Drive Time Calculator to Calculate
Driving Times, Trip Distances, ETAs, and More!

The Drive Time Calculator on this page will calculate driving times based on distance, average speed, and number and length of expected stops.

This free online Driving Times Calculator will calculate the number of hours and minutes it will take you to arrive at your destination based on the number of miles you plan to drive, combined with the average speed (MPH or KMH) you expect to drive and the number and lengths of stops you expect to make.

Plus, unlike other similar calculators, this calculator will even estimate what date and time you will arrive at your destination -- including any time zone variations.

Don't know the distance you're trip will cover?

No problem! The Drive Time Calculator now includes an optional Distance Calculator.

Simply enter the starting and ending addresses and let the calculator estimate the number of miles/kilometers between the two. You can even opt to see an interactive map of the route and/or the turn-by-turn driving directions. Super cool!

Plus, if you're using the latest version of your web browser, the Distance Calculator will even save your addresses for the next time you visit the calculator. This will save you from having to look-up and re-type addresses you use on a regular basis.

Want to account for expected stops along the way?

No problem! The calculator allows you to add up to nine stops. You can either enter an average time for all stops, or you can set the time for each stop separately.

Want to know cost of gas for the trip?

The calculator has you covered. Just enter your vehicle's fuel rating (MPG or KPL) and the cost per unit of fuel and the calculator will estimate your fuel price for the trip.

What difference will driving faster or slower have?

The travel time calculator will even generate a driving times comparison chart in customizable speed increments, so you can see what effect driving faster or slower will have on your destination arrival time.

Wonder what you average speed was after fact? Print out the comparison chart and cross reference your actual arrival time to find your actual average speed.

Ever wonder how much time that slow car you get stuck behind is costing you? Now you can actually figure out the answer!

What about time zone changes?

No problem! The calculator allows you to add or subtract hours based on the destination time zone, and the comparison chart will list the arrival times in both the starting and ending time zone.

With that, let's use the Driving Time Calculator to not only estimate how long your trip will take, but also your estimated time of arrival.

If Google Maps loaded correctly and the entered addresses are found, clicking the Calculate Driving Distance button will load the estimated driving distance into the Trip distance field in the Drive Time Calculator. You also have the option of including a route map that includes draggable location markers.

Drive Time Calculator

Trip distance: If you used the optional Driving Distance Calculator, and it worked correctly, this field should already be filled in. If not, enter the number of units (miles or kilometers) you plan on driving.

Average speed: Select the average speed you plan to drive in miles or kilometers per hour. Or, if you want to estimate travel times for speeds greater than 200 (jet, future commuter rail, Amtrak, high speed trains, etc.), enter the higher speed in the other text field on this line. Or, if one or more segments of your trip have significantly different speed limits, be sure you have entered the Trip distance in the previous row, and then click the button in this row to open the Average Speed Calculator. There you can enter up to 8 different distances, each with their own separate speed limits.

Departure date and time: If you want to have the drive time calculator calculate your estimated date and time of arrival, select your departure date and time.

Optional Entries and Settings: Click the button to expand the optional settings. These include stop times, time zone, fuel cost, and speed comparison settings.

Stops: If you would like to adjust the drive time based on any expected stops, you can:

  • Enter the total number of minutes in the far right-hand field.
  • Select the number of stops and the average hours and minutes for each.
  • Edit each individual stop time (hour and minutes).
Note that changing the average hours and minutes will reset the individual stop fields to the average hours and minutes.

Compare average speed: The results will include a chart comparing the driving and arrival times at speeds above and below the average speed you entered. Change the select menus in this row if you wish to customize the chart.

Destination time zone: If your trip will cover more than one time zone, select the number of hours the destination time zone is ahead or behind the time zone of the starting location.

Fuel cost variables: If you would like the calculator to estimate your fuel cost for the trip, enter your vehicle's fuel usage rating and the cost per unit of fuel. Both fields must be filled in for the fuel cost to calculate.


Drive time: This is the number of hours and minutes (hours:minutes) it will take you to reach your destination.

Arrival date and time:: Based on your entries, this the estimated date and time you will arrive at your destination. If you indicated your destination is in a different time zone, this field will include the Destination Time Zone (DTZ) date and time in parenthesis.
