Where do I enter my deduction for travelling to work as an independent contractor?

All I find is this:
"Did you spend any money on business travel which you do not get a travel allowance or reimbursement for? You must be a commission earner to answer Yes. Look for source code 3606 on your IRP5. Your Commission MUST also be more than 50% of your total income as stated on your IRP5. "

And this:
"Do you receive a travel allowance from your employer? Click Yes if source codes 3701 or 3702 appear on your IRP5, AND if you kept a vehicle logbook. "

Despite choosing the ultra package your website doesn't seem to cater to my needs.

SARS are not allowing the correct section of the tax return to be completed for independent contractors therefore you need to please make use of the business income section of the tax return in order to include your travel and other work related expenses in the appropriate sections.
