Sabre has signed a long-term global partnership with OYO Hotels & Homes, enabling almost 900,000 travel agents globally to see listings of OYO properties. Maninder Gulati, global chief strategy officer for OYO, said the partnership will help hotel owners generate additional demand for the properties and widen their reach.

In addition to linking the chain’s portfolio to numerous distribution channels, the agreement also allows OYO to connect with major corporations and begin RFP contracting, leveraging major agency consortia to ultimately generate incremental revenue for the OYO brand. Frank Trampert, chief commercial officer, EMEA & APAC, for Sabre Hospitality Solutions, said the arrangement provides a new distribution model for OYO, increasing its exposure to global markets in addition to supporting travel agents as they aim to cater to their customers’ needs.
