With the Hotel Rate Assured™ hotel certification program, you can show your commitment to the agency channel. The program assures Sabre ConnectedSM agents that they are receiving the same publicly available rates inside the GDS that can be found on travel websites. This helps establish a strong partnership between the company, travel agents and hoteliers. By giving agencies access to all content they need, we can generate more hotel bookings in this efficient, high-yield channel.
Sabre® Direct Connect (DCX) uses XML technology to provide connectivity to the Sabre GDS. Hoteliers will benefit from the new XML formatted data exchange by replacing EDIFACT messaging formats. DCX ensures travel agencies have accurate rates, instantaneous updates of hotel availability and a simplified shopping process. It also enables hotel marketers to have optimal control over their inventory.
