The latest wheeze here is that you cannot claim for duty travel if you do not have Business use on your car insurance. I do so I'm OK jack - but will MOD pay the difference for those that do not , or just take the hit in extra payments to Hertz ? The other half of this was when offering to use my car I was told that I could not because "There is a white fleet car and driver that can take you. You will have to use that because it costs nothing...." or words to that effect. So tommorow morning I will get chauffeur driven to a course 3.5 hours drive away - and a hire car back next friday.... Let me think. Car plus Driver plus 300 mile round trip, plus hire car for 150 mile one way trip. Got to save the tax-payer money compared to giving me 23p a mile instead hasn't it...... Are we INSANE ? The system seems hell-bent on putting money into the hands of Hertz, and as for having civvy drivers on the staff to ferry people about, I despair.
