Getting Help on Delayed Flights

We’ve all had to deal with flight delays, cancellations and over bookings when traveling by air.

When they happen, it can completely ruin your day; make you very late for an important gathering or worse yet, miss something altogether.

If you’re lucky, you could end up with a simple meal voucher or a free drink, but that is because the companies that fly you around know that you are most likely clueless about your actual rights.

This most common occurrence caused a number of frequent international travelers to get together and take action by creating a service called AirHelp.

AirHelp is both a website and an app that’s designed to quickly act as your flight advocate when things go wrong.

It takes just three minutes for the system to check if you’re eligible for some form of compensation, so you are more informed before making a decision to accept something from the gate agents.

Getting financially compensated won’t happen immediately, but if the AirHelp service can get you compensation, they'll keep 25% to pay for the leg work the system does on your behalf.

Even if your nightmare flight happened within the last three years and you weren't compensated, you may still have eligible for compensation, especially you were on an international flight.
