#1) Brainstorm your name ideas
Start by brainstorming what words could fit into your business name. In my name ideas, I used words like “Laughter”, “Cheer”, “Jovial” and “Nourish”, you can see that there is a trend towards getting potential customers to view the experiences they could have with your business in a positive way. Your goal here is to create a list of words or names that come to mind when thinking about your business.

#2) Shortlist your ideas
Once you’ve developed a list of possible names, do an analysis of your ideas. Remove any names that could be hard to remember, spell or speak aloud. Keep names that are brandable, sound great, are memorable and communicate your brand values, product or service to your target audience.
Here’s a quick checklist you can run your ideas through to help shorten your list of name:
- Is the name simple and easy to remember?
- Is the name easy to read and say aloud?
- Is the name different from competitors?
- Does the name convey a relevant meaning?
- Does the name avoid overused words or cliches?

You’ll now have a list of 3-6 great holiday and tourism business names and you can start to ask potential customers or people working in the industry for feedback (your target audience). Avoid feedback from family and friends, are more likely to praise all your ideas and they aren’t your customer.
Be sure to ask questions like:
- What first comes to mind when you first hear the name?
- How would you spell it?
With you’re customer feedback you can now ask yourself is the name still relevant? and did it represent your business how you intended?
My customer feedback:

This name brings a touch of romantic language to the idea of travel and tourism.
This name conveys a sense that those who book with the company will find nourishment in their journey.

Competitor Name Analysis
To help you brainstorm potential business names, let’s take a look at three successful holiday and tourism businesses and break down why and how they’ve chosen to name their business and why it works for them.
Generic names work particularly well in this industry with ‘HostelWorld’ being a prime example. It is easy to remember and clearly defines their services. The use of ‘world’ implies there reach throughout the globe.
Artisans of Leisure
Using two very specific, very niche words; artisan and leisure, the company gives off a personal, boutique feeling. This appeals to those looking for ‘hand-curated’ travel packages.
Snappy and easy to remember, the use of ‘bnb’ refers to its focus on accommodation, while ‘air’ adds a modern touch.
1. Do a Competitor Analysis
Doing a competitor analysis as your first step will save you a lot of time in the future, knowing what names to avoid and understanding why and how your competitors business name words for them will help you in forming your own business names. When analyzing competitors think about:
- What business or product values are they conveying in their business name? How does that work for them?
- Is there a trend in how these businesses are naming themselves? It’s best to avoid sounding like “just another one of those businesses”.
- Who does it best? Why does it work and how can I produce a better name?
2. Focus on Naming your Business not Describing it.
A typical pitfall most businesses run into is describing their business name too literally, using overused holiday and tourism terms like travel, journey or adventure. A more effective business name should convey to customers your businesses and product values at a deeper level. Try name your business in a way that has a story behind it.
Let’s take for example a real tourism business named “Trek America”.
This is a name that keeps it simple, but also provides imagery related to traveling the country. The term “trek” might make it more appealing to those who are looking for a style of travel more like backpacking.
3. How to make a more memorable name
Creating a memorable business name is the first step in getting into a customers mind and is also a task that’s easier said than done. Your business name should aim to stop a customer in their tracks and give an extra thought on your product among your wave of competitors. Some tips to create a memorable name would be:
- Use rhythmic pronunciation or alliteration (Triumph Travels, Rapture Travels
- Try using a word that wouldn’t be relevant when out of context (Holiday Liberation – presents the idea of being somewhere other than home for the holidays – like on a vacation)
- Keep it short and simple.
4. Try purchasing a Brandable business name
Brandable business names are names that are non-sensical but read and are pronounced well. They often use letter patterns of Vowel/Consonant/Vowel as these word structures are typically short, catchy and easy to say and remember. For example, some brandable holiday and tourism business names could be:
- Cailara Holidays
- Vutare Tourism
- Xadare Travels

5. Avoid combining words just to create a unique name.
Another mistake business owners typically make is creating bad word combinations when they find out that their business name idea is already taken. For example, John names his business Happiness Holidays and finds out it’s already taken. Because he’s already decided this is what he’ll name his business he tries to opt for similar sounding names like HappinessHollidays, HolidayHappy or HappiHolidays.
You can see how these ideas are a step backward as they are not catchy, easily pronounceable or memorable. In these situations, we suggest starting from scratch and trying the tips we mentioned previously.
