According to data from the American Automobile Association (AAA), nearly 51 million people will travel 50 miles or more this holiday weekend – the highest travel volume since 2005, and a 3.3% increase from last year. Those traveling this year represent 15% of the US population.
Estimates suggest that 89% of travelers will journey by car. AAA found car rentals average around $70 per day, which is 34% higher than last year.
Those flying to their destination, however, may have booked a cheaper Thanksgiving trip than usual. According to AAA, the average cost for round-trip flights was the lowest in five years.
