I am very, very satisfied with the service! It took only three weeks from claim sent until the compensation was in my account. I really recommend Ifdelayed.com.

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.

Amazing service – Thanks ifdelayed

I used ifdelayed for the first time two weeks ago. I filled in the simple form 2minutes while at the airport being delayed. My plane was 5 hours late and me and my family received 18.000 SEK (1.700 euro) in my account just two weeks later , ifdelayed did all the work. Super simple – great service!!
