Listen out for what3words!

Hi everyone, I wanted to share a new way we're spreading the word about what3words in the UK  – on the radio!

Over the next 3-4 weeks, this ad will be playing across a large section of the North of England. We based it on a staycation theme, as we've seen lots of people using what3words to find holiday cottages and campsites.

Let us know what you think  or if you hear it while you're listening to the radio!
