    The Corliss Group Luxury Travel Agency, 8 Tips to Ease Winter Travel Woes

    It's going to be a long journey home for many travelers this weekend. Blizzard conditions in the Northeast and winter weather across much of the United States mean a whole lot of waiting for people itching to be on the move.

    Flight, which tracks cancellations due to weather and mechanical problems, showed more than 2,000 flight cancellations for Friday. On Thursday, more than 2,600 U.S. flights were canceled.

    It may take airports 48 hours or more to clear the backlog caused by weather this severe, according to Rick Seaney, CEO of airfare tracker

    And with 1 to 2 feet of snow on the ground in parts of the Northeast, driving is not advised.

    Here are some tips to ease the trip home, but above all else, patience -- and caution -- will be key.

    Rebook your flight for free. Airlines rolled out their customary winter weather waivers this week, so most passengers traveling to, from or through affected areas can make one itinerary change without paying a change fee. Delta, American, US Airways, United, Southwest/AirTran and JetBlue have all posted weather policies on their websites.

    Act quickly. Rebook your itinerary as soon as possible. Other passengers are snapping up open seats as you mull over a new itinerary. Be sure that your airline has your e-mail address and phone number, Seaney advises. If you didn't provide this information when you purchased the ticket, go online and add it.

    Follow your airline and airport on social media. Many airlines and airports post the speediest updates to their Twitter feeds, so start following them now. Sign up for airline alerts to get flight updates e-mailed to your smartphone.

    If you're stranded, multitask. Get online, get on the phone and get in the ticketing line (if you're already at the airport). With thousands of flights delayed or canceled, competition will be fierce for seats when operations start humming again. Get airline apps for your phone and try to contact your airline on Twitter, Seaney suggests.

    Elite fliers should use their loyalty program hot lines and head to frequent flier lounges for better access to airline reps. "This might be the time to spring for a lounge day-pass just to gain access to these folks," Seaney wrote in an e-mail.

    Use the Next Flight app and type in your city pair to get the next flights for the major airlines, suggests Benet J. Wilson, Aviation Queen travel blogger. Then, call the airline on your cell phone and give them your preferred options.

    Charge your devices. Hopefully, you're not among those travelers stranded at the airport, where jockeying for electrical outlets is inevitable. Charge up before you head out, and keep a car charger and a power pack or a few battery chargers for your portable electronic devices handy.

    Check your flight, no matter where you're going. Think you don't have to worry about bad weather because you're flying from sunny California to sunny Florida? Not so fast.

    "Because airlines operate networks, a storm affects not only flights in its immediate location but even those in far-removed locations not affected by the storm," said Cynthia Barnhart, an MIT engineering professor who teaches airline schedule planning.
    Check your aircraft's journey on your airline website or with an app like Flight view.

    Don't be a jerk. "The airline representatives did not make it snow," Seaney reminds travelers. "We've heard many anecdotal stories over the years from airline representatives who tell us it's a lot easier to find a good flight for a pleasant passenger than for one who is screaming at you."

    Use common sense: Don't drive into a storm. It's treacherous out there. Monitor your local and regional forecasts, and don't drive if you don't have to.

    AAA advises motorists to check tire pressure and make sure car batteries, cooling systems and antifreeze levels are in order. Keep gas tanks close to full, the Automobile Association advises, so that you'll be able to run the engine for heat in case you get stranded.

    AAA suggests keeping the following items in your car: a shovel and a bag of sand, a snowbrush and ice scraper, jumper cables, a spare tire, windshield wiper fluid, a cell phone and car charger and blankets, gloves, hats and food, water and essential medication.

    The Corliss Group Luxury Travel Agency: Health and Beauty travel tips

    Quick Tips

    • Periodically wash your hands with soap and warm water, a cleansing wipe, or disinfecting gel.
    • Keep your hands away from your face as much as possible.
    • Drink bottled water and check the seal if water quality is in doubt.
    • If water quality is in doubt, use bottled when brushing your teeth.
    • Don't forget your sunscreen, lotion and lip balm.


    Visit your doctor a month before your trip. Any vaccinations should have time to work their magic and become effective enough to protect you when arriving at your destination. Also, any side effects from a vaccine is best handled way in advance of departure.
    Common medications can be difficult to find in another country. Pack disinfectants and over-the-counter medications. (Check if your store has a "travel section" where everything comes in small packages.) We recommend bringing the basics: something for pain, headache, motion sickness, and diarrhea. Don't forget anything for the kids if they're tagging along.

    Be sure to bring enough prescription medication for the length of your travels.

    Carry a list of all names and dosages of any medications. If an emergency occurs, rescuers will have some knowledge of your medical history. Have the list in an obvious place where someone may look, i.e. your wallet or medical alert tag.

    If you have any allergies or medical problems, be sure to wear a medical alert tag (bracelet, anklet, or necklace), or have an identification card that prominently displays your condition. Have the name and phone number of your doctor on the tag or card, if possible.

    Driving or Flying

    If you're flying (or on a long drive), be sure to stretch your legs and walk a bit. Blood clots can occur in anyone, regardless of health status. You may want to wear compression stockings if you have irregular circulation, are pregnant, or are completely healthy and just want the extra help.

    If you're pregnant and planning to fly, check with your doctor and the airline to be sure you can do so at this time. The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) recommends that the safest time to fly while pregnant is between weeks 18 and 24, and not to fly after the 36th week. Airlines have their own flight restrictions for pregnancies, which can vary according to whether you are flying domestically or internationally, and which airline you will be flying. (Some airlines won.t allow you to travel for 30 days before your due date.)
