Booking.com Content to Be Integrated into Sabre Lodging Platform

by Richard D’Ambrosio

Helping further centralize and simplify access to hotel content, Sabre Corp. and Booking.com have signed an agreement to provide all of Booking.com’s 28 million listings, including “alternative lodging” products, into Sabre’s Content Services for Lodging platform.

Officially launching later in 2018, the new platform will be available via Sabre APIs as well as the Sabre Red Workspace, GetThere and TripCase. 

Sabre Content Services is being designed to be the one-stop lodging source through the Sabre GDS. The company believes the move will allow agents and corporations to more efficiently shop, sell and service millions of hotel options as active GDS bookings.

Booking.com content includes more than 5.4 million reported listings like homes, apartments and boutique B&Bs, and facilitates bookings for more than 1.5 million room nights every 24 hours to over 135,000 destinations around the world.
