When the postcode or journey locations are entered, we use Google Maps to automatically select a preferred route and distance travelled. Google Maps uses historical and live traffic data to calculate the best route.
This is a suggested route and distance by Google Maps and your ExpenseIn account gives you the ability to overwrite and change the distance travelled, if it is inconsistent with the miles you actually travelled.
You can ask your Finance Team or Account Administrator to turn off Google Maps distance calculation for your Company Account.
If you have travelled a different route to the one suggested by Google Maps, we would recommend you alter the mileage figure and make a note of the variation on your expense using “Add Additional Information” at the bottom of the expense screen.
When entering a return journey by clicking the Return Journey tick box, the system will calculate the distance from the last stop back to the start location. This calculation is performed by Google Maps. Google Maps uses historical and live traffic data to calculate the best route for the return journey to the start location.
Please note: A journey from A – B is not always the same as B – A as there may well be a difference in return journeys.
