Hi, I have been asked to quote a couple for their daughters christening, but I am unsure of what to charge.
I have photographed several christenings before and have charged £150 for coverage.
This christening is 85 miles away- does anyone have any advice on what to charge for travel? Realisticly I will be around 4hrs for the round trip.

Google map a rough route from start to finish to get your mileage and then set a realistic price per mile to ensure your costs are covered.
I would say charge them a set rate for the actually Christening (dont forget editing time etc) and then add the mileage on top so you are being up front and honest about the travel charges.
You need to charge £0.50 per mile as a minimum, to affray total motoring costs.

Looks like I am well out of date re cost per mile. Have a look at http://www.theaa.com/resources/Documents/pdf/motoring-advice/running-costs/petro... This is for petrol cars but there is a similar sheet for diesels.
40p-50p per mile is about right and will cover most economical cars with a little left for wear and tear , and its best to add this on so they realise its not part of the cost of the photography, I would say 150.00 for the actual christening and post production sounds about right too.
60 pence a mile is nearer plus £20 an hour whilst driving.
Great thankyou very much, I was thinking about 45p/mile so please thats what others think!
