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.
Was your Transavia flight delayed? You might be eligible for compensation if your flight was delayed for 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. Additionally, if your flight was cancelled fewer than 14 days before departure, you can be eligible for Transavia flight compensation.
Airlines are required by law to offer passengers with specific assistance, or the "right to care," regardless of the reason for the flight delay. Vouchers can be used for lodging, dining, travel, and communication outlets. The airline service desk at the airport is where you can go to pick up the vouchers. The airline is bound by law to repay your costs (as long as they are reasonable) therefore if the service desk employees won't give you the vouchers, buy what you need nevertheless.
You are not entitled to flight compensation if your flight was cancelled or delayed due to an "extraordinary circumstance." For passengers to be eligible for compensation, the airline must be the only party at fault for the flight's disruption.
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.
|Type of flight||Example||Compensation|
|Flying with a British carrier||Tokyo to London with British Airways||Yes|
|Flying with a EU carrier||Amsterdam to London with KLM||Yes|
|Flying with a non-UK/non-EU carrier from the UK||London to Tokyo with Japan Airlines||Yes|
|Flying with a non-UK/non-EU carrier to the UK||Tokyo to London with Japan Airlines||No|
Was your Transavia flight significantly delayed? Then there is a high chance you are eligible for flight delay 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.)
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.
If the flight cancellation was announced fewer than 14 days prior to the original departure date, then you might be also entitled to flight compensation of up to £520.
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.
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.
|Cancellation notice||Alternative flight||Compensation|
|Fewer than 7 days in advance||Departs 1h+ earlier or arrived 2h+ later||Yes|
|7-14 days in advance||Departs 2h+ earlier or arrived 4h+ later||Yes|
|Fewer than 14 days in advance||No alternative flight offered||Yes + refund|
You might not be eligible for flight compensation under British/European air passenger rights legislation if you choose to cancel your Transavia flight. You can visit Transavia's website or get in touch with their customer service department to find out more about their compensation and refund procedures.
According to UK/EU air passenger rights legislation, you may be entitled to compensation and/or a ticket refund if you made your bookings for both flights at the same time and the delay or cancellation meets the criteria.
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.
Check the status of your flight before leaving for the airport to be ready for any last-minute adjustments to your schedule. Visit the website of the airline, the airport, or a flight tracker to keep an eye on your Transavia flight.
How much compensation can I get for a delayed Transavia flight?
The amount of compensation is dependent on the flight’s distance.
|Distance of your flight||Compensation|
|Flights shorter than 1,500 km||Get £220 per passenger|
|Flight between 1,500 and 3,500 km||Get £350 per passenger|
|Flights of over 1,500 kilometres within the EU||Get £350 per passenger|
|Flights of over 3,500 kilometres outside of the EU||Get £520 per passenger|
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 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 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.
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.
Passengers who claim with Flight-Delayed.co.uk often find money on their account within a few weeks or months.
Be aware, however, that sometimes the wait time might get longer, especially in situations where the airline is unresponsive and/or there is a court case.
But with Flight-Delayed.co.uk, you don’t have to stay alert all the time after submitting your claim. We make the claiming process easy — you just have to find a few minutes to provide us with basic details regarding your flight and from there, we take care of everything else.
