My travel and accommodation expenses for May 2011 were as follows:

Hotels – I stayed 11 nights in hotels in London with a total cost of £843, average cost £76 per night compared to a limit of £150. This low average was due to using a loyalty offer for free nights.

Train fares – I made 3 return journeys from East Midlands Parkway to London with total cost of £208, average return journey cost of £70. The maximum claim per return  journey under the rules is £138. The journeys were all standard class.

Tube fares – £14

Car parking at East Midlands parkway station – £77

My mileage claim was 207 miles which equalled £93.15.

The full details of the claims will be published by IPSA in due course
