Per Diem Rates - USA

If you intend to hire a car, you should claim on the basis of receipts and not claim a per diem as well. The per diem rate includes travel and you cannot claim for both a per diem and car hire.

Per diems given below should only be claimed when staying in a hotel; please see the per diem claim form for guidance re other types of accommodation.

Per diems are based on meals, tea/coffee and travel; you must indicate on the form if these are provided for you. If a substantial proportion of your meals are provided then it is not appropriate to claim a per diem and you should claim on a receipts basis instead.

Please see guidance re hourly rates.

All rates below are in US $.

Per diems are not available for accommodation in the USA and thus accommodation costs should be reclaimed on a receipts basis.
