I should apply for my UK ILR in July, I was wondering how shall I calculate my absences. The traveling days are counted as absent?

Hi How can I help?

I will read your question and respond

Which visa are you currently on?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

In most cases this means you must not have spent more than 90 days outside of the UK in the 12 months prior to your application, and not exceeding 450 days in the 5 years throughout your qualifying period

How many days have you been out from the UK?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
My question is something else, I am applying for long residence, I was wondering my arrival and departure days are considered as an absence?

No they are not counted - they day you leave and return
