We also recommend that vacationers have a travel insurance policy that provides for delays and cancellations.
Lloyd explains that travelers who fly through Europe will be protected, however this does not mean that they will be compensated.
“You have the option of taking an alternative flight with the airline to your destination or canceling your flight and requesting a full refund,” he explains.
“If the offered alternative flight is not the right time for you, the airline is legally required to book you on a flight comparable to them or an alternative airline. You should not be charged for this anymore.”
He adds that travel insurance will provide a financial refund for passengers who are stuck at the airport for more than 12 hours or up to the amount specified in the policy.
The Met Office also highlighted trains and roads as areas where transport disruptions are likely to be widespread.
Meteorological experts said: “Strong winds will be accompanied by heavy rain at times, leading to particularly poor driving conditions.”
Unfortunately, if any interruption in external transportation wreaks havoc on your journey to the airport, it appears that travelers would not receive compensation from their airline.
