This cost includes the amount you pay each month for travel to work, appointments, for shopping or to social events.

If you drive you will need to add together the amount you usually use for petrol and the amount you pay for tax and insurance and repairs/ MOT (if you pay an annual payment you will need to divide this by 12). 

If you use public transport – work out how many journeys you will be making each month and how much these tickets will cost. 

To find out the cost of train journeys you can look on your local train operating companies’ website, ask at your local train station or use a website such as the train-line.

For taxis you can ring up the taxi company you will be using and ask how much they estimate your journey to cost. 

For buses you can look this up online or ring your local bus service.
