    AA Big Road Atlas Europe - anyone got one?

    We're off on holiday in Aug to Germany and will be driving through France, Belgium and Germany

    Am trying to find a suitable road map to use

    This seems to be my only choice in one book otherwise I have to buy 3 books, one each for each country

    So, anyone got this book and can recommend it or not?
    I want to know if it has enough detail to get us where we want to go AND enough detail to go out and about in Germany without getting a seperate Germany map

    thanks

    use google maps to plan your journey, zoom in and out to the detail you need then just print the pages off.

    Thanks but that gets really messy unless I'm just not good at it

    I always end up with loads of bits of paper especially to make sure I cover all the detours we might make - no good being in the middle of Belgium and find we get detoured off our print off!

    I'd rather take a book and be covered

    We already have that

    That's ok for getting you from A to Z, but when we're in Germany (with the parents) we want to be able to sit and plan the next day, or whenever, and have a map open on a table in front of us so we can see where there is to go and how far it is etc. All 4 of us trying to look at/share a little 4 inch screen wont work the same!

    Thanks, but unless you have another idea - I still want a book map and would like a recommendation, or not, of this one by the AA

    Cashback sites are all pretty much the same overall but different percentages across stores.

    ALWAYS use this site to check which offers best deal
