Tour's Location

Iceland

How widely accepted are credit cards? Is it required for me to enter a PIN?
Credit cards are widely accepted in Iceland. Visa and MasterCard are the best options because they are accepted by all Icelandic establishments.
While most businesses do not require you to use a PIN-protected card, there may be a few exceptions, such as at some gas stations. Using a debit card to pay for a full tank of gas at the pump may automatically place a significant amount of money (approximately $200) on hold in your bank account, which is released after a few days, as it is in many other regions around the United States. Some gas stations may also need you to go inside and purchase a pre-paid gas card, however this is normally possible with a credit card.
Is it normal to pay in Iceland?
While service costs are normally included in your bill in Iceland, you may still tip your waiter or guide—10% is usually plenty. The reality is that Icelanders are well-paid, and tipping has never been a significant part of their society.
What kind of power adaptor should I bring?
Iceland operates on Northern European voltage (220 volts) with Europlug outlets with two circular prongs. Your adapter should be of type "F" or "C," which are both identified as Northern European. Before you pack your belongings, make sure to check the voltage labels on your appliances to see whether you'll also need a converter.
It's worth noting that most hotels in Iceland include hairdryers in their rooms, so you can leave yours at home. If you forget to bring your converter or adapter, you may buy one at Keflavik Airport and many hotels.
What type of money is used?
The króna (Icelandic currency) (ISK). As of this writing in early 2018, 100 ISK is worth around $1 USD - you should verify current exchange rates.
I'm not fluent in Icelandic. Can I travel on my own?
The majority of adults in Iceland speak English fluently. In reality, it is exceedingly unusual to come across someone who does not speak English, particularly in the service business.
