My Flight is Delayed, What Can I Do?

My Flight is Delayed, What Can I Do?

My Flight One

It’s very annoying when your flight is delayed or cancelled but luckily travelers in Europe can be entitled to compensation for delayed or cancelled flights. Please note that not every delay can be justified as a DELAY. Within Europe a delay can be considered only if:

  • The flight was delayed by at least 2 hours for a journey of up to 1,500 km.
  • The flight was delayed by at least 3 hours for a journey exceeding 1,500 km within the European Union, or a journey between 1,500 and 3,500 km to or from a non-European country. 
  • The flight was delayed by at least 4 hours for a journey exceeding 3,500 km to or from a non-European country.

Compensair helps you get compensated not only in the case of flight delay or cancellation but also in case of a denied boarding or missed connections.

The traveler can get from €250 to €600 for problems with flights operating in Turkey, Iceland, Norway, Switzerland or any other country in the European Union. The compensated amount is related to the distance flown.

How can I use this service?

The traveler must sign a consent form and provide information about the flight(s) and ticket number. Furthermore, specialists will make a detailed analysis of the situation, prepare a claim and conduct a “legal dialogue” with the airline. The client is informed of all important steps via e-mail or SMS. You can create an application using this link (no payment is required from you at the moment of submission)

 

Which travelers are entitled to submit an application and to use this service?

All the travelers who flew in the last six year can use the services regardless of citizenship. This means that a traveler can get compensation even if he or she is not an EU citizen. Compensair takes care of everything.

 

How much time does it take to receive a compensation?

On average, the claim is proceed within three to four days from the time of the request. It might require up to eight weeks in the case of pre-trial proceedings, and up to 20 weeks if the claim is resolved through a court.

 

What are the rules for missed connection?

If one or more flights were delayed or cancelled, the total delay to your final destination point determines your right for compensation. If you book several flights under different booking codes (different tickets), each will be regarded as a separate flight with own starting and final points.

 

Can the airline avoid compensating the traveler?

Yes, delayed flight compensation claims can be avoided if an airline can prove the flight delay was caused by exceptional circumstances beyond their control and in many cases a strike or extreme weather conditions occurred.

 

So, how does Compensair make money then?

If the claim is successfully finished, the traveler receives 75% of the compensation and the remaining 25% is Compensair’s commission. In case of failure, the traveler does not bear any costs, since the fee is only charged after receiving compensation (in case of success).

You don’t have to accept flight delays and do nothing about it, so hurry up and get your compensation with one click in case you are eligible.

5 Things to Do on a Trip to Las Vegas

5 things to do on a trip to Las Vegas

My Flight One

If you have ever seen or heard of Las Vegas you would probably know that there are many things that you could do on a trip to Vegas, in this post we will stick to five that we recommend you to do in order to make a fantastic short trip to the Sin City.

1. Stay in a luxurious hotel

Find yourself a nice hotel at a discount located on the strip where you can enjoy the view and the facilities of this hotel (like the swimming pool, gym, spa and so on). Some travelers they mention that it’s not worth to book a nice hotel room because you spend most of your time outside the hotel anyway. We have a different opinion about that, My Flight One thinks that it’s important to have few hours for resting in between your activities in Las Vegas and of course after a long day you need a comfortable bed for few hours of sleep, after all you should not forget that you are there on a holiday so it’s important to feel comfortable.

Here you can find the best hotel deals in Las Vegas:

2. The Las Vegas hotel tour and its wide-range buffet

A wide-range of delicious buffets are offered by most hotels in Vegas, depending on your appetite you can purchase the buffet either one time access or weekend-access (please note that most of the time alcoholic beverages are not included in the rate) and don’t worry we found you a great way to burn those calories you got from your meal(s), the best way is to do the hotel tours visit after the meal, you can go for a walk at your pace to different hotels on the strip and enjoy the amazing themes and short shows in each hotel, there are few hotels connected to each other through halls so you can avoid walking in the heat, just to mention as well you can do this tour on your own or you could also try a guided comprehensive tour which is a combination of walk and bus tour (check it out here). Another good idea is to combine the tour with food which will give you some room for other activities, check out this afternoon walk down the strip deal.

