Was an awesome help. I wasn’t sure what to do after the aircraft had been delayed for 3hours without any explanation. After 2days Airhelp just reached out to me to request my compensation. I was compensated within 2weeks and that is an amazing experience.
Thank You!

Very satisfied with the service. I’ve got my compensation, even though it took quite some time (2 years).

I don’t remember how I started my claim through AirHelp, and if I paid any fees. Probably insurance was added when I booked tickets through my company booking system.
One of my flight was cancelled. Air company provided me with new tickets for free but with more connections, later departure, multiple air companies, and they forgot to request a second piece of luggage (which was book upfront ith original ticket). I had to pay extra luggage fee for each air company used and I lost my last connection.

I completely forgot I submitted a claim through AirHelp mid 2018 when I recently, thee years later, received an email telling me about a compensation payment! Payment went very smooth and is secure, and was definitely worth the fee. Very responsive and helpful communication with the team.

This is the help you get from these!

“We are really sorry that we could not help you with your claim and we did not fulfil your expectations.
We always do all we can to help our passengers to get their compensation from the airline. As we use “no win no fee formula” we are always determined to reach our goals. Our investigations revealed that airport problems affected your flight.
By law, airlines are only required to compensate you for disruptions caused by circumstances within their control.
Airport problems are beyond an airline’s control. They are classified as extraordinary circumstances and cover situations such as:

Air traffic control restrictions
Runway issues
Airspace congestion
Emergency landings

These issues might not always be apparent at the time. Airports operate on strict schedules and even a brief incident earlier in the day can disrupt later flights.

We are sincerely sorry that this is the outcome of your case. We wish you luck with your future travels and hope that in case of any disruptions you will choose to submit a claim with us again.”

None of what they claimed had happened- the flight was delayed due to an error and the airline sent a replacement plane from the destination country – I believe that AirHelp is helping themselves to passengers claim – getting these from the Airlines and then keep it all..

My recommendations- steer clear of AirHelp

The first attempt failed, but AirHelp didn’t give up, so gave it another go a few months later. In the end, we won. Happy customer. Would definitely use the services again.

Having used AirHelp some years back with great satisfaction we got an email from them out of the blue last month saying we could now get compensation for a flight from 3 years back (that we had given up on.) In under a week a compensation of £300 on our account. Money we never expected to see. Very good service – and super easy!
