Holiday Travel for December 2018: It’s Going to Get Busy
A record-breaking 112.5 million Americans will travel during the December holiday season, a 4.4% increase over last year, according to AAA predictions. That's more than one-third of all Americans who will be traveling, and it's the highest number since AAA has been tracking holiday travel. For the more than 102 million people who are driving, global mobility analytics company INRIX estimates that travel times in the busiest US cities could be as much as four times longer than normal. Those cities include New York City, Washington, Atlanta, Los Angeles, Seattle and Chicago.
