Less than a month after a busy Thanksgiving travel period, Americans are again on the move. And like Thanksgiving, travel over the upcoming Christmas/New Year’s holiday is likely to show a increase compared to last year, reports AAA Northeast.
In fact, more than 103 million Americans – the most on record and a 1.7% increase – are expected to travel over the year-end holidays compared to last year. This increase comes despite one fewer travel day this holiday season. The year-end travel period runs from Friday, Dec. 23 — Monday, Jan. 2, 2017.
