Although it is not compulsory, most companies in The Netherlands reimburse the cost for your daily commuting to work. The policy regarding the amount to be compensated for public and private transport varies from company to company.
When travelling by private transport it is common to receive €0.19 cents per KM up to a certain KM distance per day. The KM distance per day is once again decided by the company. When travelling by public transport companies request invoices/receipts of your travel costs. The policy regarding travel expenses will be stated in your Assignment that you sign with us.
