Which? response to Wow Air collapse

Rory Boland, Which? Travel Editor, said:

“Passengers will quite rightly be appalled that Wow Air was still selling tickets right up to the moment it collapsed knowing full well that any tickets sold would likely not be worth the paper they are printed on.

“You will need to check if you booked your flights as part of a package as this will mean you are ATOL protected and will be entitled to your money back.

“If not, you may still be able to claim through your travel insurance or card issuer but it will depend on your circumstances. You can visit which.co.uk for more advice on your rights.”
