Addison Lee, London’s largest premium private hire business and same day courier operation now accepts what3words, so customers can say exactly where they want to be picked up or dropped off.

Addison Lee, London’s largest premium private hire business and same day courier operation, has integrated what3words into its booking tools to help with journeys and deliveries where a greater level of accuracy is required. From today, customers will be able to use what3words across all Addison Lee booking channels – app, web and phone.

what3words helps customers where they are navigating London’s hard-to-find addresses, or buildings and locations with multiple entrances, such as hospitals, offices and large venues. A business name, flat building name or postal address will often drop a pin in the centre of the building – which can be difficult to navigate if the destination is a large office building or place with multiple entrances and car parks.

what3words has divided the world into a grid of 3m squares and given each a three-word identifier. Entering ///year.link.hops as a destination in the Addison Lee app, for example, will take you to the precise front entrance of the BBC Tower Building at Alexandra Palace, as listed on their website’s information for visitors.
