EC Regulation 261/2004 Flight Delay Claims 6 Year Time Limit

You can now claim compensation for delayed flights and other types of claim under EC Regulation 261/2004 up to 6 years from the date of travel, so ruled the Court of Appeal ruled on 19-06-14.  Thomson Airlines tried to argue that the correct period was 2 years under the Montreal Convention but this was rejected.

If you have had a claim rejected by the airline because it is more than 2 years old try again! and mention the case of Dawson v Thomson Airlines – Court of Appeal 2014.  If you have been to court and had a claim dismissed then you may be able to appeal if you are within 21 days of the decision otherwise you are probably stuck with that decision.

CPP card and identity protection – claims deadline 30th August 2014!

If you have taken out (or renewed) card or identity fraud protection from the company CPP since 14th January 2005 it may have been mis-sold to you and you may be entitled to recover the cost to you of taking out the cover together with any interest.  The Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) is the government body responsible for regulating the financial industry and it has found that a number of banks, credit card companies and CPP themselves have mis-sold cover (provided by CPP) and must set up a scheme to refund customers to whom the cover was mis-sold.
