Media trips play a crucial role in promoting Durham as a destination and Visit County Durham welcomes requests from travel writers who are interested in visiting the county.
We receive a high number of requests for support. To ensure that we meet your requirements, as well as our own, we would ask that you read the following guidelines and complete the request form below.
- Please contact us at least four weeks before your trip, completing the registration form.
- Freelance writers need to provide two recently published travel related cuttings for the request to be considered. Commissions must also be in place.
- In return for our assistance, we request that you include a link to thisisdurham.com and relevant social media channels in the resulting coverage.
Visit County Durham is able to provide a range of support, from suggestions of places to visit to bespoke itineraries. We can also provide contacts for relevant businesses, spokespeople for stories, photography and background information.
Working with our destination partners, we may also be able to cover or contribute towards the cost of accommodation, travel, attraction entry, tour guides, meals and other activities while in the county. This support is given on the understanding that the hotels, restaurants and attractions included in the itinerary are featured in the resulting coverage.
