This week, HelicopterHire.com has been sold for a tremendous £90,000 ($119,000), making it the latest eye-watering sum to be paid for a domain. Purchased by national transport brokerage firm, Regency Car Hire (owned by Transport Broker Group), it appears the domain has been bought to aid the group’s time of expansion, entering new markets; the first being supercar rental & helicopter charter.

As the brains behind brands such as Regency, Limo Broker & Cars For Stars, the business is incredibly tech-focused, expected to stamp TBG’s name in the helicopter hire industry from the offset. Reporting to already be working on an online booking system as well as a price comparison application, the sky really is the limit for this new venture! Talking on these exciting times and new business focus, a representative of the firm says: 

‘Having been in business for over a decade, we are always being asked for high-end services such as helicopter charter. With a loyal customer base, we feel now is the right time to roll out this service, needing a strong domain name to do so. We are really excited to build out the website and introduce some revolutionary tech into this niche space.’

Being in the digital era that we are, reports of such high domain name price tags are not rare, with domains that feature famous people or in-demand services fetching the most. Neymar.com is one of the latest to hit the headlines, expected to be sold for a 7-figure sum in light of his transfer to PSG. However on the other side HarveyWeinstein.com domain name sold for $695.

It will be interesting to see Regency’s plans for HelicopterHire.com – a new website seems to be up already, so they’re certainly moving fast.
