Halocho # 487 - How far must one travel to say Tefilat HaDerech?

One does not say Tefilat HaDerech unless the trip is one Parsa (~4 Km / ~2.5 miles) long - outside the city.

Preferably Tefilat HaDerech should be said during the first Parsa of the journey.

If forgotten, Tefilat HaDerech can be said as long as one still has at least one Parsa to travel before one's destination city or overnight resting place.
