This article outlines the mileage allowance rules applicable in Germany.

Mileages are allowances at a specified rate per mile or km granted to employees for the use of a vehicle.

  • €0.30 per km with a car

  • €0.20 per km with a motorcycle or moped

These rates are pre-set when using Circula.


A traveller working in Berlin visits a client based in Dortmund and uses his private car for the trip. Assuming the total distance for the round trip was 576km.

The corresponding mileage allowance will be: 576 x €0,30 = €172.80.

📝 Note: the same rules applies for German companies worldwide. The same calculation would apply for a trip with private car that took place in France, for instance.
