The Google Maps Roads API enforces usage limits to prevent abuse and/or repurposing of the API. These limits may be changed in the future without notice. Additionally, we enforce a request rate limit to prevent abuse of the service. If you exceed these limits, the Google Maps Roads API may stop working for you temporarily. If you continue to exceed the limits, your access to the API may be blocked.

Increase your Quota by Enabling Pay-as-you-go Billing

The standard Google Maps Roads API supports up to 100,000 requests daily. A project will be restricted to the complimentary 2,500 per-day-limit until you enable billing on the project. Once billing has been enabled, if you exceed 2,500 requests in a day, you will be billed at $0.50 USD / 1000 additional requests, up to 100,000 daily.

The maximum billable limit defaults to 100,000 requests per day. You can change this limit by clicking the edit icon next to the requests per day quota on the Quotas page of the API in the Google API Console.

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

Google charges you at the beginning of each month for the previous month's activity, using your specified payment method.
