When your flight gets cancelled it can totally ruin a trip. It might mean you miss a really important family event or your holiday in the sun is cut short, and it can make you feel helpless when trying to figure out what, if anything, you’re entitled to from the airline.
These days, however, technology is on your side and not only can you find out all about your passenger rights online, but with a few clicks you’re able to see how much compensation you can receive after a cancellation, then submit your case for free. This of course doesn’t negate the fact that you’ve had to wait in the airport and deal with all the frustration that brings, but at least you can be compensated for your troubles.
Your rights at a glance
The first important thing to do when your flight gets cancelled is to figure out what rights you, the passenger, have in this situation. When were you informed of the cancellation? What’s your destination and where are you departing from? When does your alternative flight leave? It sounds a bit confusing, but you can easily read up on where you stand when it comes to flight cancellation rights online with MYFLYRIGHT. You’ll be able to figure out your options and go from there.
Claim checking made simple
Once you have an idea of your rights, it’s super easy to check how much compensation you can receive – on MYFLYRIGHT, all you need to do is enter your flight number and date and they calculate the amount for you in just a couple of minutes. The compensation amounts for flight cancellations are 250 €, 400 € or 600 €, depending on several factors – but you don’t need to worry about those factors as MYFLYRIGHT’s system assesses everything for you.
Submit your case for free
Okay, so now you know you’re entitled to compensation and how much. Next, you have a couple of options – write to the airline yourself or use an online claims portal to help. Plenty of passengers do the former, but there is a risk of having to hire legal help, which can be pricey, not to mention the time and effort spent on chasing the airline for your money. With the latter, if you choose MYFLYRIGHT, they can take on your case from start to finish free of charge and their automated system makes the whole process streamlined and stress free. Thanks to the implementation of new technologies, case-checking is fast and precise – moreover, legal teams can easily access all the relevant flight information pertaining to your specific case. While all this is going on, you can get on with your life and simply wait for your claim to be processed and then receive the compensation you’re entitled to.
Thanks to advances in technology, claiming for flight compensation is no longer a headache, with complicated legalese to unravel or worryingly high legal costs. Nowadays all you need to do is input some information online from the comfort of your own home, or you can even start the claim while onboard the alternative flight and already get the ball rolling!
Flight cancellations happen, but you, the passenger, have the tools at your disposal to fight for your rights with ease.
