Delayed Traveling In or Out of Europe? You may be owed $$$ in compensation

An EU law mandates that if you’re flying in or out of Europe on a European airline, you may be entitled to up to €600 ($650) in compensation to make up for your loss of time. And, no, you don’t need to be an EU citizen to claim. To figure out whether you’re entitled to a claim and how much you might be owed, you can use Bott & Co Solicitors Flight Delay Compensation Calculator, which lets you fill out a short form for an instant owed-compensation quote, cross-checking data from a variety of sources. There’s also AirHelp, which assists you in seeking your compensation, and keeps 25% of your reimbursement if the claim is successful. (While that may seem like a lot, it’s also a no loss deal as if you don’t collect, neither do they.) And don’t forget credit cards often  offer the best compensation benefits. For instance, a Chase Sapphire Preferred card provides up to $500 per person (including you and immediate family members) if the delay or cancellation leads to an overnight stay or 12+ hour wait.
