    Question Charges for travelling

    How do I work out what to charge a client who wants me to go to various shops around JHB and assess vehicles. I charge my time at X per hour, but how do I work out my vehicle costs.

    Have a look at the AA website for the travel calculators. It could assist you.

    Yep, just take your AA cost per KM and add that once you know how far you've gone/going.

    And for planning ahead you can use Google Maps to enter your start and end destinations. This gives you a nice estimate of the distances for quotation purposes ...


    Off course distance change drastically when you add a couple of stops in one trip ... hopefully you can manage the trip order and keep the kilos down ....


    DO consider increasing your insurance to cover "used for work" as well .... private insurance may refute claims if they find out your were doing business trips ...

    And the AA can email you a certificate if you need it for tax purposes or to support your claim to your client
    There is no such thing as inclement weather, only poor selection of clothing.... or Vehicle
