Do you charge for travel

Recommended Posts

My client will request that I meet at her office for a meeting from time to time as well as meeting at other locations. So far, I only charge for the time spent at the meeting. It takes me about 30 minutes to get to her office so I end up loosing an hour of driving to and from her office of work time.


Just wondering whether other VAs charge for travel to their client's office/meeting locations?


Thanks for the help!

Thank you for your comments.


When you bill the client, do you show the entry for the time travelled separately from the entry for the meeting or do you just add it to the total meeting time on the bill (ie: meeting with client 1.5 hours (and not mention that this includes travel)?

Denise you could do it either way. Personally I show it at the bottom as travel time/expenses. I also have written in my contract an extra expenses paragraph that outlines my travel costs.

It depends from person to person. Usually I charge according to the deal closed between me and the client. It comes out according to an understanding with the overall project cost, that the client is gonna bear.
