Qualified Vendors Programme Details

Benefits

Approved vendors receive the following benefits:

Recognition

With our official "stamp of approval" you will increase your visibility and boost customer confidence in your products.

Reach

The Qualified Vendors program means that your product(s) will be highlighted on our website, giving you a broader reach to new sales prospects throughout the world.

Information

We will inform you of new product information and strategic direction. This information may help you update your products to fit the changing needs of the customer and the industry. Our many conferences throughout the year offer you a good avenue for pursuing this knowledge.

Vendor Eligibility

Eligible companies must offer travel-specific products and/or services that complement the Sabre® global distribution system, or Sabre Travel Network® products or tools. You must adhere to the standards of excellence expected by Sabre Travel Network customers and substantiate the following:

In some instances, we may require proof of financial solvency prior to acceptance in the program and/or to remain eligible for the program on an ongoing basis. Vendor's acceptance into this program is at the sole discretion of Sabre Travel Network.

Participation

Participation in the program requires that your products consistently prove to be high in quality and customer satisfaction. Additionally, there is a fee for industry activities geared toward selling and promoting your products and/or services to Sabre Travel Network agencies and/or sales team. You will receive invitations to our conferences and other sales activities that will help you achieve your sales/promotion goals and help fulfill this requirement. Please contact us to discuss this in more detail.

Evaluation

Our Customer Testimonials/Recommendation Forms will be used to evaluate both your entry and your continued participation in the program. New products released by your company will be subject to the same evaluation and quality standards.

Testing

At the discretion of Sabre Travel Network, vendor products may be subject to testing in our certification lab. The cost of testing and any applicable training will be the responsibility of the vendor as outlined on Schedule A of the Terms and Conditions. Prior to testing, Schedule A will be presented to vendor for signature and payment.
