SOUTHLAKE, Texas -- Outdoor Traveler Destinations has selected Sabre Hospitality Solutions for its online distribution and e-commerce solutions.


Launched earlier this year, Outdoor Traveler Destinations is a membership program designed exclusively for hoteliers to engage and associate with like-minded property owners while maintaining their distinct identities. With Sabre Hospitality Solutions they can now offer members a comprehensive set of marketing and distribution tools including: CRS technology, GDS/IDS distribution, integration of technology with other property systems, Internet marketing programs, online media and advertising and award-winning Website design.

Sabre Hospitality Solutions manages over 57 unique global distribution system (GDS) chain codes and its expertise and experience launching and promoting a brand via electronic channels stood out among the competition, according to the Outdoor Traveler Destination team. They were looking for a partner with the solutions and experience needed to launch its powerful new brand of authentic outdoor lodging experiences.

"Outdoor travel is one of the fastest growing segments within the leisure travel market so it was critical that we launched our brand with a distribution and marketing company that understands online merchandising and brand promotion across multiple channels," said Scott Boone, president for Outdoor Traveler Destinations. "Sabre Hospitality offers us a proven, end-to-end solution that helps us deliver a powerful brand to our members."

After conducting a thorough review of the marketplace, we are excited that Outdoor Traveler Destinations selected Sabre Hospitality Solutions as its full-service distribution and marketing provider," commented Stephen Fitzgerald, chief operating officer for Sabre Hospitality Solutions.
