12  Upgrade

Accompanying travel

Lengthy flight

             (2)  An office holder who is entitled to travel economy class may upgrade to business class (for domestic and international travel) if the duration of the flight exceeds 5 hours.

13  Accompanied travel

             (1)  An office holder may be entitled to be accompanied by the office holder’s spouse or de facto partner for purposes relating to official business at Commonwealth expense when travelling within Australia or overseas in accordance with this instrument.

             (2)  Accompanied travel may occur only if the office holder’s employing authority certifies in writing that it is demonstrably in the interest of the Commonwealth, given the purpose of the travel, for the office holder to be accompanied by the office holder’s spouse or de facto partner.

             (3)  If the office holder’s spouse or de facto partner accompanies the office holder, the spouse or de facto partner may travel at the same class of travel as the office holder.

14  Agency travel providers

                   Office holders are encouraged to use their agency’s travel‑related preferred provider arrangements where these exist.

15  Frequent flyer points

                   Frequent flyer points accrued at the Commonwealth’s expense are not to be used for private purposes.

Part 4Travel expenses and travel allowance

Division 1General provisions for travel expenses and travel allowance

16  Payment of travel expenses and travel allowance

             (1)  If an office holder travels on official business which requires an overnight absence, travel expenses are to be met, and travel allowance is to be paid, in accordance with this Part.

Day travel

             (2)  No travel allowance is payable for travel on official business that does not require an overnight absence.

17  Accompanied accommodation costs

                   If:

                     (a)  the Commonwealth meets the travel costs of the office holder’s spouse or de facto partner accompanying the office holder in accordance with section 13 (accompanied travel); and

                     (b)  evidence is provided that there is a difference in cost between a single and double room in the commercial accommodation used;

the amount of the difference is to be added to the amount of travel allowance that would otherwise be paid.

18  No double payment

                   No payment of travel allowance or expenses is to be made under this instrument to the extent that the office holder claims or receives travel allowance or reimbursement of travel expenses under any other source or entitlement for the same travel.

Division 2Travel within Australia

19  Travel within Australia

                   This Division applies to travel on official business within Australia.

20  Travel allowance for travel within Australia

             (1)  For each overnight absence on travel for official business within Australia for which the office holder stays in commercial accommodation, the office holder is to be paid travel allowance, subject to this Part, at the rates in:

                     (a)  for travel to a capital city—Table 6A;

                     (b)  otherwise—Table 6B.

Note:          The rates in Tables 6A and 6B are intended to cover the costs of accommodation and meals, and incidental costs.

             (2)  Subject to this Part, the rates in Table 6A or 6B are to be paid to the office holder for each overnight absence regardless of the time of departure from, or arrival at, the office locality or home base.

21  Part payment of travel allowance

             (1)  If the cost of accommodation is met by an entity other than the office holder, the amount of travel allowance payable is the “Total” amount in Table 6C or 6D.

             (2)  If the cost of a meal or meals is met by an entity other than the office holder, the amount of travel allowance is to be reduced by the meal amount or amounts in Table 6C or 6D.

22  Non‑commercial accommodation

                   If the office holder does not stay in commercial accommodation, but stays in accommodation such as the home of a family member or friend, a rate of one third of the specified travel allowance is payable (rounded upwards to the nearest dollar).

23  Unavoidable higher accommodation cost

                   If the employing authority certifies that the office holder is required to obtain high cost accommodation, an additional payment may be made to the office holder in accordance with the following:

                     (a)  the requirement must be due to the unavailability of accommodation of a reasonable standard at a locality, which would have avoided this additional payment;

                     (b)  the additional payment is to be based on the excess cost of accommodation over the travel allowance rate (after deducting the relevant “Total” amount in Table 6C or 6D (meals and incidentals) from the travel allowance rate);

                     (c)  the additional payment is to be calculated on accommodation expenses and travel allowance for the entire trip.

24  Additional meals

             (1)  If an office holder is absent for a greater number of meal periods than that covered by the travel allowance payment (the rate nominally covers 3 meals per day) and provides evidence that actual meal costs exceeded the meal component for the absence, payment at the rates set out in Table 6C or 6D may be made for the additional meal or meals.

             (2)  Subject to certification by the employing authority, this may include meal periods on the day of return to an office holder’s home base or office locality where, ordinarily, no travel allowance would be payable.

Division 3Overseas travel

25  Travel allowance for overseas travel

Accommodation

             (1)  When travelling overseas on official business, an office holder is entitled to accommodation at Commonwealth expense. Accommodation is to be at a standard reasonably equivalent to that provided for the office holder in Australia.

Meals and incidentals

             (2)  An office holder travelling overseas on official business is to be paid, for meals and incidentals, the total meals and incidentals amounts set out in the taxation determination for the destinations in Table 9 of the taxation determination.

             (3)  For the purposes of subsection (2):

                     (a)  tier 1 office holders are to receive the amounts for the highest salary level specified in the taxation determination; and

                     (b)  tier 2 office holders are to receive the amounts for the middle salary level specified in the taxation determination; and

                     (c)  tier 3 office holders are to receive the amounts for the lowest salary level specified in the taxation determination.

Part 5Official travel by motor vehicle

  

26  Vehicle travel

             (1)  Subsection (3) applies to use of a vehicle for an office holder’s travel on official business where the agency does not supply the office holder with a vehicle that can be used for the purposes of the travel.

             (2)  However, if the office holder is provided with an agency vehicle at the office holder’s home base, subsection (3) does not apply to any journey commenced from the home base.

             (3)  The office holder may choose to hire a vehicle or use the office holder’s own vehicle to travel on official business where it is demonstrably in the interest of the Commonwealth to do so. In such circumstances the Commonwealth is to:

                     (a)  meet the cost of a rental vehicle; or

                     (b)  pay a motor vehicle allowance at the rate of 78 cents per kilometre where a private vehicle is used for the journey. Any private vehicle used for this purpose must be comprehensively insured.

Endnotes

Endnote 1—About the endnotes

The endnotes provide information about this compilation and the compiled law.

The following endnotes are included in every compilation:

Endnote 1—About the endnotes

Endnote 2—Abbreviation key

Endnote 3—Legislation history

Endnote 4—Amendment history

Abbreviation key—Endnote 2

The abbreviation key sets out abbreviations that may be used in the endnotes.

Legislation history and amendment history—Endnotes 3 and 4

Amending laws are annotated in the legislation history and amendment history.

The legislation history in endnote 3 provides information about each law that has amended (or will amend) the compiled law. The information includes commencement details for amending laws and details of any application, saving or transitional provisions that are not included in this compilation.

The amendment history in endnote 4 provides information about amendments at the provision (generally section or equivalent) level. It also includes information about any provision of the compiled law that has been repealed in accordance with a provision of the law.

Editorial changes

The Legislation Act 2003 authorises First Parliamentary Counsel to make editorial and presentational changes to a compiled law in preparing a compilation of the law for registration. The changes must not change the effect of the law. Editorial changes take effect from the compilation registration date.

If the compilation includes editorial changes, the endnotes include a brief outline of the changes in general terms. Full details of any changes can be obtained from the Office of Parliamentary Counsel.

Misdescribed amendments

A misdescribed amendment is an amendment that does not accurately describe how an amendment is to be made. If, despite the misdescription, the amendment can be given effect as intended, then the misdescribed amendment can be incorporated through an editorial change made under section 15V of the Legislation Act 2003.

If a misdescribed amendment cannot be given effect as intended, the amendment is not incorporated and “(md not incorp)” is added to the amendment history.
