Here's how to get directions to multiple places on Google Maps

Handy if you need to stop at different places for the one journey.

SOMETIMES YOU WILL need to make multiple stops when you’re travelling from one place to another, so you might be interested to know that on Google Maps, you can add three or more destinations to the directions list, turning it into one large journey.

To do this, you will need to be on the desktop version of Google Maps (there’s no real way to do this on iOS or Android alone) so search for directions like normal.

Then when you have entered the two locations in, you will see a plus icon underneath them. Clicking on this will allow you to add in a third destination or more, and you can drag them around in case the order isn’t correct.


Google Maps multiple locations

Now you can figure out how long it will take you to go from say Dublin to Cork and then to Galway.

Of course, there are some limitations. You won’t be able to factor in a departure or arrival time, and there’s no way to send this information to your phone at the moment, but you will know how much time you’ll be spending on the road.
