Frequently asked questions

When is the best time to go to Iceland?

Depending on what you wish to experience while in Iceland will depend on what time of year you choose to go. For example, if you’re hoping to see the northern lights – its best to travel to Iceland from September to March. During this time of year there is up to 19 hours of darkness.

What does the GHIC cover in Iceland?

GHIC cannot be used in Iceland. Nor can it be used in Norway, Liechtenstein, and Switzerland.

Therefore, Travel Insurance is essential when visiting these destinations. Without Travel Insurance, you could face extensive medical bills if you have a medical emergency while on holiday.

Is Iceland a good place for a holiday?

Iceland is a destination that tops many travellers’ wish lists for good reason. You could see the Northern lights (depending on what time of year you go),  go whale watching or visit their world-famous hot springs.  Iceland is an excellent place for a holiday as it offers so many once in a lifetime experiences.
