More than 55 million travelers are making plans to kick off the holiday season with a trip of 50 miles or more away from home this Thanksgiving. This will be the second-highest Thanksgiving travel volume since AAA began tracking in 2000, trailing only the record set in 2005.
AAA and Budweiser urge everyone to plan ahead if they are celebrating Halloween with alcohol. That means choosing a Designated Driver, staying where they are celebrating, or arranging for another form of safe transportation.
As consumers make travel plans for 2020, AAA is reminding them about another consideration: as of Oct. 1, 2020, they will likely need to present a different form of identification to board a domestic flight.
