English translation:out-of-district travel expenses
Explanation:
I think you'll have to be a bit creative here, but that's OK, since the author of the original is being a bit creative with the meaning of 'Standort'. Since you already have 'Reisespesen for Ort' and have accepted 'local travel expenses' (which seems reasonable), this one must be refer to travel expenses incurred outside of the (normal) district/area/territory of the person in question. If you stick to the conventional meaning of 'Standort', either you would have to assume that all travel expenses are incurred 'ausserhalb des Standorts' or that no such expenses could be incurred.
