Keep all receipts while traveling. Here are some tips to make it easier:
- Retain receipts for all expenses.
- Put all receipts together and keep them in a safe space.
- Pack a folder or envelope and put all your receipts in as you go.
- Keep copies once your expense report is submitted. Or, take a photo of your receipts.
