Did you know that if you have experienced flight disruption as a result of a late fight, a cancelled flight or overbooking, then you may be eligible for compensation? There is legislation in place across the world that protects air passengers from flight disruption and it ensures that airlines compensate passengers who have experienced disruption and poor service. In the EU, the regulation 261/2004 offers comprehensive protection for passengers flying from European airports, and in certain cases, from other global airports, into Europe.
85% of air passengers don't realise that they are due late flight compensation if they have experienced flight disruption. This compensation payment can be up to £520 in value, to cover those expenses incurred from alternative travel and accommodation arrangements. Even better, there is a three year period in which you can submit a claim - and sometimes even longer.
Don't be like the 55% of passengers who do know that they can claim but don't because they are worried about the process!

How do you know when you should claim compensation for a delayed or cancelled flight? Though the law can be complicated, we're here to break it down for you:
Delayed flights: you may be able to claim compensation if your flight arrived 3 hours or more late.
Cancelled flights: you may be eligible for compensation if your flight was cancelled less than 14 days before it was due to depart.
Overbookings: you are owed compensation any time you are denied boarding through no fault of your own — so long as you didn't voluntarily give up your seat.
We should note that if extraordinary circumstances were involved, arirlines are under no obligation to pay compensation. Examples of extraordinary circumstances include bad weather, travel restrictions, and air traffic control strikes. Though these situations cause delays and cancellations, the airline isn't at fault, so can't be expected to offer compensation.
Remember these are European flight regulations and so only apply to flights departing from an EU airport, or flights landing in the EU with a European airline. The table below makes it clear which flights are covered:
|All flights under 1,500 km||Up to £220 per person|
|Internal EU flights over 1,500 km||Up to £350 per person|
|Non-internal EU flights between 1,500 - 3,500 km||Up to £350 per person|
|Non-internal EU flights over 3,500 km||Up to £520 per person|
Table shows values in € as specified in EC 261
In some circumstances the compensation amount may differ from the standard amounts shown above. The easiest way to find out what you’re owed is to use our Compensation Check.
