Important information

Free newspapers include regularly published press journals containing regional editorial content. They are published at least once per quarter and are funded largely by local advertisements and inserts. They are distributed in the same contractually defined distribution area on the next day at the latest after mailing. The smallest definable area is a location (postcode and place name). Free newspapers may contain publishers supplements and third-party inserts, which are charged for separately. Promotional brochures and newspapers are not considered to be free newspapers. Free newspapers do not benefit from federal press subsidies.

Please refer to the “Free newspapers – wide coverage on the day you want” factsheet to check what the requirements are for using this service.


The prices for the delivery of free newspapers can be found on the price lists in the “Free newspapers – wide coverage on the day you want” factsheet. They are based on the weight of the newspaper and the predefined distribution area.
