Cancelled Flight Advice

Hi All,

I was hoping for some advice. My flight from San Francisco to Montrose Airport was cancelled, and we were told the next available route to Montrose was the following day via Denver Airport.

We decided to instead fly to Aspen and then rent a Vehicle so as not to avoid losing a day of our holiday.

Can we claim for this vehicle?

Claim from whom?
American-nope. They've never covered a rental car even if it's a reroute due to MX

Private insurance-possibly. Read the T&C of your policy .

Sounds like you were flying United by mentioning SFO and DEN?

It would be nice if they did.
If you can convince the airline how important you are and how it's really really in their best interest to accommodate your request, then sure. Otherwise, good luck trying.

There's basically no chance the airline will allow this. They are required under the CoC to get you to your final destination, no commitment on time. They offered you a flight to your destination the next day and you chose to go a different route, so the additional cost is on you for that reason. Again, as a poster above said, your travel insurance may have a more liberal policy on this.

On rare occasion, ive been able to get a refund if an airline has not been able to get me to a final destination- specifically when it was their fault (mechanical, crew issue) But it needs to be documented as it is happening. In OPs case, if the agent noted that you willfully agreed to rerouting, and if it was weather related, then zero chance of anything.

I fly every week. I dont have 'travel insurance'. So dont feel bad if you dont.

As well as MTJ which I believe only UA fly nonstop. If AA you'd have to route via LAX or PHX, and getting to DEN you'd have to do the same.
