Whenever you need to get difference between two dates in hours in laravel 5 then you can get easily using Carbon. Laravel by default provide Carbon class. Carbon class throught you can calculate difference between two dates in hours.

In Following example you can see, we have a two dates, first $to variable and second one $from variable. Carbon class diffInhours function using you can get difference between two dates. I hope you will find your solution.

Example:

$to = \Carbon\Carbon::createFromFormat('Y-m-d H:s:i', '2015-5-5 3:30:34');

$from = \Carbon\Carbon::createFromFormat('Y-m-d H:s:i', '2015-5-5 9:30:34');

$diff_in_hours = $to->diffInHours($from);

print_r($diff_in_hours);// Output: 6
