5 Hurricane Sandy Strategies the Airlines Won't Tell You

Stay with friends and family if possible. If it's not, remember that airport hotels fill up quickly. But you may have better luck finding a room in the city than at the airport. To get the best possible deals on same day bookings, use apps like HotelTonight to find same-day, unsold hotel inventory near you. Several other similar apps have recently emerged and are worth checking out – Travelocity's LastMinute.com Hotel booking app and Hotels by Orbitz.

What About Flights Set to Leave Wednesday, Oct. 31 and Later?

Airlines are expecting to resume normal operations on Wednesday. Flight cancellations are non-existent right now for Wednesday and later. Travelers should plan to fly as usual. But show up to the airport early because the airline will be looking to give away seats to stranded passengers. It's important, however, to keep checking your flight status on the carrier's site as the storm develops.
