Sabre has signed a long-term agreement with hotel aggregator Destinations of the World that should open up accommodations for travelers to emerging markets in Latin America, Asia, the Middle East and Africa.
The properties are listed in TotalTrip, Sabre's e-commerce hotel platform used by agents in Latin America to shop, book and pre-pay for hotels and travel extras.
The agreement lets TotalTrip offer travel agents direct access to 80,000 properties around the world, according to a news release.
"As outbound travel increases across Latin America, we have identified a greater demand for quality properties and particularly accommodation services in exotic destinations," Roberto Rosales Santiago, general manager for TotalTrip, a Sabre Travel Network brand, said in a statement.
DOTW connects to 44 international hotel chains and more than 100 brands, enabling capabilities such as Best Available Rate and last room availability.
"We're very pleased with the opportunity to extend the reach of our hotel content to TotalTrip and the Sabre marketplace," said Keith Fernandez, founder and CEO for DOTW.
Sabre's online e-commerce platform is powered by Travelocity and recent deals with Tourico Holidays, HotelBeds and GTA, according to the release.
TotalTrip is available in English, Spanish and Portuguese to all travel agents connected to the Sabre marketplace in Latin America. It supports multiple forms of payment across the region.
More than $100 billion of travel is purchased annually through Sabre Travel Network, a part of Sabre Holdings.
DOTW, founded in 2008, is a global travel industry wholesaler with offices in 16 countries.
