meals and incidental expenses

An “expenses rate” determined by the location of a traveller's temporary duty (TDY) assignment (the location/destination where the traveller actually performs TDY travel).

The meals portion covers expenses for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Incidental expenses include fees and tips to hotel staff, laundry, dry-cleaning or pressing of clothing, transportation between places of lodging/business and places where meals are taken, and telephone calls necessary to reserve lodging accommodations. Specifically excluded are alcoholic beverages and entertainment expenses, and any expenses incurred for other persons.
