Travelling is part and parcel of daily live and nowadays, more people than ever are travelling further distances, whether it is for work or pleasure.


Going on a business trip or a holiday can entail lots of journeys on planes and roads and although both modes of transport are far safer than they were in the past, there are still unforeseen things that can happen to cause disruption and even injury.

Even in these circumstances, there can be some recompense. If something goes wrong, you might be in the position to make a travel-related compensation claim, as long as the incident was not your fault.


Although some people are worried or scared about flying, it is in fact an incredibly safe way to travel. The vast majority of air passengers have a relaxing and enjoyable time as part of their journey or holiday.

One thing many of us have suffered though is a delay at the airport when the flight we are waiting for is cancelled or pushed back further down the schedule. In this case, if your flight originates in the EU or the carrier is based on the EU, you may be able to claim financial compensation for your delay.

There are regulations in place that give airlines certain responsibility towards their passengers, depending on the length of the delay, and these can include free refreshments, access to phone calls and emails and in some cases, financial compensation.

It is easy to check the regulations online and see if you can make a claim.


For anyone involved in a car accident, it can be a shocking and distressing experience and in the worst cases, can cause great personal harm. No matter if you were the driver or passenger, if you are involved in a road accident that is not your fault, you may be able to make a compensation claim. By going online and checking you can find a wealth of information surrounding claims, as well as contact details, so you can discuss your options with an expert.


Making a claim can be daunting if you attempt to do it on your own, but by using a reputable claims firm, you can access professional help from someone that is specialised in the field.

This means that you will only be advised to move forward with a claim if it has a good basis for success and by using a ‘no win no fee’ deal you won’t be liable for any costs, no matter what the outcome.
