Transportation other than by the traveler's privately owned vehicle should be claimed on an actual expense basis. [Guide, Vol. 7, § 230.63.40(a)]
Counsel should be guided by the Judiciary Staff Travel Regulations
regarding rental car expenses. Applicable portions of those regulations
are described below:
- Reimbursement for rental car costs is permitted when the
authorizing official determines that the use of a rental car is more
advantageous to the judiciary than the use of a taxi, airport
limousine, or other mode of transportation.
- Refer to the Judiciary Staff Travel Regulations, Guide, Vol. 19, § 440.40.30
for further detail.
Travelers should exercise prudence in the selection of the least expensive rental vehicle necessary to adequately perform the official travel.
