Following a deal with Expedia Affiliate Network (EAN), Sabre has added 63,000 more hotels to its collection of GDS-bookable properties. Sabre Corporation is the leading technology provider to the global travel industry. Sabre’s software, data, mobile and distribution solutions are used by hundreds of airlines and thousands of hotel properties to manage critical operations, including passenger and guest reservations, revenue management, flight, network and crew management.
Because of the new integration with EAN, Sabre is adding more than 63,000 new hotel properties to its travel marketplace. Travel agencies will now have access to the EAN rates and availability through the Sabre GDS.
Shelly Terry, vice president of travel product solutions, Sabre Travel Network said that, travel agencies will have more hotel options to offer their customers. She also added that more hotels in the Sabre travel marketplace will have the ability to merchandise their products, property attributes and personalize offerings to travelers. These are just a few ways Sabre provides hoteliers products to differentiate themselves and that is a powerful tool for travel buyers.
Christian Gerron, vice president of sales for EAN brand commented that, Expedia Affiliate Network is excited to bring thousands of new properties across the globe to Sabre’s valued partner network. Expedia is continuing to grow hotel supply by thousands of hotels each month and the Sabre agent community will have the ability to deliver more solutions to their customers.
Agents can easily shop and book properties through the Sabre Red Workspace. The additional properties are a wide range of property types, including full-service hotels and resorts, B and Bs and small inns, airport hotels, boutique hotels, budget hotels, and serviced apartments. While the new hotel content covers all regions, many of the properties are in Europe, the Middle East and Asia, typically where hotel property content is known for being highly fragmented.
Marc Casto, president and CEO of Casto Travel, said that, the clients look up to them for solutions, not excuses. The addition of the EAN rates and availability in Sabre dramatically expands their abilities to meet the needs of their customers.
The additional rates and availability from EAN expands Sabre’s robust hotel content of more than 750,000 properties, through the combination of its travel marketplace and network of hotel aggregator partners. Agents will now be able to offer more options to travelers, increasing more business and commission opportunities.
