When Herjólfur's scheduled journeys to Landeyjahöfn are cancelled, passengers with reservations have to bear a few things in mind. Below are the guidelines for such instances.
• During the winter schedule, journeys that are scheduled at 08:30 and 18:30/18:45 from the Westman Islands are transferred automatically to Þorlákshöfn if the ferry sails to Þorlákshöfn and Landeyjahöfn is closed. Other journeys are not transferred, so passengers have to re-book their journeys at Herjólfur's service points. Herjólfur's telephone system is usually quite buisy when journeys are cancelled, so the email can also be used.
• It is not given that passengers with tickets for cancelled journeys are transferred to the next available journey, since a portion of that journey's capacity may already be booked.
• It is possible that when Herjólfur's journeys are cancelled that passengers are not able to take their vehicles with them on the next possible journey, for the same reason as above.
