Travel agents now have 63,000 more reasons to use the Sabre travel marketplace as their global distribution system (GDS) of choice, thanks to a participation agreement between Sabre Corporation and Expedia Affiliate Network (EAN).
With the new integration with EAN, Sabre is adding more than 63,000 new hotel properties to its travel marketplace and travel agencies now have access to EAN rates and availability through the Sabre GDS.
Agents can easily shop and book properties through the Sabre Red Workspace. The additional properties are a 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.
