Don’t Pay Third Parties to Manage Your Flight Claims

EU Claims websites

Claims websites. There are hundreds, if not thousands, of them all over the internet, marketed as experts in flight delay compensation and boasting the ability to help you get the compensation which you deserve. But there’s one thing these websites don’t mention: It’s often just as easy to make the claim by yourself.

And if you do decide to make the claim by yourself you’ll get to keep 100% of your compensation. EU claims websites for delayed and cancelled flights tend to charge around 25-30% commission, which means, for example, if your claim was for €250 you’d be losing between €62 and €75 of your claim money.

Although it may be true that some claims can become more complicated and may warrant third party involvement if they go to court, most flight disruption cases can be settled quickly and easily between the air carrier at fault and the passenger themselves.

Furthermore some airlines, such as Ryanair, have attempted to disallow passengers from using third parties in minor claims in order to prevent these ‘passenger rights portals’ from making a profit out of their passengers.

Why Is Get Paid When Delayed Different?

Get Paid When Delayed is totally free to use. We never charge a fee and never take commission. Get Paid When Delayed provides passengers with the tools to take their rights into their own hands.

By clicking ‘Start Your Claim’ and filling in the simple questionnaire on the Get Paid When Delayed site, passengers can work out exactly how much money they are owed and generate a complete personalised claims letter to send to the air carrier.

As EU airlines are often willing to take responsibility and liability for flight disruptions, many already have their own claims sections in their websites, where customers can submit their complaints or claims for delayed and cancelled flights. But sometimes it can be difficult to find airline contact details or navigate their website to find where to submit claims, that’s why Get Paid When Delayed provides links to these sites as well as a number of ways to contact airlines.

At Get Paid When Delayed not only are we committed to your passenger rights, but we also believe you should have the right to keep all of the money you are owed.
