within 2 months. You must supply full details to enable the Company
to deal with your complaint.
