Travel compensation 10:23 - Jun 7 with 1447 viewsTheChef

One for the LFW hive mind.

We were in Italy last week and due to fly back on Sunday night. Friday I received an email from Easyjet saying that the flight was cancelled due to strike action at Italian airports - we couldn't find any suitable Easyjet replacement flight for the Sunday or Monday (kids would already miss a day of school) so we accepted an Easyjet refund and rebooked on a Ryanair flight on the Monday evening.

Have tried to claim back on travel insurance but they said because of the advance notification of the cancellation (not at the airport on the day of the flight, having checked in) then we're not covered. So we would need to go back to Easyjet for compensation - but having accepted a refund I don't think that will work.

Do we have any other recourse for compensation, or do we basically have to swallow the extra expenses (flight, accommodation, food, etc.)?

Cheers!

Strikes seem to be defined as 'extraordinary circumstances' so you might be out of luck for any compensation
