Its because Toby doesn't pay for google maps to be displayed. The dev version of maps only gives you a certain amount of views before it cuts you off.

You should normally be under what the threshold for payment is. It depends on how your maps are implemented, but you get quite a lot of views for free. Check the calculator.

If you have to pay, I am going to assume that someone is exploiting it. No way you have that much usage.

Since Google changed their API usage few months ago, you need a linked credit card to your Google Cloud account.
The pricing has also increased but nothing prohibitive for a site like KF.
Check the capture attached or visit https://cloud.google.com/maps-platform/pricing/ for more detailse

Afaik openstreetmaps (osm.org) are free to use and especially when it comes to details in regions that are a little off the beaten path superior to Google Maps.

Have you tried osm?
