Carers allowance

Am hoping somebody here would be able to help me.
My daughter would like to claim Carers allowance for looking after her father who is in receipt of pip.
The question is she earns £150 pw but travelling expenses are £20 pw can that be counted to bring the figure down to the acceptable amount?
Thank you in advance

The most common way to bring earnings down to within the threshold is to take out a personal pension plan as 50% of premiums can be deducted.
