Can I get compensated for a delayed or cancelled Deutsche Bahn flight?

You can get compensated if:

  • Your flight reservation was confirmed.
  • You arrived at your final destination more than 3 hours late.
  • If you got an alternative flight and arrived at your final destination significantly later than the original flight was planned.
  • The airline informed you about the flight cancellation less than 14 days before departure.
  • You departed from the EU or arrived at an EU airport (when the airline is an EU-based carrier).
  • Your check-in for the flight was on time (usually not less than 45 minutes before the flight).
  • Your flight was less than 3 years ago as many countries have a flight delay application limit that is less than 3 years.
  • The airline is responsible for the delay (the circumstances for the delay were under the airline’s control).

Best service. Best employees. Highly recommended!

My sisters and i flew with Norwegian and they didn’t gave us the delayed flight compensation. Really bad service if you asked me. But thanks to IF Delayed who helped us and got the compensation we deserved.

Jonas och hans familj sparade 7.682 kr

Vi är så glada över att vi köpt Ifdelayed Premium. Min familj fick ut 25.824 kr för en försenad flight från New York i somras och tack vare vårt medlemskap fick vi behålla 100% av ersättningen själva.

We´re happy we bought Ifdelayed Premium annual plan. My family and I received €2400 for a delayed flight from New York recently and we got to keep 100% of the commission thanks to Ifldelayed Premium.

Quick, smooth and very supportive.

Quick, smooth and very supportive. Even though I could fight the airline myself (and have done so in the past) Ifdelayed made it so much easier and totally worth the cost!

Matt

Money in the bank…

Money in the bank about three months later! My only criticism would be the lack of status updates throughout the process, otherwise top notch.

Good service

I used Ifdelayed after my family was stranded on a small airport in South France. They handled everything smoothly and even sued in court. In the end I got all the money I was supposed to get..
