2013 Corporate Travel Index: Per Deim Rates Are Out

The 2013 edition of the Corporate Travel Index, Business Travel News’ magazine which publishes per diem rates and averages for the top 200 cities around the world was released March 18.

The methodology of the Corporate Travel Index:

The Business Travel News Corporate Travel Index is based on actual prices paid in 2012 by corporate clients of BCD Travel, provided to Business Travel News by BCD’s Advito consulting arm, as well as research conducted by The BTN Group and New York-based consulting firm Mercer Inc.

U.S. Per Diems

Total U.S. per diems listed are compiled by adding the average hotel, car, and food costs listed on subsequent pages. Business Travel News calculated year-over-year percentage changes in relation to total per diems listed in the 2012 Corporate Travel Index, which was compiled in the same manner as this year’s data.
