Single Day Travel
Staff members are only eligible for meal allowances on same day travel when this travel exceeds 10 hours.
The allowance is set at a maximum of $60. The amount paid should be adjusted ($15 breakfast, $15 lunch, $30 dinner) if a meal has been included as part of the travel.
Where travel includes an overnight stay, your meal allowance may be claimed by including the amount in the Online Travel Plan.
Payment can be made by EFT prior to your departure. The allowance can also be paid upon your return, where it can be adjusted if any meals were provided while travelling.
