    As a large .travel investor, with sales in aftermarket around 100.000$ last year I am interested in community opinion related to .travel

    They just re-launch after the 10th years anniversary, seems most countries and regions use it as official toursim website, germany.travel, russia.travel, alabama.travel, ibiza.travel, colombia.travel....

    Here the press note I found,

    *************************************************************************

    New .travel website open to Everyone in Travel: Celebrating 10 years

    New .travel website open to Everyone in Travel: Celebrating 10 years

    FORT LAUDERDALE, Florida – Having first launched on October 3, 2005, .travel is now the chosen domain name for dozens of country tourism portals, as well as for businesses, organizations, and individuals who want to improve their visibility in the active travel segment of the Internet.

    TRMC, the .travel Registry, is pleased to announce the launch of its new and completely redesigned Registry website, travel.travel. The re-launch of the .travel site marks the successful completion of ten years of domain name service to the travel industry and announces the start of a new phase of support and services for .travel registrants. Just go to travel.travel/testimonials/ to see how a .travel name has helped our registrants.

    A .travel domain name is available to everyone who provides services, products or content in or to the travel industry.

For no charge, you can get an approved Member Number immediately that will allow you to register your .travel domain names with any of our 45 registrars.

    Our new website shows the value that our registrants achieve in visibility, identity and name selection, especially important now in a world with over 1,000 top level domains vying for attention.

    since the focus went to other gtlds that got released, maybe they're doing a re-launch promo, to grab some of that domainer money that is going to other .whatever registrations.

    they might even increase reg fee, who knows

    imo....

    I use to register with www.dondominio.com / www.mrdomain.com in most cases.

    Also with encirca.com or name.com

    Yes, seems is the common tld for countries, but also some big cities there, SanFrancisco.travel is great one, I am following a section called "live sites" http://www.travel.travel/live-sites/ also interesting the developments on generics, I remember software.travel for example.

    another things is the "premius at reg fee", I pick some of them, and one concretely sold out in about 24h at 2500€ (not bad!)...they have the listing here http://www.travel.travel/premium-domains/

    Seems domaining world is giving attention too:

    I think .TRAVEL re-launch will be successful story. More and more people are now interested in new gTLDs, and .TRAVEL is basically one of them, it does not matter that it is technically bit older..so good timing imo :)

    I think it have some advantage in front of nTLD, when I sell I use to show the nice official developments.

    Search in google for "ibiza", for "seychelles" for "fiji islands", for "argentina"...and check where the .travel is.
    I think most expensive was one I sold out this year, dnjournal reported it, let me search for the report...

    I am cofortable with around 90$ of www.dondominio.com (if you are out of spain can ask them to put out the tax)...also are good name.com and encirca.com, but the cheapest I think is galcomm at 89$ http://www.galcomm.com/domain/dottravel/ I never tried but they say ".Travel domain now at $89 for first year registration, plus a free mobile site for your domain for the whole year!"

    Thanks Ian, there is been a few sales reported this year...
    not to mention more developed sites aside many many GEO domains (some even official Govermental' Country sites).

    please don't call .travel a new gTLD:)

    Ten years of the .travel domain extension – did it work?

    https://www.tnooz.com/article/ten-years-of-dot-travel-domain/

    This is an interesting thing https://www.google.com/#q=site:.travel and interesting to compare with .top or .xyz

    Have you checked http://www.travel.travel/live-sites/ ?

    www.misIt.travel

    Laptops, smartphones, iPods, iPads and purses are expensive items to lose. They also contain a lot of our valuable personal information. With identity-theft on the rise, we simply cannot afford not to find our valuable lost possessions. Like many great ideas, MISIT™ grew out of a needs-based field. MISIT™ has been reuniting travelers with their lost property at ease for a price that is affordable. The close relationships we have fostered with airport and airline operators across the globe has enabled us to recover lost items on-board inbound/outbound planes, in airport terminals and various business establishments within the airport. This relationship is key for items to be returned to their rightful owners as swiftly as possible. Our sophisticated technology and dedicated, conscientious staff are able to make the reclaiming of lost property as easy as possible for our clients
