My travel and accommodation expenses for January 2013 were as follows:

Hotels – I stayed 12 nights in hotels in London with a total cost of £1419, average cost £118 per night compared to a limit of £150.

Train fares – I made 3 return journeys  and 1 single journey to London with total cost of £295, average return journey cost of £84. The maximum claim per return  journey under the rules is £146. The journeys were all standard class except 2 advance single first class tickets – these were the same cost as the standard off peak return I typically use.

Tube fares – £17

Car parking at East Midlands parkway station – £81

Mileage claim – £95