In case it’s not your first time in Las Vegas then we advise you to do a memorable 10-15 minute helicopter-tour for a reasonable price, in case you haven’t done it already (check out here).

3. A pool party is a “MUST”

As you might have heard already, Las Vegas is a well-known destination for all-day party mood. If you are a party lover then we recommend you to go to a pool party (day-club). First, it would be a great idea to check-out the pool at your hotel since pool access is included in the room rate, in case the party at the hotel was not good enough for you then you can try another pool in another hotel. For example, The Encore, Wet republic ultra pool and The Marquee are known for having one of the best pool party atmospheres in Vegas. If you wish to enjoy an outrageous first-class party in the sun at the best Sin City daytime hotspots then check out this deal.

4. Don’t forget the show

Attending a show before a night-out is something we recommend you to do instead of resting after you had an amazing pool party. There are a lot of shows in Las Vegas which are known for their creative visual performance in the theater, attending these kind of shows will clear your mind while you will enjoy watching a top-notch talented performers.

Here are few upcoming shows that you could buy:

5. Party hard in one of the best nightclubs

Nightclubs in Las Vegas have the best residential DJs in the world, which makes going-out at night very interesting and highly recommended for party people, to name few of the clubs where the most famous DJs in the world are playing (Tiesto, Alesso, Calvin Harris and Hardwell):

  • XS

10 Tips for Travelling Luxurious on a Budget

10 Tips for Travelling Luxurious on a Budget

My Flight One

Luxurious travelling on a budget means enjoying a luxurious holiday, staying in a luxurious but affordable hotels and doing a lot of activities during your trip without spending a fortune. Here are our 10 tips for luxurious travel on a budget:

Tip 1: Set your budget

Before you start planning your trip, you need to set your budget. Ask yourself how much you are willing to spend on a luxury holiday? You don’t have to come-up with an exact number but put a limit or a range in mind. This range/limit will help you decide making a trade-off. For example, you could book a luxurious hotel room and save on the flight by booking cheap flights with one or two layovers (direct flights are more expensive than the ones which include one stop or two).   

Tip 2: Book your flight in advance

One of the most important elements of finding a cheap flight tickets is to plan in advance, whether you are planning a short city trip for the weekend or a long holiday. Although, you can find very attractive last-minute flight deals, but we always advise our travelers to book their flight ticket in advance, it’s just a matter of getting organized. Booking in advance can save you a lot of money, this is a known tip for most frequent travelers.  

Tip 3: Be flexible on dates

Being flexible on dates doesn’t mean travelling in low season only, it means shifting your holiday by +/- one to three days or maybe weeks in order to get the best price for your flight tickets. We do understand that it’s not always possible to do that due to work or personal commitments. My Flight One recommends its travelers to avoid travelling on the weekend, start your holiday on Thursdays and come back on Mondays if possible. Also, being flexible on time (e.g. arriving midnight) can save you some money as well.  

Tip 4: Use our “Low Fare Calendar”

Low Fare Calendar widget is one of the great features My Flight One has. The Low Fare Calendar allows our customers to fly cheap by providing them visibility on the cheapest month to fly to any given destination. As mentioned in tip 2, you have to be flexible on dates in order to get the best price for your flight.  

Tip 5: Book discounted hotel rooms

Travelling on a budget doesn’t mean you cannot enjoy staying in a luxurious hotel or enjoying a comfortable room. You can still save money while enjoying a luxurious room but in order to do so, you need to look for a valuable hotel deals, meaning look for discounted hotel room rates. You can search and book your discounted hotel room on our website. When you search for hotels on our website, make sure you sort the search results by “discount” to view all the discounted room rates available at your travel destination. We will regularly post the best hotel deals on our social media pages, so follow us to stay up to date.

