Does the company reimburse you for travel and do you also receive a travel allowance?

Yes I get a travel allowance, and have a petrol allowance that is added to my Income on my payslip, and then also deducted in my deductions section on the payslip.

Yes, then it is correct to include both. You need to ensure you keep a logbook to record all business travel and then complete the travel allowance section of your Tax Return in order to reduce the tax payable on your travel allowance.
