    Alright so we'd all love to earn £30 per hour 8 hours per day, 5 days per week. Yadda Yadda.

    But the fact is, even if we have the jobs to achieve this it's very rare because we have to travel!

    I reckon I lose at least 1 - 1.5 hours of earning per day because of driving about. I'm a new starter though, hopefully as I get more compact this will reduce!

    So how long on average per day do you spend travelling?

    The most i travel is about 30 minutes away and when i am there i am not moving around to much so i guess 1 hour tops on a bad week but when i get closer home about 30 minutes

    longest i have traveled for a job is an hour there and and hour back, but thats just a one off.

    best that i have done is on my tri-monthly contract clean, took me 7 hours to do, and that worked out to be just over £53 an hour!

    Mine are all over place but gradually pulling em in, getting a few wherever I'm already working & got couple of days a month compact now so will come together eventually and I'll just drop the ones I don't want then.
