Planning a trip in the near future? Not sure which route to take to best plan your trip?
AA route finder is one of UK's best route planners that you will ever come across. Its interactive interface will help you find not only the shortest route, but also the fastest route, which is not necessarily the shortest one.
How to use AA Route Finder
All you need to do is to type in the departure and the destination points at the top left corner of the website. You are given an option of adding a "via" point, where you would like to stop by during the trip. You will also have a route option, where you can choose to avoid motorways or tolls/congestion charging. Once you have specified all the details of your trip, just click on "Get Route," and it will compute the best route for you within a second or two.
AA route finder covers Great Britain, Ireland, and the rest of the Europe. You can easily print the route information, and when you do this, make sure to open up the print-friendly version of the page by clicking on the little printer sign on the left.
One of the best features that I like the most about AA route finder is the ability to locate hotels or restaurants at any given point of your route. With other route planners that I have used, it was not as easy to find a restaurant at a specific point during the trip - it was quite annoying to zoom into the area first and search for a restaurant. Some times you will loose the route information when you search for a local information such as restaurants or hotels nearby. With AA route finder, all you need to do is just hover your mouse over to the location where you would like to perform the search, and the hotel or restaurant search option will pop up, which will display the information directly on the map.
I much prefer the AA route finder over any other route planners that exist, and I believe you will find the same, once you start using it.
