Finding your recent Google Maps usage
Although most of our clients use Google Maps for free due to their generous monthly free credit, it’s still a good idea to keep an eye on your usage to avoid any surprises.
You can easily check your recent usage on the Google Maps dashboard. To get started, open this link to view the overview of your Google Maps services.
Under billing, you’ll see a graph of your recent usage:
The grey area of the bars indicate usage that is covered by Google’s free credit - you won’t be charged for this portion.
The dashed red line indicates the monthly free usage limit. If a part of any bar is red, this indicates usage over the free credit amount, and this portion will be billed to your credit card at the end of the month.
For a more granular breakdown of your usage, or to view a longer period of time, you can click the Go to Maps billing report link underneath the chart.
When viewing the detailed report, please note that usage covered by the free credit is hidden by default. To show your total usage, untick the Discounts checkbox in the Filters panel on the right side of the page:
To help keep an eye on your Google Maps usage, you can also consider setting up billing alerts to receive email notifications when your usage passes a threshold, and/or setting up quotas to limit your usage.
