The article presents some pieces of news related to the travel industry in Germany. Coaching packages could be just the ticket for agents looking to cash in on football fever. Germany plays host to next year's Football World Cup and, in an effort to capitalise on the outbreak of football fever the event is bound to inspire, the German National Tourist Office is promoting the destination as the ideal place to learn new skills. Unfortunately, organisers of the tournaments have given 40% of tickets to sponsors and held on to the rest so there are none available for tour operators to package up and sell via the trade.
