Autotrip has launched a free app that allows drivers to record every business trip they make using their phone’s GPS and submit accurate mileage claims.
The app runs automatically in the background and records every mile driven. Drivers can then classify trips made as business or personal with a single swipe, before submitting the mileage claim, including all of their business trips for the month, to their employer.
Those approving claims can review every trip on a map, store all claims online and set their own custom mileage rates if needed.
James Finlayson, managing director at Autotrip, said: “We’re thrilled to make Autotrip available on iOS and Android. Our customers have long asked for this, and we’re excited to bring to market a reliable mileage tracking app that’s suitable for any business size, regardless of whether you’re a self-employed individual or a large fleet with hundreds of drivers.”
Autotrip is designed and managed in the UK, and says the customer service team is based in London to provide real-time support. Private trips are also only visible only to the driver, ensuring their privacy is respected.
Furthermore, Autotrip calculates the VAT amount businesses can reclaim on their fuel expenses and mileage claims are HMRC compliant, use up to date mileage rates and are stored for the required six years and beyond.
It comes with an unlimited trip allowance, enabling employees to claim everything they’re entitled to, with no limits or hidden fees, it says.
Autotrip also offers a GPS mileage tracking device that can be plugged into any vehicle as an alternative to the smartphone’s GPS.
The device can be trialled for 14 days for free and added to the driver account for just £5.99 + VAT per month.
Autotrip offers a team plan for larger fleets, which gives access to in depth analytics and a centralised account to manage the company’s business mileage.
