Share your precise location with what3words

What3words is a navigation app that has simplified how we share and discuss locations. Every 3-metre square of the world has been given a unique combination of three words, which is what you use instead of a map pin. Read more about how the integration works and how you can set it up in this article.

The easiest way to share your precise location.

Is your property difficult to find by postcode alone? Do you have Glamping pods or pitches you’d like guests to be able to navigate directly to? 

What3words is a navigation app that has simplified how we share and discuss locations. Every 3-metre square of the world has been given a unique combination of three words, which is what you use instead of a map pin. 

Inn Style has integrated with what3words, putting this innovative technology at your fingertips through your Property Management System. 

The integration allows you to plot your precise location, which we then output onto your emails.

Why shift toward what3words?

It can damage a guest’s perception of you if they get lost on the way to your accommodation. It also means they’re spending more time trying to find their destination than enjoying the experience they’ve come for. 

Through what3words’ technology, travellers will spend more time where they need to be. This technology provides the precise location of your front gate, entrance or parking space – to do so, simply share the 3-word location of the space you’re providing directions to. 

Some of the benefits of this technology include:

  • 3-word addresses are easier to remember than postal addresses
  • By dividing the planet up into 3m x 3m squares, you have a higher level of accuracy than most apps are able to provide today
  • It allows people to share your location and communicate where they are with others
  • It can be used in 14 languages and works offline, eliminating communication barriers with those travelling from foreign cities or countries
