Very satisfied with you!! I am so happy with the compensation!!

George Meskheli

I totally recommend this company

It took about 5 months to solve the issue and get the refund. It would have been better if I were updated about the development of my case more frequently by the company…

I’m happy that I used the services of IFDELAYED

I’m happy that I used the services of IFDELAYED even though I couldn’t receive the full compensation due to “capacity issues in Germany and many other countries in the EU”. Nevertheless my additional expenses like hotel and transfer were paid for as well. I would definitely recommend this company if you have any kind of issues with your flight.

Jonas and his family saved €720

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.

Kai Tapper

They got me my Money back!

It took them around 6 months to do it but it was worth the wait.
Just got a reply that they managed to get me 600£ back.

To know that someone out there was willing to go help the ones who can’t do this themselves for a small fee. It’s very comforting.

Now i know i can rely on someone if there’s delays in the future!
