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 annually and are willing to compromise on the destination.

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.

If you are planning a special getaway during hurricane season, the services of a travel advisor are priceless. How can a travel advisor help during a major storm event?

I receive updates from my travel suppliers and destination tourist boards that the general public does not receive. If you book online, you are taking a big risk which was pointed out in a post on the Elliott Forum.

Popular months for honeymoon trips are September, October and November; two of these months have the most potential for an active named hurricane. If you have your heart set on a specific destination, let’s chat.

Honeymoon Planning & Destination

After your wedding plans have come together, it is time for honeymoon planning and to choose a destination. One question many couples have is, “when is the best time to take a honeymoon?” There is no simple answer to this question, and there are 3 things to think about. The time of the year you will be getting married, the amount that you are comfortable spending, and the destination you have your heart set on visiting.

Time Of The Year For Your Honeymoon

If your wedding will take place from June through November, it may be a good choice to delay your honeymoon. That is hurricane season, and historically most hurricanes occur from August through October, but no one can predict the weather. Hurricanes can impact travel to Mexico, the Caribbean, Florida, and the Eastern & Gulf coasts of the United States.

 Destination Budget

The amount that you have available to spend will be a big deciding factor. If you have your heart set on a destination such as Tahiti, but only have $3,000 to spend, it is not a realistic expectation. If you want to travel during “prime” season (November through March) to destinations in the Caribbean and Mexico; expect to pay more. Many couples choose to delay their honeymoon, so they have time to save up to take their dream trip.

Honeymoon Planning & Destination

Not all destinations are the same. Each location and climate varies. Have your heart set on honeymooning in Costa Rica in October? This gem of the Caribbean receives most of its rainfall from September through October.

Working with a honeymoon planning & destination travel specialist will help you plan the best trip possible. I know the destinations, and will provide you with expert advice & recommendations. There is a lot more to planning a honeymoon than most couples realize.
