Baggage rights

Feel like learning more about your baggage rights?

Read our brief, easy-to-understand overview below

Ever wondered who is responsible for your precious baggage after you part with it at the airport? The airline takes responsibility for any checked baggage you trust them with, giving you a legal right for reimbursement, up to €1300. This covers damaged baggage, loss of baggage, and also expenses they induce by delaying your baggage. Even damaged hand luggage is covered by it, if the damage is the direct fault of the airline. As of now, 152 countries had ratified the Warsaw Convention and 120 countries the Montreal Convention, which currently regulate air baggage transport – this means their applicability extends well beyond EU boundaries. Find out how this relates to your claim below!
