Sabre announced the expansion of SafePoint, a travel risk management product, to include global travel restriction tracking. While the solution is not limited to a singular event, it provides information regarding the spread of COVID-19 and new variants as well as destination entry restrictions imposed by countries including masks, vaccinations, health documentation and quarantine requirements.
SafePoint monitors world events in near real-time, 24/7. It utilises hundreds of data sources for events and restrictions that may impact travel arrangements and/or traveler safety. It helps Sabre’s travel agencies and corporate customers make more informed decisions and enhance the safety of their travelers by alerting them to restrictions that may impact their itinerary. Travelers will then be able to use the information to take action at any stage of their trip.
“As travel rebounds, we believe a duty-of-care and crisis alerting solution is imperative to any travel business, especially in a world where travel advisories can change rapidly. SafePoint is designed to keep travelers and corporate travel managers apprised of critical events in a fast-moving world,” said Saunvit Pandya, senior director of Product Management, Sabre. “We are delighted to work with customers to provide them duty-of-care products to better service their travelers”.
“In the current travel landscape, having instant access to travel restriction information is critical to making the right travel-related decisions. Sabre’s SafePoint provides us timely information to help us better serve our customers. It is a trusted source of information from a trusted partner,” said Anna McGurk, Operations Director, Norad Travel UK.
