Apr 3, 2017

Travel agents subscribed to Sabre around the world will now be able to instantly book EAN rates and availabilities and can select from more than 87,000 Expedia, Inc properties worldwide, an enhanced offering from an initial 63,000 properties.

“The level of interest we’ve experienced in the trial phase has confirmed there’s real demand for our properties through Sabre, and we’re delighted to now bring that content fully online for all agents,” says Christian Gerron, Vice President of Sales for EAN. “We’re making it as easy for agents to book Expedia properties as those of any hotel chain or other supplier.”

“Our strategic collaboration with EAN aims to connect our global travel agency network with their leading global brand and full breadth of properties, bringing to agents an unparalleled level of choice to meet travelers’ accommodation preferences,” says Traci Mercer, senior vice president of Lodging, Ground & Sea for Sabre Travel Network. “The recent integration with EAN has empowered the way agents have access to rates and availability while providing hotels with the ability to merchandise their products, property attributes and personalize offerings”.

The expansion of Expedia, Inc content through the Sabre Travel Network includes full-service hotels and resorts, B&Bs and small inns, airport hotels, boutique hotels, budget hotels and serviced apartments. While the new hotel content covers all regions, many properties are in Europe, the Middle East and Asia.
