Address finder for website, cheap/budget options for the UK

    Hi All,

    This is my first post and I have no web design or HTML experience so please excuse the naive nature of this question. I'm building a website with my friend and we require a postcode or address finder for the UK (initially). It's a very common functionality on many different websites but on researching the topic, I was surprised most of the APIs like Postcodes.io, Adressian, getaddress - charge by number of searches made. Now don't get me wrong, they're entitled to charge for these services but we have very little budget, I'm afraid that the costing plans offered by these companies isn't really affordable for me.

    Question for this forum: are there any alternative solutions we need to be looking at, any vendors that maybe cheaper than the ones I've been able to research, appreciate your expert guidance on the subject.

    Thnx,

    SpeedBird

    Thanks for your reply, I'll look into the link you've provided however, the post office API is free for a bit after which they charge per inquiry, I don't know if there's a free version for it.

    If an API call limit of 20 per-day would
    suit your requirements, then this site..

    https://getaddress.io/

    ...will give it to you for free. :)

    One small proviso though...

    Expires after 30 days
