Extending travel possibilities around the world

WHL is an online booking network with a difference.

WHL is an online booking network with a difference. It’s a global franchise with a focus on travel to destinations in the developing world and “off the beaten track.” The company originated from a project of the IFC (part of the World Bank Group), piloting this new model in the Mekong region in Asia. Unlike other global booking sites, each destination site is owned and operated by locals. As a client, you deal directly with local people; better yet, the people you book with will be there when you get to your destination.

With WHL’s mission of extending travel possibilities around the world, the adoption of .travel was a natural fit. Unlike .com, the .travel domain speaks specifically to what WHL is about, with each WHL destination site providing a wealth of local travel information and booking possibilities.

“We decided to purchase the .travel name as part of a re-branding campaign to better identify us as a travel service provider,” stated Len Cordiner, Founder and CEO of WHL, “.travel helps identify travel companies like WHL in the myriad of other companies out there.”

Since the beginning of the re-branding campaign back in 2007, WHL has used www.whl.travel throughout all marketing materials, promotions at trade shows, and emails. The Internet reaction was tremendous. Traffic to the network rose and continues to climb steadily today. In fact, in its first year as a .travel domain, WHL was recognized as one of the Top Five Innovations in Travel by Time Magazine.

ETN is introducing its readers to .travel companies and destinations through a series of articles. If you are a .travel company and would like to share your story about how the .travel domain has helped your business, please send us an email to: [email protected] .
