Help - Out of pocket Expenses


our flights through Wizz Air direct got cancelled as the flight took off, had to be diverted back and then got cancelled. The return was also refunded when Wizz Air returned our payment because no alternatives could be found. What I am now trying to work out is along side any compensation what happens to the hotel charges we incurred, currency loss (in this case £122 worth!) and car parking charges which became useless. Is this on Wizz Air or an insurance claim? I have lodged a compensation claim for Wizz Air as it looks like it would be valid. 

Thank you

    A possible insurance claim if you have cover for these circumstances.

    WizzAir are not responsible for consequential losses such as your hotel charges, currency loss and car parking.

    Had these been a package holiday then a refund of the holiday cost would be expected. (flight/accommodation/transfer). I think you would still struggle claiming car parking.
