Travel cost methods of valuation
RICS Insight Paper ‘Value of natural capital - the need for chartered surveyors’ published by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors in 2017 suggests that travel cost methods of valuation are revealed preference methods that draw on the revealed preferences of stakeholders.

- Avertive expenditure (or avertive behaviour method).
- Replacement cost.
- Direct market valuation.
