Pukey kitties: when is it normal and when do we go to the vet?

We have two cats (female, about 2.5 years old) that started vomiting about 5-6 days ago. Before last week, we had maybe one or two pukes in the year and a half we had them. We aren't sure which cat is responsible for all of the puke, but we have seen both of them vomit today.
We have had 5 puddles of vomit since last Tuesday. The vomit is mostly undigested/partially digested dry food. The cats are acting normally otherwise-- still eating and drinking, litterbox looks normal. As I mentioned, both cats have vomited at least once.
We have read that cats will sometimes eat too quickly and puke up their dinner, and that we shouldn't worry if they are otherwise acting normally. BUT, our girls have never eaten too quickly before, and it seems odd that both would start vomiting at the same time. Is this normal enough that we should wait and see, or should we get them both to the vet? A vet visit will be difficult for work and travel reasons, but possible.
