Cancelled Flights Due to Unforeseen Issues
With the recent events in Paris, many people visiting or there on vacation weren't sure what to do first or how to get back to the US. Check out these tips from a fellow traveler who was there.
Always have your airline phone number in your phone. Put your current flight information there as well. Then, contact the airline as soon as possible to rebook your flight. In times of a situation like Paris, airlines are aware and will usually do what they can to help.
If you have a relative or friend in the US, call them to see if they can get through to the airline quicker than you can.
Keep your phone charged.
When you need to get to the airport, get there much earlier than normal. There will be lines of people.
If you've registered with the State Department, STEP, you will have access to the local embassy. This helps both you and your family or friends in the US.
Call your phone carrier and request temporary international cell service.
