Travel Rebound Expected for Thanksgiving Holiday

WASHINGTON (AP) - More Americans are expected to head out on the highway this Thanksgiving.

AAA President Bob Darbelnet says 42 million will be traveling to visit family and friends over the holiday. That's up more than 11% from last year. The rebound follows a two-year slowdown during the recession.

Darbelnet says 94% of holiday travelers will go by car, 4% by air and the remaining 2% by rail, bus or boat.

The travel club's outlook indicates they'll travel an average of 800 miles and spend about $500 -- same as last year.
