Travel Disruption – Hurricane Irma

Posted on by Thomas Carroll

As Hurricane Irma ravages across the Caribbean and approaches Florida, British holidaymakers are facing major disruption to their travel plans.

The category five hurricane is the most powerful Atlantic Ocean storm in recorded history, bringing with it sustained winds of 185mph.

UK travel firms and airlines operating to affected destinations such as Antigua, St Kitts, Miami, Fort Lauderdale, Tampa, or Orlando have been offering advice to customers whose flights have been affected. The British travel association ABTA has advised anyone on a package holiday in the Caribbean or Florida to keep in close contact with their travel provider, to monitor news reports and follow the advice of the local authorities.

The UK Foreign Office has advised Britons in the hurricane’s path to monitor its website and follow any advice issued by local officials as the storm progresses through the region.

If your travel plans are disrupted or cancelled please refer to your policy schedule and documents for details of cover and emergency helplines.
