Popular Employer Salaries for Corporate Travel Consultant


Although BCD Travels offers the highest salaries (median pay is $47K), survey participants reported a rather limited pay range of $36K to $56K.

While select American Express Co. (AMEX) employees may bring in up to $57K, a median salary of only $41K — the lowest in the field — suggests a serious lag in the earnings department.


Corporate Travel Consultants note just a narrow range of job skills. Those who have experience with Travel Planning, Customer Service, and Sabre can expect to be compensated well for these skills. Skills that are correlated to lower pay, on the other hand, include Sabre. Customer Service and Travel Planning are also commonly seen together.

Pay by Experience Level for Corporate Travel Consultant

Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.


Experience does not seem to be a strong driver of pay increase in this role. The average worker who claims fewer than five years of experience earns around $36K. In contrast, however, individuals who report five to 10 years in this occupation see a much larger median of $42K. Corporate Travel Consultants see a median salary of $43K after reaching one to two decades on the job. Survey participants who have spent more than 20 years on the job report a predictably higher median income of $45K, demonstrating that compensation is roughly commensurate with experience in the end.
