A good perk of being a trainee is that whilst you are completing your Level 1 qualification and receiving a training allowance, you can claim back your bus tickets for your journeys to and from work and college. There are a few little things you must do to claim which are:
- Buy a ticket that is the least expensive option i.e a weekly ticket rather than separate tickets
- Keep your tickets and hand them in every week at college to claim the money back
- The first £5.00 of the bus ticket is paid for by yourself but the remaining amount of the ticket will be reimbursed to you
If you do not catch a bus because you drive to work and college, you can also claim back a percentage of your petrol money if you live a certain distance from your placement and from the college.
