Claiming compensation for denied boarding

Were you denied boarding? Here’s how you can claim compensation!

Were you denied boarding? That could mean several things: there were more tickets sold than there are seats or something went wrong with your travel documents. Both cases of denied boarding can lead to stressful situations you don’t want to be in right before boarding. But don’t worry, Yource is here to help you to get the care you deserve in case of denied boarding. According to the EU Regulation EC 261/2004 your traveller rights are protected when you were denied on your flight and in several cases of denied boarding you are eligible for receiving compensation up to 600 euros per person. To receive this compensation you need to comply with the following conditions:
