Looks like their best domain, AirTours(.)com, isn’t included on the auction list, and neither is Hotels4u(.)com
The majority of the auctioned domains play second fiddle to the main web site. They were being used as URL redirects for the most part, which means zero SEO value individually.
Well I would argue that their best domains are thomascook.com and thomascook.co.uk. 🙂
These are the domains everybody wants!
HolidayHotels.com would be be a great brand for a hotel chain, imo. Catchy and memorable.
