Yes, the Guarantee protects all forms of transportation in your trip.
When you choose any of the options provided by us under the Kiwi.com Guarantee (e.g. an alternative trip or a refund from us), any claims related to your tickets will be transferred (assigned) to us. For example, any refunds for tickets or damages or compensation from the carriers will go to us.
This transfer of claims does not apply to the compensation claims and claims for damages that are handled for you by a third-party service added through us, e.g. AirHelp+. The third-party service provider will handle these claims according to their terms. We’ll only keep the claim for refunds.
