Do you receive a travel allowance or just the reimbursed amount?

Just a reimbursement

Unfortunately your company reimburses you way below the SARS and AA rates for mileage traveled. On your payslip do you have source codes 3702 and 3703?

I have no source codes only thing stated is a mileage re-reimbursement.

Unfortunately then you won't be able to claim against this reimbursement. You may be able to claim some wear and tear on your car that you use, but SARS would require some evidence of this and how you calculated the amount. Your company needs to reimburse you at the SARS rate - inform them of this as you are losing out.
