Holiday travel is one of the most stressful times of the year.

If you plan on hitting the highway or airports any time soon, you may want to pack a bag of patience.

AAA is estimating a 2.2 percent increase of holiday travelers from last year alone.

That means almost 64 million Americans will be at least 50 miles from home.

In Virginia we're told the increase will be around two percent, which is almost 1.8 million Virginians alone.
