Claim your compensation
The airline cannot force you to accept a travel voucher. You are entitled to request a bank transfer.
Article 7 of European Regulation (EC) 261/2004 provides that 'the compensation referred to in paragraph 1 shall be paid in cash, by electronic bank transfer, bank orders or bank cheques or, with the signed agreement of the passenger, in travel vouchers and/or other services'.
Although the airline can offer a voucher, it is your choice whether to accept this or not, and your right to request a bank transfer.
