About us

EU Regulation 261/2004 foresees that passengers, travelling to or from any European airport, are entitled to a financial compensation in case of a delay of more than 3 hours, cancellation or overbooking.
Unfortunately, there are plenty of justifications airlines invoke in order not to compensate passengers that they have served badly. This is why we started Claim it.

Our history

It all started with a very long delay on a flight, Ralph Pais, our founder & C.E.O., experienced back in 2012. Within hours of engaging in his dispute with the airline – just in order to obtain what was his legal due – he realized he had stumbled upon a widespread problem.

Being entrepreneurial, Ralph views every problem as an opportunity. And that is the true foundational story of Claim It.

Our team: experienced and passionnate experts

Our international team is made up of legal experts and top negotiators who have a deep knowledge and passion for passenger rights. They perfectly know all the tricks and arguments some airlines use in order not to compensate passengers and how to counter them.

When it comes to aiding disgruntled airline passengers, we at Claim it are unparalleled. Our organization has recovered large amounts for poorly served travelers since 20xx. Our impressive track record is made possible by the fact that we take the complaints of our clients personally. Always dedicated and results-driven, our team is accustomed to going above and beyond of what is expected of a firm.
