So I work at Location A in the UK and have done for 2 years, it is about 10 miles from home so each week my commute is roughly 100 miles.
I have been told for 1 week I need to go and work at a different site at Location B which is 40 miles from my home so the commute would be around 400 miles.
Can I ask my company for a company car for 1 week so that I am not adding extra wear and tear to my vehicle and adding extra mileage? Can I ask my company to reimburse the fuel costs for the extra 300 miles I will be travelling as well?
Location B is another company which is unrelated to my company. During this week my company at Location A will still continue to pay my salary with no input from the company at Location B.
My contract says that I will be based at Location A most of the time but it may be required for me to travel to other locations as part of my job.
I don't have an issue with going to Location B but I'd would rather not have to use my vehicle for it.
