Sometimes life gets in the way and you miss your flight — don’t panic. You might feel anxious and stressed out on what to do because, in some cases, time cannot be wasted. Follow these helpful tips on what to do if you are ever stuck in this sticky situation.


First, talk to your airline representative calmly. Yelling will not get you anywhere. If you know ahead of time you will not make the flight because of an accident or traffic jam on the way to the airport, call a customer service representative as soon as possible. The sooner you can talk to someone, the more time they will have to book you on the next available flight. Some airlines may charge you a hefty fee for switching flights while others can do so free. Scan through the airline’s policies while booking to know what services can be of help if you are ever in this situation.


Next, call your hotel if your trip leads to that point after your flight. If you now cannot make your reservation for the room let them know. Not showing up to a booked room can lead to unwanted charges. If you are able to make it to your destination by another means of transportation in a desperate situation, go for it. Try a train or bus that may get you quicker if the next flight isn’t until the next day. Depending on the airline and situation, you may be able to get a refund for your missed flight.
