In an industry where the domain name, hotels.com was snapped up for $11 million,category defining keyword domain names in the tourism and hospitality space are a rare commodity. Now Pixel Capital is offering a unique opportunity to buy a package of premium domains including accommodation.com.
Pixel Capital director Roland B Bleyer said: “No matter what the prevailing economic mood is, the travelling public is as keen as ever to use the internet to find a place to rest their head.”
On 20 February 2013 comScore, a leader in measuring the digital world, reported that in the US alone consumer spending in the online travel space topped $100 billion for the first time in 2012.
Global research firm Forrester in its 25 July 2010 forecast on Online Leisure and Unmanaged Business Travel predicted consumer spending will climb by 41% increasing from $101 billion in 2011 to $143 billion.
The premium package offered by Pixel Capital includes accommodation.com; accommodation.net and accommodation.co.uk. The deal even has the common mis-spellings of the word accommodation covered. The Google keyword tool shows that every month a staggering 150 million searches are completed globally in regards to accommodation.
Bleyer said: “This asset rich accommodation package has so many dimensions globally. Not just hotels, but bed and breakfast, holiday rentals, student accommodation or even long term leasing. In the right hands it offers a real potential to become a dominant market player. These domains could be used not only by online travel agents but anyone from major airlines to hotel groups or even property developers. An astute investor may simply want to purchase as part of their investment portfolio with the value assured to grow as internet usage continues to explode.”
“We are already in discussion with some key market players and are seeking expressions of interest until the end of June,” he added.
