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!!
