Thanks to Resolver I have today received a cheque for £1062 from TUI Airlines due to a delayed flight. Resolver made the process very easy.

I have used Resolver twice so far and both times the outcome has been excellent! Even when the airlines made the process difficult, after contacting them again via Resolver we got our money. I will definitely use Resolver again and would gladly recommend them.

Wow - Brilliant service. I claimed for a flight delay due to a technical fault. At first I was tempted to use a claims service because I had heard that the Ryanair was particularly difficult- but I was wrong on both counts. I used Resolver via the excellent Money Saving Expert site and received 400 Euro compensation in only 2 days! A fellow passenger approached a claims service (that take a cut) and was told that they wouldn't even deal with his claim, didn't think they would get it resolved! Well Resolver resolved mine! Really easy to use. Secure, Simple, Fast and Free. Thank you Resolver and Martin Lewis - and RyanAir. I will use all three again.

Excellent ... got me a refund on my coach ticket when I missed it because of a delayed flight... Thanks Resolver, you made it all very easy!

I have to agree with the many other reports that Resolver is GREAT! Magical powers they must have, as everyone appears to be very satisfied as soon as Resolver is involved. After several attempts to contact KLM with no replies, a refund was forthcoming from them very soon after I had contacted Resolver. Thank you so much.

Thrilled to receive full compensation from TUI for flight delays with the help of Resolver. The process is simple and makes claiming easy. Spared a tussle with the airline as cheque arrived before need to challenge. I can highly recommend your service. Thank you Resolver.

I used Resolver to claim against Ryanair for a delayed flight thinking I would never see the money. It took a short while but €400 was eventually received. I would recommend Resolver to anyone having problems with a claim against any company.
