Can time run fast enough to “speed up” inter-galactic space travel?

I understand that according to Einstein’s theory of relativity, time runs faster when the “force of gravity” is reduced. Does this mean that in space, between the galaxies, time runs fast enough to “speed up” inter-galactic space travel?

  1. Sorry, I don’t think this answers my question.

  2. I noticed that my question wasn’t answered directly but you referred me to your answer to another question, i.e. “Will humans ever be able to travel around the cosmos as in Star Trek?”.

    I am aware that to travel at the speed of light would require a lot of energy. The point of my question was that if time speeds up, then it may not be necessary to travel at or beyond the speed of light. I would specifically like to know to what extent time would be speeded up between the galaxies.
