There are never any hidden costs or surprise legal bills as our fee is covered by the compensation payments and you will always keep the majority of your compensation.
What Will I Have To Pay When My Claim Is Successful?
Our services are 100% no win no fee, meaning there’s no financial risk to you, even if your claim is unsuccessful. We only get paid if you do.
Our pricing is displayed as a flat fee, so you can see from the outset how much will be deducted from your compensation to cover our costs, if your claim is successful.
If your case requires us to issue court proceedings on your behalf, there will be an increase in administrative fees to cover some of the extra work involved in doing this. All relevant costs associated with your claim are clearly stated in your T&Cs.
If we can’t recover your compensation, you pay nothing, meaning no financial risk to you whatsoever, even if your case goes to court.

Our no-win no-fee no-risk service means that you will not have to pay a penny in legal costs to us or the other side if we can’t win your claim.

What Is The Cost Of Claiming Flight Compensation Myself?
There are a number of possible costs to consider if you pursue a flight claim yourself against an airline.
- Issue fees
- Hearing fees
- Time spent dealing with the claim
- Legal costs if claim goes to court
- Travel to court if representing yourself
Airlines do have a legitimate defence to avoid paying out on delay claims – the difficulty for people trying to claim themselves is knowing if the airline has a genuine defence in their particular case.
So it might mean that you have to issue court proceedings, as we have to do, and then there would be some upfront costs for you to pay.
Issuing court proceedings against the airline through the Money Claim Online Service (MCOL), requires payment of an issue fee (typically £75) and possibly a hearing fee (around £105).
As well as the financial cost involved in claiming flight compensation yourself, you also need to consider the time that it takes. You will need to write letters, follow legal processes, understand the legalities of EU Regulation 261/2004, possibly prepare court proceedings, and attend court.
If you end up at court you would need to factor in travel to the court and taking time off work to attend the hearing.
We’ve heard that some people have spent around 20 hours in total over the course of several months in order to properly handle your own flight compensation claim.

Are There Any Hidden Costs?
We have made the costs very clear and transparent, so you can be reassured there are no hidden fees at all.
Our legal team is regulated and authorised by the Solicitors Regulation Authority, so this should give you even more confidence about the quality of our service and transparency of our costs.
How Long Will It Take After Winning My Claim To Receive The Money?
We usually allow 42 days from when the airline has agreed to settle the claim until we receive payment from them, but this can vary depending on the airline.
None of the airlines are very quick at paying once they’ve agreed to settle so you’ll need to be patient.
If the airline still does not pay compensation at this stage our legal team will begin enforcement proceedings on your behalf.
How Will I Receive My Compensation?
Our service is set up and designed to be 100% electronic to save time and paper. On this basis we prefer to pay you by bank transfer – as this is also the quickest way for you to receive your money.
Therefore, we request bank details of everyone involved in your claim and pay your compensation directly into each account. You will have an option to be paid by cheque if you prefer.
How Will Others On My Claim Receive Their Compensation?
When the airline has agreed to settle your claim we will request bank details by email to each person involved in the claim, so we can pay them directly.
