    Do you know your rights?

    Less than 2% of passengers worldwide know their rights. We would like to help you receive the refund you are entitled to for a flight cancellation - at the touch of a button!

    You can always get money back

    If you want to cancel your flight or just did not use the flight, you have a statutory refund entitlement regardless of which airline and which fare you booked. That is because the taxes, fees and personal surcharges paid by you in advance with the fare will only be charged if you actually take the flight. If you don’t take the flight, you are entitled to a refund.

    You can always get money back

    If you want to cancel your flight or just did not use the flight, you have a statutory refund entitlement regardless of which airline and which fare you booked. That is because the taxes, fees and personal surcharges paid by you in advance with the fare will only be charged if you actually take the flight. If you don’t take the flight, you are entitled to a refund.

    The airfare price is made up of three components

    The total airfare price is always made up of three components. It consists of the pure airfare that the airline charges to meet its fixed costs, the state taxes and fees that the airline has to pay to the tax office, the Federal Police and the airport operator, and the personal surcharges such as luggage and seat reservation charges. If you want to cancel your flight or just did not take your flight, you are always entitled to a refund for the taxes, fees and surcharges. We can take care of it for you.

    Claims exist for 3 years retroactively

    Your statutory refund claims after a cancellation or an unused flight still exist 3 years after the original flight date. This is a consequence of general statutory limitation rules. So you can claim a refund for flights you did not take over last 3 years today.

    German law for German passengers

    European law provides in principle that airlines are allowed to apply foreign law to carriage contracts. We have long held this to be an unjustified disadvantage to air travellers, as this regulation does not apply in other areas. From our point of view, German passengers should also be able to appeal to German law. However, the airlines’ choice-of-law clauses are mostly non-transparent and are therefore invalid. If foreign law nevertheless applies, we still enforce your rights under foreign law. We work together with many European lawyers and legal experts.

    Frequently asked questions

    In our FAQ you will find all the information you need about cancellations and refunds for airline tickets, the settlement of your claim on Geld-für-Flug.de and what else you should consider in the event of a missed flight.

    We buy your (old) airline tickets quickly, easily and in a legally secure way – whether it is because you cancel your flight or simply do not take it. Using the information you provide, we calculate an offer amount based on the statutory refund claims. These claims extend in particular to the taxes, fees and personal surcharges under the current legal situation. You will receive our non-binding offer within a very short time by e-mail. Upon acceptance of our offer, we will transfer the specified amount immediately after assignment of your claims using the payment method chosen by you. That means we take care of everything for you quickly and easily.

    If you did not or will not take a flight, you can submit the flight booking to us – even retroactively for the last three calendar years. This also applies if your flight cannot be cancelled or refunded according to the airline’s terms and conditions for booking. We generally process all flights that start or end within the European Union. However, due to the sometimes differing legal situations, certain flights or airlines may be exempted. That is why we review each case individually – this process is free for you.

    In addition to a small amount of information about yourself, you only need to submit the relevant data for the flight booking you would like to offer us. The key here is the booking confirmation/invoice with proof of the total amount paid. You can upload these documents in electronic form (e.g. PDF or image). It is important, especially for bookings with more than one traveller, that the (main) booker indicated on the submitted documents always submits the flight to us.

    Our offer amount is calculated on the basis of the submitted documents and the associated information, so it is always different depending on the situation. Each case is individually reviewed by our travel law experts in conjunction with an algorithm developed specifically for this process. Due to the variety of factors involved, it is not possible to specify a lump sum in advance. There is no separate processing fee for our service. The amount stated in our offer is also the amount that you will receive as a payment.

    There is no risk for you. Submission of your flight booking is completely non-binding and free of charge. Based on your data, you will receive a concrete purchase offer from us, which you can accept or refuse. From the time you accept the offer, we will take care of the entire cancellation process as well as any communication with the airline in our own name and at our own risk. So you can always keep your money regardless of whether we are successful!

    You can always try to submit your claims directly with the airline or the travel agency. However, most airlines and travel agencies vehemently refuse to provide the refund you are entitled to or levy horrendous processing fees. It is often necessary to hire a lawyer or go to court. We would, however, like to draw your attention to one exceptional case: If you booked your flight directly on the Lufthansa Group website and cannot make both outbound and return flights, you will usually receive the taxes and fees back from Lufthansa in a straightforward manner.
