Press Release: March 31, 2010
Customers who visit leading travel price comparison website gosimply.com now don't need to settle for just a normal map view to determine the locations of airport car parks.
Using technology provided by Google Maps, gosimply now displays street views of approximately 70% of the car parks they offer, including those at Dover Port and in Central London (the other 30% do not currently have street views available).
The aim of supplying these new street views is to help customers identify the car park they have booked by showing either the actual entrance to the facility, or the point at which a traveller would need to turn off of a main road.
Tim Hagger, Managing Director, said:
"Utilising the benefits of Google's Street View was a no-brainer making it a logical progression from the addition of car park reviews and our gosimply award system. It offers our customers a visually enriched way to choose a car park - and yet again, I'm proud to say that we're the first to do it."
Visitors to gosimply.com will be able to use the full functionality of Google Maps to click and drag the street view and zoom in or out, enabling them to check for landmarks or other recognisable features to assist in finding a car park's location.
gosimply also offer a comprehensive selection of pre-travel necessities, including discounted travel insurance, international car hire and airport hotel accommodation.
