Nearly Half of Americans Will Hit The Road for The December Holidays


Going somewhere? TripAdvisor announced the results of its December holiday travel survey. Of more than 1,300 U.S. respondents, 45% percent are planning to travel for the December holidays, up from 42% last year.

Of those taking trips, 63% will travel for Christmas, 31% for will do so for New Year’s and 4% for Hanukkah. And family seems to be the theme, accounting for 61% of those traveling, while 23% will visit friends.  And although driving is still the number one mode of transportation (48%), fewer travelers plan to be on the road than in 2011, which will probably mean some long lines at the airport as 46% plan to fly.
