The German Travel Association (DRV)

The Germans like to travel. They are worldwide amongst the nations which spend most for their trips abroad. The tourism industry in Germany is hence an important economic factor and secures around 2.9 million jobs.

The German Travel Association (DRV) is the leading special interest group of the tourism industry. We defend above all the interests of tour operators and travel agents. DRV is backed by a special economic clout: our members represent the lion’s share of the sales revenues on the tour operator and travel agency market. Several thousands of member companies, including numerous service providers, turn us into a strong community.
