Disgruntled flyers who've endured four-hour flight delays could get as much as ‚ā¨600 in refunds from a website that will process your claim for you.
Refund.me claims to help consumers obtain compensation from airlines when their travel plans have been thwarted by flight delays and missed connections.
It's the latest site borne out of customer frustrations when claims have been denied.
In Europe, a plethora of fee-charging claims sites already exist including EUClaim, SkyMediator, and Eudelay.co.uk.
Here's how it works: Refund.me asks users to first key in their flight data and upload their travel documents. If the claim is justified, the company files a claim on your behalf and takes a 15 percent commission on the compensation.
The service is touted for being fast and efficient, taking the guesswork and paperwork out of a tedious process that many dinged passengers can't be bothered to undertake.
According to Forbes, nine months after the German-based website launched earlier this year, the company has processed claims from 122 airlines for passengers in more than 50 countries.
