Travel Tip of the Week: travelmath.com

This week’s travel tip is about a neat site which helps you calculating trip related information. The site can calculate flying and drive time and distance between different cities. This was also the reason why I found this page. I used the Great Circle Mapper before to calculate the flying distance between cities.  The problem was I needed to know the flying time to calculate different routes and how long it would take to get to my destination.

But Travelmath can do even more than just calculating drive and flying time and distance between cities. Travelmath can also tell you if it’s more efficient to drive or fly as well or the cost of a drive, stopping points along a route or the halfway point between two places. The calculator can be fed with your specific values

Here an example for the calculation if you should drive or fly.

Drive or Fly between San Francisco and Los Angeles?

You can change all the values in bold blue characters to optimize the search for your needs. This gives you a pretty great and detailed info for your trip.
