Sabre plans to unveil “additional innovations” in the shopping and booking of ancillaries for cars later this year after renewing a contract with Hertz.
The Sabre global distribution system (GDS) claims to drive more than $2 billion in car rental revenue a year.
The renewed distribution deal for an unspecified time will see agents using the system continue to have access to the car hire firm’s inventory from more than 8,000 locations worldwide.
Sabre Travel Network supplier distribution senior vice president David Goss said: “Hertz is an important supplier in the Sabre GDS and we’re pleased to continue our long-term relationship with them.
“The Sabre GDS provides Hertz with multiple ways to increase revenues and serve its customers.”
The company said it provides suppliers a number of ways to increase their revenue including the ability to “quickly and easily” book ancillaries but declined to detail the new elements to be introduced.
