MissTravel.com Releases “Top 10 Hurricane Season Hot Spots” Amid Peaceful Weather

Share Article

MissTravel.com, the world’s only travel-dating website, released its list of the “Top 10 Tropical Resort Steals”—a compilation of the most-popular tropical destinations that offered the best deals during what USA Today dubbed, a “Snoozer of a Hurricane Season.”

The onset of hurricane season should be viewed as an opportunity, not a detriment to travel.

Hurricane Season, or lack thereof, has currently been all speculation and no action (knock on wood). And according to the National Hurricane Center, only four tropical storms have formed and subsided since the onset of Hurricane Season in July.

In the past 50 years alone, weather activity has traditionally peaked on September 10th (NHC). Evidently, some budget-conscious travelers are using this weather lull to their advantage.

MissTravel.com, the world’s only destination-dating website with over 300,000 members, experienced a 71 percent increase in all non-domestic trips scheduled for August, specifically in the Caribbean. The site even released this year’s list of “Top 10 Hurricane Season Hot Spots,” according to the most booked destinations with the lowest risk of hurricanes.
