Steve Hill is FDC Claims resident expert on all things relating to the European Regulation 261/2004 and a key contributor on our site, helping raise consumer awareness of regulations in place to ensure travellers are rightfully compensated for disruptions caused to travel by airlines.
Before 2014, huge loophole airlines used was to excuse their delays was using technical problems. Naturally, technical issues on an airliner is a concern; however, it’s also mandatory for airlines to provide secure air transportation; therefore, delays blamed by technical problems are a cause to claim compensation and the airlines must pay.
The only time they aren’t required to pay compensation is due to exceptional circumstances, and the EU regulations are not lax on what is covered. Unless there are specific safety concerns relating to storm force weather, airport runway closures or crews striking (as examples), there are few circumstances when customers are unable to pursue claims against airline operators due to disruptions to their travel plans.
Meet Steve Hill
Steve Hill brings a wealth of experience to the team at FDC Claims in dealing with complex financial issues, mainly across consumer finance, mortgages, retirement planning and life insurance. It’s the recent experience in insurance that Steve has been able to assist consumers in navigating massively misunderstood or misinterpreted legal jargon that’s worded so technical. Consumers aren’t fully aware of their rights and the circumstances where there are legal avenues to pursue to provide adequate remuneration for conditions that affect your travels, whether for business or pleasure, which can be expensed to the airlines when they’re at fault.
With a knack for clear and clutter-free communication, Steve’s advice cuts to the core of problems, letting readers know and comprehend consumer rights and what they can do, even in the most complex of situations.
With over 30 years experience in deciphering financial jargon and working across a broad spectrum of consumer finance that affects us all every day, Steve is well-positioned to become an integral asset to FDC clients and consumers as a whole.

Regulation 261/2004 which defines the circumstances for EU airlines to pay passengers compensation when they suffer significant cancellations or delays to their journeys.

Whether you are going on a holiday or travelling for business, a delay always means your plans are disrupted. Unfortunately, airlines generally refuse to pay legal compensation. The lack of knowledge, expertise and time are passengers’ main reasons for not following a claim through.
