The European Union has attempted to keep the rights of passengers safe during travel. This means that if something happens while you’re traveling, you might be eligible for compensation. It’s important to know your EU flight cancellation compensation rights before traveling so you can be properly prepared when your plans don’t go as expected. If your flight was canceled and you were made more than three hours late to your final destination, you might be eligible for compensation from the airline. Many passengers aren’t aware of their rights under EU protection and nearly 98% of people eligible for compensation from the airline don’t claim it. Know your rights, claim your due compensation!
