Flight disruptions are a major hassle for travellers, no matter how experienced they you are. Flight cancellations and delays can throw off even the most well-planned trips. But don't worry! With a bit of know-how and planning, you can handle these situations like a pro.

Start by choosing your flights wisely. Look for direct routes and try to fly on less busy days, like Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Airlines with multiple flight options to your destination can also offer more flexibility if there are disruptions.
Booking your accommodation in advance is also crucial. If your flight gets cancelled or delayed, having a place to stay already sorted can save you a lot of stress.

Before you travel, do some research on alternative flight options and be familiar with partner airlines. This will make it easier to rebook your flight if you need to.

If your flight is disrupted, don't panic. Join the queue to speak with airline staff and consider calling their customer service hotline for help. Travel insurance providers may also assist with reimbursement but check with them before you do.
While you're waiting for things to get sorted, make the most of your time at the airport. Check out the dining options or relax in a lounge with Wi-Fi access.

Know your rights as a passenger. This will help you understand what compensation you might be entitled to from your airline if your flight is delayed or cancelled.

Consider travel insurance that covers unexpected expenses during flight disruptions. This can provide some peace of mind and may also help ease the financial burden.
