Glad to hear it!

A good many of our clients are travel providers, whose facilities are rented and whose services are purchased, so they are still left out of web markup.

We're always interested in making schema.org markup more useful. I
haven't looked in detail at the modeling required (or its treatment so
far in GR). However travel has cropped up in a number of conversations
recently, and seems an area well worth attention.

The approach we're taking here is to get the foundations in place and
build things out gradually. So we shouldn't expect this round of
additions to be the last word on the topic. If you can review the
drafts with that in mind, it would be helpful to get your perspective
on what more would be needed, and whether the basic building blocks
are heading in the right direction.

In particular, we always benefit when discussions are grounded in
practical examples, so if you're in a position to pass along some
sample sites and specific pages whose existing content could be
improved with additional schema.org markup, that would be really
