Are you traveling this year or this week? Sometimes travel plans aren’t always as we planned. If you’re traveling over the next few days or weeks there’s important information to take into consideration, especially if you’re traveling to the east coast.
As hurricane Sandy threatens to make a touchdown on land, Monday night or in the morning on Tuesday, it’s important to look at your travel plans and see if they will be affected.
Thousands of flights have already been canceled from United to American Airlines and everything in between, if you were planning on flying check your airline first.
Even if your travel often, and your plans do not include going to the east coast your plans could be affected because of planes coming to and from the East Coast. The East coast is a touch down for most major airlines. Travel plans as far as Los Angeles, Seattle and Hong Kong could feel the effects of hurricane Sandy.
To avoid getting stuck in the storm and not getting stranded here are tips to help you in case your flight is canceled.
Check your flight before you even leave your home. Chances are it is delayed or moved back and if that’s the case you may not need to go to the airport yet. Stay home and stay comfortable until you further understand the gravity of your flights plan.
If you’re already at the airport when you hear that your flight has been canceled, not to worry, this is a time to reconnect with yourself and sit tight.
You can talk to customer service about rerouting you but chances are everyone else is doing the same thing. A better suggestion is to simply play out the odds and catch up on old phone calls, correspondence or get a good book and read.
If you feel stranded in a city that is far from home, you can check with your current airline about putting you up in a hotel, sometimes they’ll are able to do this, not always if it’s weather-related but you can make sure that you are checking all aspects to make sure you are in the know.
You can always use social media to reach out using Twitter or Facebook to reach out to your friends and family. They may have a network and know people who live in the city you’re stranded in.
If you have medical problems, it can make travel a little bit more confusing and sometimes difficult if you travel with dentures, for example the possibility of them coming out or even loosening while in route or are stuck in the layover could make the trip more frustrating and stressful.
Robert Caine, a denturist for dentures in Seaside Oregon suggests that you plan ahead before you travel. Bring all the necessary health items with you and pack in your travel size bag, in case your luggage gets stuck on an airplane in a different cit.
This will help your travel trip rind more smoothly
