I have sold several Country/Region Vacations.com domain names in the past year and a half, and I am listing AthensVacations.com for $5,500. Athens is one of the most popular tourist locations in the world, and I think this can be built into a great travel portal. If it doesn’t sell this week, I plan to develop it similarly to TobagoVacations.com, which is now earning around $1.50/day with Adsense after just launching a couple of weeks ago. I think AthensVacations.com is a far superior domain name, and it would be great for a smallish website with a WC Travel or IAN hotel affiliate engine on it.
One of the biggest online travel agencies, Vacations To Go, has a number of city, country, and regional vacations.com domain names, and they use them to forward traffic to their primary website. The company owns names such as StockholmVacations.com, BarcelonaVacations.com, BrusselsVacations.com, BucharestVacations.com, CairoVacations.com, and many more great names like this.
Below are some comparisons of Vacation/Vacations.com domain names that have sold recently, and I think you can see from this that AthensVacations.com is listed at a very fair price:
AsianVacations.com $15,000* Sold via ElliotsBlog.com
IsraelVacations.com* Sold via ElliotsBlog.com (price not revealed)
EnglandVacations.com* Sold via ElliotsBlog.com (price not revealed)
The first person to post “sold” will get the domain name. This is a multi-venue listing, and I believe it will sell quickly, so if you want it, claim it. The domain name is registered at Moniker.
