How much more should one be compensated for excessive travel for a job?

I accepted a job a year ago that involved very little travel (10-20 days a year). Since then my job description has changed and my duties require me to travel 120 day per year or more, with trips sometimes lasting up to 3 weeks working an average of 15 hours per day, 6 or 7 days per week. Does anyone know of any resources that may help calculate an average of how much more "travel" jobs generally pay more than "in office" jobs. Any help is appreciated. Thanks Thanks for the input. In my experience if a company is hiring for two positions, same job,(ex. Project Manager) where one position works out of the office and the other is required to travel extensively, the pay for those two position will differ due simply to the fact that it there is a smaller pool of potential employees willing to travel when they can find a similar position at similar pay, that does not require travel. In my case, I have colleagues with the same job and qualifications who aren't required to travel and have a similar salary. This was justified when I was an "office" employee but now that I'm a "travel" employee and am required to travel extensively, it seems fair that I would be compensated at a higher level. I'm going to ask for a raise, i just need to figure out how much and put together a justification to present to my boss, i.e. you'd have to pay X$ to hire for my original position and X% more to hire for my current "travel" position. thanks

Usually "travel" jobs pay the same as "office" jobs, the only difference is the company either pays or you get reimbursed for air fair, food, rental cars and hotels.

Is the company giving you a per diem when you travel? Money per day for incidentals? Maybe you could ask you boss to increase this amount since you are traveling more and for longer periods of time. (Per diem money is not taxable income) Or ask them for a raise in your salary. In our company both office and positions... More
