Are you trying to claim the same amount twice, half each or some other arrangement?

 

 

Other people know more about travel insurance than I do, but I think they might expect you to claim from the airline. What does the policy document say?

For delay compensation - you can claim off both the airline (under Regulation 261/04 - which would be 600 euros per passenger for a four hours plus delay, under the cause of the delay was "extraordinary") and from your insurance - if your policy has the protection (some policies do, but it is often not a lot of money - perhaps £50 per 24 hours of delay).

 

For the costs you incurred by the delay (accommodation, meals, etc) you can only claim once, and as the airline is liable for these (even if the cause of the delay was extraordinary) your insurance company would expect you to claim from them first.

As Vauban says, for recovering out of pocket expenses - hotels, meals etc - you can only claim from one. You can't claim it twice. Insurers will normally expect you to claim from the airline first and only pay the difference between what their policy covers and what the airline pays you.

Also have a good look at 'Norwegian airline' website specifically this link: https://www.norwegian.com/uk/travel-info/delayed-and-cancelled-flights/cancelled-flights/

(read what it says about 'Your passenger rights' use it against them take a screenshot but read the rest and just think 'did they do that' if not mark/save it)

Thanks, the flight was cancelled after a 4 hr delay . The airline rebooked me on a new flight some 48 hrs later. I will submit a claim to the airline for the cancellation & i’ll Check my travel insurance docs to confirm if that covers flight cancellations. Thanks again

EU law give a set figure for delay compensation so you claim this from airline. any additional expenses not met by this you claim on insurance. If airline play silly sods you claim off insurenace for everything and let them chase airline but airline first.

Doesnt matter who the carrier is, the fact they haver an EU destination ( or start point) is enough
