Travel & Overage Fees Clause
This provision states that the client will pay a certain amount per mile outside of a specific zip code (which more than likely is the zip code you live in). Generally, if you’ve done your pricing correctly, your standard session fee should include wear and tear on your vehicle, fuel, and use of your time for travel up to a certain distance (say 10 miles), but this provision covers your expenses if you have to travel further than that. And the fees you charge for travel are completely up to you and what works best for your business.
The reason I have it written this way is because I’m not going to charge travel fees to someone who lives two miles down the road. But that’s just me. If you want to charge a flat travel fee, that’s fine. But my recommendation – not legal, just business – is not to have fees all over the place. It’s a hassle to track and can eat up your administrative time.
