I've been invited for an interview at a company's main office. They offer a (fixed) travel reimbursement based on travel distance from your home address.
I had a trip planned to my parent's house that happens on the date of the interview, so I will travel from their place to the company. Their house is perhaps half the distance to the company (but still in the range of several hundred kilometers). Seen on a map going through their house would be a massive detour from my home address.
Is it ethical to not disclose that my travel distance happens to be shorter than expected?
- The travel home was planned before the interview was arranged.
- I would have needed to travel the longer distance had it not been for the trip that I have already paid myself.
