First of all, it is necessary for you to read every document and policy given to you by your travel agent. This would inform you of rules and regulations involving bad weather during trips and other related circumstances. You should also do the same with your travel insurance so that you can know if you can get a refund should you have to cancel your flight due to a calamity.

Moreover, it is advisable to call your local travel agent so that he/she can help you get a refund for cancelling your flight due to a disaster. The agent can also address any other concern you may have. This way, you do not have to handle everything by yourself as you will have someone who is experienced to talk to the airline.

When you are already on your trip and a calamity hits, it is essential that you have all important documents with you such as your passport. Do not forget to have an electronic backup of your documents so that you can access them anytime. Another thing to do is find out your hotel's evacuation plan and emergency response procedure just in case you would need it. And do not stay in areas that can be very dangerous when disasters occur.
