Money Box Live: Travel rights

Departure board
BBC Radio 4's Money Box Live
Wednesday, 21 April 2010 at 1502 BST on Radio 4 and Online

Paul Lewis and guests took your calls and gave practical advice about your financial rights if your travel plans were ruined by last week's volcanic eruption in Iceland.

Are you covered by your travel insurance? What are your airline's responsibilities?

Can your tour operator help? Can you claim for compensation from your credit card company?

And what if you have flights booked for later this week? Will it cost to cancel?

Paul Lewis was joined by:

  • Nick Starling, director of general insurance at the Association of British Insurers
  • Rochelle Turner, head of research for Which? Holiday
  • Simon Calder, travel editor of the Independent

Presenter: Paul Lewis
Producer: Diane Richardson
