I work from home, which is about 2-2.5 hours away by train costing about 20-25€ euros for one direction.
For regular work, I never have to visit the office.
For meetings with clients I may sometimes have to.
Now my boss (also the owner) said that for 2-3 trips to the office per year he does not find necessary for the company to compensate me. Everything beyond that he has left unclear.
I feel just agreeing would leave me in a bad spot.
My concerns are that (1) for these three visits there is a very high incentive for me and only for me to try to avoid meetings with customers and that (2) what happens beyond these three times is unclear and would again require me bringing it up and negotiating.
1) What are reasonable models for compensating this kind of travel I could bring up?
2) How do I best frame that I want to at least split the money and time disincentives between me and the company?
