​Media trip requests

We work with journalists on a local, regional and national basis to facilitate travel features, supplements and generic stories which incorporate a journey on our Dover to France and Newcastle to Amsterdam routes. Whilst all requests are considered, please be advised we are not able to accommodate all requests.

In return for free passage we require information about your title, audience and related coverage.

Please complete and submit an application form to Dover.PR@dfds.com at least five working days in advance of your proposed date of travel.​
