Use the calculator at TravelMath.com enter U.S. or international locations by name, airport or ZIP code, and request driving, flight or walking distances. The result is given in mileage as well as in kilometers or nautical miles, and a map displays the route. Flight distance is shown in a straight line, commonly referred to as the distance "as the crow flies." For example, the flight distance between Boston, Massachusetts and Miami, Florida is 1,256 miles, while the driving distance is 1,494. Other available statistics include estimates of the travel time, the cost of driving, interesting stopping points along the way and the halfway point between the two cities.

Map producer Rand McNally hosts an online mileage calculator, maps, and a TripMaker navigation tool that helps drivers plan itineraries, find attractions and sync to a GPS navigator. Other sites that host distance calculators, such as MapQuest.com and WorldAtlas.com, also help travelers find lodging, determine currency exchange rates, and learn gas prices and weather conditions. Many travel-related sites offer mobile applications and allow users to print directions.
