Simon Calder's Independent Travel Podcast


June 27th - Do we need to start checking our plane's performance history?

If you are tracking a flight you have booked to see how well it is performing – and you don't like what you see – can you cancel and get a full refund? Sadly, perhaps, once you commit to a flight, past performance is inadmissable as grounds for getting your money back. But you can do some useful ground work. I take you through what tracking can be good for and what you can do to limit your loss if a flight is cancelled this summer.

Of course, this podcast is free, much like my weekly newsletter, which you can find at
