Monaker Group (MKGI) Set to Capitalize on This Year’s Thanksgiving Celebrations

This Thanksgiving, AAA, North America’s largest motoring and leisure travel organization, is expecting over one million more Americans to travel. According to the company’s 2016 Thanksgiving Holiday Travel Forecast, there will be more than 48.7 million travelers, marking the highest Thanksgiving holiday travel volume since 2007.

Travel has gone up 1.9% this year alone, leading to a 29% increase of travelers during Thanksgiving over the past eight years. According to the report and its attached infographic, 89.4% of people will be traveling by car, a 12.5% increase from the 2001 to 2015 average. In addition, air travel has risen 10% above the 2010 post-recession rebound year, and other modes of travel are also expected to increase by just under 1%.

But why are people suddenly choosing to splash their cash this Thanksgiving? The answer is simple: steady economic growth and low gas prices. According to the Albany Herald (, AAA officials estimate that low gas prices have saved drivers a huge $28 billion this calendar year alone. Forecasts also show an increase in consumer spending of 4.2%, with a rise in personal income of 3.4% and a 2.3% increase in disposable income.
