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

Drive Time Calculator Sign

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 or kilometers 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.

The calculator also includes an optional Driving Distance Calculator that will calculate the distance between two cities, addresses, or points, plus map your route and give you turn-by-turn directions.

And finally, this car and truck driving time calculator will estimate your fuel costs, tell you what date and time you will arrive at your destination -- including any time zone variations, plus show you what effect driving faster or slower will have on your arrival time.

What Time Do I Have To Leave To Get There On Time?

Once you have used the travel time calculator on this page to get the hours and minutes of your journey, use the following calculator to estimate what time you will have to leave by to get to your destination by a specified time and date.

Note that for every hour you expect to encounter metropolitan rush hour traffic (6am to 10pm or 4pm to 8pm), you may want to add at least 1 hour to your drive time.

Adjust Calculator Width:

Move the slider to left and right to adjust the calculator width. Note that the Help and Tools panel will be hidden when the calculator is too wide to fit both on the screen. Moving the slider to the left will bring the instructions and tools panel back into view.

Also note that some calculators will reformat to accommodate the screen size as you make the calculator wider or narrower. If the calculator is narrow, columns of entry rows will be converted to a vertical entry form, whereas a wider calculator will display columns of entry rows, and the entry fields will be smaller in size ... since they will not need to be "thumb friendly".

Show/Hide Popup Keypads:

Select Show or Hide to show or hide the popup keypad icons located next to numeric entry fields. These are generally only needed for mobile devices that don't have decimal points in their numeric keypads. So if you are on a desktop, you may find the calculator to be more user-friendly and less cluttered without them.

Stick/Unstick Tools:

Select Stick or Unstick to stick or unstick the help and tools panel. Selecting "Stick" will keep the panel in view while scrolling the calculator vertically. If you find that annoying, select "Unstick" to keep the panel in a stationary position.

If the tools panel becomes "Unstuck" on its own, try clicking "Unstick" and then "Stick" to re-stick the panel.
