50.9 Million Traveling for Thanksgiving 2017

Planes, Trains & Automobiles Will Be in High Demand this Thanksgiving

Our good friends at AAA have projected a healthy 50.9 million Americans will travel for Thanksgiving this year.  Is that a big deal? Well, it would mean an 3.3 percent increase from 2016 and the highest number since 2005.

While most of the travel will take place in automobiles (best to leave during “off-hours”), there are some other interesting findings. For example, there are 1.48 million taking buses or cruises. That’s significant. Maybe it’s because daily rental car rates will spike to $70/day over the holiday weekend?

There is also news if you plan on staying in a hotel or resort.  AAA shared that their Three Diamond Rated hotel rates shoot up 14 percent to $176 p/night.
