Only one ship has gone faster than this, USS Enterprise, NCC-1701-A travelled to the centre of the galaxy in 6.1hours from Nimbus 3. Approx 30,000 ly and almost twice the speed of the Enterprise in STID.

The Enterprise in TOS and TAS visited the rim of the galaxy twice ("Where No Man..." and "By Any Other Name"), and the centre of the galaxy ("Magicks of Megas Tu") like it was nothing. By Voyager's standards, they would have been lifelong trips.

The Enterprise NX-01 visited Kronos in a couple of days at warp 4.

The Enterprise-E jumped from the Romulan Neutral Zone to Earth in a blink in First Contact.

DS9 crew hopped to Earth, Bajor, Romulus, Kronos and Cardassia in the space of a scene break.

There are more examples on Wikipedia and Memory Alpha. Excepting Voyager, technical manuals and the novelverse, ultrafast warp speeds are the rule, not the exception.
Star Trek Imponderables, fun mashups of Trek's biggest continuity errors! Ep1, Ep2 and Ep3
