This is the correct answer and it means we have enough time available in order to relax.

The difference #3 (permalink) Mon Nov 07, 2011 21:33 pm   The difference
 

What is the difference between "to have time to kill" and "to have time to spare"?
I think "to have time to kill" means to do something else before doing what we have to do. For example: We have to take the bus, but it's late. For this reason, we go to have a coffee in a bar. Spending time in the bar, it's time to kill.
Instead, "to have time to spare" means, after finishing something, we can relax.
The latter time, it's time to spare.
Is it right?
