Cancellations and delays:
In the event of irregularity you can choose between two options: Accept a rebooking from helicopter to ship, in order to reach your destination as fast as possible. Or choose to accept the first available departure with Disko Line regardless of the means of transportation.
Please note: In some cases we will automatically rebook you from helicopter to ship or vice versa. If you, for some reason, wish to be rebooked to your originally means of transportation, you must contact us by phone.
When you accept a rebooking, you will neither be refunded any difference in price nor charged for any increased price.
There will be no compensation for loss of earnings.
In the event of irregularity we differentiate between those with hold a proof of residence in Greenland and those who don’t. For that reason it is IMPORTANT that you always carry your proof of residence with you on your travel.
If you do not hold a proof of residence in Greenland, we highly recommend that you take out a travel insurance which covers any travel delay.

Passengers must arrive at ship's side 30 minutes prior to scheduled departure. In case the passenger fails to show up within this time limit and complete the check-in, the ticket is lost and will not be refunded.
