Avoiding travel delays: expert advice from Staysure

As we head into the peak season for travel, many of us can’t fully relax until we are sat on the plane on our way to our destination. Travel delays can prove a stressful start to a holiday and no one wants to find themselves stuck at the airport after a cancelled flight, waiting for a plane to depart that is hours behind schedule or even missing their flight due to arriving too late.

In their latest blog, our partner Staysure offers expert advice on avoiding travel delays including:

Booking your flights at quieter times

Tracking your flight via the airline’s app

Keeping an eye on weather conditions at both your departure and destination airports

Planning your journey to the airport and allowing plenty of time for roadwork, road closures, public transport delays

They also offer advice on what to do if your flight is delayed or cancelled.

Finally, for peace of mind, they recommend buying travel insurance when you book your trip to make sure you are covered for cancellations. If you are a regular traveller, an annual policy ensures you are always covered for those last-minute getaways.
