Pay-As-You-Go Pricing

The Distance Matrix API uses a pay-as-you-go pricing model.

How usage and billing work under the pay-as-you-go model

  • The Google Maps Platform APIs are billed by SKU.
  • Usage is tracked for each Product SKU, and an API may have more than one Product SKU.
  • Cost is calculated by: SKU Usage x Price per each use.
  • For each billing account, for qualifying Google Maps Platform SKUs, a $200 USD Google Maps Platform credit is available each month, and automatically applied to the qualifying SKUs.

See guide to understanding billing for more information.

Pricing for the Distance Matrix API

Under the pay-as-you-go pricing model, Distance Matrix API requests generate one of two SKUs depending on the type of request: basic or advanced.

SKU: Distance Matrix

A request to the Distance Matrix API or the Maps JavaScript API’s Distance Matrix Service (excludes requests triggering the Distance Matrix Advanced billing SKU billing SKU).

MONTHLY VOLUME RANGE
(Price per ELEMENT)
0–100,000 100,001–500,000 500,000+
0.005 USD per each
(5.00 USD per 1000)
0.004 USD per each

Each query sent to the Distance Matrix API generates elements, where the number of origins times the number of destinations equals the number of elements.

SKU: Distance Matrix Advanced

A request to the Distance Matrix API or the Maps JavaScript API’s Distance Matrix Service that uses traffic information.

MONTHLY VOLUME RANGE
(Price per ELEMENT)
0–100,000 100,001–500,000 500,000+
0.01 USD per each
(10.00 USD per 1000)
0.008 USD per each

Contact Sales for volume pricing

Each query sent to the Distance Matrix API generates elements, where the number of origins times the number of destinations equals the number of elements.

A Distance Matrix Advanced SKU is charged for a Distance Matrix API or a Maps JavaScript API’s Distance Matrix Service that uses traffic information. Traffic information is used when all the following apply (these are the conditions required to receive the duration_in_traffic field in the Distance Matrix response):

  • The travel mode parameter is driving, or is not specified (driving is the default travel mode).
  • The request includes a valid departure_time parameter. The departure_time can be set to the current time or some time in the future. It cannot be in the past.

Other Usage Limits

While you are no longer limited to a maximum number of elements per day (EPD), the following usage limits are still in place for the Distance Matrix API:

  • Maximum of 25 origins or 25 destinations per request.
  • Maximum 100 elements per server-side request.
  • Maximum 100 elements per client-side request.
  • 1000 elements per second (EPS), calculated as the sum of client-side and server-side queries.

Terms of Use Restrictions

For information on terms of use, see policies for the Distance Matrix API, and the License Restrictions section of the Google Maps Platform Terms of Service.

Manage Your Cost of Use

To manage your cost of use of the Google Maps Platform APIs, you can set daily limits to all requests to any billable API.

To view or change daily billable limits for the Distance Matrix API, do the following:

  1. Go to the Distance Matrix API Quotas page in the Google Cloud Platform Console.
