Time estimate is super optimistic – can we trust ABRP?

Question

We're planning a route from Stockholm (Sweden) to Milan. It seems that ABRP's estimate for time driving from Stockholm to Copenhagen is off by 1 hour.

ABRP:

Stockholm - Värnamo: 3:42
Transit: 0:12
Värnamo - Copenhagen: 2:30

Total: 6:24

Google Maps:

Stockholm - Värnamo: 4:22
Värnamo - Copenhagen: 3:04

Total: 7:26

 

I played around with departure times to compensate for traffic and Google Maps gives ranges.

The lowest end still being higher than ABRP. This makes us wonder whether we can trust ABRP's distance calculations at all. We're planning a long trip and almost 20% give or take makes a huge difference.

Is there a way to add a safety margin to ABRP's calculations?
