Yes, it might be a concern but your money should be safe if you use a credit card, (not a debit card).

Furthermore, their currency is so far down the tubes versus the pound that everything should appear cheap to us Brits - even the booze!

So it's probably a better bet than you thought crow.

After what they did to the Icesave customers recently I would never put 1p into the country!.

The UK government should buy the whole country up as they did for the UK Banks as they are nearly bankrupt as a country. However for those Icelandic chiefs who have stripped their country of wealth and put the burden on the population , they will have their own private jets, or have they gone to live in the Cayman Islands?!

Hardly worth bothering...all they have left as assets, are a couple of boxes of Herring & a dozen Bjork albums.

An appropriate (Bjork) lyric - "It's all so quiet......"

But I prefer this Lou Reed lyric "You're gonna reap just what you sow"

What a bunch of dodgy 'Geysers' eh?!

There was a report saying it was probably about 20 people in Iceland banks that caused all the mess. Dont see why you should condem the whole country because of that. I have fancied a trip to Iceland for years but always been very expensive, this is a very good deal and your money will go a lot further now than before. Not much chance of loosing any money if you use a credit card to book.

Hot.
#11
Well you say a pint is affordable, current price is £3.50 a pint, down from over £5. :)

I'd wait another month, I think trips to Iceland could get a *lot* cheaper.

Hell, might even be able to buy the whole country in a car boot sale soon.
#12
What I condemn is Iceland’s government guaranteeing 20,000 euros, then failing to live up to its promise, leaving the UK tax payer to pick up the bill. Also the bank freezing access to UK accounts but continuing to let it’s own people withdraw their monies.

We are discussing a deal on a trip to iceland, not how the icelandic government and banking sector has been bahaving. Its still a nice place to visit.

Great value.

Now given the currency is shot, it is actually affordable to travel there. Its a great place to visit.

What happened to their banks is not the fault of the People of Iceland the whole thing worldwide was in fact triggered in the US.....as a result of poor people not being able to pay thier mortages.

If your ****** off have a go at the bankers in the US and UK.....you just payed £16000 each (taxpayers money) for banks in the uk for thier bailout!!!!!! No point being angry at iceland who does not have the ££ to bail out thier banks.

As for a deal, its hot!

Hotel cabin is a nice enough hotel, the inside rooms with no windows are a bit earie, but it has amazing views from its balcony style areas. Lovely place.

#21
There speaks the voice of desperacy in classifying an entire island worth of women as hot, or perhaps he knows something of geothermal power that we don't?

Anyway - its a pretty good deal, and its rather unfair to mark deals down by the US expecting the entire world to house its poor.

So a great deal to enable you to queue outside a branch of icesave for a couple of days.

The people who chose to invest their savings into an Icelandic bank should have took the possibility of this happening into consideration beforehand, tough luck for them.

I gather it wasn't you then. Believe me it's not funny and higher beings like yourself dont make it feel any better. We did take into consideration beforehand, there was a governmant backed guarantee... what more do you want us to do, I'm hardly able to audit every bank I put money in.

Yeah, those local authorities' executives and accountants in Britain are paid £60-£100k salary each per year and they should have read the small print of the Icesave terms and conditions... buyers beware. All those terms and conditions are spelt out clearly. Have they closed a blind eye to it all and lost hundreds of millions. If the terms and conditons are not lawful they they may have a legal case against some one in Iceland. There is no need to get angry at each other. Let the law of contract, banking law and international law deal with it. If these laws are not adequate or they did not know because they have yet to educate themselves with fianance courses then the local authorities executives and finance managers should have deposited the money in institutions covered by UK law. I can understand the average savers in the street does not necessarily know better but those whose professional it is to safe guard community charges should know better.

Better edit this: The offer of £199 is a great deal , you may as well take advantage of the cheaper prices and cheaper currency. The collapse means that they Icelandic people will have to toil and to pay for the excessives of the finance and business leaders. They borrowed billions of dollars and went on an acquisition spree right across Europe....these companies were overly geared and too much leverage. By you spending money in the country then they have a better chance to recover.

Good to see a comment that is a bit more altruistic towards the ‘normal’ people of Iceland rather than just condemning them all for the actions of a tiny minority. I think the 20 or so bankers/investors in Iceland who caused this will have to emigrate from there anyway because everyone will know who they are in a place that big and will probably run them out of town. Taking advantage of this (and probably loads more in the coming months) cheep deal and trying to help out their FAILED economy at the same time is a win-win deal from what I can see. The people of Iceland will have it much worse than the UK in the coming years.

