What to do if your transport is cancelled by bad weather and how to make Grangemouth car accident claims
If you are travelling on a certain day and there is bad weather then you may want to adjust your schedule so that you are able to get around the difficulties of travelling when the roads are difficult to move around on, or have less visibility. If you are driving you need to be very careful about your safety and the safety of your passengers, but there are also things to bear in mind if you are getting public transport.
If your method of transport is cancelled because of bad weather, here are some of the things that you can do about it, so that your whole journey isn’t ruined.
- Speak to the company direct. Instead of trying to find out what is going on via rumours and gossip, find out the phone number for the company that provides your travel and call them, asking exactly what is going on and when you can expect to get moving. The company will be able to then tell you directly what they expect to happen.
- Wait for alternative transport. Any travel company will rarely leave you unable to travel and not provide another option. Sometimes you may be offered a hotel until the weather gets better, or an alternative method of transport, travelling later to avoid the worst of the weather.
- Stay warm and dry. If you are forced to wait a long time to get on another form of transport, the best thing you can do for yourself is to stay warm and dry as much as possible. Find a cafe where you can get a hot drink, or go back home.
- Stay at home. If you are able to wait and travel on another day, go back home and see out the bad weather there. This is much safer than trying to travel anyway.
