Around 60% of the corporate travel professionals polled report to have only a general knowledge of credit card economics, while 22% claim minimal knowledge, and just a slim 17% profess to be an expert. As surcharging of credit card fees become a growing reality around the world, it’s important for travel professionals to have real understanding of the commercial dynamics behind credit card fees.

It is vital that corporate travel managers and TMC’s are as well.”

The Wire…from AirPlus is a monthly report on the pulse of the industry and its relevant topics. Results of this edition are based on a survey of 142 travel management professionals in North America and Europe in September 2009.
