A Client wants me to travel to the Netherlands for a series of meetings. Besides travel and accommodations, how much should my per diem be?

I would calculate a flat rate for 8 hour work day (8 x hourly rate), inform the client that he would have to pay separately for anything on top of these 8 hours and charge the same rate for travelling because during this time you cannot do other work. If travelling takes half a day, charge for half a day, but start charging from the moment you step out of your house.

HTH,
Burrell

Your dinner & lunch is normally paid for as well if you eat out with the client.

The golden rule of business travel is to keep all your receipts

Per diem Jan 6, 2006

Per diem is not your fee, it is just an amount that mainly would cover your meals so just calculate what your meals should cost per day, but also take into account any meals that might be provided.

Probably not a large amount.
