There are instances wherein you have booked an air flight from Europe going to a certain place, but for some reason, your flight got delayed. Under the EU Regulation 261/2004, you are entitled to compensation if your flight was cancelled, overbooked or delayed.
The EU Flight Compensation values range from €125 – €600 and are applicable on every affected flight. If you have multiple flights booked, then you may get thousands of compensations for the trouble. To know more about EU flight compensation, you can request a call back, and there will be a claims handler that will contact you with no obligation and costs
If you have travelled within Europe then there are many ways in which you could be eligible to claim EU Flight Compensation. Below are some general specifics to consider:
- If your flight was booked from or arriving into a European country then you are eligible for EU Flight Compensation.
- If your flight was due to depart from a European country and delayed then you could be eligible to EU Flight Compensation.
If you’re flight was delayed for 2 hours or more, then the airline should be able to give you help for the delay. EU flight delay compensation for this kind of delay would usually be:
- Access to emails and phones
- Foods and drinks
- If you’re flight was delayed overnight, then you’re entitled to get hotel accommodation plus the expense of your travel from the airport to the hotel
If you’re flight was delayed for 3 hours or more but was caused by a technical problem from the airline or they didn’t get enough booking then you’re entitled to EU Flight CompensationEU.
If the flight was delayed because of a strike or a bad weather, then you won’t get any compensation. The amount of compensation you’ll get will depend on the length of the delay and the distance of the flight. It would usually range from €125 – €600.
When the airport doesn’t offer you any help, then you can keep your receipts for all your expenses and try to claim it afterwards. Make sure that all your expenses are reasonable so that you can get your money back.
If the flight was delayed for 5 hours or more, then you have the choice to still take the flight or not. If you don’t take the flight, then the airline should give you an EU delayed flight compensation of:
- A full refund of the flight
- full refund for all your missed onward or return flights
- A flight back to the airport you’ve originally departed from
- Foods and drinks
- Access to emails and phone calls
- Accommodation of hotel with your journey
When you do take the flight and the fault was at the airline, then you’re entitled to claim up to €600 of EU compensation for flight delays. But if the delay was caused by a strike or bad weather, then you won’t get any compensation.
