If you choose FairPlane UK to handle your claim, then there’s absolutely nothing for you to pay up front.
If your claim is successful, we will then simply take our fee from the compensation we obtain for you from the airline.
In the unlikely event that your claim is unsuccessful, you will have nothing to pay. No surprise legal bills or any hidden costs. We will not charge you for the time we have spent working on your case.
FairPlane UK has a fantastic record when it comes to winning compensation for flight delay and cancellation claims.
We only charge you for our service when we successfully win your claim. Once we recover your compensation from the airline we will take our fee of 25% (+ VAT) & £20 insurance before transferring the remainder into your bank account. You will never be faced with any unexpected legal bills.
The service we provide
All the claims for flight compensation we take on are done so on a no-win no-fee basis. This means that the client faces no financial or legal riskwhatsoever during the process.
To ensure that we give claims the best possible chance of succeeding, we provide the following to all clients:
Why is the Insurance policy required?
Although we have a very high success rate when it comes to making flight delay compensation claims, we do lose the odd one occasionally. Normally, this would mean that the airline’s legal costs would need to be paid, but to avoid this we ask that every client pays for an After the Event Insurance (or ATE Insurance) policy. This is a specialist type of insurance policy often used by solicitors in conjunction with a No Win, No Fee agreement to protect people making claims against any financial risk.
We take out the ATE Insurance policy on your behalf at the beginning of your delayed flight compensation claim, but you only pay the £20 premium if we are successful for you. If we don’t recover any compensation or vouchers for you, then the premium doesn’t have to be paid and the insurance will cover all legal costs and expenses incurred.
What would it cost if I tried to make a claim myself?
Before making the decision to pursue a claim for flight delay compensation yourself, we would recommend that you give serious consideration to both the potential financial costs of doing so and the cost in terms of time and stress.
It is likely that you would have to pay some up-front costs initially, and then if court proceedings needed to be issued against the airline, an insurance fee of around £75 and a hearing fee of £105 would be required.
The process could take you weeks or even months to complete during which time you may have to write letters, read up on the regulation, prepare court proceedings, and attend court.
