First-Of-Its-Kind, Online Trip Review Reaches Major Milestone; Three-Month-Old Internet Feature a Hit Among Travelers and Agents
FORT WORTH, Texas, June 15 /PRNewswire/ -- Sabre (NYSE: TSG) today announced that Online Trip Review has reached more than 11,000 requests per day. Online Trip Review is a new feature of the Sabre computer reservations system that allows travelers to access their travel itineraries from anywhere in the world 24 hours a day through the company's corporate Web site -- www.sabre.com. "I'm a frequent business traveler and I don't live in the same city as my travel agent, so I find Online Trip Review to be very convenient," said Bud Bivin, director of sales for Epicron, an Austin, Texas based software company and Online Trip Review user. "I like it, my itineraries print in an easy-to- read format." Just three months old, Online Trip Review is quickly becoming the tool of choice by travel agents and travelers for an up-to-date, easy-to-read itinerary. With Online Trip Review, consumers who book through any Sabre distribution channel -- more than 40,000 travel agencies worldwide; Travelocity.com, the company's online travel site; Sabre Web Reservations(SM), the travel agency online booking tool; or Sabre Business Travel Solutions, an online travel system for corporations -- can now review their travel arrangements on the Internet. "Online Trip Review saves time and effort. It is much better than faxing, which isn't always dependable," said Mary Jane Bennett of Enzor Travel in Nashville, Tenn. "Travelers like the fact that they can look at their itinerary on the Web because changes are immediate and they don't have to wait for an itinerary to be sent." The growing use of electronic ticketing is a good indication that travelers and the travel industry alike are comfortable with the technological advances and ease it provides. Keeping pace with the expanding adoption of technology, Online Trip Review offers a likely migration for tech-savvy travelers. This first-of-its-kind service aids travelers and provides added value to travel agents immediately. After a reservation is confirmed in the Sabre system, the itinerary is housed securely and can only be viewed by the traveler. To access the information, a traveler can simply log on to www.sabre.com, click the Online Trip Review button, then input their reservation number and last name to view air, car and hotel reservations. Online Trip Review also provides access to valuable travel-related information such as weather reports and detailed driving maps. "This milestone is important for Sabre because it illustrates consumer need for this service and thereby validates our product development strategy," said Sam Gilliland, senior vice president of product marketing for Sabre. "Sabre is the only computer reservations system to offer this type of service to travelers. By providing useful products for the traveler, we bring additional value to Sabre connected agents."
