  • Advice For Cyclone Season In The South Pacific

    Filed Under: Blogging

Travelers heading to the South Pacific region should be aware of the risk of cyclones during the period of December through April, according to the U.S. Department of State. The threat of cyclones originating in the area could cause problems for your trip.

While most vacations in the South Pacific pass without any negative incident, you should monitor weather reports and take the appropriate action should a tropical cyclone hit the region. Make sure your trip is protected with trip cancellation insurance. Affected areas include Australia, Fiji, the Marshall Islands, Micronesia, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea, Samoa, the Solomon Islands, Tuvalu, and Vanuatu, as well as French Polynesia.

Make sure you have up-to-date travel insurance to cover a tropical cyclone if it hits your vacation while you are abroad. In the past, U.S. residents were unable to return home on their scheduled flights due to infrastructure damage and limited flight availability.

Take care in the aftermath of a tropical storm or cyclone. Risk of dangerous high tides and flooding occurs when cyclones hit. Check with the local authorities for advice on what to do following a tropical storm and pay attention to any weather warnings for the near future.
