Compensation for flight delay
Fundamentally, if your flight is delayed by 3 hours or longer, you have a right to compensation amounting to 250, 400 or 600 euro: up to 1500 km, 250 euro; from 1500 km to 3500 km, 400 euro; above 3500 km, 600 euro. Legal regulations are somewhat complicated, especially with respect to cancelations and flights with intermediate stops. Hence, we recommend using our EuroFlyRefund compensation calculator to see how much you are entitled to.
It is important that the flight in question was no longer than 3 years ago, and that the airline was responsible for the delay, cancelation or denial of boarding. If you are in any doubt, enter your flight details on EuroFlyRefund and have us check your situation for free.
Tip: Often, vouchers you are offered for meals and drinks are not a substitute for compensation payments. Never forego your compensation rights in exchange for vouchers of much smaller value.
In recent years, airlines have become very inventive when it comes to wiggling out of customer claims. We founded EuroFlyRefund in order to help airline passengers assert their claims quickly and, above all, with zero risk of incurring legal costs. We collect your compensation from the airlines because we know their tricks and evasions, and above all the applicable law to the tiniest detail, and our lawyers have already brought suit successfully against airlines on many occasions. Tip: When it comes to business travel, as a rule it is the employee who has a right to compensation and not the employer who paid for the flight. Furthermore, such compensation is tax free in many countries (to be absolutely certain, please contact your tax consultant)!
