There are two separate policies that govern travel expenses; one for paid staff and another for trips undertaken as part of a sport or society activity.
The two expenses systems are;
Staff Less than 80 miles
45p per mile
Staff over 80 miles
£29 plus the mileage at 10.5p per mile or the mileage at the casual user rates, whichever is the lowest amount.
Sport/Society Activity - Students
Flat rate of 25p per mile
60 miles : Staff = £27, Student = £15
120 miles : Staff = £35, Student = £30
180 miles : Staff = £44, Student = £45
Remember that almost all fuel reclaims are for under 120 miles - so staff almost always get paid more (& often don't have cars loaded up with equipment)
Figure correct as of April 2016
(HMRC recommended rate is 45p per mile regardless of distance)
Relisted as fail last time due to lack of votes (but more students voted for than against)
