How Much Can You Claim?

Thanks to our compensation calculator, you can find out how much your flight delay claim is worth in a matter of seconds.

Compensation Entitlements

Amounts as set by EU Regulation 261/2004

Flight distance Delay on arrival Compensation
Up to 1,500km 3 hours or more £226† / €250
1,500km - 3,500km 3 hours or more £361† / €400
Over 3,500km‡ 3 to 4 hours £271† / €300
Over 3,500km‡ 4 hours or more £540† / €600

‡ For distances of greater than 3,500km, for the higher amount of compensation the journey will need to have departed from an EU (European) airport and be delayed on arrival in a Non-EU airport (Such as Manchester to Diagoras.) The airline is eligible to apply a 50% flat reduction on compensation awarded if the delay was between 3 and 4 hours.

† Your claim will be settled at the Euro equivalent on the exchange rate at the time of the delay, or on the date your claim is settled (This will depend on the airline).

If your flight was delayed by more than 3 hours you are entitled by EU law to claim up to £540* from the airline responsible. The amount you receive is determined by the reason of the delay and the distance the flight travelled, irrespective of your ticket cost.

Clare 5 Stars

Excellent service

Hassle free service. We were delayed by 3.5 hours, had a refund of £122 each once fees were deducted. Filled in one form each and within a couple of months were paid out.

Dave Hunter 5 Stars

Succeeded where I failed

After a 9 hour delay with Thomson airways I filled in an online claim form which was eventually turned down by the airline as it was down to a lightning strike.Contacted flight delays and they got my compensation for me.
