Daily Rates


ECA's Daily Rates for business travellers help to anticipate the cost of international business trips.

Also known as per diems, Daily Rates come as part of a subscription, or can be bought on demand for individual locations or as a global set.

Each report itemises daily costs for the following expenses to give flexibility when calculating allowances for short trips abroad:

  • Hotel room (3, 4 and 5 star)
  • Meals
  • Alcoholic and soft drinks
  • Journeys by taxi and other public transport
  • Laundry
  • Incidental costs


Daily Rates Calculator

ECA's Daily Rates Calculator helps you to calculate and manage daily subsistence allowances for international business travellers.

The calculator makes it easy to adapt ECA's established Daily Rates data to produce per diems in line with your company policy, ensuring fair, accurate and consistent allowances for your global business trips.
