When requesting assistance from Visit Jacksonville, please fill out the form below and include all requested materials and attachments. If you have questions, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Accommodations: Complimentary rooms for travel journalists/macro influencers on assignment may be provided at the discretion of Visit Jacksonville and based on outlet's reach, story angle and number of followers/reach. We kindly ask that journalists plan their media visits only during business hours (Monday-Friday). Complimentary weekend stays may be granted at the discretion of individual properties and are not guaranteed. If the travel journalist is not on assignment, it is up to the individual property to decide if accommodations will be complimentary or at a reduced media rate. Accommodations are subject to availability. During the summer months complimentary beach hotel stays are not available.
Please give Visit Jacksonville and the Beaches at least four weeks to plan your hotel stay.
Complimentary attraction passes: Visit Jacksonville will offer complimentary attraction passes or arrange complimentary visits to attractions for vetted travel journalists/macro influencers. Passes are valid for the duration of the press trip.
Meals: Visit Jacksonville staff will host one lunch and/or one dinner during visit based on availability. All other meals are the responsibility of the journalist, unless media/macro influencer is being hosted by Visit Jacksonville for specific food coverage, in that case, a gift card will be provided to cover meals. Contract for gift cards must be signed and returned prior to visit.
Transportation: Economy car rental and taxi reimbursement as well as airfare coverage will be evaluated on an individual basis. Visit Jacksonville will not cover airfare for journalists/macro influencers that are not on assignment for a major publication/media outlet or for family and/or friends of journalists.
*Costs incurred by family members and/or friends traveling with journalist will not be covered by Visit Jacksonville.
Coverage expectations from visiting Media:
Due to the growing demand for media visits, the Visit Jacksonville Communications team needs at least a 4-week notice (before the date of arrival) to plan visiting media’s itinerary and accommodations. Requests made after that deadline will only be reviewed at the discretion of Visit Jacksonville. Any exceptions may apply at the discretion of Visit Jacksonville.
