No need for a scrum as Map24 shows rugby hotel availability Monday 10 September 2007 PDF Print Dedicated search for local hotels in France, Cardiff and Edinburgh As the rugby gets underway France, fans of the sport will be heading to the host country over the coming days and weeks to take in the excitement of the sixth such tournament in rugby history. Forty two of the forty eight matches will be played in France with the other six being played in Cardiff and Edinburgh. And with France such a close and convenient location for British rugby enthusiasts, they can travel at a moment’s notice and take advantage of Map24’s route finder and hotel booking service on http://www.uk.map24.com/hotels Last month Map24 introduced a new service which displays hotel information and availability during address search and route planning on its digital maps. As well as finding accommodation, users may browse the local area and pick up information about local amenities, such as bars and restaurants, and other points of interest, such as local attractions. To simplify finding the most suitable hotel in France (or Cardiff and Edinburgh), Map24 offers a range of different search options. You can search by location, price, special offers and facilities available. For fans aiming to travel at the last minute, late availability bookings are also possible. A mouse click on the chosen hotel on the map displays a short description with photo and prices, as well as a direct link to the supplier. The location can be set as "start", "destination" or "via" and the search result can be sent to a friend or saved in MyMAp24 address book, so that the user does not have to search for the location again another time. Nations represented in the tournament include England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland. See www.rugbyworldcup.com for further information.
