We collaborate with you
Thank you very much for your interest in our city, Donostia/San Sebastián. We will be happy to assist you in whatever way we can to help make your article a success. To ensure the best possible cooperation we kindly ask you to read the following terms of participation:
Fill out the application form
We receive many press trip requests throughout the year and in order to properly evaluate your application it is important that you fill out the form with your media outlet’s details and audience profile. The publication of the article must be confirmed by the media outlet in order to participate in a press trip.
Prepare your press trip in advance
Please let us know that you want to collaborate with us well in advance so that we can prepare the itinerary, contact the tourism resources, make reservations, etc. We ask that you submit your application at least six weeks in advance.
Letter of accreditation
We usually ask for collaboration from different tourist resources in Donostia/San Sebastián on the press trips we organise. To justify this collaboration, we ask that you accredit your application with a letter of accreditation from the editor/director of the media outlet that will publish your article on Donostia/San Sebastián. We would also appreciate it if you could submit at least two articles published in the last 12 months.
We’ll provide you with a press kit when you arrive to the city that includes a city map, a sightseeing guide and the press pack. We can also help with any additional information you might need.
Help with travel to Donostia/San Sebastián
In some cases, foreign Spanish Tourist Offices (OET) can help with travel to Donostia/San Sebastián. If you like, we can give you the name of the person you should contact to evaluate your request. You can also find information about your corresponding Spanish Tourist Office here: www.tourspain.es/es-es/Conozcanos/Oficinas/Paginas/default.aspx
We work with our partner hotels to organise accommodation for journalists. We cannot always offer free rooms, as it depends on the interest shown by the hotels.
Avoid peak season
We do not sponsor press trips in high season (June, July, August and September) or those on dates that coincide with major events and festivals, since the city’s tourism resources and accommodations are fully booked during these times.
Filming and photo sessions
San Sebastián Film Commission. A local Donostia/San Sebastián agency provides an end-to-end service that handles the licenses required for filming and holding photo sessions in the city. For further information, please contact www.fomentosansebastian.org/filmcommission/.
