Although the end of this year’s hurricane season is fast approaching, there is still a chance a few of these dangerous ocean storms may pummel through coastal states with the potential to destroy a vacation. See below for a few ways to prepare yourself (and your trip) for a possible tropical storm.
Stay in touch with your airline. If your flight is scheduled to travel in or through the area of impact, you will usually be offered two options: re-book on a flight to the same destination, or receive a full refund even on a nonrefundable ticket. Turn on notifications from your airline to stay up to date with the latest schedule changes.
Clarify your hotel’s policies. Not all hotel chains will cancel and/or help you re-book in the case of inclement weather. Therefore, it’s best to contact the hotel in advance to clarify your rights as a guest and ensure you have adequate travel insurance.
Insure yourself. Speaking of travel insurance, make sure you’re squared away with a decent policy before you leave. Most basic policies cover “unforeseen” causes for cancellation, such as weather, so long as your booking took place before the storm was a foreseeable issue.
All Nippon Airways (ANA) is the largest airline in Japan. With flights from the United States to Japan and all of Asia, it's the perfect airline to book your next trip with.

Philadelphia, the City of Brotherly (and, now, Sisterly) Love, has been climbing the charts as a city to see for years — this year in particular. A few reasons? Constant innovation, world-class dining, personality to spare and a slew of fun events and locales.
IMAGINE SETTING SAIL IN AN EXOTIC, far-flung destination, just you and your family or group of friends aboard a private yacht. The sun warms the deck, a soft breeze dances off the water, and an über-attentive crew caters to your every whim while the personal chef whips up the finest of the local cuisine with all of your culinary preferences top of mind. All the while, the captain navigates the yacht into secluded coves; to pristine, seemingly undiscovered beaches; or even to the hottest spots along the coast for a night out on the town.
