Directions API – Nutzung und Abrechnung

The Directions API uses a pay-as-you-go pricing model. Directions API requests generate calls to one of two SKUs depending on the type of request: basic or advanced. Along with the overall Google Terms of Use, there are usage limits specific to the Directions API. Manage your costs and usage with tools available in the Google Cloud Console.

How the Directions API is billed

The Directions API uses a pay-as-you-go pricing model. The Google Maps Platform APIs and SDKs are billed by SKU. Usage is tracked for each SKU, and any API or SDK may have more than one product SKU. Cost is calculated by

SKU usage × Price per each use

Use our Pricing and Usage calculator to estimate your usage cost per API or SDK. For qualifying Google Maps Platform SKUs, a $200 USD Google Maps Platform credit is available each month for each billing account. This credit is automatically applied1 to the qualifying SKUs.

A Directions Advanced SKU is charged for a Maps JavaScript API’s Directions Service or a Directions API request that uses one or more of the following:

  • 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 Directions 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.
    • The request does not include stopover waypoints. If the request includes waypoints, prefix each waypoint with via: to influence the route but avoid stopovers. For example,
      &waypoints=via:San Francisco|via:Mountain View|...
  • More than 10 waypoints (between 11 and 25).
  • Waypoints optimization. The optimize parameter is set to true for waypoints. For example,
    &waypoints=optimize:true|San Francisco|Mountain View|...
  • Location modifiers. When you use the following location modifiers to indicate how drivers should approach a particular location:
    • side_of_road
    • heading

Manage your cost of use

To manage your cost of use of the Google Maps Platform APIs, set daily quota limits on all requests to any billable API. Daily quotas are reset at midnight Pacific time.

To view or change quota limits for the Directions API:

  1. In the Cloud Console, open the Google Maps Platform Quotas page.
  2. Click the APIs drop-down and select the Directions API.
  3. To view the quota limits, scroll down to the Requests card.
    A table lists the quota names and limits.
  4. To change a quota limit, click the Edit icon for that limit.
    In the dialog that appears, in the Quota Limit field, enter the preferred billable daily quota limit (up to the quota limit, if any, specified by Google) and select Save.

If your API usage reaches your billable quota limit on any given day, your application will not be able to access the API for the remainder of that day.

  1. Users in India must create a Google Cloud Platform billing account before creating a Google Maps Platform billing account to receive the Maps Platform credit.
