Sabre signs Italian content deal

Italian travel agents using the Internet-based MySabre GDS booking platform can now book all travel products from Italian tour operator Alpitour. Sabre Connected agents can access these products through MySabre’s Local Operator, which connects to Easybook, Alpitour’s web-site specifically designed for travel agents.

Local Operator gives Italian agencies a single point of access to a significant range of bookable local content including tour operators, accommodation, ferries, and bus and coach operators.  All transactions are recorded and information can be down-loaded into an agency’s back-office management tool. All the local content in Local Operator can be accessed with just one sign-in routine.  Navigation is intuitive and the agent can quickly and easily shift from one operator’s product to another.

Roberto Grande, Sabre Travel Network’s country manager for Italy, said: “We are delighted to offer Sabre Connected agents in this country direct access to Alpitour’s Easybook.  This is part of our ongoing strategy to introduce a wide range of new bookable leisure products to the Sabre GDS and to increase local market content.”
