Sabre expands hotel choices with Expedia Affiliate Network

Because of a new integration with Expedia Affiliate Network, 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.

"Travel agencies will have more hotel options to offer their customers," said Shelly Terry, vice president of travel product solutions, Sabre Travel Network. "Additionally, 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."

Agents can 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.
