Suggest a good business name

I am setting-up a new travel agency (domestic and international) and I am having trouble finding a good business name. This name will be used for both offline and online (website). I don't have any problem with the domain as I can always pick a good one but I am having a hard time thinking of anything related to travel and tours.

So far, I come-up with something like this:

Happy Trip Travel and Tours
Experience Miles of Smile

Can anyone suggest a good one. Is the above okay?

Thank you

    Make a list of all the "wants your prospects have in you niche. Use their words. Then identify the words that are used the most often, gear your travel business towards that, and then choose a domain name that uses their words.

    Then those people who search on that keyword phrase will find you first.

    Cheers, Bruce

    Um...sorry, but that name sounds too cutesy to me. Kind of 60's hippy-ish. The tag line isn't as bad, but I'd leave off the "Experience" part and add an "s" so it was "Miles of Smiles" if you want to use that.

    I'd go for something descriptive, like TravelWorld or TravelSmart (both are probably already taken, I just used them for examples).

    Just when you think you've got it all figured out, someone changes the rules.

    According to the top experts (psychologists who study sales and persuasion) short, simple names enhance your business prospects (Google, IBM, Pepsi, etc), or else go for aliteration (Krispy Kreme, Dunkin Donuts, BlockBuster) or rhyme (Lean Cuisine).

    Remember, although every word and short combination of words is already taken in the .com form, you can always make up words that are either catchy, or which convey their meaning despite being made up: Travtours, TourStar, etc.
