The new price model for Google Maps

Since summer 2018 Google has switched its Google Maps service to the Google Maps Platform. As a result, a billing account is required in every case - regardless of whether or not the integrated map is used commercially.

The Google Maps Platform is part of the Google Cloud Platform. Featuring Google Maps, Places and Routes, it provides a dependable basis for individual map applications. Each of these three Google Maps services is based on specific APIs and SDKs.

Here you will find information about the pricing model and the benefits we offer you as a Google Cloud Premier Partner.


Billing and price advantages

With Maps, Places and Routes, the Google Maps Platform offers an optimal basis for individual map applications. Each of these three Google Maps services is based on specific APIs and SDKs. For using these, Google provides each user with a monthly credit of US$200. Any use of Google Maps services beyond this amount will be charged on the basis of usage through a user account.

There are two ways to use Google Maps Platform as a customer: through Google directly or through a Google Partner. If you deal directly with Google, billing is in US dollars and by credit card only. If you use the Google Maps Platform through Ubilabs as a certified Google Cloud Premier Partner, you pay against a monthly invoice.

We are your contact for DACH. As a longstanding Google Cloud Premier Partner we can advise you on using the Google Maps platform effectively and assist you in the transition to the current version. In addition, you benefit from our many years of expertise in map applications and gain access to special pricing conditions.
