Travelling from Home to your destination – what should I claim?

Key message points
         This guidance DOES NOT relate to journeys made from your Home to Base,
          different policies apply in these circumstances – see Bulletin 6 issued in Sept
          2007.

         When travelling direct between home and the place to be visited you should
          only claim for the distance that would have been travelled if the journey had
          started and finished at your designated base, OR THE DISTANCE ACTUALLY
          TRAVELLED IF THIS IS LESS.

         In the journey details column on the claim form enter the details of the actual
          journey completed starting from Home to your destination etc.

         Travelling from home to your destination is paid at your usual business miles
          rate i.e. regular user, lease car or standard user rate. Home to base mileage is
          paid at Public Transport Rate.

Further details

Official mileage is mileage which covers a journey undertaken in the course of carrying out
normal duties.

When travelling direct between home and the place visited you should only claim for the
distance that would have been travelled if the journey had started and finished at your
designated base, or the distance ACTUALLY TRAVELLED IF THIS IS LESS. This is
previously known as ‘Triangular Travel’.

For example,
If you are starting your journey from home and travelled 20 miles to your destination you
should calculate the number of miles from your base to your destination, if this is 15 i.e.
lower you can only claim 15 miles.
If on another journey you are starting from home and it is 20 miles to your destination and
when you calculate the number of miles from your base to your destination it is 8 miles you
should only claim the 8 miles. Obviously, this will be doubled if you complete a return
journey.
If on another journey you are starting from home and it is 20 miles to your destination and
when you calculate the number of miles from your base to your destination it is 40 miles you
can only claim 20 miles.
