    If you booked a flight only direct with TC Airlines, you must have used a card and you will be able to claim a refund from the card issuer. Credit card companies will not pay compensation that was due under EU261 and have never done so to my knowledge

    Yes to be clear a refund for the flight and not any flight delay compensation

    If you paid with a debit card then you can ask the debit card issuer to make a ‘charge back’ but they are under no obligation to do so. Additionally, I think it’s unlikely that they would agree as that would leave them out of pocket, because TC accounts will be frozen.

    Credit card companies may not pay the compensation if the airline refused to pay out.
    But this is a different scenario where customers have had the promise of compensation payments before TC liquidated.
    This promise is a contract or service that has not been fulfilled and therefore, in my opinion, the Section 75 claim is viable.
    If you're new. read The FAQ and Vauban's Guide

  • Hi can anyone help! I was due £700 for compensation for a delayed flight in 2015. I was confirmed they would do a BACS payment 03.09.19. Now since they have ceased trading, is there anything I can do about this or have I lost out on this? Thanks

    you could possibly register as a creditor with the liquidators.

    And the admitted debts so far are £3.1 billion. It is time to forget compensation claims whether under EU261 or for poor holidays.
