For Traffic Service and Vector Map Render Service requests, one transaction is created using increments of 15 tile requests.

For Search Service, Route Service, Time Zone Service and Map Render Service requests other than Vector Map Tiles, each API call counts as a transaction.


  • As a specific example, let’s say that you consume the following quantities in a certain monthly billing period:

    • 300,000 transactions of Vector Map Tiles
    • 100,000 transactions of Raster Map
    • 50,000 transactions of Traffic Service
    • 20,000 transactions of Search Service

    In this billing period, you get 2,75,000 free transactions (2,50,000 for Maps and 25,000 for other services). Your total billable transactions will be:

    (400,000 total maps transactions – 2,50,000 free maps transactions) + (70,000 total other transactions – 25,000 free other transactions) = 195,000 transactions

    Your total bill for this monthly billing period will be:

    $-/1,000 transactions * 1,95,000 transactions = $-

  • The included free quantity may not apply to subscriptions associated with Azure credit offers and your account may be suspended if the spending limit is turned on. Learn more about the Azure spending limit and how to remove it.
