You get what you pay for, and most travel industry business news is free. The Company Dime sells insight.
Our mission is quality journalism for those interested in business travel services, expense management practices and travel industry change. Our features, exclusives and analysis equip business travel professionals with vital info for top performance.
We think of The Company Dime as a sandbox in which to hone our journalistic skills. We believe in the effectiveness of the written word. Yay, brevity. We try to embrace humility and reject arrogance. We engage in professional development and try to be honest about our strengths and weaknesses. We love our readers. We prioritize fast customer service. Find our policies and ethics in the sections below. Here you can learn more about our editorial process.
In mid-2023, The Company Dime had over 4,000 paying subscribers from about 600 companies. The charts below show breakdowns of those two figures by role and category within our niche of corporate travel. Headlines and non-paywalled articles are also accessible to several thousand more contacts on LinkedIn via our individual feeds, company page and groups.
We frequently ask our readers where we should place our focus. In our 2023 reader survey, travel distribution and travel technology retained their positions as top areas of interest, each selected by four of five respondents as one of the five most interesting topics. Next came supplier stories, followed by content about traveler communications and engagement. Topping the long tail of topics were articles about negotiating, payment, data reporting, policy and sustainability.
Dear reader, We cannot thank you enough for your support. Serving this subscriber community offers us journalistic challenges on a daily basis.

Henceforth, all individual Monthly and Annual users…

We try not to talk about ourselves. This enterprise is about you readers. However, it’s Nov. 5 and that’s our birthday. Five years ago today, we published our first article and it made us no friends at the company it featured. That’s fine. Journalism should not be about being nice to executives to get access….

The Company Dime adheres to the Society of Professional Journalists’ Code of Ethics.
Particularly relevant in business-to-business journalism are bans on conflicts of interest, gifts including free travel, marketing or opinion that is not clearly labeled as such, and influence on coverage by special interests or advertisers. We may disclose below articles any business relationships, such as with professional associations, that we feel should be known to the reader.
We always aim to “acknowledge mistakes and correct them promptly and prominently.” Depending on how the updated information changes the reader’s understanding, we may note that an article has been updated at the top or bottom, and we may alert our audience through email, web alert and social channels. If you notice an error on our pages, a potential violation of the SPJ’s ethics, or any other material you find questionable, please let us know.
Among other policies, we do make room for quoting sources on the condition of anonymity. We feel our audience trusts that we reach people who are most qualified to speak to issues.
We do not permit subjects of our articles to read them in advance of publication.
This post published on our seventh birthday discusses how we work.
Company representatives should never assume The Company Dime will agree to media embargoes. If you’re interested in offering us information “under embargo,” please contact us before sending it. Short of an explicit agreement to hold it until a particular time, material sent to us will be considered for immediate coverage. Please read this if you’d like to learn more about our editorial process.
