We would like to establish some travel per diems and allowances for meals, and we're interested in the policies or limits of other MAPP members.  Do you set a daily limit for meals and if so, what is this amount? If there is no daily limit, is there a limit or guideline for each meal? Does the employee have to be traveling away from home overnight to be reimbursed for meals?  Or is there an allowance for employees meals within a certain number of miles traveled from the office? We would really appreciate reviewing any travel reimbursement policies you may have.

Thanks,
Joy Hertlein

We allow $25/day if the employee stays at a hotel that provides breakfast.  This is a low number, but we have found it to be sufficient and no one has complained.  One thing that we do find is that it does not allow any room for purchasing alcohol.

Hi Joy,

Our company policy is $35 per day, regardless of distance traveled or whether an overnight stay is required.
