decades

WILLIAMSVILLE, N.Y. (WIVB) -- Thanksgiving is just a few days away and many New Yorkers are preparing their bags and booking their tickets to travel during the holidays.

AAA predicts a 1.5% increase in holiday travel since last year, which means close to 55 million travelers will travel 50 miles or more this next week. They also say it could be the third-busiest Thanksgiving travel since 2000.

"Majority of people are traveling by car," said Elizabeth Carey, director of public relations at AAA. "The air travel will be up so we know that the airports will be busy, but the road trips always reign supreme, because it's the most economical way to travel, especially when you're talking about a large family."
