As we reviewed the salaries reported by Corporate Travel Agents, we do show an overall increase compared to the previous year with the average national salary up by 12%.
This is no surprise as we have been predicting a drop in qualified workers as the numbers reflect an overall increase in retirement from an aging workforce.
For leisure agents, you will notice that the overall salary is down by 7%.
This year’s responses reflected by leisure agents showed a dramatic increase of independent agents working under host agencies. These number appear to align with the most recent release of salary information reported by The Travel Institute.
We still have a great deal of data to sift through and properly sort. We cannot wait to share more information that's pertinent to the Travel Industry as we find it.
