And you thought you could get through January without hearing the words “epic blizzard,” “heavy snow” or “severe delays.” Well, we almost made it, but now it seems Winter Storm Juno is set to hit today through Wednesday, delivering possible blizzard conditions and more than two feet of snow. The weather warnings include a portion of the coastal Mid Atlantic, including Philadelphia, New Jersey, Boston, Providence, Rhode Island, and Portland, Maine. While we can’t make the big mess go away, we can offer some trusted travel tips to help you navigate any possible travel disruptions—and offer you 15% off hotels with promo code JUNO15.

1.  Your phone is your travel lifeline. Sign up for travel alerts to get the latest updates/information on your flight. And download apps that let youdo everything from book hotel rooms on the fly to check your current flight status.

2.  Check your rebooking window. Most major airlines waive their change and cancellation fees for travelers whose flights are affected by the weather. Know, however, that there is a rebooking window (varying by airline) for those who choose to change their flight to a future departure date without incurring a fee. For travelers booking via Orbitz, the Orbitz Team is available to assist, and if a winter storm affects where you’re traveling, the company will waive any Orbitz cancellation fees and help you rebook your flight, hotel, car or activity.

3.  Prepare to get stranded.  Pack any necessities you’ll need for a 24-hour period in your carry-on bag.  Cell phone charger, medications, glasses, etc. Preparingfor a delay will help make your time in the airport a lot easier.

4.  Pack a power cord. Most travelers have multiple devices when traveling. Electrical outlets in airports can be hard to find, so pack a power cord; once you find a place to plug-in you can charge all devices at one time.

5. Use that promo code we told you about. Use JUNO15 to book a room, relax and make the most of it. Room service!
