AAA's free digital guides provide members with on-the-go access to travel information
ORLANDO, Fla., April 6, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- AAA is providing its members with even more on-the-go access to its trove of trusted travel information by delivering content in new electronic formats for e-reader devices and smartphones. AAA members can now download digital TourBook guides at AAA.com/ebooks.
Each of the 30 new eTourBook guides highlights a top North American travel destination complete with listings for AAA Approved and Diamond Rated hotels and restaurants, AAA Editor's Picks for attractions, events and nightlife, and other proprietary information available only through AAA. Like their printed counterparts, the digital TourBook guides provide members with the must-have details useful for both trip planning and for reference while they're traveling, but in a format offering frequent updates.
"The AAA eTourBook series was created in response to member requests for travel information that was concise, portable and electronic," said Bill Wood, managing director, AAA Travel Publishing. "AAA is committed to providing travel information to our members on the same devices that they are already packing on their trips."
Members can take along the free digital guides for their Amazon Kindle, Apple iPad, Barnes and Noble Nook, Sony Reader or smartphones equipped with an e-reader application. Site visitors to AAA.com/ebooks can view the available eTourBook titles, but only AAA members can initiate a download. To complete the process, members login to download titles to their personal computer and then sync the files to their portable device.
