portal to portal

When quoting a remote project that involves travel, we calculate travel time as being "Portal to Portal", meaning cost is based on what I charge for travel time from home (or where ever the start point is) to the project location.

If it takes 1 day to complete a project and 2 days for round trip travel, then a business may charge a daily rate of $1200/day from portal to portal. That would be a charge of 3 days X $1200/day = $3600. The reasoning is: If I was not sitting on an airplane, I could be making money somewhere else.
