Depending on where the IVF clinic is, you may have to take 2 or 3 trips to them throughout a cycle. This depends on what each clinic requires of their patients. Usually, the first trip is for medical screening and the second one for embryo transfer. There could be an additional trip for a mock transfer but this is not routine across all clinics. Any appointments for monitoring during a cycle can usually be performed at a local monitoring clinic close to you. Long-distance travel is kept to a minimum whenever possible.
