10 Tips To Survive An Unexpected Holiday Hurricane

As you pack the last items of your luggage, ready for your tropical vacation, nobody likes to think about the event of a natural disaster. The thought that a hurricane could ruin your perfect relaxing break in the sun should rightly be the last thing from your mind, but if youre heading to a region where such natural disasters are known to occur, it can never hurt to be prepared. Of course worldwide travel insurance can provide some peace of mind that youll be reimbursed for your medical fees or lost valuables, but in terms of survival, some hurricane advice is absolutely essential. For that reason, weve compiled a list of 10 things you can do to ensure your safe return to the UK.

So, if you hear of a warning, follow these 10 pieces of hurricane advice to ensure you stay safe in the event of disaster:

1. Listen to local media sources, to stay informed

Keep an eye on local news and an ear on local radio! Latest developments will be shared this way, and they will offer insights into when any hurricane is due to strike. If the local hurricane advice is to evacuate, youll hear it here first!

2. Talk to your tour or travel operator

Stay in touch with your travel or tour operator. They may be able to offer additional hurricane advice and, combined with local radio reports, will let you know if you need to leave the area immediately.

3. Make alternate return travel arrangements home

If a hurricane does hit the resort and/or country youre staying in, you can anticipate widespread damage. Airports are not above these hits, and it may take some time for them to reopen if they take some serious damage. It may be wise to make alternative travel arrangements to get back home after the incident, and rearrange home-based commitments if you have any. You could be here a while!

4. Stay inside, away from doors and windows

If a hurricane is due to hit, and you dont have time to evacuate the area as advised, then ensure you are indoors when it is due to strike. It is absolutely essential that you ensure you are far away from all doors and windows when it strikes.

5. Make a hurricane supply kit

If youre going to be confined to your hotel or apartment for the duration of the hurricane, make sure youre prepared. Think enough food and water to last 24-48 hours, batteries, flashlights and medication.

6. Contact the UK consulate

The UK consulate can provide assistance for UK citizens, but only if they know you are here! Make contact before and after the hurricane.

7. Make a list of emergency contact numbers

Yes, your mobile phone may store all the contact numbers you will need, but you cant guarantee your phone will have charge when you need to access them and it may be impossible to charge it if the power is out in the affected areas! Make a hard copy of all the telephone numbers you will need, so you can make contact with friends and relatives somehow after the hurricane.

8. Get all your documents together before you need to evacuate

You may need to evacuate at a moments notice. Get all your important documents (ID, passport, travel insurance certificate, driving license, etc.) together in one place so you have everything essential to hand if you have to leave quickly.

9. Secure the buildings openings against the hurricane

Tape, board over or shutter any openings to the building doors and windows alike. Ensure that any sliding glass doors are wedged to make sure they dont lift up from their tracks. This will minimize the chances of injury from broken glass.

10. Take your worldwide travel insurance certificate along with you

Take your worldwide travel insurance certificate with you when you travel (you did get travel insurance, right?) Not only will you need to produce the worldwide travel insurance certificate when making a claim, but if you require emergency treatment, the hospital will want a copy when you are first admitted otherwise you may be stuck with a huge bill you cannot afford!

Obviously, the chances of you being caught in an unexpected hurricane in the middle of your holiday are remote, but these tips can make a very real difference, and could save your life and keep you free of injury should a natural disaster occur.
