Airbnb for Business has announced three new partnerships with leading travel management companies - American Express Global Business Travel, BCD, and Carlson Wagonlit Travel. The deal is viewed by the company as a significant milestone for Airbnb’s business travel programme, which has seen growing momentum in the corporate travel space.
BCD Travel, a top provider of travel management services for businesses globally, today announced it has acquired Travelocity Business from its parent company, Travelocity. Widely known as “TBiz,” the Texas-based TMC ranks among the top 10 travel agencies in North America and, in recent years, has been one of the corporate travel industry’s fastest-growing agencies.
As business travel costs continue to rise in the Asia Pacific region, corporations are increasingly deploying tighter travel policies and are looking to corporate travel management companies (TMCs) to implement their travel policy standards as a means of better managing costs.
