Overbooking is a very serious inconvenience totally borne by the airlines. The passenger is guaranteed maximum protection both with alternative flights and with various types of compensation. By sending us the tickets and all receipts relating to the episode, we can guarantee you full and fast refunds.
What is overbooking?
It often happens that airlines accept reservations for a greater number of seats than the aircraft capacity and thus cause overbooking. In this situation, despite having regularly booked and purchased the flight, some passengers are denied boarding for lack of available seats.
For those who are victims of this case (also called denied boarding), which is exclusively attributable to the airline, European legislation provides for a series of protections.
Reimbursement for overbooking is always due
In case of overbooking, non-consenting passengers are always entitled to the European cash compensation, which also in this case varies from 250 to 600 euros depending on the length of the route in kilometers:
– 250 euros for routes less than 1,500 km;
– 400 euros for routes between 1,500 and 3,500 km;
– 600 euros for routes over 3,500 km.
Furthermore, if the passenger is not promptly rebooked on an alternative flight, the airline is required to refund the full ticket price within seven days.