What started it all was Reganomics, Thatcherism and Rogernomics.. free markets, self help to wealth and stardom.. wholesale privatisation of state controlled industries and let the free market take control. This would work very well for 99.9% of people running or in the so called free markets that is largely self regulating (excluding China, Russia etc. where free market is a strange phenomenon). What was missing from their calculated cunning policies was how to deal with the exceptions and extreme cases where individuals could get so enormously powerful with their ability and power would exceed that of the State. These giants of finance are able to "mobilise" billions and trillions of dollars and they are the Power. I mean you will have to "move" hundred of billions of dollars to allow the head of failed US investment bank Lehman Brothers to take home about $300m in pay and bonuses over the past eight years. Under this one bloke there are thousands of them who took millions of dollars of bonus and this is just Lehman Brothers alone .. and there are thousands of smaller similar firms dishing out bonuses and huge salaries. It is still a mystery as to where the hundred of billions disappeared to as surely these Fat Cats must have paid huge taxes to the governments and they in turn would have spent the tax on the common people. I mean if one earns $300m , does not half of it goes to the government as income tax? So with these Fat Cats there must be Fat Cat tax office as well. Or is it the Thatcherism and Reganomics had missed out completely the notion of needing to tax these hugely powerful fianaciers? I mean even the Icelandic Banks must have paid out huge corporation taxes to the Icelandic government if they were doing so well in the past with massive economic expansion with huge profits.. or have the Iceland government completely failed to cycle the money from the hugely rich to the common people through taxation?

The free markets and the international banking had stripped most of the developing world of its wealth. Much of the third world debt had to be written off http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Third_World_debt so as to make amends. The same free markets and international banking and investment banking turn to the developed countries since 2000 (if not before) and stripped it bare too as it did to the developing countries. That is in a nutshell why the government had to bail ourselves out of trouble now as they had done so to the third world. So, does free market work? Communist did not work and collapsed so capitalism proclaimed as triumphant.... but it has imploded recently as did communism in Russia.. now is the time to scrap them both and come up with something that works better. Strangely China has a bizarre system of communism and capitalism!

Well , this is long text... it goes to illustrate how great leaders think on a high plane by exploiting cream of the academic, industrialists and ideas from the best of the intellectuals but they as leaders have no experience or the intellectual capacity to visualise what would happen in reality especially when these industrialists and financial shakers whose power and wealth exceed most countries on this planet. They had faith that the mega successful people would self regulate, or restraint themselves or constrained by each others as they got more and more money. They thought that after making US$50, maybe , they are less ambitious or greedy for the next US$100m ...etc. Now, how can anyone spend and hoard so much money? The fact is they do, they are the modern kings and queens of world in a democratic world. As in the olden days would you believe self regulation and freedom for everyone would not have produced kings and royal families? For the political leaders it does not matter if it will work, for them faith to excel is the ultimate. So in summary Thatcherism central thrust was to rid enterprise of state control and unions and we have come one full circle in that the state is now back in control with partial nationalisation and the burden falls onto the tax payers again. Is the new "union" now the tax payers? If the Banks do not behave will the common people form flying pickets and protest against the Fat Cats as the unions did against their bosses? How bizarre! It all goes to show that when anything fails the common people picks up the tab, this is the best way or is it? E.g. when private hospial fails , we revert back to the NHS. When private companies fail, the social security picks up the tab...

To the comments around it being ATOL protected and pay with a credit card - I know what you are saying but....

To me the cost of arranging time for myself and the Mrs to have time off work and someone to look after the dog when their is a chance closer to the time the holiday might 'go down the pan' and I might have to wait to get the money back isn't worth it. Its all about judging risk and to me its to high!

Understand the point though its like everything if your willing to gamble theres some amazing deals out there on flights, holidays, shares, houses etc... Although if you can't afford to lose it dont gamble it!

couldn't agree more, its almost a certainty that almost all Icelandic companies will be gone by Christmas, so only go for this is you love paperwork. its a shame, as its somewhere i really wanted to visit.

has anybody tried booking this deal. just doesn't work for me... keeps telling me that my credit limit has reached the maimum. I have tried three different cards and got work colleagues to try and book as well. They are also experiencing the same problem.

Perhaps the card companies have pulled their merchant status 'cos they're worried they'll go belly up.

If that's the case then they WILL go belly up.
