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.

Planning travel during hurricane season and the ability to help my client’s is what a professional travel specialist does. I will be your advocate, and someone you can turn to in case of an emergency.

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.

What are your travel memories worth?

What price are your travel memories worth? You can’t put a price tag on a great experience and cherished memories. A travel specialist provides you with more value and a personalized travel package just for you.

If you are shopping on price alone; how bad does a cheap trip have to be for it not to have been worth taking?

There are too many stories of the ‘great’ online travel deals, with a horrible ending! You book what appears to be the perfect resort, only to arrive and it is nothing like it was described to be. Everything you see on the internet is true, right?

I have personally visited the destinations and resorts that I recommend; I go, so you will know. Each destination and resort offer something different, and are not a “one size fits all.”

What is on your wish list? Are you in search or adventure? Looking for the most romantic spot? Want to go off the beaten path?

As your travel specialist, I will listen to you and make professional recommendations based on the experience you want and personalize your travel package.

Let’s work together to create your cherished travel memories.

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.
