Ryanair flight delayed, cancelled or overbooked? Claim compensation!

 

While Ryanair generally tends to be on time, just like any other airline it does happen often that a flight is delayed, cancelled or overbooked. According to Regulation EC 261/2004, an airline has to provide passengers with compensation if their flight is delayed for more than three hours, sporadically cancelled or overbooked. Depending on the exact circumstances, the compensation can range from £220.00 up to £528.00 per passenger. However, claiming this can at times be difficult as carriers try to avoid paying the compensation out. Here are a few little tips to keep in mind when filing a claim.

 

What do I need to claim compensation from Ryanair for my flight’s cancellation, delay or overbooking?

 

When you want to claim compensation for a flight’s delay or cancellation you will need to provide evidence that you actually held a valid booking for the disrupted flight. So, our first suggestions is to always keep a copy of your travel documents:

 

  • Booking confirmation
  • E-tickets
  • Boarding Passes
  • Passport or ID utilised to travel

 

What other information do I need to claim compensation for a Ryanair flight?

 

If your flight has been delayed, cancelled or overbooked you should always make sure to register or write down the following information:

 

  • Flight numbers
  • Flight dates
  • Airports of departures and arrivals
  • Scheduled departures and arrivals
  • Length of the delay (actual departure times and arrivals)

 

Something else that may be very useful when claiming compensation is to know the reason for the delay. Therefore, you should always ask Ryanair’s staff for the reason of your disruption. Especially in the scenario of a denied boarding incident.

 

Network and punctuality

 

Ryanair’s route network, consisting of 398 aeroplanes, services 208 destinations in 34 different countries. If those numbers aren’t impressive enough, last year Ryanair transported more than 100 million passengers, making it the second-largest European carrier by scheduled passengers. The company generally tends to be punctual, with an arrival rate per hour of around 85%.

 

If you are still not sure if you’re entitled to compensation for your flight’s delay, cancellation or overbooking, you can always use our claim calculator and we will let you know, almost instantly, if we believe that you should be compensated. Just fill in your flight details and we will give you an answer. This quick check is free of charge and you can decide to submit a claim with us afterwards.

 

 
 

 

Ryanair cancelled, delayed or overbooked my flight. When am I entitled to compensation?

 

You will be entitled to compensation if the airline is unable to prove that the root cause of your flight’s delay was an extraordinary circumstance. This means that the issue occurred due to a circumstance outside of the airline’s sphere of influence and responsibility. Terrible weather conditions, like a hurricane or snowstorm, are the perfect example.

 

However, airlines, including Ryanair, very often overuse the argument of extraordinary circumstances. We are here to make sure that they don’t get away with it. With years of experience and the right tools and technology, we will make sure that you receive the compensation that you are entitled to. We will corroborate every argument that the airlines may use to avoid paying the compensation and we will even take them to court if necessary.

 

How much money can I get as compensation for a Ryanair delayed, cancelled or overbooked flight?

 

As determined by Regulation EC 261/2004, the amounts are determined by the distanced covered in your booking. This is calculated based on the distance between your airports of departure and arrival (final destination):

 

  • EUR 250 for all flights up to 1,500 kilometres.
  • EUR 400 for all flights 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 entitled to EUR 600.

Claim your compensation for a Ryanair flight even if your initial claim has been rejected.

 

Filing a claim against Ryanair on your own requires knowing your rights, being sure that the flight is eligible and back and forth communication with the airline.
