The amount ranges from 300 to 500 SEK. If the error is due to the organizer or someone contracted by them, correction shall be made without cost to the traveler.

In the case of a possible transfer of the trip, the travelers will pay the additional costs associated with the transfer to the organizer.
Passports and visas
For most travelers, passports and visas are required. The passenger is him- or herself responsible to control with their local authorities whether a passport, or both a passport and visa, are required for the trip. The passenger is also responsible for having the acquired valid documents present at the start of the trip. Depending on the traveler's citizenship, the traveler might need to independently handle the visa application and pay visa fees. Passports must always be valid for at least six months after the return date to be accepted.
If currency exchange rates, flight prices, or similar factors change significantly, The Green Guide reserves the right to increase the price of the trip after the booking and original payment has been made. In this case the travelers will be informed about the increase in price without delay. An additional payment will have to be made by the booker according to the instructions then sent out by the organizer.
If the price increase constitutes 12% or more of the total price of the trip, the traveler has the right to cancel the trip and receive a refund according to the general cancellation rules below. The traveler must inform The Green Guide of the cancellation without delay of being informed of the price increase; otherwise, the traveler will be bound by the new agreement. The Green Guide must inform the traveler about any price increases due to the aforementioned circumstances at least 20 days before the departure date. The price cannot be increased during the last 20 days before the agreed departure date.

If the trip is canceled between 59 and 31 days before the departure date, the cost is 50% of the total price of the trip.
If the trip is canceled later than 30 to 0 days before the departure date, the cost is 100% of the total price of the trip.
Flights and Other Transport
Responsibility for suddenly arising changes or delays in air, train, and bus transport that are beyond The Green Guide's control and that cause problems or inconveniences for the traveler to reach the starting point of the trip or hinder the return after the trip lies with the respective transport companies.
The Green Guide's Obligations
The Green Guide is committed to conducting the trip as described on the website. If there is an insufficient number of participants for a trip, The Green Guide may cancel the trip. An insufficient number of travelers would consist of <150 travelers concerning the Sweden-trip, and <25 travelers for the Norway trip.
Notice of a trip's cancellation due to an insufficient number of registered participants or other reasons must be given no later than 60 days before departure.
Travel itinerary, hotels, program elements, daily schedules, etc. may change up until departure, and even after the trip has started. This could be due to circumstances beyond the organizer's control or deliberate decisions by the organizer, such as a change of hotels. In all cases, the organizer aims to provide a travel program that adequately complements the original program. Such changes typically do not result in a reduction of the trip's price.
The organizer is not responsible for delays or difficulties caused by circumstances beyond our control, such as general labor disputes, war, fire, lightning strikes, terrorist attacks, changes in regulations by authorities, technical problems, or errors in electrical/telecom/data connections, and so on.
In cases where circumstances arise that make it impossible to conduct the trip (force majeure), The Green Guide has the right to make changes to aspects such as routes, planned visits, or accommodation to equivalent alternatives. The above circumstances also grant the organizer the right to cancel the trip less than 30 days before departure, regardless of the trip's duration. If the organizer cancels the trip due to force majeure, the traveler will be refunded.
The traveler must have valid identification documents. The traveler is advised to have comprehensive travel insurance, including cancellation protection. The traveler agrees to adhere to the rules and regulations stipulated by, for example, law, public authorities and The Green Guide's representatives.
The baggage transport included in certain trips is limited to the heavier part of the luggage. Valuables such as cameras, money, jewelry, etc., are not recommended to be left in the baggage transport. The traveler is responsible for transporting and storing their valuables during the trip.
Errors or Deficiencies
