Making a claim
 

It is important that you keep all receipts of expenses incurred to help you in making any claims for a refund or compensation in due course.

 

There are various ways in which you can pursue a claim to try and recover the costs of the holiday components booked via the lowcostholidays.com website which are no longer valid. However, the administrators can neither recommend, nor confirm which is the best approach for you, nor can we guarantee that your claim(s) will be successful. The potential claim options are listed below:

 

  1. Your credit or debit card issuer. UK customers should visit http://www.theukcardsassociation.org.uk/news/LCTGadvice.asp for guidance in this respect. 
  2. Govern de les Illes Balears (http://www.caib.es / http://www.caib.es/govern/sac/fitxa.do?codi=2657363&coduo=165) who is the regulator of the Spanish Travel Agency.
  3. Other payment/buyer protection schemes (for example, if you paid for your booking via PayPal, you may be able to claim under PayPal Buyer Protection).
  4. Personal travel insurance policy. (Note: the Covermore travel insurance sold via lowcostholidays.com does not cover for insolvency). Please check with your travel insurance provider.
  5. For customers in the Republic of Ireland only, the Irish Commission for Aviation Regulation holds a bond for the repatriation of and refund to customers who have paid for forward bookings with lowcostholidays (including 'flight only' as well as package holidays originating in the Republic of Ireland).

Helps you prepare your emails

We provide a wide range of flexible email templates for you to adapt to your needs – just slot in the specific details for your case, and in a few short clicks your issue will be ready to go.

If you’re not satisfied with the initial response from the organisation you have an issue with, our escalation process will let you know when you can raise your complaint to the next level of seniority and, ultimately to an ombudsman or regulator, where appropriate.

Excellent resource for any disputes you have with suppliers. After the holiday company dismissed my email complaint I said I was going to issue it formally through the Resolver process and they offered me compensation without me having to do anything else! The power of the Resolver name/process - thanks Resolver

I had a great result using Resolver. The travel agent I was complaining to was not taking my issue seriously until I involved Resolver. I soon received a refund

I had an ongoing dispute with a holiday company. Although I eventually had to give up, Resolver did get me to a Senior Manager, which was more than I could do. If I need to I will definitely use Resolver again.

I think that some big companies think that they can ignore their customers when they have a problem. It's good to know that now us 'little people' have someone who can fight the cause for us. Awesome service which I have already recommended to my friends - thanks again Resolver.

Diane’s issue was with Monarch over an issue with a delayed plane. She submitted the documents and received her delayed flight compensation and received £330. ‘I would have given up if it was not for resolver, it took the hassle of dealing with my issue.’
