Sabre Partners with Various Content Sources to Enhance Listings on Its Lodging Solution
Sabre Corporation, a technology provider to the global travel industry, announced agreements with Bedsonline, TravelBound and the Expedia Affiliate Network (EAN) to make their content available in the new Sabre Content Services for Lodging, a solution that will integrate multiple sources of content to increase efficiencies and improve customer satisfaction.
Answering the industry demand for additional types of rate and inventory options, these agreements will establish a critical mass of new opportunities for GDS consumers and buyers. Bedsonline brings a portfolio of more than 170,000 properties in 120 countries, while TravelBound reaches customers in 190 countries and offers unique experiences from more than 50,000 hotels. EAN will provide access to more than 350,000 properties worldwide and offer more than 650,000 exclusive deals on accommodations.
Launching later this year, the first market release of Sabre Content Services for Lodging will deliver more than 900,000 property options from both the Sabre GDS and non-GDS sources such as aggregators, redistributors and agency-sourced hotel content. The new lodging solution will allow a more seamless shopping experience that will display the new content at the room and rate level, side-by-side, for more efficient comparison.
The new lodging solution will include the capabilities of Sabre APIs and will be incorporated into Sabre Red Workspace, GetThere and TripCase. The solution will not only drive more efficiency and revenue with increased lodging choice, but will also extend tools and enable improved optimization capabilities to better manage chain, property, and rate-level preferred content.
