How to Handle Holiday Travel Disruptions During Inclement Weather

7 months ago

The holidays often mean traveling to visit loved ones. With over 115 million Americans packing their bags this season, many will encounter unfavorable weather conditions that threaten delays and cancellations.

As storms pummel parts of the country, travelers must smartly navigate potential disruptions to ensure they arrive at their destinations in time for holiday festivities.

The first step when preparing for holiday travel is to closely follow weather reports in your area and along your route. This week, strong winds and flooding drenched the Northeast while California braces for heavy rains.

By keeping up-to-date on the forecast, you can better gauge risks, make backup plans if needed, and appropriately pack for the elements.

It also helps to follow your airline and airport for real-time conditions. Carriers often issue weather waivers when expecting storms, allowing travelers to adjust reservations without fees.
