AAA Offers Tips to Be Safe and Minimize Property Damage
With Hurricane Florence gaining strength and taking aim at the East Coast, AAA is reminding Connecticut residents who may have travel plans - or property - in the storm’s path to take precautions with safety as priority one. The potential impact of the storm has already prompted Governors in Virginia, North Carolina and South Carolina to declare states of emergency. Mandatory evacuations have been ordered in some coastal towns and many airlines are waiving change fees for cities in the hurricane’s path.
“Even though Connecticut is not expected to be in the eye of the storm, it is still disrupting travel for people who live here and, of course, it’s also a cause of great concern for those who have a second home or property that could sustain serious damage”, says Suzanne Aresco, Director of AAA Travel. “AAA is helping our clients explore their options and change plans as necessary”.
AAA is encouraging anyone not working with a travel advisor to call their airline, hotel and/or tour company to inquire as to what changes can be made without penalty and also to review any travel insurance policy to understand coverage details.
AAA offers the following Travel and Home/Car Insurance tips in advance of the hurricane:
