This guide walks through how to build a trip itinerary using the Umapped Trip Publisher in five easy steps for a Sabre User. 


Before using the Umapped Trip Publisher, we suggest reviewing the Trip Publisher 101 information found here so you have all the information needed to get started. 


Tip! Bookmark the link trip.umapped.com to quickly access the Trip Publisher login page.


After reviewing Trip Publisher 101, add a new trip from your Umapped dashboard to get started.



Create your trip by following these steps:


A) Step 1: Trip Info

B) Step 2: Itinerary

C) Step 3: Documents

D) Step 4: Preview

E) Step 5: Publish

F) Traveler Interface


A) Step 1: Trip Info


Start creating your trip by entering basic information under “1. Trip Info”.


1. Add a Trip Name

2. Add Travel Dates

3. Add a Cover Photo



1. Add a Trip Name:  Clients will see the trip name as the title of their trip. This name is included in the emails they receive and is visible on all three formats of the trip. 


2. Add Travel dates: Select when the trip will begin and end. Next, select Save Trip to create the trip. 


3. Add a Cover Photo: After saving the trip name and dates, you have the option of adding a cover photo. This is the main visual on all three formats of the trip. We strongly recommend adding one. Click on the grey photo thumbnail to add a photo. Search for a photo in the image library (powered by Wikimedia,) add a photo directly from a website, or select a photo from your computer. Please see here for instructions on adding photos. Select Save Trip to continue building your trip.




Now you are ready for Step 2. Itinerary where you will create the day-by-day itinerary. 



B) Step 2: Itinerary


All bookings, reservations and travel information are consolidated into the day-by-day itinerary for travelers. 


In this step:

1. Import from Sabre

2. Add additional Bookings (not in Sabre)

3. Add Content


1. Import from Sabre

There are two ways to import from Sabre:


A. PNR Import (read more here)

B. Sabre Live (read more here)

 

Not sure which one is right for you? Read here to compare the two options. The most important difference about these two options is that Sabre Live is a direct connection to the Sabre GDS, while the PNR Import is NOT. Changes are automatically updated in your Umapped trip when using Sabre Live, but not when using PNR Import. 


A. PNR Import


1. From Step 2. Itinerary, select Import Bookings and choose Import from GDS from the drop-down menu.


2. Enter the Record Locator and the Last Name associated with the reservation.

 

3. Select Sabre from the Booking System drop-down menu.

 

4. Click Import. All bookings and reservations will be added to your trip. 


5. Select <-- To Itinerary to return to Step 2. Itinerary to add other bookings or notes to your trip.


B. Sabre Live

 

*Please note, you can only use Sabre Live when setup is complete for your agency/company. If you are unsure whether you have this option, please email support@umapped.com. To begin the Sabre Live Connect setup, see PART 1 here.


1. From Step 2. Itinerary, select Import Bookings and then Import From Booking Inbox from the drop-down menu.



2. Enter a Sabre PNR in the Keyword field, select Sabre as the Source and then click Search

Tip! Any time you make a change to your PNR in Sabre, place your PNR on the Umapped assigned queue again to update your trip. Please note any changes made within Trip Publisher previously will be overwritten.


2.  Add Additional Bookings

Any additional bookings not included in your PNR can be added to your trip. Click here to read more.


3. Add Content

Add notes, destination content and other additional information for your travelers within the trip. Read here to learn how.


Next is Step 3 where you can add documents for your clients. Select 3. Documents to move on.


C) Step 3: Documents


Include supporting documents, travelers may need during their travels, directly in the trip. Documents are available to travelers in the documents tab of the mobile app and the web itinerary. Documents can be used in a variety of ways: adding more information about a specific booking, including vouchers, e-tickets, cancellation policies or destination content (like a country guide). 


Attach PDF or Word files under 10MB (like e-tickets or vouchers) to a trip. Click here for full instructions.


Tip! Any Word or PDF Files that are attached can be linked to a specific booking within the trip itinerary for easy access for travelers. Click here for more information.


Next is Step 4. Review where you can review your trip itinerary before sending to travelers. 



D) Step 4: Preview


You can review the following in Step 4:

1. Calendar: All Bookings will be visible on their specified date.

2. Documents: See any documents added in Step 3.

3. Map: Review the locations visible to the travelers on their map. If you are missing locations, add addresses to vendors you have used in Step 2. Please see here for instructions. 

4. Preview PDF: Download the PDF to view what your travelers will see.




When you are done reviewing, you can move to the last step by by selecting 5. Publish.




E) Step 5: Publish


Publish and send the trip to your travelers. Enter names and email addresses of individuals traveling to send them a personalized, branded email that includes links to the Traveler Interface (Web, PDF and Mobile App).

1. Add the travelers' email, first and last name. Then select Add Traveler. Repeat for each traveler.


Tip! Add yourself as a Traveler to receive a copy of the itinerary by email. This is a great way to review the trip from the client's perspective.


2. When you are ready select Publish Trip to send an email to the listed travelers.


Tip! See the email sent to your traveler by clicking on the “Preview Email” button after adding your traveler. Click here to see more.


3. If you make any changes to the trip, you can re-publish the trip. Please see here for instructions. 


F) The Traveler Interface


A branded email will be sent to the traveler, when you add them in Step 5. Publish, containing everything they need to access their trip.


Travelers can access their Trip in three formats. Click here to learn more: 

1. Web Itinerary 

2. PDF
