There are two main ways that you can claim flight delay compensation one of these is by doing it yourself which we will be taking a look at in more detail in a later part of this article and the second way is using a company. For this article we will be talking about our experience with using Flight Delay Specialists to claim compensation for our delayed flight. When we were delayed we were flying back from France and due to a problem with the planes engine we ended up having to wait for approximately 6 hours before we could board the plane. If this was at the beginning of our holiday it probably wouldn’t of been that bad but as it was at the end and already holiday blues were settling in and we weren’t exactly in the best mood already so this kinda just added to it. Also remember that when flying it is now part of the law that the airline must inform the customer about claiming compensation against them so if it does happen to you then you’ll need to be forward thinking and remember to claim.
Once we got back to the UK we heard from a friend who had been in a similar situation had a lot of success with claiming compensation for a delayed flight with Flight Delay Specialists so we decided to give them a go, to get thing started all we were required to do was fill out the form on site providing the bare necessities such as where you were flying from, who with, where to, what time, why you were delayed and for how long you were delayed for. After all this has been sent in a member of their dedicated support team will give you a phone call and run through in more detail what they need what we thought was really good was they didnt require us to know all the information as they went off and found out all the supporting evidence about our flight delay so you could literally call up and tell them the minimum without having to do much else. Once all of these details were taken we were then allocated to our account manager who explained to us step by step what would be happening and kept us up to speed with everything that was going on with our case.
From this point onwards we weren’t really required as they did all the leg work for us, sent us a few emails here and there to tell us how our compensation claim was going and then within a short period of time, pretty much only took like 2 months we got a letter in the mail containing our cheque for £1,500 which meant that we got £500 each for a family of 3. Now thats not bad considering they did all the work and we literally sat there and did nothing.
