The Consumer Council is reminding holidaymakers in Newry to be aware of their rights, following reports that thousands of UK travellers suffered significant flight delays last year. holidayJenny Robinson, Transport Policy Officer at the Consumer Council said, “Many of us will head off and our journeys will go to plan. However, it is important to know your rights if something does go wrong. “If your journey is delayed or cancelled, you are entitled to assistance and in some cases compensation. Assistance can be meals and refreshments, telephone calls and emails, and overnight accommodation while you wait.” Jenny continued, “We encourage all consumers to get a copy of our guides. We have ‘Plane Facts’ for your rights if your flight is delayed or cancelled and ‘Access to Air Travel’ for those flying with a disability or mobility issue. “We also have ‘Plain Sailing’ for your rights if your ferry is delayed or cancelled and ‘Access to Ferry Travel’ for those sailing with a disability or mobility issue. “We also have travel rights podcasts which are available to download from the Consumer Council website
