Ryanair flight compensation
It all begins with a dream. You dream of spending the perfect vacation at the seaside, laying on a beach chair, and enjoying fancy drinks with cocktail umbrellas. You enter on Ryanair website and book your flight to your holiday destination. But when you reach – on time – at the airport, you find that your flight is delayed or cancelled because of a technical fault at the airplane. What can you do? Claim your Ryanair flight compensation!
Do you know your flight delay rights?
When you buy your ticket for a flight with Ryanair, the airline is responsible for getting you to your dream destination. It’s true that most journeys are problem free. But sometimes issues arise, causing the delay or cancelation of your flight. If your trip is disrupted, you may be entitled to compensation.
According to EU261 law, if your Ryanair flight delays for 3 hours or more on arrivals, you are eligible to claim compensation up to 600 Euros. It applies when traveling with other airlines, as well, when you fly from Europe – even to countries that are outside of the European Union, such as Switzerland and Norway. The EU 261 Rule holds when you depart or arrive at any airport in the EU.
You can check at any point how much amount you can claim from Ryanair by using a flight delay compensation calculator. If you are aware of your rights as an air traveller, all you have to do is consider several factors before filling the compensation form for your Ryanair flight delay.
Claiming flight cancellation compensation from Ryanair
- Your flight with the Irish low-cost airline was delayed for more than 3 hours, overbooked or cancelled? First, we will get in contact with Ryanair and establish the reason for the delay.
- Was it the airline’s fault? Exchange contact information with other passengers, and collect evidence of the delay, if you can – keep the original ticket and proof or expenses or vouchers you might have received from Ryanair, as you will need them when you write the application for Ryanair flight cancellation or delay remuneration on our website.
- The airline doesn’t want to provide basic services and benefits at the airport? You must insist or at least collect evidence of any amount you spent there for food, drink, and accommodation, if your flight was cancelled.
- Was your travel on short distance (up to 1500km), medium distance (up to 3500km) or long distance (longer than 3500km)? You are entitled to €250, €400, or €600 as compensation – depending on the delay circumstances.
It is irrelevant whether your flight ticket had a small price. The total compensation you can receive from Ryanair depends on the distance of your flight, not the amount spent on the ticket to your flight destination. When you choose to fly with Ryanair, and your journey is delayed or cancelled, you must fill a compensation form on our site – regardless it was a domestic flight or an international flight, for business or to your dream holiday destination.
After filling the form for Ryanair flight compensation we will contact them. When the airline confirms that your claim for compensation is valid, they promise the payment. Don’t let a flight delay/cancellation ruin your perfect vacation! If it’s not right, know your rights, and act accordingly!
