Planning a vacation during hurricane season
Most families get one to two weeks each year for vacation and it can be devastating if bad weather hits during your limited time off.
June through September, when the kids are out of school, are popular months for vacations. However, those months overlap with hurricane season from June to November, the time of year when hurricanes are most likely to form.
With that in mind, it’s essential to have travel, medical and trip cancelation insurance. From trip cancelation coverage and missed connection coverage to emergency medical and dental coverage, AAA has you covered. Contact your trusted AAA agent to choose the best option for you and your family. There are single trip coverage options and annual options with a variety of coverage for each one.
This year’s hurricane forecast calls for a near-average number of named stormed: about 12 this season. It’s too early to tell where those storms may hit. But don’t let the threat of bad weather stop you from booking that dream vacation with a AAA travel agent.
The Caribbean islands outside of the hurricane belt are: Barbados, Grenada and Trinidad and Tobago. Also outside the belt are the southern most islands off the coast of Venezuela: Bonaire, Curacao, Aruba and Isla de Providencia.
If you’ve always wanted to go from a cruise, ships offer discounts during the peak of hurricane season between mid-July and October. And it’s safe because cruise ships monitor storms and paths constantly for changing weather patterns. Your itinerary may change, but the likelihood of getting caught in a storm is slim to none. The most important thing to do is to purchase travel insurance.
If plans include long car trips, AAA should be part of your vacation. With more 100 years experience in car care, AAA Car Care offers locations all over the U.S. and an experienced Certified Master Technician at every location.
