Frequently Asked Questions

Can I try before buying? What is the Google Maps Platform free $200 monthly credit?

Google Maps Platform offers a free $200 monthly credit for Maps, Routes, and Places (see Billing Account Credits). With the $200 monthly credit, the vast majority of customers find their use cases are completely free. You won't be charged until your usage exceeds $200 in a month.

Note that the Maps Embed API, Maps SDK for Android, and Maps SDK for iOS currently have no usage limits and are free (usage of the API or SDKs is not applied against your $200 monthly credit).

Can I use the Google Cloud Platform $300 free trial with Google Maps Platform?

Yes, you can (see Billing Account Credits). For other credits, restrictions may apply (see Google Maps Platform Billing).

Why is a credit card or billing account required? How do know I won't get charged?

We ask for your credit card or billing account to cover any amount you spend over the $200 monthly free credit. You can set quotas or limits on your daily requests to ensure sudden increased usage doesn't exceed your budget or cause an unexpected bill. To learn how to set daily limits, see Google Maps Platform Billing.

What is a request?

Requests can either be calls to the API, or load events of maps or panoramas. User interactions like zooming or panning are not charged. See Google Maps Platform Billing.

What is the pricing after the free monthly credit?

Detailed pricing information for Maps, Routes, and Places is available at Google Maps Platform Billing.

How can I estimate my total monthly bill?

Review our pricing sheet and then use our pricing and usage matrix to estimate your monthly costs.

Am I eligible for volume pricing discounts?

Usage above 100K monthly requests is automatically discounted by 20%. Businesses with high-volume usage over 500K monthly requests should contact us for volume pricing discounts, enterprise-grade customer support, and/or offline contracts.
