Agents are being given access to rail content from operators in the UK, the US, Scandinavia, Australia, Japan and China via Sabre.
The content will be available from March 30 through the ACP Rail application in the Sabre Red Workspace agency platform.
ACP Rail will allow agents to view schedules, book point-to-point rail journeys, rail passes and itineraries, and issue tickets.
Bookings are integrated into the passenger’s booking, and can be tracked, and reported in mid- and back-office applications.
The company claims to make it easy for agencies to book rail without needing licensing agreements with rail operators.
Sabre Travel Network EMEA senior vice president Harald Eisenaecher said: “Rail is increasingly popular for short distance travel around Europe for both corporate and leisure travellers.
“Our agreement with ACP provides agencies with far more rail options than before, and includes the ability to book rail on its own or combined with air, car and hotel.
“ACP Rail provides rail fares in key geographic locations around the world and the potential to earn commission from these operators will provide a valuable new revenue stream for leisure agencies and travel management companies.”
ACP marketing and business development vice president Denis Grenier said: “Sabre’s global distribution provides rail operators with instant reach to agents all over the world via the Sabre Red Workspace platform, while also providing agents with an international range of rail passes and train tickets.”
