I'm in a situation where I need to implement a 'branch locator' feature that allows users to enter their postcode (and possibly a radius in which they're willing to travel), for which results will then be returned from my database on a map with driving directions, distances etc.

Does any such product exist? I'm in the UK, so it has to have UK postcode data but I can't find anything and don't really want to have to try and get hacky with the google maps API. I found Postcode Anywhere which would provide me with the distances and postcode data I need, it's just going to be awkward putting it all together.

EDIT: I didn't actuall notice that Postcode Anywhere offer a branch locator product. Trouble is, it's a bit pricey. Does anyone know of any better or cheaper solutions?

Prices aren't readily displayed for these, but here are the equivalents from three companies which provide a range of UK postcode related software:
