    It's what you spend.

    best advice is to claim what you spend.....
    in addition there's a £10 allowance for overnight incidentals, but you didn't ask that question

    We get £30 a day for food etc. but we work in the Middle East a lot and £30 won't cover 3 meals a day.

    In all my years of contracting I have never claimed for lunch. To me you need to eat regardless of where you are. Generally, I would take a packed lunch anyway.
