The doubling of the promotion bonus, which will increase from 200 to 400 euroswas approved by MPs during the first reading vote on the 2022 Budget Amending Bill on Tuesday night to Wednesday 27 July.
This vote is in line with the proposal made by Elisabeth Borne last Thursday, who wanted to submit an extra boost for employees who, given current fuel prices, use their private vehicle to get to work.

As the amendment tabled by MoDem MP Mohamed Laqhila states:
“The benefits of this system are only available to workers residing in communities not served by a regular public transit service or an employer-established private service, and to those for whom the use of a personal vehicle is essential due to special work hours conditions, who do not allow the use of a collective means of transport. »
“That corresponds to a discount of almost 50 cents”
It will be possible to combine it with the management of the public transport subscription, Economy and Finance Minister Bruno Le Maire said on Friday.
The increase in this transport premium, which is paid by companies that cover all or part of their employees’ fuel costs, was provided for in the previous versions of the Purchasing Power Act, but eventually disappeared from the amended financing law, recalls theAFPquoted by several colleagues.
On Thursday 21 July, in an interview with the EBRA group newspapers, the Prime Minister indicated that she wanted to pass this help tax exempt Companies to their employees with 400 euros instead of the current 200 euros.
“The philosophy is Protection of the purchasing power of all French people for fuel at the beginning of the school yearand that the companies then take over,” she explained, specifying that this corresponds to “a discount of almost 50 centimes at the pump for an employee who travels 12,000 kilometers a year” .
