    Didn't say you should, just pointed out that it's probably not the biggest risk a contractor needs to be worrying about.

    Ask Client to pay your accommodation for you directly and reduce your weekly invoice by that amount

    The problem with this attitude is you shouldn't mix up the risk of being investigated next month (small) with the risk of being investigated over the course of your career (not so small).

    It's also the general direction of travel that is taken into account along with the square mile rule.

    For London generally, I've seen it expressed as travel to the nearest mainline railway station to determine the journey.

    My IR35 investigation was based around travel to Edinburgh

    Thank you. I will try to see if the Client will pay directly for the accommodation as this is the most significant cost. I will take a 'hit' on the travel cost if I can get them to agree to this.

    Be a bit careful about how you do that. You are not losing the ability to charge expenses to YourCo, only the personal tax relief on such costs. Asking for the full cost of the accommodation will be seen as unrealistic when in reality your costs are only going up by around 20%.

    And just as a cautionary note, the usual response is along the lines of "You quoted us a rate for the job, so it's your risk if your expenses have gone up". Think about how you would counter that argument.
