The venerable AAA says it’s time to “buckle-up” this Thanksgiving as they say over 53 million people will be traveling – up 13% from 2020. They say travel volume will be within 5% of pre-pandemic levels and up 80% over last year. They caution that as restrictions continue to lift and with growing consumer confidence, travelers need to be proactive when making their travel plans this holiday season.
“This Thanksgiving, travel will look a lot different than last year,” said Paula Twidale, senior vice president, AAA Travel. “Now that the borders are open and new health and safety guidelines are in place, travel is once again high on the list for Americans who are ready to reunite with their loved ones for the holiday.”
