Düsseldorfa tour operator TUI takes it sporty. "EM111" has the Hanoverian holiday market leader called his promotion, which he wants to boost his business just in time for the European Football Championship. Central and remote haul book about him, receives a discount until June 22 of 111 euros. There is also the discount on around 50 hotels, where seven nights are booked and is the fare at least €499.
Norwegian Cruise Line beckons operators of travel agencies with 30 euro extra Commission if they sell one of its Europe cruises between 9 and 22 June. Should vacationers at the "European Champions Sale" also benefit from a tiered discount.
Seemingly, all forward to the European Championships. Only the travel industry laments secretly. The reason: During international football tournaments - and in the current European Championships is to expect little else--prove the Germans traditionally travel-lazy. Two years ago, when Germany in Brazil, the holiday business faltered."Shortly before the start of the World Cup, there was a restrained booking entrance", it was said at that time such as Alltours. The majority of football fans stayed at the time prefer at home with friends and family to share in the excitement. Nothing has changed.
The travel business because of the late summer holiday was already sluggish in EM June. In addition, many hesitate your holiday bookings because of the numerous attacks.
But now Germany's tour operators decided apparently to use the EM effect to theiradvantage. With attractive travel and EM-inspired discounts lure not only TUI and Norwegian. Many are creative, because actual advertising with the tournament is strictly controlled by the World Soccer Federation FIFA. The logos may be used or sold tickets only through the purchase of expensive licenses.
In Germany, for example, individuals on the German Football Federation (DFB) andabout the REWE tour operators Dertour, which offers also travel to the venues in France, can purchase tickets for games. These licenses are awarded to selected and often long-standing partner in small numbers. However, other German tour operatorshave found ways to jump on the euro-train.
Deutsche Post is one of the riders. Post and more specifically their young travel agency travel: true to the motto "When our guys, get the discounts!" get travelers per goal of the national team 10 Euro discount on travel deals. The offer is valid from thenext day of a European Championship game for three days.
In addition, the post office holds a public-viewing-special in the range. Trips run in eleven German cities, which are known for their fan zones and large canvases. Here too the company with discounts lures: the round-trip with the post bus is issued thefirst 50 books.
