When are you entitled to flight compensation in the UK?

 

Compensation for delayed flights, cancelled flights, re-routing and denied boarding is legally arranged by the European Parliament. The problem is that almost nobody knows about it. You can get money back from the airline, in the amounts of EUR 250, EUR 400 or EUR 600, as compensation for your disruption. Only a few percent of passengers claim this money. This is to the satisfaction of the airlines because, on a yearly basis, they should pay around three billion euros . Does this shock you?  Well every year 500 million air passengers (in Europe) suffer from flight delays and cancellations. In total 30 million people are entitled to flight compensation.

 

Are you one of them? Then you have to assert your rights and claim the money from the airline. Although they have to pay you, often they don’t. 95% of all first claims are denied by airlines. Subsequently a process with jurisdictional letters follows. Most passengers will stop and won’t continue to pursue their flight compensation.

 

We inform passengers of their rights when their flights has been disrupted. We help them with claiming their flight compensation and make sure they have all the tools at their disposal to get their money. Want to check if you are entitled to flight compensation? Just fill in your flight details here and in seconds you will know how much money you can get.

 

When am I entitled to compensation for a delayed or cancelled flight in the UK?

 

Just as in any other country in Europe, the United Kingdom must abide by rules established in Regulation EC 261/2004.  This means that you will be entitled to claim compensation if:

 

  • You were departing from any airport located in the UK.
  • You were arriving at any airport in the UK and you were flying with a European airline.

 

However, you will be entitled to said compensation if the reason for your delay cannot be considered an extraordinary circumstance. This is also established in the regulation. When assessing if an extraordinary circumstance has occurred, the event that caused the disruption must be outside of the airline’s sphere of influence.

 

How much money do I get in the UK for a flight's disruption?

 

Just as stated above, the amount is determined by the regulation and therefore the amounts are in euros. The distance of your flight's route will determine how much money you should receive as compensation. Do consider that an extraordinary circumstance will exempt the airline from having to pay compensation to its passengers. The total amounts are as follows:

 

  • EUR 250 for all flights up to 1,500 kilometres
  • EUR 400 for all flight within the European Union for more than 1,500 kilometres
  • EUR 400 for all flights within and outside the European Union between 1,500 and 3,500 kilometres
  • for all other flights you are entitle to EUR 600

 

Here is a handy chart to remember the amounts in GBP. These amounts may vary depending on the day's exchange rate.

Very fast and professional, got my claim just over a month but then again the airline did tell us we can claim and gave us leaflets.

I wasn't very optimistic about using this service, but the from the outset the communication was excellent and the instructions were clear. The claim is all handled via email and the online service portal. The team are very quick to answer any questions you have while the airline is assessing your claim. In my case, I was awarded 225 Euros compensation, better than nothing and so glad I took the time and effort to get this money back! Thank you Flight-Delayed for your fantastic service.

Very good service claiming a compensate after a long delay from airline and we got the out compensate. Thank you very much ...

This company provide a very fast and efficient service with no fuss and they took a fair amount of commission with no extra hidden charges. Extremely pleased with them.

i have had great help with the flight delayed trip thankyou very much to u and team

Very good Service for claming Money from Airline companies if you had a Problem like more than 3hrs delay, cancellations without reason. For my case, Airline rejected my Claim via customer Service but after i used this site it took only 4 weeks from Claim to confirmation for compensation. it's very easy to fill out the form to Claim and they answer/help right away. you should try with this even though Airline already refused to pay you with several reason.

It's taken 12 months to extract compensation from Ryanair, purely down to the pathetic customer service on the part of the Irish Airline. Will never use them again as they use every tactic in the book not to pay out, and even though they have now settled conversation rate 1.40, as opposed to commercial rate of 1,31. Many thanks to Flight-Delayed for their excellent support. Well worth 25% cut to get justice done. Highly recommended.

Just over three hours delay last year to Crete contacted this company, they sorted the claim and with in a few weeks Monet transferred into my account. fantastic service. Thank you

Didn't expect result But cash son it's way to.me. Thank you. Great company

What an excellent service , after trying for almost a year to claim compensation for a 5 hour delay in which we were kept inside the cabin with nothing to eat or drink i contacted this company and within 6 weeks I have recieved full compensation minus their 25% which I am happy to pay as I had given up. thanks again to the staff for all your communication and work to complete this. cannot recommend you enough

Just got our cempensation thanks to the team at flight delay very easy process, kept informed as to how the claim was going

Very good service to use for claiming money from the airline companies due to a long delays or cancellations for no reason or no explanation! I had no idea it is even possible, but I filled their forms and did not need to pay a thing for it. They claimed 800 euros for 2 passengers and all they took was their commission fee from the claimed price for their work which is the way it should be. They managed to get the money within a month or so.

My plane was delayed for over seven hours on a UK flight from Newquay to Manchester. I contacted Flight Delay and they quickly completed my claim without any fuss. I have received £195.62 minus a 25% charge, I actually received £145.07. All this took approx 5 weeks from beginning of claim to having payment into bank. HIGHLY RECOMMEND and thank you flight-delayed

What a nice surprise, cheque for delayed flight dropped through the letterbox. Asked flight delayed to do the work for me and a few emails and a few months later I received the cheque for over £600. Minus their 25% which I do not begrudge as if they hadn't done the work for me I would never have got anything. Also thanks to Martin Lewis for making me aware I could claim. Thanks delayed flights I will certainly recommend you.

Very helpful, I got a lot back. I also hope anybody who ever got flight delayed, don't lose your right! It didn't take me a lot of effort to submit the materials, they can help you.

Great service, very easy process and friendly team to deal with - answered questions quickly and through the online tool I was able to track the progress of our claim. Everything has been handled really well and I would happily recommend the Flight-Delayed team to help you with your claim.

My plane was over three hours late getting back to Manchester due to delays. I contacted Flight Delay and they got me £199 (minus 25% for their fee) for the delay. It took less than an hours work from me to fill out a form and give them my power of attorney. Six weeks later it was all sorted. Highly recommended!

Excellent service and communication with the team. Taken quite some time due to airline dragging their heels. Awaiting payment as case just been cleared. I am due refund of Euros minus Flight Delayed take of 25% which is very reasonable considering the lack of hassle trying to retrieve refund by myself. Many thanks to the team.

Last May we had a 5.5 hour delay at Barcelona Airport. I tried contacting the airline (TAP) with my claim but with no results. I had almost given up when I came across Flight Delayed. I sent all the info and one month later I was informed that they had my compensation (500 eur, less 25%) ready to be transferred to my account. I guess the times depend on each airline, but I was gladly surprise by their effectiveness. Everything is done by email, very easy and comfortable! I am recommending this service to all of my friends.

6 weeks start to finish for claim for a delay from Dubai £480.00 received fantastic work from these guys many thanks
