Reduce your Google geocoding costs

Using open data can significantly reduce your geocoding costs

Are you spending too much on geocoding?

If you are using only Google, the answer is almost certainly YES.

What can you do about it?

For many use cases open data will meet your needs just as well.

OpenCage provide a highly-available, well documented, simple to understand, affordable geocoding API based on open data.

Use our API to completely replace Google, or in combination with Google.

Customers typically cut their geocoding costs by 80-90%.

OpenCage is highly affordable
