When do you use on time and when in time ? Difference between in time and on time

5 Answers


on time - punctual

in time - soon enough


OK, for example if you have a date with someone in the park and you arrived before the specific time for a while you say "I arrived on time" .. otherwise you have just arrived in your specific time you say "just in time" .. got it ??

I can only think of "in time" ever being used with the phrase "just in time." Otherwise, "on time" is almost always used.


On time means punctual.
