My travel and accommodation expenses for September 2012 were as follows:

Hotels – I stayed 7 nights in hotels in London with a total cost of £663, average cost £95 per night compared to a limit of £150.

Train fares – I made 4 return journeys  to London with total cost of £342, average return journey cost of £85. The maximum claim per return  journey under the rules is £146. The journeys were all standard class except for 2 advance first class single tickets – these were cheaper than the typical off peak standard return ticket I purchase.

Tube fares – £12

Car parking at East Midlands parkway station – £83

Mileage claim – £119

The full details of the claims are published by IPSA.
