Transavia is a Dutch low-cost airline and a part of the Air France–KLM Group. It flies primarily to holiday destinations popular among Dutch travellers, such as Spain, Greece, Italy, and a number of countries in North Africa, including Morocco and Tunisia.
The airline also operates a French subsidiary, Transavia France.
In the UK, the airline flies from Edinburgh to Rotterdam and Paris and from Glasgow to Paris. Transavia France also operates a route between Dublin and Paris.
Was your Transavia flight delayed or cancelled?
You can claim your compensation in just a few minutes!
If your Transavia flight got cancelled or delayed, your air passenger rights are protected under the EU regulation 261/2006, also referred to as the EU261 or the Flight Compensation Regulation. According to this law, if your flight gets disrupted because of the airline’s actions, you are likely eligible for flight compensation and — in the event of flight cancellations — a flight refund as well.
What does EU261 exactly say?
Was your Transavia flight delayed by at least 3 hours? If the delay was the airline’s fault, you can claim up to £520 in Transavia flight compensation.
Was your Transavia flight cancelled? If you did not take any alternative flight offered by the airline, you can claim a full monetary refund. Don’t accept vouchers, as these limit your options in the future.
Was the flight cancellation announced fewer than 14 days prior to the original departure date? Then you might be also entitled to flight compensation of up to £520.
Make the airline accountable and get up to £520 in flight compensation.
With Flight-Delayed.co.uk, it takes only a few minutes to claim.
Was your Transavia flight significantly delayed? Then there is a high chance you are eligible for EU flight compensation of up to £520.
You can claim Transavia flight compensation if:
Your Transavia flight was delayed by 3 hours or more.
The airline is the party at fault for the delay.
(You need to take into consideration the so-called extraordinary circumstances — such as thick fog or a thunderstorm, preventing the flight from taking off. If these occur, you might not be eligible for Transavia compensation.)
For all flights of fewer than 1,500 km, the compensation is £220.
For all flights between 1,500 and 3,500 km, the compensation is £350.
For all flights of over 1,500 kilometres within the EU, the compensation is also £350.
For all flights of over 3,500 kilometres outside of the EU, the compensation is £520 — however, if your flight was delayed by fewer than 4 hours, the total amount might be reduced by 50%.
If your Transavia flight was cancelled, you can request a full monetary refund from the airline. Plus, in certain circumstances, you might also be eligible for cancelled flight compensation of up to £520.
You can claim your Transavia refund if your flight was cancelled and you did not take any alternative flight offered by the airline.
Keep in mind that sometimes you might not be offered an alternative flight at all. In this situation, you can, of course, also claim your Transavia refund.
We advise not to accept a voucher from Transavia.
If you accept a travel voucher, you have to use the same airline in the future.
Airline vouchers usually have strict expiry dates that force you to make your travel plans fast.
If the airline goes bankrupt, you are no longer able to change your voucher for a refund — so you simply lose your money.
Have you already accepted a voucher? We might be able to help you to exchange it for a refund. Simply provide us with basic details about your flight and our experts will see what’s possible in your case.
Generally, you can claim flight compensation if your flight was cancelled fewer than 14 days before the original departure date. If the airline offered you an alternative flight, it also must meet specific criteria for you to be eligible for compensation — we break these down in the table below.
You also have to remember that flight compensation is only awarded if the airline is the party at fault for the delay. If any extraordinary circumstances occurred, such as exceptionally bad weather preventing the plane from taking off, you might not be entitled to compensation.
Yes, you can do so if you meet the cancelled flight compensation criteria (see above) and you do not take any alternative flight offered by the airline.
Yes, as Transavia is an EU airline, you can claim your flight compensation and flight refund whatever the destination is.
However, it’s worth noting that the rules are different for airlines from outside of the EU and the UK.
In most cases, airlines are obliged to pay passengers compensation in the event of a significantly delayed or suddenly cancelled flight. However, there are also the so-called extraordinary circumstances — situations where the flight disruption was not caused by the airline but by a third party or force majeure. In such situations, passengers might not be entitled to compensation.
Some of the most common extraordinary circumstances are:
Bad weather, for example thick fog, heavy rain, or thunderstorms.
A strike, most often specifically within the aviation industry.
However, a strike of the airline's crew is not considered an extraordinary circumstance!
Political circumstances, such as a terrorist attack or general security risk due to political unrest.
Natural disasters, including volcanic eruptions and hurricanes.
A collision between the aircraft and birds or other foreign objects.
An ill or unruly passenger.
Flight delays caused by the airport staff, such as extraordinarily long queues to security checks.
However, you should keep in mind that airlines sometimes use extraordinary circumstances as an excuse to reject even the valid claims. For example, they might say the weather was too bad for the plane to take off, even if other airlines have not reported such issues.

Did the airline deny your compensation or refund claim?
Let our experts look into it again!
Did you experience a flight disruption caused by a strike of Transavia’s crew? Then you are most likely entitled to flight compensation as well.
In the event of their own crew’s strike, airlines often deny compensation claims at first. When claiming, you should then make sure that you have true experts on your side, who can handle the whole legal process for you, including a potential court case against the airline.
At Flight-Delayed.co.uk, we do just that — you just need to spend a few minutes uploading all the necessary documents and we will take care of the rest of the legal process for you. We will fight for your rights until the very end and always be there to answer your questions and keep you posted on the status of your claim.
For your convenience, we operate on a ‘no win, no fee’ basis — so there is no risk for you when claiming.
Was your flight impacted by the Transavia strike?
Claim up to £520 in flight compensation!
Generally, you may have up to 6 years to claim your Transavia flight compensation and refund.
To be more precise, this depends on:
The law in the country you’re flying from
The law in the country you’re flying to
The law in the country where the airline is headquartered
The passenger can choose the most favourable law when claiming.
For example, if you are flying with Transavia France from Glasgow to Paris, you have 5 years to claim, as this is the time limit for making claims in both France and Scotland.
