For your convenience, you can purchase roundtrip transoceanic air travel directly from Viking in conjunction with your river cruise or cruisetour. Viking’s air packages are a great value because they include your transfers between airport and ship or hotel. And when you reserve your air with Viking and purchase Viking’s all-inclusive travel protection coverage, your air travel is covered by the policy as part of your Viking itinerary. Select from more than 165 different gateways (additional gateways available); once a reservation has been made, we will confirm your flight schedules 75 days before departure.
Transfers are included with roundtrip airfare purchase (assuming your flights coincide with ship/hotel check-in/check-out days). Itinerary details will be provided approximately 3 weeks before your departure in your final document package.
If air is not purchased from Viking River Cruises, transfers between the airport and ship/hotel may be purchased separately at an additional cost per person, per direction, and are available to guests whose flights arrive or depart on embarkation/ disembarkation day only. Embarkation (ship) check-in is generally at 3:00 p.m.; earlier arrivals may relax in the lounge or leave luggage aboard while exploring the port city. Check-in time at most hotels is often in the early afternoon and if you arrive earlier the hotel may allow you to check in if your room is ready or will store your luggage so you can explore on your own. On departure day, guest disembarkation (ship) is generally at 10:00 a.m. and hotel check-out is generally at 12:00 p.m.
If you made your own flight arrangements and would like to book/purchase transfers through Viking, you can request assistance by phone or or click on the link below. Transfers may be purchased up to 30 days before departure.
