Madeira Tour & Trail Map 6th Edition has been produced in 'Map-Paper' and 'Super-Durable' versions. If you are just planning a one-off trip to Madeira you might want to save GBP3 by buying the 'Map-Paper' version. Is it worth paying GBP8.99 for the Super-Durable version? Yes, it is. You get the best Madeira map that is waterproof, feels like silk but has incredible strength that will survive rough use for years to come - invest in the best. Still not convinced?
