Star system, void, star system.

Warp 8 is 1024 C, while warp 7 is 656 times the speed of light.

warp 7 is almost 1/2 as slow as warp 8.

It's true that they might be trying to get to where ever they're going quickly, but it's also true that they can plan their journeys to only arrive in really troublesome points like the borders to empires, starbases and the rims of solar systems when Janeway is awake and MOST of the "good" crew is awake and the "losers" are asleep, just by pushing the engines sometimes and giving them a break others.
