The Evolving Role of Travel Managers in Optimizing Business Travel Spend

As businesses grapple with the complexities of post-pandemic travel and the gradual return to normalcy, the pivotal role of Travel Managers becomes increasingly evident. In addition to navigating the uncertainties brought about by the pandemic, Travel Managers must traverse a multitude of challenges, including managing permissions and approvals, ensuring traveler safety and awareness, renegotiating supplier contracts, and revising policies.

Role Of Travel Managers In Travel Program Innovation

To this end, BTN’s 39th annual Travel Manager Survey highlights the growing need for companies to recognize—and retain—their Travel Managers. 

According to the survey, business travel savings remain paramount in evaluating Travel Managers’ performance. Additionally, technology implementation has emerged as a key criterion, highlighting the need for proactive sourcing of tech solutions beyond traditional Travel Management Companies (TMCs).

At this crossroad, air price assurance solutions emerge as a critical tool for Travel Managers. By leveraging price assurance solutions, Travel Managers achieve significant cost savings, aligning with company-wide strategies for cost avoidance.
