Business Headlines: Zipcar’s Big Move; Holiday Travel Up
That’s a big step to moving into Europe.
Zipcar already has a hold in the United Kingdom, but no Zipcars are yet operating on the continent itself.
The deal is expected to go through early next year and could be a step in that direction.
Closer to home, you might have a lot of company on the roads this season.
AAA is estimating 91.9 million Americans will travel at least 50 miles from home over the holidays.

Only 6-percent plan to fly.
AAA says this is a positive sign that the economy is coming back to life.
