For Drivers

Expenses

Please use the envelope provided for receipts. It might be helpful to snap a picture of each receipt just in case something happens.

Gas

Please use cash provided and get a receipt for all transactions. If it’s easier to put it on your credit card and reimburse yourselves from the cash (exact change only) that should be fine, but a receipt is still needed.  

Tolls

You have my EZ-Pass. It should automatically detect the trailer and charge accordingly. I can get a receipt for myself by downloading the online statement.
If you go through a toll that does not accept EZ-Pass, please use the cash provided and get a receipt.

Other

If an emergency or flat tire arises, you can use the cash, call Enterprise for roadside assistance, call AAA if any of you have it, or call me for advice. Just don’t forget the receipts!!! If someone needs to use a credit card and the cash doesn’t cover it, we can get you reimbursed ASAP.
