What does Flightright cost?
You only pay us in case of success. We then receive 20 – 30% of the enforced compensation plus VAT. Should we be unsuccessful, you don’t pay anything. That’s fair, isn’t it? Even our initial assessment of your problem flight is free.
We insist the airlines pay up.
7 out of 10 customers report that the airline doesn’t pay their compensation or doesn’t even reply. Because of that many passengers feel left alone. Our legal experts fight for air passengers’ rights and enforce their claims against all odds. We know the airlines’ excuses, fight our way through the paper-warfare and go to court for your right.
Compensation even 6 years after flight
Your compensation claim is valid for 6 years in the UK. But even if your flight took place more than 6 years ago, you may still be entitled to claim. The 6 year period is calculated at the end of the year. For example, if you had a cancelled flight or a delay of over three hours on 01.01.2013, you could still claim compensation until the end of 2019. You can check your claim quickly and easily using our compensation calculator.
The No. 1 in Europe: We have already enforced over € 300,000,000 for our customers.

Flight delay compensation
When you are finally ready to embark on that long-awaited holiday or are heading home after a city break, you usually trust that the flight you booked will take-off on time. Unfortunately, there are a variety of circumstances which can lead to flight delays, cancellations or missed connections. When these situations arise, passengers have extensive rights as laid down in the EU regulation 261/2004 – compensation after flight disruption is at least some consolation.
Flightright enforces your air passenger rights without stress and with no cost risk
When you claim for compensation after flight disruption, problems often arise as airlines are reluctant to pay voluntarily. Claims are regularly rejected with reference to “extraordinary circumstances”, even though the airline in question was actually responsible. This is where Flightright comes into play: we represent your air passenger rights, claim your right to compensation and, if need be, we’ll take proceedings to court. You will never bear a cost risk. Our expertise enables us to argue more professionally than individual consumers. Using Flightright saves you unnecessary paperwork and stress. Our experienced travel law experts make sure that you get what you are entitled to. You only pay us in case of success – we assume the cost risk.
Your air passenger rights are worth ready cash
In order to successfully claim compensation, in case of a flight delay or cancellation, certain conditions need to be fulfilled: the flight needs to start or land in an EU member country. In the case where the flight lands within the EU, the airline executing the flight must reside within the EU. As such inbound flights from outside may also be claimable. If you, as a passenger, have a valid reservation and you checked in on time, you are generally on the safe side. If an airport or air space is closed and delays occur, you can receive a ticket refund, but not usually compensation. A cancellation due to technical problems, on the other hand, is a different story: the airline has to prove that they are not responsible for this fault. Otherwise compensation of between €125 and €600 is due. Additionally, the airline may have to offer other services such as phone calls or meals for example.
