Very good efficient service

Very good efficient service, my boss suggested to use ifdelayed.com. First I thought I will try myself. Failed. Then gave to specialists and res
ult was very good as expected.

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.

Great company to work with

Ifdelayed is a great company to work with. They help our clients when they get delayed at the airport. They have a claim form with user-friendly UI that’s easy to follow when trying to file a claim. Their claim processing times are quick, and they push hard to win every claim.

جوناس و خانواده اش 720 یورو پس انداز کردند

ما خوشحالیم که برنامه سالانه Ifdelayed Premium را خریده ایم. من و خانواده ام به تازگی 2400 یورو برای تأخیر در پرواز از نیویورک دریافت کردیم و ما به لطف Ifldelayed Premium توانستیم 100 فیصد خسارت را برای خود نگه داریم.

Excellent service

Excellent service

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.

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…
