If teaching or accompanying outside Trowbridge there will be a minimum travel fee of £3/lesson/rehearsal/exam etc. For longer distances, the present rate is 30p/mile. If the student/client can provide return transportation, then the fee will be waived. If there are 2 or more students/clients at the same venue, then the travel fee will be divided equally between them.
