My flight was cancelled, and my policy doesn’t cover it. How can I get compensation?
If your flight is cancelled or is delayed by more than three hours, your airline should compensate you. To find out the airline’s specific procedure for making a claim, check its website or call in.
You have a legal right to compensation if you were flying to or from a European Union (EU) country or with an EU-based airline. Depending on the extent of the disruption you suffered, you could receive up to £532 in compensation.
It’s also worth checking what’s covered by the travel cancellation part of your travel insurance. It could help you cover costs for your hire car, to cancel a connecting flight, or to cover that hotel room you pre-booked.
