If my gig is more than a couple hours away, depending, I advise them of a travel fee that starts at $100. For extensive travel, travel by boat, plane, train or time machine, travel requiring overnight stays, food, lodging is included in an per diem expense package based on how much the actual costs and investment of time outside actual production is involved. Except for the most well-heeled projects though, don’t expect a lot of straight-forward acceptance of these fees, in spite of the reality that they ARE legitimate costs to you.
