UK travellers who have booked cheap flights to the USA this year will be able to download free digital guides to North America if they sign up to the American Automobile Association (AAA).
The AAA has just placed a series of the guides, suitable for e-readers and smartphones, aimed at giving people taking USA holidays a wide range of useful information on destinations across the continent.
There are 30 eTourBook guides in total available for download off the AAA website, giving people listings of the best cheap hotels, the best value restaurants and other local attractions in a given region. Although casual visitors to the site will be able to see which titles are available, membership of the AAA is required to be able download them.
The association’s managing director of travel publishing Bill Wood said that the AAA eTourBooks were “created in response to member requests for travel information that was concise, portable and electronic”. He added: “AAA is committed to providing travel information to our members on the same devices that they are already packing on their trips.”
As well as guides for people in the USA, the AAA has also published a series of guides for travellers taking Canadian, Mexican and Caribbean holidays.
Airlines have recently been expanding their range of cheap flights to the USA, with Virgin Atlantic launching its first Airbus A330 from Manchester Airport last weekend bound for Orlando in Florida. Holidays to the Sunshine State are a perennial favourite, which is why British Airways has also begun offering cheap flights to Tampa, a quieter option for holidaymakers keen to avoid the bustle of Miami and Orlando airports.
