Millions Expected to Travel Over the Holidays

Posted: Updated:

More than 90 million people are expected to travel more than 50 miles from their home for the Christmas and New Year's holidays.

Last year, AAA recorded that 93.3 million traveled for the end of the year holidays, a 1.6 percent increase from 2011.

The majority of travelers will reach their destination by car. AAA stresses planning ahead and being aware of weather and changing conditions when traveling by automobile. In fact it's estimated they'll assist one million motorists for Christmas and New Year's alone.

Those not taking to the road will most likely travel by air. AAA suggests packing light and using only a carry-on if possible. Being aware of acceptable liquids you can fly with and always following the TSA 311 rule will help save you time and struggles at security.

The TSA 311 rule is for your carry-on bag. You should only have three ounce liquids or gels, all in one quart size clear bag and only have one per passenger.  

Always check with your airline before traveling and stay connected as flights and weather conditions can change.
