The holiday travel season begins today. And a trend of more people hitting the road for the holidays is continuing.
Travel service AAA is projecting 98.6 million Americans will be someplace else for at least part of the holidays, a record number.
"It’s up 4 percent compared to last year. It’s also the highest travel volume on record. And AAA’s data does date back 13 years," said AAA spokeswoman Diana Dibble.
AAA recorded increases in travel for Labor Day and Thanksgiving holidays, too.
