3. About cost and pricing

How much does the service cost if the matter is settled amicably?

If the claim is settled amicably, we will charge a Settlement Fee. Please check our Pricing List for more details.

If the claim is won in court, we will charge a Legal Action Fee in addition to the the Settlement Fee. Please check our Pricing List for more details.

Do I have to pay Weclaim if the claim is unsuccessful?

No. You don’t owe us anything if the claim is unsuccessful.


4. About the amicable resolution process

How long does the claim process take?

On average we settled claims in approximately 70 days. Sometimes it takes more than that depending on your case and who is the air carrier.

Why is the claim process sometimes taking much longer?

Some claims are processed by companies faster than others. This time varies depending on the carrier, the time of year and the number of claims the carrier must process. Unfortunately, in some rare cases this process takes up to several months. Do not lose hope because in the end we will get an answer and we will take them to court if necessary.

What happens if a settlement agreement is reached with the company?

If the claim is settled amicably we will pay you the compensation on your bank account within 30 days after the money hits our bank account.

What should I do if the carriers contacts me personally after Weclaim filed a claim for me?

Contact the legal expert in charge of your case immediately. Airlines sometimes try to offer passenger less than what they are entitled to. We will always claim what the law provides you are owed.

Can I use Weclaim if my travel claim was wrongfully rejected?

Yes. If you believe the carrier wrongfully rejected your claim you can start a claim with us and our legal expert.

Is Weclaim systematically claiming additional compensation for travellers?

Some travel disruptions can have far greater financial consequences than the simple fixed compensation provided for by the European regulations. This is why Weclaim - unlike all others - will systematically claim additional compensation when your situation warrants it. That's more money for you.

What happens if the carrier never replies?

If the carrier does not respond, your claim will be submitted to our senior legal team for a legal assessment. The next step will be to take the matter to the competent court if your claim is considered legally viable.


5. About the court phase

Who determines whether a claim should be brought before the court?

Weclaim’s senior legal team and legal partners will decide whether the case should be taken to court based on the legal merits of the claim. We will keep you informed at every step.

Do I have to pay the legal costs?

No, Weclaim pays all the extra costs, including court fees and attorney fees and you don’t have to pay these costs whether the case is won or lost. If we win the case in court, we charge the Legal Action Fee. See our Pricing for more details.

Do I have to pay Weclaim if the claim is rejected by the Court?

No, you don’t have to pay us anything if the Court rejects the claim.

How long does the court phase last?
