Sabre Corporation (NASDAQ: SABR), a leading technology provider to the global travel industry, today announced the implementation of its leading distribution technology for Movida Rent a Car, the latest travel supplier in Brazil to benefit from Sabre’s real-time connectivity to more than 425,000 agents worldwide.
The technology and digital commerce agreement between Sabre and Movida Rent a Car also makes the Sabre travel marketplace one of the leading B2B travel platforms with broadest offering of car rental suppliers covering destinations across Brazil. Movida will also benefit from unprecedented mobile reach to consumers through the TripCase app, powered by Sabre mobile technology. The app integrates and displays car pick-up and drop-off dates within all travel itineraries, viewable in mobile devices and smart watches.
“We are pleased to continue partnering with major industry suppliers in Brazil including Movida Rent a Car, which is known for providing high-end vehicles and a customized driving experience to connect business and leisure destinations,” said Luiz Ambar, vice president of Sabre in Brazil and southern Latin America. “Sabre has a consistent track record in developing innovative software solutions for agents to access a seamless shopping and booking platform, and for suppliers like Movida we have also integrated direct billing capabilities to meet our agency customers’ needs in Brazil.”
Agents around the world subscribed to Sabre can now offer personalized services on behalf of Movida including, GPS devices, child safety seats, and chauffeurs. While for travel agents in Brazil enrolled in Movida’s incentive program, this new and enhanced car rental offering also provides additional opportunities to earn commissions from each booking.
“We are confident Sabre’s technology and their base of global travel agencies represents a highly influential community to connect our company’s 19,000 vehicles to travelers seeking a personalized car service,” said Jamyl Jarrus, commercial director for Movida Rent a Car. “After the initial connectivity to the Sabre travel marketplace we got immediate bookings, providing us with a fast lead generation platform for our business.”
In addition to boosting bookings, Brazil’s Movida Rent a Car will see their entire fleet, pricing and full inventory listed across Sabre’s leading shopping platform for travel services, including, Sabre Red Workspace and Sabre Red Mobile in tablets for agents. Travel agents connected to Sabre will count on 24×7 access to Movida’s help desk for support on bookings made via global distribution systems.
