AAA expects heavier travel for holiday

(Continued)

Woodward, Okla. — RENTAL CARS STILL HEADING UP

But as gas prices drop, AAA said rental car rates are expected to jump this holiday.

"The average rate is pegged at $47 per day this Thanksgiving holiday, compared to $37 last year," Mai said. "We really don't know why the rise."

The only thing the experts can attribute it to is the continually-volatile market for car rentals.

"The rates that are paid can vary by the time of day and even the day of the week when reservations are made," he said.

AAA OFFERS TRAVEL ASSISTANCE

For anyone traveling this holiday season, AAA offers various forms of digital trip-planning assistance.

Non-members may access free AAA mobile applications, for both iPhones and Androids, to get gas prices or map a route. For members, AAA offers apps to receive roadside assistance and access nearby member discounts.
