Air Shopping Rules Manager

 

Air Shopping Rules Manager brings a new level of usability to our best-in-class low fare search product Bargain Finder Max. The GUI based Rule Manager will allow users to define rules that may be used in BFM requests to personalize the response without the need to specify a long string of attributes. A wide range of user-specified criteria can be applied to the search by using the new "Persona" parameter in the family of Bargain Finder Max search queries. For a comprehensive explanation of the product and a list of search criteria which can be included in a traveler persona, refer to the User's Guide document linked at the bottom of the page.

Note: The Air Shopping Rules Manager currently applies only to Bargain Finder Max in version 4.2.0 or higher. To activate Bargain Finder Max, please contact your Sabre Account Representative for assistance.

The samples below will show how the Rules can be used in a Bargain Finder Max entry using the new <TravelerPersonaName> attribute.
