Personal travel budget calculator

Calculations below demonstrate the £ value of your Personal Travel Budget (PTB) (Column G)

Calculations are based on a distance measurement (miles) from home to school/college (using Google Maps shortest driving distance) (Column A)

4 journeys per day (outward journey: home to school/college to home and inward journey: home to school/college to home) (Column B)

190 days per academic year (5 days per week x 38 weeks per academic year) (Column C)

Mileage rate: 45 pence per mile for all miles up to 10,000 per academic year (number of miles shown in Column E)

Mileage rate: 25 pence per mile for all miles in excess of 10,000 per academic year (number of miles shown in Column F)

Please note: should your child's attendance vary from the example used (190 days), an adjustment is required to the calculations below.
