Hitting the stores or the all-you-can-eat buffet, Bing makes getting there easy

Bing is there for the things that matter this holiday season, from making the dash to the sales where every second counts, to getting you to that cool place you just heard of for some downtime or dinner over the break.

We’ve just released a simpler way to find more local information and directions. These new facts at the top of the search page aim to provide simple answers to searches for things like phone numbers for restaurants, the hours of your local mall, or directions to your friend’s house.

Need help figuring out whether that unbelievable sale item is still around and you can’t waste another moment? Or want to celebrate your savings with a nice dinner? Just search for the phone number and we’ll give it to you right there.


Now, how to get there? Just ask for directions and you can see a quick answer showing the best route with distance and travel time information. Click on turn by turn directions to get the full route details.


Once you’re out and about, keep your options open and your answers instant through Bing.com on your phone. Got a chance to meet an old friend for a catch up but not sure if the timing works out? Ask for hours of operation to help make the call so that you can focus on more pressing things like coming up with a witty joke to bring back the nostalgia of high school.
