What we will pay
Approved rate 45p per mile for the first 10,000 miles and 25p per mile thereafter for motor cars or vans (excepting rental cars, approved rate being 15p per mile for all mileage).
Approval for reimbursement of mileage claims will only be given when one of the following reasons applies and is stated on the front of this form:
- public transport was not available
- apparatus or bulky items were carried
- the saving of time could be warranted
- the stated number of people travelling together made it economical
In circumstances where no rationale is provided for a mileage claim, or the rationale is deemed insufficient by the budget holder, the University reserves the right to reject said claim.
Taxi fares may also be claimed in the above circumstances.
Motorcycles, scooters and mopeds - approved rate 24p per mile for all mileage.
Bicycles – approved rate 20p per mile for all mileage.
As External Examiners complete their core duties remotely their place of work is their home address. Travel to any University of Essex campus is therefore not travel to their place of work and is accordingly not considered to be a taxable benefit.
