Huge disruption to train lines today as Great Western Railway advises people not to travel

Explained: Your rights if your flight is cancelled

Travel editor Rory Boland, for Which?, has given valuable advice for travellers whose flights are being delayed or cancelled due to Storm Eunice winds.

Boland has said: “A significant number of flights are likely to be cancelled as a result of Storm Eunice. These extraordinary circumstances mean you are not entitled to compensation, but your airline is required to pay for food and drink if you need to wait in the airport terminal for your rescheduled flight, and accommodation and transport to it if you are stuck overnight,

“You should contact your airline initially, which should provide vouchers for use at the airport. If it refuses to help, you can purchase what you are entitled to yourself and claim the money back from the airline afterwards.

“Pay by credit card if you can, and stick to sensibly priced meals and three star hotels – you won’t be able to claim for a lobster dinner or five star suite.”
