Just a heads up Bearguy, I was told (after I’d done the arc) that taxi fares weren’t included in the expenses. I was refunded the £70 train journey but not my £20 taxis! Sent a salty email back as obviously I wasn’t made aware of this but they weren’t very helpful. Still fuming about it nearly 4 months on 😒

They took ages to send the form to me, I had to ring a few times to get that sorted. I got the money back about a month after I sent the form off, as I missed the end of month cut-off period

Haha cheeky like ! That’s still part of the travel !

If the assessments weren’t held miles away from the train station then I wouldn’t have needed a £25 taxi journey.

Over a year?! Wow. I thought 3 months was bad 😂 I'm calling about something else on Monday so I'll ask them then.
