I am currently on leave and have DTS travel request for the location of Pensacola, FL for 35S and Jump school to follow.
1. 66/34.50 Gov Lodging/75% meals (Authorized).
2. In/Around mileage of 12 miles (Authorized).
3. One Travel day from Ft Drum to Pensacola as G8/AO will only authorize the cost the flight. From PDS to AIT then AIT to Jump School VS Mileage and lodging.
My question is why am I an not authorized 4 days travel days since it would be more advantageous to use my POV/POC vs Flight/Rental Car?
If choose to fly instead of drive would G8 approve a rental even though it is not mandated?
Would I be out of luck either ways since if I drive my POV I will lose out travel days and lodging reimbursements/ If I choose to fly G8 doesn't have to approve a rental car even thought ATTRS special instruction say "must be authorized in/around miles".
