According to AAA’s year-end travel forecast, Americans are making up for last year’s canceled getaways and get-togethers by traveling this year. More than 109 million people (+34% or +27.7 million people from 2020) will travel 50 miles or more as they hit the road, board airplanes or take other transportation out of town between December 23 and January 2. This bounce back will bring this year’s total travel numbers to 92% of 2019 levels and airline travel numbers to 184% of 2020’s.
