Planning Travel During Hurricane Season

Hurricane season officially runs from June 1 through November 30. The most active months historically are September and October. Planning for travel during hurricane season takes work, but it is possible if you know the islands that are most affected, and you are open to considering alternate destinations.

Islands off the coast of South America are considered to be outside of the hurricane danger zone. These are the islands of Aruba, Bonaire, Curacao, Trinidad and Tobago. I can’t predict the weather, but these are good options if you are planning to travel from mid-August through October.

The Hawaiian islands are also prone to experiencing hurricanes the same time of the year. Not as frequent as the Caribbean, but can be highly likely. No one can predict the weather, and Mother Nature goes by her own rules.

Why You Need To Find A Good Travel Agent

Now more than ever you need to find a good travel agent. Airline cancellations, hotel and resort closures, travel restrictions, and destination entry requirements vary.

There are numerous consumer complaints about online travel sites and their spotty record of customer service recently, and those that just closed up shop never to be heard from again. Past & current issues ranging from unspecified post-trip charges to credit cards, airline tickets being rebooked to the wrong destination after a schedule change, being bounced from one supplier to another to resolve a problem, and hotel reservations not on record when guests show up. Add to that long hold times and dropped calls when needing to talk to a human and a lack of response to questions and complaints.

There are numerous stories about how agents saved the day for their clients. Getting them where they needed to go, and then working to get their customers refunds and credits. This is the best reason to work with a good travel agent, advocacy. Travel advisors have relationships with those who make decisions. If something goes wrong you have someone to step in to help you.

People are getting fed up with their online travel experience. Google’s research shows it takes 32 visits to 10 websites just to book a single airline ticket. Don’t waste your time or money; find a travel advisor to work with.
