History

Incorporated in 1946, World Travel Service is a privately-owned travel management travel company headquartered in Knoxville, Tennessee. World Travel has grown to become the 13th largest corporate travel agency in the U.S. (2011 Business Travel News) with over $250 million in annual sales. World Travel was one of the fastest growing mid-market corporate travel agencies in the US in 2011 adding $100 million in new sales. While our core business is corporate travel management we have a rapid-growing, award-winning group, meeting and incentive travel division called Liaisons Meetings & Incentives with primary offices in Chattanooga and Knoxville. Over the last ten years, World Travel has built a diverse portfolio of nationally recognized organizations as clients.

In 2004, World Travel became a preferred agency-partner with Concur and currently supports over 300 Concur Travel clients as both a fulfillment agency (CT&E) and stand-alone reselling Concur partner.

In 2005, World Travel Service made a strategic decision to align our operation with the third largest travel management company in the world, BCD Travel.  By affiliating with BCD, World Travel can focus our resources in the U.S. while partnering with a world class global network of locations.

In 2012, we celebrated 24 consecutive years of growth and profitability in a very competitive industry.
