Hi, I am forming an online buisness as an independant travel

Customer Question

I am forming an online buisness as an independant travel agent. I am not a travel agency but rather have an affilate connection with online travel websites and getting commision from each sale. My traget audience is the Israeli market and my specialty is travel packages for music concerts and fetivals in europe.
I am located in Germany in munich and would like to apply for a UG company here. My question is regarding the legality of ticket selling in munich, and in europe in general. Meaning, is it legal for me to purchase in advance tickets to concerts and then resell them in travel package? Is it legal for me to resell the tickets buy themself if i get stuck with tickets? I think i am seeking help from a lawyer that specializes in this field.
Should i get any special certification for it? Like be an authorized ticket broker? Should i get a concent from the concert promoter? How does it work?
Another example is sellers of tickets for concert and football events on ebay in Germany i see they have valid companies, is it legal for them to resell their goods on ebay or any ticket brokers platform?
In additiondo i need special premmisions to open such a company in Germany? For example to be a member of the IATA? Or can i as a person who dont have a formal education in the field, sell travel packages? Should i for example consider forming the company as an off shore company in case you see to many legal constraints here?
