Travel Manager Salaries ShrinkTravel Manager Salaries Shrink

The average travel manager salary has decreased 15.8 percent since last year's BTN Salary Survey. Even with lower salaries, general satisfaction with pay is about the same as last year's survey. Plus, twice as many respondents this year said they were "very well recognized" by their companies. So what gives? The profile of the average travel manager is changing as younger professionals fill the ranks and small and midsize enterprises become more active in travel management.
