Later this year, all Booking.com listings -- including
alternative accommodations -- will be available on Sabre.
Sabre on Wednesday said it signed an agreement with
Booking.com enabling agencies to access its listing via Sabre Content Services
for Lodging, a technology solution that integrates hotel content from multiple
sources into the GDS.
The solution will launch later this year and will be
available via Sabre APIs, Sabre Red Workspace, GetThere and TripCase.
Booking.com has over 28 million listings., including 5.4
million homes, apartments and unique accommodations.
Ripsy Bandourian, the OTA's senior director of partnerships
and business bookers, said the agreement with Sabre will help expand Booking.com's
reach with agencies.
"Adding the Booking.com portfolio to Sabre's lodging
offering will allow travel buyers to meet the growing demand for alternative
lodging options and deliver even more value to their travelers," said Traci
Mercer, senior vice president of lodging, ground and sea for Sabre Travel
