New rates for official travel to many specified destinations, and for the standard reimbursement for travel elsewhere, take effect Saturday (October 1). The “meals and incidental expenses” portion will continue to range from $51 to $74 a day, while the standard lodging rate for locations without their own rates is rising from $89 to $91 a day. For the roughly 350 destinations that have their own lodging rates, most are changing little or not at all; for many of those destinations, lodging rates vary seasonally.
