Value to our customers

Using Ifdelayed gives true value to our customers. Their service is easy to use and helps passengers claim compensation in the event of a delayed or cancelled flight. It also saves time, as it can be difficult to claim compensation on your own to the airline. It’s also valuable for us to have a partner who can guide our clients when it comes to their rights and options in these cases.

I was very conveniently contacted by Ifdelayed after I experienced a cancelled flight. I wasn’t aware that I could get compensation, so I was positively surprised.
It’s surely quicker to handle this through Ifdelayed.com than to figure out how to do the claim yourself.

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.

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

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.

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.
