do you have a travel allowance?

do you have a travel allowance or allowed to reimburse your transportation expenses? at one of my previous jobs, we had a radio operator. after many years, he was told he was going to be based at one of the plants. the plant was quite far from his home, so it would mean added travel time and expense. so he requested for a travel allowance, since the increased fare will eat into his salary. sorry, i can't remember anymore if it was granted or not. fast forward many years, i remember talking to a bank employee while upgrading an account. she said sometimes the bank would assign them to a different branch, but they don't get a transportation allowance. that was disappointing to know since it's a big bank that could very well afford to treat their employees fairly.

@hereandthere He had to travel quite a bit when he worked for the U.S. Dept. of Labor as a regional director. His trips, food, and everything else were paid for by the government. Teachers here were not reimbursed for travel to workshops and the like.
When I was in the bank before, as officers we have the per Diem when we travel. That already includes, the hotel and food expenses not subject to liquidation. For our transportation gong to and from the branch , it is paid by the company.
I think it depends on every situation some offer staff houses so they can live near the place of their work. Some offer some kind of bus services where they will pick you up on one location and send you to your workplace. It is different from workplace to workplace. As to banks where employees are often transferred from one place to another. If the transfer is within shall we say within Metro Manila then no allowances are given.
