Spending Money on Tour
Date: May 11, 2014
I am hoping you will all be willing to offer your methods for handline spending money for your choir members when on tour.
The choir I tour with is a boys' choir, ages 8-14. We travel for 14-21 days at a time. In the past we have always collected their spending money and then paid with our cash or credit card and had each boy track his expense (with guidance, of course). We are, however, considering having each boy submit a VISA debit card. We would then create a system to check out with their items.
The main point here is, "HOW DO YOU DO THIS?"
Do you use VISA cards?
Do you manage spending money at all or is it entirely your choristers' responsibility?
Do you use cash?
Your input would be greatly appreciated.
