You missed two important things like

The Agents name and the Company then some one might be able to give you some good advice.

Also if anyone else gets work through them they can get in writing Door To Door All expense's paid etc.

Snacks at the airport - they probably thought you were taking the piss and decided 2 can play at that game.

Ah.. the 'Snacks' .. I missed that.

It pays (by way of not being jerked around) not to piddle around with the small stuff.
(Snacks at a bar/restaurant can also be considered as being booze by many companies.. so just claim main travel expenses and settle for that.

I'd get back onto the agency and suggest that whilst you accept that 'snacks' might be knocked back you need to know why the taxi fair has been refused as reimbursement for travel is an industry norm.
You should be able to claim for at least one method of transport to get you to and from your house/airport.
Ask them to explain in writing by email so that you may have a record of their continued refusal to pay.

As a point on claiming taxis... sometimes it's more simple to claim MMA as no invoice is required. In the UK I believe the going rate is 40p/mile.

Remember, you are claiming expenses from the agency (your client) not their client.. if their client refuses to pay the agency that is their problem but the expense should not be passed back to you. Ask them why they paid those expenses to you in the first place. I would suggest they paid because they felt the claim was legitimate. As, no doubt, was your invoice for services performed which they also paid. What would happen if they paid your invoice and then the client refused to pay them.. are the agency thn going to deduct that from another invoice the next time you work for them?

I'd ask what right they have to deduct money from an invoice that is unrelated to the job you had previously claimed for. Both jobs probably have different job numbers so they are wrong to deduct from one job number for a problem relating to another.
From a legal perspective I would suggest they should have consulted you and agreed this by prior arrangement.
I believe what they have done is wrong and most likely illegal.

If you get no joy out of the agency in short order, you should name them so that others may be aware of who is carrying out this practice.
