Can I Only Claim for My Own Car?
Yes, that’s right. For example, if you’re a locum and you need to travel across the community to visit patients, as long as you are using your own car, you’ll be able to get a refund.
Actually, it doesn’t even have to be a car, it could be any type of vehicle you use. Scooter, van, bicycle or motorcycle, you can still take advantage of mileage allowance.
However, if the NHS or your private employer already reimburses you 45p per mile that you’ve travelled, you won’t be able to get tax relief. It’s also the same if you’re part of a company car scheme.
