Flights delays can ruin your holiday and put you in a bad mood. Unfortunately flight delays are out of your control and you can usually blame them on weather, some mechanical fault or industrial actions. While there is nothing you can do to stop them, you can prevent them from ruining your trip.

Get what is owed to you
If your flight is delayed by more than a few hours make sure you talk to the flight operator to see what you deserve. Even if it is only water it will mean you won’t have to pay for it.

Pamper yourself
Flight delays can be boring and expensive so make sure you take some time out to pamper yourself without spending any money. Spend some time sprucing yourself up at the beauty counter or make sure you smell nice with a few spritz of sample perfumes.

Have a chat
Pass some time by chatting with the person sitting beside you. You never know what you might discover.

Make sure you are insured
Making sure you are insured will go a long way in ensuring you have as much of a stress-free delay as possible.
