Average Travel Manager Compensation Up 3.2% This Year

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.

"Most people do want to experience new things. There is a small percentage, maybe 10%-15%, who always want to do the same thing: Either return to the same all-inclusive or take the same cruise line to the same Caribbean islands."
