Can I claim compensation “for cancelled flight” if airlines refunded me in the form of gift coupons and discount for future flights?

Last updated on November 6, 2018

Yes, you can claim compensation for the cancelled flight. Despite the fact that airlines give their passengers compensation in form of gift coupons or discount, passengers have the right to claim compensation which belongs to them under Regulation (EC) No. 261/2004. In fact, airlines usually give lower valued compensation in forms of gifts than the law defines. However, your compensation may be reduced in amount of those gifts value. The best way to claim is to choose the airline claim company from our Best Companies list.
