A record 6.1 million Floridians plan to travel more than 50 miles during the holidays this year.
The Christmas travel period began Saturday and runs through New Year’s Day.
Five and a half million Floridians will be driving, an increase of 200,000 from last year.
Air travel is also expected to be up nearly 5 percent.
It will cost more to get to your destination this year, with gas prices up about 20 cents per gallon from 2018 and car rental rates at their highest levels in a decade.
Still, travelers won’t be discouraged.
