by Richard D'Ambrosio

The average salary for travel and meeting managers increased 3.2% from last year, to $118,479, according to Business Travel News’ 2016 Travel Manager Salary Survey.

Not surprisingly, the bigger the budget, the higher the rewards. Total compensation for travel managers at companies with air volume of more than $20 million increased 8.7%. Also, earning travel manager certification increased the likelihood of a higher raise, of 5.3%.

Total salary includes salary, bonuses and incentives.

Additionally, 21% of travel managers reported feeling well recognized for their contributions to their company. BTN fielded the survey in April and May of this year.
