AAA spokesperson talks about travel impact on Orlando

By  | 

The recent events around Orlando made us wonder if there has been a travel impact.

Attractions like Walt Disney World and Universal Studios are near Orlando, making it a popular tourist destination.

Locally, there is a direct flight from the Roanoke-Blacksburg Regional Airport to Orlando.

"AAA as a general rule is not flooded rule with cancellations when something like this happens. People have become resilient and they will not be deterred,” Martha Meade of AAA said

Meade says they only see a lot of cancellations if travel restrictions are in place.

She says you should always make copies of your travel documents so your loved ones know your plans.

Travel insurance is always a good idea.

However, it does not cover fear.