Here some of the luxurious discounted hotel rooms in New York as an example:

Tip 6: Use the “My Flight One” hotel map

If you are travelling for a city trip then we recommend you to use our hotel map below, this map appears when you search for a hotel on our website and it shows you where things are happening (you can do so by clicking on “view on map” on the left-hand side of the search form.). The darker the color the more activities you could do around the hotel (sightseeing areas, eating area, shopping areas and nightlife areas). Here is an example of the hotel heat map:

Tip 7: Plan your tours 

Planning your activities is a key success factor to enjoying your holiday. Make sure you book your tickets to museums and attractions ahead of your trip in order not to waste your time during the trip. Musement is a very a good place to plan your activities in advance, they offer affordable guided tours and tickets to attractions. Moreover, they provide great special offers and visibility on events happening near you. Check it out here.

Tip 8: Cheap Transportation (cars or trains)

Now that you’ve booked your tours and you know where you are going to, arranging your transportation is an important element of enjoying your holiday. In some European cities you might not even need a transportation and you can just enjoy walking short distances. However, to travel from one city to another you would need either a train or a car depending on your budget. We recommend you to use Auto Europe for car renting (click here to book a car in advance). They also provide luxury cars (click here if you are interested in renting luxury cars). European cities are connected very well through railways and parking can be very expensive in some cities so using the train might be a solution for you if you are not planning on renting the car (click here to book your train ticket in advance). In case you are staying in the country side (where hotel rooms are cheaper) then renting a car would be ideal for transporting from one city to another (get your free E-book guide of renting a car in Europe by clicking here). Understanding both the traffic law of your destination country and the rental car contract are very important. You may want to be aware that some rental car companies may charge you with administration fees in case you get a fine (fees for providing your data to the police department), so you really need to understand the law in order to avoid getting a fine and save some money for other activities on your holidays.

My Flight One is willing to offer its customers discounts, even free tickets (for those of you who travel a lot) depending on the number of tickets purchased. Contact us via email if you need any help on info@my-flightone.com or via our social media platforms Facebook and/or Instagram.

Tip 10: Flight Delayed or Cancelled? Get compensated  In worst case scenarios which cannot be avoided, your flight can get cancelled or delayed for all kind of reasons which might ruin your plan during your holiday. BUT don’t worry! You can get compensated for that, all you need to do is entering your flight details including a short description in this link here. The possibility of compensation is available on the flights of all registered EU carriers. Please note that compensation doesn’t include problems caused by extreme circumstances (unfavorable weather conditions, acts of terrorism, etc.) If the claim is successfully finished, the traveler is paid 75% of the compensation received. The remaining 25% is Compensair’s commission (the company who helped with the compensation process). In case of failure, the traveler does not bear any costs, since the fee is only charged after receiving compensation.

Three Things Not To Forget While Traveling

Three things not to forget while traveling

My Flight One

Every traveler in this world looks for few travel tips before going on a trip. My Flight One provides three main things that every traveler should not forget before going on a plane and while traveling.

1. Do Not Forget Your Travel Document.

Travel document (ID and/or Passport) is very important for every traveler from every country in this world, you don’t want to forget your document at home or in a hotel room, because simply you need it to cross the borders from one country to another and you cannot travel without it. Your travel document is the first thing to remember before you get on a plane.

It’s necessary to check if you require a visa to the country of destination before traveling, click here and lookup your passport to check wether or not you require a visa to your travel destination.

 

2. Do Not Forget Your Wallet.

Money cannot buy you happiness but it can definitely buy you a pair of socks if you left your socks at home or while travelling. Forgetting your wallet or money at home can be unpleasant, without money you cannot buy anything and simply you cannot enjoy the restaurants and venues at your travel destination.

 

3. Do Not Forget Your Mobile Phone.

Always make sure that you have your mobile phone with you. You can use your phone for a lot of things, like checking your emails, reading the news, listening to music, checking interesting places and attractions around you and simply navigate.
