The Synchronize Rail Reservation (RailPNRSynchRQ) service allows synchronization and import of vendor PNRs into Sabre PNR.

Service Action Code

The request synchronizes content in the Sabre PNR with the vendor PNR.

The service can be also used to import a Vendor PNR into a new Sabre PNR.

It is often used after updating the already existing booking, after ticketing, immediate cancellations or any after sales operations. This Web service can be called at any time to ensure that both PNRs are synchronized.

If the operation is successfully completed, the PNR in the Sabre host system and in the AAA is modified, the Sabre session is closed, and the service ends the transaction in the AAA and host. The Success element is also returned, otherwise an error is returned with the reason for failure.

For more details please refer to Resources.

NOTE: Consuming this webservice and its content requires special permission. Before requesting access please make sure you have all the necessary agreements in place with the rail vendor(s) you would like to sell using Sabre Webservices. For more information on accessing Sabre Rail content and rail supplier contacts please visit the respective product page on Agency eServices.
