Nearly 90% of Sabre Hotel RFP users choose to receive responses from qualified hotels not initially considered. That's a world of untapped revenue opportunities waiting for you.

Sabre Hotel RFP never charges hotels to respond to Direct Bids! Direct Bids are corporate sales leads sent directly from the travel buyer to the property through the product. In Sabre Hotel RFP, Direct Bids are easily identified as the white rows on the "Bids" tab. Hotels receive login credentials when invited to bid or they can Request a Free Hotel Login to view and respond to their Direct Bid opportunities.
Competitive Bids are pre-qualified corporate leads for new transient hotel business - they are clearly identified on your "Bids" tab as the green shaded rows. A subscription is required and allows the hotel to respond to an unlimited number of opportunities while the subscription is active. This unique service unlocks new opportunities for hotels of all sizes. As part of the Sabre portfolio of products, no other solution opens more doors to corporate sales leads than Sabre hotel RFP. In fact, properties that responded to Competitive Bids in 2012 converted over 21% of the leads they replied to.
Managing RFP responses is easy with Sabre Hotel RFP. Small, medium and large chains can benefit from a FREE view of all opportunities available at properties within a chain. However, a subscription to the Sabre Hotel RFP Chain Portal allows National Account Manager (NAM) at the chain level to view, manage, and respond to all direct travel buyer requests and view pre-qualified leads from a single login. Sabre Hotel RFP eliminates the need to maintain multiple logins to access individual property opportunities within the chain. Chain Portal subscribers can also receive additional benefit from subscribing to Competitive Bids - allowing them to both view and respond to pre-qualified corporate leads on behalf of the chain and individual properties they represent.
