Bogota, Colombia, Nov. 3, 2014 –Sabre Corporation and regional travel holding LosTiquetesmasBaratos.com have renewed their global technology agreement, providing consumers in Colombia, Mexico and the U.S. Latino market with real-time online access to the broadest and most competitively-priced leisure and corporate travel options. The OTA also aims at integrating new search tools and build new consumer-facing capabilities for multi-device shopping using Sabre’s APIs technology.
As one of the major online businesses in Colombia, LTMB taps into a wide range of technology services from Sabre, including its leading online fare search technology to provide the best travel deals. LTMB’s consumer friendly shopping platform, powered by Sabre, has rapidly become a first-stop for consumers searching for last-minute deals, fast and reliable bookings, web check-in and trusted payments options.
The unique combination of Sabre’s real-time travel data with its APIs for e-commerce platforms will also bring more personalized options to travellers. By adopting Sabre’s recently released APIs through Sabre Dev Studio (https://developer.sabre.com/), LTMB can offer intuitive navigation and provide search options in response to trip planning questions, such as, “What Caribbean destinations can I fly to for a week within my budget of USD500?” This new search option is designed to meet the evolving ways consumers want to shop for travel.
Jorge Restrepo, general manager for LTMB.com, said: “Sabre is a long-standing technology partner who has played an instrumental role in driving our leadership in the Colombian online travel space, further expanding our growth overseas.
