According to data from AAA, a record-breaking 115 million Americans will be traveling this holiday season, CNBC's Brian Sullivan said Tuesday. AAA Northeast media relations manager and spokesman Robert Sinclair was a guest on CNBC to talk about the travel season and has one major tip: leave early for your travels.
Drivers in the Northeast region, may want to add a three or four multiplier to their trip time, he said. If a typical road trip takes one hour to complete, expect it to take up to four hours this holiday season.
Americans are taking advantage of a combination of a strong economy and among the fewest vacation days in the industrialized world, Sinclair said.
