How much it costs to use reflights?
Nothing! You do not have to pay anything in advance. In reflights we only charge when we manage to win a compensation. Only in the cases where the airline pays coupons or travel vouchers we'll provide an invoice so you can pay our fee.
If the airline pays you directly, remember that you must let us know and pay our fee immediately according to our terms and conditions, on the contrary we will ask for a 25% + VAT fee.
* A compensation is considered money or the total amount of a coupon or travel voucher.
When do the Claim Process Time begins?
When you receive the email "Claim in Process"; you will receive this email after having your authorization and have validated our information. If time passes and we still don't have a resolution we will send you an email with the new fee reduction. When the airline notify us about the payment in process then time will conclude.
*VAT = 6% Total Compensation
How do I get my compensation?
When the airline authorizes your compensation we wil ask you for your basic bank information to do the transfer. As soon as we receive the full compensation amount we will let you know and transfer the total amount less our fee. You will also receive an email with all the transfer information.

None. We fight for extra money; if we can't succeed in your claim as the airlines have the right to defend and can legally have arguments that exempt it from the payment we won't ask you for a penny.

You have an average of 3 years to claim in most cases. The time is subject to the nationality of the airline.
How long does the process take since I applied for my claim?
Some claims are handled quickly by the airline, others are not. We handle the claim as soon as we receive it but it is the airline's decision to respect the passengers rights in the right time and without escalating the claim, it also depends on how optimized are their internal processes, the demand or other factors, therefore the time it takes the claim varies in role of the airline in question and external factors. We have cases that have taken days and others that have taken months, the average resolution and payment time is 3 months.
How do I check the status of the claim?
You can contact the claims expert directly or send a general email to firstname.lastname@example.org and in the shortest possible time we will give you an answer.
What happens when the airline does not respond?
In those cases we will continue to insist. The airline has a time period limit to respond before we can take the claim with the legal authorities. Some airlines will try to respond to the passenger directly, in that case we ask you to send us any email you have received and leave us the reply process otherwise the resolution can take longer. We'll let you know if the airline has responded or not.
How much money can I receive from compensation?
The compensation starts from € 250 up to € 600, depending on the time of delay and the distance of the affected flight. The airline may have a right to receive a discount of 50% depending on the arrival time to your destination.
How long does it take reflights to respond to my request?
The free flight check is immediate after you submit the form. For any information you request personally we are subject to the burden of claims we receive and that sometimes makes us take a long time to respond, but be sure that we will always respond.
