I am in contact with a supplier who gave her quote and then said travel expenses which will be no more then €80
I replied (at this stage not knowing where she was from) could we cap the travel at €50, meaning if it reached fifty it wouldnt go anymore but if it was less we would be charged less. She agreed and has since sent a receipt for the deposit stating full amount due including the €50 ( no depending on travel)
She is travelling from Rathmines to Trim, Co. Meath. Not sure what others think but I think €50 is a bit much for travelling an hour each way. Esp considering were paying her €400 for her service. I know its only €50 but still every cent counts these days.
Just looking for others opinions please??
seems a lot to me for quite a short distance. the only travel expense im paying is on my cake which is €50 coming from Galway though so dont mind as its quite far and still works out cheaper than the quote i got for a cake in dublin.
Thanks that. No one else has charged travel expenses (well declared it at least) so I don't know what's the usual.
Very expensive IMO - Our singer charged us €50 to travel to a location which is 4 hours from where she is based in Dublin (it probably took her longer as she didn't know where she was going!!)
IMO thats too much!
Thanks ladies. gonna send them an email now and see what they say.
I emailed her and she apologised for the confusion saying that it wouldn't be the 50 but more like 20 which is ok. Glad I asked though in case she just went ahead and charged the fifty. Thanks for all your replies as they gave me the confidence to email.
