Norwegian Travel Guarantee Fund

Pursuant to the Package Tours Act, all organizers of package travels must provide security covering their obligation to refund monies paid and for the repatriation of the traveler in the event of the organizor`s  insolvency.

The security is normally given in the form of a bank guarantee, but the Fund may accept other adequate security.

According to the Norwegian Package Act a guarantee is required for two categories of travel arrangements:

1.    "package travels"
2.    "linked travels"

The Fund will cover all valid claims from customers if the security provided proves insufficient to cover the claims.
