    I had an interview a few weeks ago for which I booked a hotel room and a train ticket. I was told I would be reimbursed expenses up to £80 (the actual amount was slightly higher). I was told to bring my bank details with me on the day of the interview, but on the day no one asked for them but they did take my receipts which I had brought with me when I gave them to them at the same time as they asked for some other documents.

    I need to follow up and email about this. However, I'm not exactly sure how to go about asking. I was successful on the interview, so I'm kind of worried that if I word the email in the wrong way there may be some consequence. Also, I'm worried that they will think booking a hotel was extravagant - but the cost of an early morning train ticket was actually higher than the cost of the cheap room and off peak train ticket I bought.

    Any advice as to how to go about this would be much appreciated!

    It is your money. Just e-mail them and ask if they can give you an idea when they would be reimbursed. Most decent employers I have been to reimburse you on the day. the Hotel is fine if you had to be in interview on a certain day. Sometimes a hotel plus afternoon train is cheaper than a peak train.

    Just call or e-mail and ask. No fuss. No need to worry.
