Reimbursement rate for airline miles

  • 1.  Reimbursement rate for airline miles

    Posted 24 days ago

    Anyone have experience with/a policy for reimbursement of a contractor who used airline miles to offset an otherwise expensive flight?  Google offers a couple of different sources with couple of different rates, ranging from 1.5 cents/mile (Time magazine), 1.7 cents (NerdWallet), 2 cents (Travel+Leisure), 1.4 cents (Lending Tree).  They're all in the same broad ball park, but if anyone's got an in-place policy so I'm not re-inventing this particular wheel, it is appreciated.

    On a potentially related note, if an employee used personal miles to book a convention hotel (or to bring down the cost of same), has anyone ever done any reimbursement for this, and if so, how did you paper it?

    Thanks in advance.
