what3words is an easy way to identify precise locations. Every 3m square has been given a unique combination of three words: a what3words address. Now you can find, share and navigate to precise locations using three simple words.
Easy navigation, simple deliveries and more
Use what3words to:
- Help emergency services know exactly where to find you - especially in hard to describe locations or places with inaccurate addresses
- Plan exact meet-up locations, simplifying navigation for you and others
- Give car breakdown services your precise location
- Navigate to any destination easily
- Save your favourite memorable spots so you know how to navigate back to them - a viewpoint, waterfall or proposal location
- Save key locations, from incident reporting to delivery entrances
- Help people find your business or Airbnb - perfect for travellers tired of relying on inaccurate street addresses
- Help people navigate to accessible entrances
Help others find and navigate to you
what3words addresses are accepted by over 85% of UK emergency services as well as the AA, and many UK delivery companies now use it for navigation. Businesses and hotels display what3words on their contact pages and booking confirmations - anywhere you would normally find location information: on maps, in guidebooks and more.
