Poll: What is Holiday.com Worth?

5

This afternoon, I published an article about the upcoming Holiday.com domain name auction that will be held in November. In my opinion, this is one of the top travel domain names, and domain names of this caliber do not come on the market all that often.

I thought it would be interesting to see how much readers believe this domain name is worth. I am not asking what you think it will sell for at auction, but rather, what the value of Holiday.com is. As you may or may not be aware, “holiday” is used internationally instead of the “vacation” term we more commonly use in the US. For instance, if I lived in London, I would probably say, “I am going on holiday” rather than “I am going on vacation.”

  1. I think HomeAway.com could be one of the main contenders willing to spend large for holiday.com – the two domains even sound good together if they were cross promoted.

    HomeAway’s founder and CEO Brian Sharples said three years ago: “I mean we bought a website in the United States called VacationRentals.com for 35 million bucks. The only reason we bought it was so Expedia couldn’t have that URL.”

  2. Classic Name, I guess the name’s worth around $20M-$30M.

    If the owner had taken some pain to develop it as a business, even a small one, the value of this name+business would have been at least around $750M.

  3. Hi Elliot,

    I see Dave from Sedo is brokering Holidays.com. Can you reach out him to see what he can share from the plural version of this name? It should help us to find the value of Holiday.com.
