Know Your Rights

87% of air travelers are unaware of the rights they have when they fly. AirHelp is here to change that. We’ll tell you if you’re entitled to compensation, and we’ll help you get it - no matter where in the world you’re traveling.

If you’re flying from or to a European airport you’re usually protected by some of the strongest air passenger rights anywhere in the world. A regulation known as EC 261 says that airlines must compensate their passengers if they disrupt their journey.

So if your flight is canceled at short notice, delayed by 3 hours or more, or you’re denied boarding through no fault of your own, you could receive up to $700 in compensation.

Find out if your flight qualifies

The USA has clear laws about overbooking passengers on flights. If you’re denied boarding due to your flight being overbooked, you could be owed up to $1,350 in compensation.

Passengers in the US also benefit from clear regulations on tarmac delay and luggage issues, but in many other respects, US air passenger rights are unfortunately lacking.

Brazilian law makes clear that airlines are responsible for looking after their passengers whenever there’s a flight issue. Meaning they are required to provide you with any necessary food, drinks, and accommodation if your flight is delayed, canceled or overbooked.

If you’re not properly cared for, AirHelp can help you reclaim any costs where you’ve been left out of pocket, and ensure you receive fair compensation for unfair treatment.

Start your claim

To date, over 130 nations have signed up to the Montreal Convention. This ensures basic passenger rights for air travelers flying between member nations - effectively most of the world.

The agreement says that passengers can claim money back from the airlines whenever they have been left out of pocket due to flight disruption. That includes delayed and canceled flights, as well as issues with checked-in luggage.
