The average person spends about four hours in the car or shuttle. Let's consider an individual making $50,000 a year. $50,000/2080 = $24.04 hourly. That's an extra $100.00 the company just paid to have their executive drive themselves to the airport! (We won't count this expense. We'll give them the benefit of the doubt as they may consider the driving time just part of that employee's travel day, or it may be a leisure trip).

What is your time worth to you or your employer?

Without adding the payroll expense, we have an estimated travel cost of $150.25 (mileage & parking) for a three day trip before you even consider the price of the ticket from St. Louis.
