UK: OYO has connected its first group of UK hotels to Sabre’s SynXis Central Reservations System following a global partnership with Sabre Corporation.
More than 80 OYO hotels in the UK are now connected to all major global distribution systems (GDS) through Sabre. The properties are available to book by corporates, travel management companies, and almost 9000,000 travel agents and tour operators globally.
Sabre’s SynXis Central Reservations optimises global distribution channels and delivers rates and inventory to all these systems and online travel agencies (OTAs) through direct connection and switch partners.
The selected properties were chosen based on the appeal to individuals as well as groups travelling for leisure and business purposes. Locations include cities such as London, Newcastle, Manchester, Glasgow and Liverpool; coastal resorts including Brighton, Newquay, the Isle of Wight and Bournemouth; destination cities such as Cambridge and Bath; and rural locations including Loch Ness and the Cairngorms in Scotland.
Further UK OYO hotels will be made available to book via Sabre’s SynXis platform as the portfolio continues to grow and hotels reopen from lockdown.
“We are delighted that a wide range of OYO’s UK hotels are now bookable via Sabre’s SynXis CRS, making it easier for international and domestic corporates, travel agents and travel management companies, among others, to book our affordable accommodation around the UK,” said Rishabh Gupta, head of OYO Europe. “Many of our properties have immediate availability for key workers and business travellers, as permitted under current lockdown measures; and we also look forward to securing more group and leisure bookings through the trade as hospitality begins to reopen from May 2021.”
“OYO’s new partnership with Sabre will drive a new distribution strategy in the UK, which will support OYO’s asset partners and wider business goals,” said Frank Trampert, Sabre Hospitality Solutions SVP and global managing director of commercial. “Our innovative hospitality technology solutions and enhanced connectivity will open up increased revenue opportunities for OYO hotel owners, allowing them to significantly broaden their reach, while giving travel agents access to a more diverse range of hotel products and ancillaries. We look forward to working closely with OYO as it benefits from the SynXis platform’s distribution and retailing solutions. As it increases its hotel inventory, this will help deliver new opportunities, grow geographic reach and increase bookings over the coming years as we see the recovery of UK and international travel.”
