Are you traveling to see friends and family for the holidays? If so, you can expect a lot of company.

AAA says nearly 95 million people are expected to head out, traveling 50 miles or more from home this holiday season, with most of them hitting the roads. That's a new record according to AAA's year-end holidays travel forecast.

Experts say air travel is expected to decline slightly with about five and a half million people taking to the skies. 

AAA considers the holiday travel season to be between December 21 and January 1.
