How we calculate the private vehicle travel reimbursement rate

The reimbursement rate is based on methodology recommended by the motoring organisation the Royal Automobile Club of Victoria (RACV).  This methodology calculates the "average" running costs and vehicle depreciation associated with travelling extra distances for defined purposes associated with a TAC claim.

The running costs are made up of the following factors:

  • Tyres
  • Service/repairs
  • Fuel

The estimation of fuel costs is based on the average cost per litre of unleaded petrol for Melbourne during the three month period immediately prior to the RACV report as published by the AAA website.

The TAC will review and update this rate annually based on the recommendations received from the RACV.
