- Travel Advice Unit of the Foreign & Commonwealth Office (FCO)
- World Health Organisation (WHO)

2. Extended Delayed Departure
Not only will we pay you for the first 12 hours of delay, but also every concurrent 12 hour period up to the indicated in the list above as long as you do eventually continue on your planned trip.
If you are unable to continue on your trip and have paid or are contracted to pay for your public transport and accommodation, you can claim for benefits. Before you claim, be sure that:
- Your public transport from home is cancelled or delayed for more than 12 hours
- You are denied boarding due to overbooking and there are no alternatives within 12 hours
- Air space closures as a direct result of a volcanic eruptions
You also can claim when you have to make alternative travel arrangements because the public transport provider failed to offer reasonable alternatives after:
- Your public transport is cancelled/delayed for 12 hours, or redirected/diverted after you take off
- You are not allowed to board and there are no alternative flights within a 12 hour period
- Volcanic eruptions cause an air space closure
