-----------------------------------
Hi, I have asked someone to collect my child from school and drop home. It is literally 2 minutes away but the person I have asked will be going about 5 minutes out of their way, possibly 10 depending on traffic. I would like to pay her for petrol costs. How much would you think is fair?

A parent passed my house and collected/dropped my school run for me. €5 a day...€3 for the morning drop as 2 kids, evening run €2 as only one child. School runs aren´t the nicest job to be doing as weather, hassle if jumper left behind, carseats etc....but the convenience of it is sooo worth the money.....

Thanks for that, I was thinking €3 was fair so that´s great to have an opinion on it. My child is almost 11 so won´t be too much hassle as in can come out to car herself on wet days and only needs booster seat etc. Not talking down the job, I know there is still a responsibility there for the person so absolutely want to make sure I am being fair.
