3. Compensation

3.1 You are entitled to a refund of the costs made specifically to pay for your pre-purchased extra baggage, if:

(I) your flight is not operated by KLM, or
(II) the baggage for which you have bought the pre-purchased extra baggage allowance is lost and is not found within a reasonable length of time.

3.2 You are not entitled to a refund if you decide to take less baggage with you than you are entitled to on the basis of your pre-purchased extra baggage. If you decide to take more baggage than the total allowance, including the pre-purchased extra baggage, you pay the normal excess baggage fee for the excess amount.

3.3 If you are able to change your flight on the grounds of the fee conditions applicable to your ticket, you can still use your pre-purchased extra baggage in combination with your amended ticket.

3.4 A refund request may only be submitted through our website.
