AAA said that over 115 million people are traveling for Christmas and New Year’s. Over 115.2 million travelers are expected to hit the road and will drive 50 miles or more from their homes over the holiday travel period. There’s been a 2.2% increase this year compared to last year and the second-highest year-end travel forecast since 2000, AAA said. “This year-end holiday forecast, with an additional 2.5 million travelers compared to last year, mirrors what AAA Travel has been observing throughout 2023,” said Paula Twidale, the Senior Vice President of AAA Travel.
