i only recently started to freelance. before february, i was working full time for a company that would send me wherever the clients wanted, etc. i believe they were charging "travel rates" which were undisclosed to me. i currently live in los angeles, for context on the following.
i have two similar questions:
-if the production is taking me to a non-local location, how should i adjust my day rate and kit rental for travel days (the 2 days of flying in and out of a city)? slash it in half? drop kit rental...?
-if the production is willing to pay for travel and accommodations in one of my local cities (e.g. atlanta) and is planning on paying full rate for the working days, should i charge for the travel days since i cannot work those days? and again, full rate or cut?
thanks for your help on this.
