A new BTN Europe report reveals American Express Global Business Travel as Europe’s top TMC, ahead of the Business Travel Show Europe.

A new report from BTN Europe has revealed the top travel management companies (TMCs) in Europe ahead of the 30th anniversary edition of Business Travel Show Europe, which opens today at ExCeL London.  

Europe’s Leading TMCs reveals that American Express Global Business Travel is – once again – the leading TMC in Europe. In second place is BCD Travel, with CWT – the competitor AMEX GBT is planning to buy – ranking in third place. 

 The annual list is now in its 28th year and grades the continent’s top 30 leading business travel agencies by gross sales, as well as the leading companies in the UKGermanyFranceSpain and Italy, plus Benelux and Nordic country listings appear for the first time this year. 

“Amex GBT not surprisingly maintained top spot again this year with estimated European sales of 13.3 billion euros in 2023 – well ahead of BCD Travel with sales of 5.64 billion euros and CWT (4.4 billion euros). The top five is rounded out by Navan Group (3.3 billion euros) and FCM Travel (2.8 billion euros),” said BTN Europe editor in chief Andy Hoskins. 

For the past few years, 2019 was the year that everyone referred to as an industry benchmark. But research carried out for BTN Europe’s Leading TMCs 2024 report suggests we may have finally stopped looking in the rearview mirror and that 2023 is the new standard. 

“Certainly, the numbers show that many TMCs across Europe have emerged from the shadow of the pandemic and posted figures that are comfortably ahead of the pre-Covid era. In some cases, this has happened more quickly than many would have believed possible – and there are various reasons for this that are explored within the report’s articles.”
