If you’re heading out the door Wednesday morning to get an early start on your Thanksgiving holiday, be sure to give yourself as much time as possible.

Wednesday is expected to be the second busiest travel day this holiday week.

Around 48.5 million Americans are expected to hit the road this year.

That’s up about 5 percent.

It won’t be much easier in the skies as airlines are expecting 2.5 million flyers a day.

Officials say Sunday could set a record of more than 3 million passengers going through TSA checkpoints.

Sunday is expected to be the busiest travel day for the Thanksgiving holiday.
