Other Modes of Travel

For all other modes of ground transport, for example taxi to the airport or train from airport to hotel, select them below.
Please also include your local daily travel, if appropriate, to and from home or the event/hotel.


If your trip requires any flights, please enter details below.

Start typing the first 3 letters of the airport or city and then select from the list as it appears.
Then select the type of flight and class. Once airports are selected the miles will be calculated automatically and you have the option to check the “return” flight box.
If airport selections do not appear, this may be due to a poor internet connection, but you can still manually type in the flight air miles directly into the value field.
For any flights that involve a hub please enter each leg of the journey separately.


If your trip includes any hotel stays, please select them below. Where background data exists you may also be able to select a star rating as appropriate. If that option is not available the average data set for that country will be applied.

If the country you are travelling to is not available, please select what you believe is the closest appropriate equivalent.
