Sabre enhances digital payment capability, offers improved security for air bookings

Sabre Corporation, together with partner Conferma, have announced the integration of the Sabre Virtual Payment solution for air tickets into the Sabre Red Workspace.

Currently used by more than 425,000 agents worldwide, the Sabre Red Workspace now features an enhanced digital payment capability that gives users the ability to generate virtual cards as part of the existing ticketing and payment processes. The new payment method will be listed alongside credits cards, cash or cheque options, providing flexibility with a seamless payment process for the agency and customer.

Through this enhancement, users also now have the ability to set credit limits, apply date restrictions and define merchant categories – a set of controls that help agents pay more efficiently while reducing the risk of fraud. Sabre’s Virtual Payment can be used at time of ticketing, refunding and exchanging, and it can be stored in customers’ preferences through the Sabre Profiles capability.

“For each air ticket, the traditional forms of payment challenge travel agents with high risk of fraud, exposing corporate accounts and requiring extra time for reconciliation. A more secure and efficient way to pay is now available for Sabre-connected agencies, and it is part of the core reservation flow in the Sabre Red Workspace and Sabre APIs,” said Neil Fyfe, vice president of Virtual Payments at Sabre. “In addition when using virtual payments within the GetThere booking tool, we provide incremental detailed reconciliation data available for expense management.”
