The Points Guy founder Brian Kelly joins ‘Mornings with Maria’ to discuss the increase in holiday travel and provides tips for making it more efficient.
This year is expected to be the third-busiest year for holiday travel since 2000, according to AAA.
The organization, which started tracking the data in 2000, said that it estimates 112.7 million people will travel 50 miles or more away from home during the period starting on Dec. 23 and ending on Jan. 2.
The number, it said, marks an increase of 3.6 million people over last year – closing in on pre-pandemic numbers.
Nearly 102 million Americans will drive to holiday destinations, up 2 million from the prior year.
