    Hawaii travel

    Hawaii travel 14th May 18 at 2:04 PM
    Hi all

    My girlfriend and I are travelling to Hawaii for 2 weeks in June, and, given the current eruptions from Volcano Kilauea , we're wondering -- IF a larger eruption follows, and our flights are delayed / cancelled (both flights out there and return, and the internal flights between the islands) what sort of protection do we have, if any?

    We have travel insurance, but one of the points stipulated is the 'natural disaster/ act of God' clauses which states the insurer doesn't need to pay compensation (or anything for that matter).

    Just looking for guidance and support on this one- more so just to prepare ourselves if the worst should happen

    TA

    You are very unlikely to get much traffic on this sub-forum as nobody is really looking at it nowadays.

    You could contact the Board Guide and ask them to move it to the main forum as you are far more likely to get advice there.

    If you looked at the signature in the main sticky post above this sub forum, click on that name then click on the contact tab you can message MSE Archna to move your post.

    In truth, the only area out of bounds is the Hawaii Volcano National Park on the east side of the Big Island. The main resorts are over 100 miles away on the west coast around and to the north of Kona. None of the other islands is affected at all so don't worry, just sit back and look forward to it. Long haul flights are usually to Honolulu and operating normally, internal flights to everywhere are also operating but most airlines are allowing cancellation and transfers on request for flights to Hilo on the Big Island. If you don't have flights there, you have nothing to worry about, apart from the jet lag!

    From the above, it sounds like you might be fine on your trip. Hope you have a lovely time. I am planning a trip to Hawaii (Oahu and Kauai) in july, any hints and tips would be gratefully received. Thanks

    If not, your purpose in hijacking a thread in this forum seems puzzling. Esp when you already posted a thread in an appropriate forum.

    Pogofish. Not hijacking. Aiming for a conversation. The op does not state which islands they are going to, I would like to be part of this discussion as if the OP!!!8217;s trip is impacted by the volcano then mine might be too. If the op is happy to ask for advice about this then I!!!8217;m sure they!!!8217;d also be happy to share their experinces. I don!!!8217;t see anything wrong in my asking for advice from someone who will have recently been to the same place who has the same concerns.

    Yes I have posted in another part of the forum but that!!!8217;s about general hints and tips of saving money whilst travelling in Hawaii. This is specific to potential distruption caused by the volcano.

    This is not the place for a conversation - but your other thread is in the right place.

    That!!!8217;s like saying don!!!8217;t worry about money until you!!!8217;re in a lot of debt. Nothing wrong with a bit of planning and being proactive avoid or at least be prepared for disruption. If the volcano erupts again it could very easily impact travel plans. I agree that the op is probably currently in Hawaii and probably not on this site at the mo but they may be able to share their experiences once they get back.

    If they don!!!8217;t then no problem but if they do that!!!8217;s great.
