A challenging environment doesn't stop assistance in Iceland

Iceland may be one of the most sparsely populated countries in the world, but it still attracts visitors every year to experience its many natural wonders.

Glaciers, geysers, and volcanoes, to name just a few. Then there is the midnight summer sun, and the chance to witness the northern lights in winter, that make Iceland a unique place to visit all year round.

A breathtaking but rugged landscape, with occasional treacherous weather, means Iceland presents some limitations when it comes to travelling. And without a railway system, people rely on cars to get about. Gravel, steep and often icy roads, means drivers, especially those unfamiliar with them, need to take extra care.

Even with extra caution, a car breaking down in an unfamiliar or remote location can be dauting. So it’s comforting to know that vehicle assistance is available throughout Iceland.

While it may take longer to reach someone in a more remote location, Travel Support's partners provide roadside assistance, towing and taxis anywhere in Iceland.

If medical assistance is required, we can arrange prompt medical appointments in the more populated areas of Reykjavik and Akureyri, any day of the week, including weekends. And through our reliable network of providers, we also handle medical transport, ambulances and evacuations anywhere in Iceland.

What’s more, the Travel Support Operations Centre is open every hour and every day of the year. Our 24/7 multi-lingual team are on hand, no matter where or what assistance is required in Iceland. The team also handle all logistical and administrative duties to ensure a case closed, this includes referrals, invoice checks and payment follow-ups.
