Out of all the delays that possibly exist, flight delays just have to be the worst. Not only have you had to drive all the way to the airport, get frisked by security, and been stuck in an enclosed space for three hours surrounded by too many ways to part with your holiday money, but then to add insult to injury you’ve had even more time tacked on. The longer the delay the less precious holiday time you get, so it’s not surprising that we all get pretty riled when it happens.
Unfortunately I don’t have a magic wand to stop the delays from happening in the first place (if I did then I would) but I do know of something that helps ease the pain, which is Compensair.
What Is Compensair?
Compensair, as you can probably guess by the name, are a company who help travellers gain compensation when their flight is delayed. They handle all of the complicated paperwork behind the scenes so you don’t have to, plus they operate on a no win, no fee basis, meaning that you only have to pay them for their service if you get the compensation. This works out at just 25% of your final compensation amount, and of course if the claim falls through then you’re no worse off than when you started.
The service is there for anyone, regardless of citizenship, and they have a handy calculator on their site which can help you work out what you might be entitled to before you apply (between €125 and €600 if eligible). The information on the website makes it simple to understand and you can find a fully comprehensive guide to your rights as a passenger on there as well.
How Do I Know If I’m Eligible?
All claims are subject to approval, however you could be eligible for compensation if:
- Your flight was delayed for more than three hours
- Your flight was cancelled
- Due to a flight delayed for less than three hours you missed a connecting flight, resulting in you landing at your destination more than three hours later than expected
- You were denied boarding because of overbooking on the flight
It’s also worth noting that the flight in question must have been within the past six years, and the delay (if applicable) was not due to extraordinary circumstances such as bad weather.
How Do I Apply?
Applying for compensation is easy – simply href=”https://www.compensair.com/?utm_source=ig_pages.places.plates”rel=”nofollow”>go to the Compensair website and click the “Check your flight now in two minutes” button. Follow the instructions, and voila! All done with no complicated paperwork or unnecessary stress. A lot simpler than the alternative, which involves collating evidence, submitting documents, and a whole lot more waiting around.
Money of course is no replacement for a missed or altered holiday, but it’s comforting to know that, should I be in that situation, there’s a company out there who have got my back. If you’ve experienced flight delays within the last six years then you may well be owed something, so head over to Compensair now to find out more.
