Akbar Travels of India Selects Sabre’s First Lodging Solution

Sabre Corporation,  a leading software and technology provider that powers the global travel industry, recently announced an enhanced partnership with one of India’s largest travel companies, Akbar Travels of India, cementing a valued two-decade long relationship between the two firms as Akbar forges ahead with plans for domestic and overseas growth.

Akbar Travels is already a long-time user of Sabre solutions, having implemented Sabre’s APIs to drive operational efficiencies and the Sabre Automated Exchange solution to save costs and improve customer service.

Now, Akbar Travels, which has 150 branches across India, 36 offices in the Middle East, Malaysia, UK, Italy and the US, has selected Sabre’s Content Services for Lodging APIs to enable its agents to more easily shop, compare and book more than a million lodging options for clients.

 “Sabre has a strong presence in India through our valued travel partners, our own office branches, and our large-scale technology base in Bengaluru,” said Traci Mercer, senior vice president, global lodging, ground and sea, Sabre.

 “We are thrilled to strengthen our position in the Indian travel market even further through our enhanced and expanded relationship with Akbar Travels as well as supporting Akbar’s operations in the Middle East, Europe, Asia and the US. Akbar needed robust, intuitive and scalable solutions to provide its branches with one easy-to-navigate, real-time and full-view lodging content solution and interface to ensure that it is able to create highly-personalized offers for clients as it looks to aid the imminent recovery and future growth of travel within its own markets and beyond,” she added.
