Sabre, a global travel solution provider, has announced a new car shopping API. The goal of the API is to help travelers find the best rental car options. For its launch, Sabre has partnered with Fareportal. Fareport is a travel concierge technology company operating brands such as CheapOair and OneTravel.
"Fareportal is a great partner with a shared focus on delivering a next-generation travel shopping experience," Roshan Mendis, Sabre Chief Commercial Officer, commented in a press release. "As we work to develop new capabilities, their partnership and feedback helps us take our solutions to the next level."
Fareportal will play a critical role as Sabre brings the new API to market. The Fareportal integration will help move testing forward and bring full-featured solutions to customers. Fareportal benefits by bringing cutting edge technology to its current brands. Sabre and Fareportal have brought previous solutions together in partnership for new launches.
The API gives integration partners access to enhanced search capabilities including vehicle images, logos, hours of operation, latitude, and longitude. Further, end users can filter by a number of bags and seatbelts. To learn more, check out the API press release.
