TCP Recommends Two New Sectors Eligible for .travel Domain Name
April 13, 2006 – Two new sectors have been added to the list of travel industry entities eligible to hold .travel domain names. The announcement came from the Travel Partnership Corporation at the WTTC Global Travel Summit in Washington, D.C., earlier this week. Travel insurance businesses and travel training institutions, both of them being purely dedicated to serve the travel industry only, are now being considered, pending review of public comments, to join the global travel community and register their rightful names within the .travel Internet space.

If approved by TTPC board, the .travel Internet domain space will grow to include 20 sectors under which travel-related business and organizations can qualify to register a name. Categories currently include: Airlines, Attractions/Theme Parks, Bed & Breakfast Houses, Bus/Taxi/Limousine Operators, Camp Facility Operators, Vehicle Rental Companies/Airport Specialty Car Park Companies, Computer Reservation/Travel Technology Provider, Convention & Visitor’s Bureaus, Cruise Lines, Ferries, Hotels/Resorts/Casinos, National Tourism Offices, Passenger Rail Lines, Restaurants, Tour Operators, Travel Agents, Travel Media, Travel-Consumer and Market Research Organization

"In response to the will of the travel community and demand for the expansion of the .travel Internet space, TTPC continues to evaluate additional segments within the community for domain name qualification," says Birger Backman, Chairman of TTPC. "We are pleased to offer the opportunity to register .travel domain names to bona fide travel service providers in the framework of established practices and policies put in place for the good of the industry," says Backman.
