Press Travel Request
Thank you for your interest in Dominica. As a courtesy to visiting journalists researching the destination, Discover Dominica Authority provides assistance in securing accommodations and/or services upon receipt of this completed questionnaire and work samples. Please note that services depend on tourism member and airline partner availability, interest and lead time.
To qualify for host assistance, journalists must do the following:
SUBMIT SAMPLES OF RECENT PRINT OR BROADCAST ARTICLES WITHIN THE PAST SIX MONTHS, plus a letter from their editor, publisher, or news director confirming the assignment to cover Dominica.
In addition, journalists traveling on the media hosting program are advised:
Any property or tour operator providing comps must be mentioned in the final document/segment.
Overnight stays not on Dominica are the responsibility of the journalist/media outlet.
Media traveling under the negotiated media rates provided by American Airlines must mention the airline in the final document/segment.
Discover Dominica Authority does not guarantee requested complimentary airfare, meals, ground transfers, tour guides or translators; does not negotiate trade-out agreements; does not guarantee complimentary or discounted accommodations; does not solicit support for one-night stopovers and advertising/sales missions. If producing fashion/catalog shoots, discounted and/or full rate accommodations apply. During high season (December 15 - April 15) and major U.S. holidays, blackout periods may apply. Blackout holidays include New Year's, President's Day weekend (mid-February), Memorial Day weekend (end of May), Fourth of July weekend, Labor Day weekend (early September), Columbus Day weekend (mid-October), Thanksgiving (3rd week in November) and Christmas.
Airline-related expenses over and above the cost of the ticket are also not the responsibility of Discover Dominica Authority.
