“Sabre Content Services for Lodging” allows travel agents to more easily shop, compare and book millions of lodging options
Sabre Corporation, a leading technology provider to the global travel industry, has announced the release of the “Sabre Content Services for Lodging”, a new solution that aims to enhance the agency and corporate booking tools.
According to an announcement, “Sabre Content Services for Lodging” integrates traditional GDS content from hoteliers alongside content from Booking.com, Bedsonline, and Expedia Partner Solutions, making it easier for agents to find the perfect property and rate for their traveler.
Travel buyers can shop and book over 1 million property options from multiple sources in a single screen.
“Sabre Content Services for Lodging” also provides access to more options and a more consistent shopping experience to include the way content is displayed at the room and rate level. Sabre’s API-driven solution is expected to deliver more efficiency and revenue with increased lodging choice, as well as improved capabilities to better manage preferred content. Travel agencies have full flexibility to choose the aggregator content they would like to access.
“We looked at the pain points and needs of customers on both sides of the network – the ‘demand’ side including TMCs, leisure agencies and corporations and the ‘supply’ side including hoteliers and lodging aggregators,” said Traci Mercer, senior vice president of lodging, ground and sea for Sabre Travel Network.
“The solution that we’ve developed to this long-standing and complex challenge will revolutionize the way travel agents shop and book hotel content – making it easier and simpler for them to provide the best experience for travelers,” she added.
Sabre is also normalizing and structuring the shopping response, making it easier for agents to compare shop lodging options – something the industry has struggled with.
The new API capabilities will soon be incorporated across all Sabre points of sale including Sabre Red 360 and GetThere.
