Dont Let Stormy Weather Ruin your Vacation
Hurricane season is June 1 through November 30, peaking in mid-August to late October. Here are traveling and safety tips so storm damage has little to know damage on your vacation.
- Hurricanes can disrupt flights and you may be separated from your baggage. You can minimize this inconvenience by packing necessities in your carry-on bags. Also, our travel insurance plans can reimburse you if you need to buy necessary items if your bags are delayed more than 12-24 hours, depending on your plan.
- It's tempting to completely unplug on vacation, but advance warning about hurricanes is not always guaranteed. We recommend you keep up-to-date on the latest information about possible storms before and during your trip.
- If you're truly concerned about a hurricane impacting your travel plans, consider taking a cruise to your destination as they are more flexible than flights and can detour to alternative ports.
Families or groups traveling together should make an emergency plan to determine where they are going to meet and how they will get there. Additionally, they should check with their accommodation provider to see if they can access an emergency kit with a radio, water, food and other survival basics, if necessary.
