Enter the total distance traveled and the total yearly distance into the calculator to determine the travel percentage. This calculator can also evaluate any of the variables given the others are known.

Travel Percentage Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the travel percentage.

TP = (TD / TYD) * 100


  • TP is the travel percentage (%) TD is the total distance travelled (miles, kilometers, etc.) TYD is the total yearly distance (miles, kilometers, etc.)

To calculate the travel percentage, divide the total distance travelled by the total yearly distance. Multiply the result by 100 to get the travel percentage.

What is a Travel Percentage?

A Travel Percentage refers to the amount of time an employee is expected to spend traveling for work-related purposes. This is often expressed as a percentage of the total working time. For example, if a job has a travel percentage of 50%, it means that the employee is expected to spend half of their working time traveling. This could include traveling to different locations for meetings, presentations, site visits, or any other work-related activities.

How to Calculate Travel Percentage?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Travel Percentage.

  1. First, determine the total distance travelled (TD) in miles, kilometers, or any other unit of measurement.
  2. Next, determine the total yearly distance (TYD) in miles, kilometers, or any other unit of measurement.
  3. Next, gather the formula from above = TP = (TD / TYD) * 100.
  4. Finally, calculate the Travel Percentage.
  5. After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

Example Problem : 

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

total distance travelled (TD) = 500 miles

total yearly distance (TYD) = 2000 miles
