The mileage reimbursement rate for official travel via privately owned vehicle (POV) went down by 1 cent in 2024 for permanent change of station moves but rose slightly for other official travel.

For PCS travel, the Mileage Allowance in Lieu of Transportation (MALT) rate became $0.21 per mile on Jan. 1, 2024, down from $0.22 per mile. 

For temporary duty/temporary additional duty (TDY/TAD) travel, rates also changed on Jan. 1. The new rates are:

  • Auto: $0.21/mile
  • Auto, if no government vehicle available: $0.67/mile
  • Motorcycle: $0.65/mile
  • Airplane: $1.76/mile

The official mileage distance for calculating travel is determined by the Defense Department.

For PCS travel, the number of travelers in the vehicle has no bearing on the amount of MALT paid.
