You can claim travel-related expenses, as long as the travel is wholly and exclusively for business purposes and isn't considered 'ordinary commuting'. HMRC defines a commute as a trip that you make between your home and a permanent workplace.
You can claim for:
- costs associated with running a car or vehicle, such as fuel expenses, parking fees and tolls.
- transport fares for flights, as well as rides taken via train, bus, taxi and ferries
- meals and accommodation for overnight business trips
You can claim "reasonable" food and drink expenses if:
- You're making an occasional business trip outside of your normal pattern of travel
- You're staying overnight, and are also claiming accommodation costs
- Your trade is, by nature itinerant
