What travel agents say about traveling as Irma continues westward

Posted: Updated:
PEORIA, Ill. (WEEK) -- -

Many travelers are concerned about Hurricane Irma's impact.

Experts say you should reach out to your travel agent, if you have one.

They can tell you about plans the airlines and travel destinations have in place.

An agent at Alexander Travel tells us anyone with Florida vacation plans is stuck with unpredictability.

"At this point the waivers have not  came out for people to just cancel,
 said Alexander Travel Leisure Sales Director Diane Van Dettum. "It's still a little early. We don't know what that exact path will be for Florida, but they have put some waivers out there for people to change their travel plans if need be."

As for those with trips planned to the Caribbean, Van Dettum says those have already been affected since Irma is closing in on that region.
