New Categories Added to .Travel Domain List

The Travel Partnership Corporation, the non-profit body responsible for developing domain name eligibility policies for the .travel TLD, has recommended adding two new sectors to the list of travel industry entities eligible to hold such domain names. Travel insurance businesses and travel training institutions 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. The TTPC will post these changes on its web site for public comments for a 60-day period starting April 12. If approved by TTPC board after TTPC executive committee review of the public comments, the .travel Internet domain space will grow to include 20 sectors under which travel-related business and organizations can qualify to register a name, including airlines, attractions/theme parks, bed & breakfasts, bus/taxi/limousine operators, camp facility operators, vehicle rental companies/airport specialty car park companies, computer reservation/travel technology providers, convention & visitor's bureaus, cruise lines, ferries, hotels/resorts/casinos, national tourism offices, passenger rail lines, restaurants, tour operators, travel agents, travel media and travel-consumer and market research organizations.
