Smooth Roast – GBP 4.50

Coffee and calm, before waking the band. On my own, on my phone. And, the Centtrip app. Double-check last night’s door monies are in the account. The dollar exchange rate looks good, convert to USD for the US leg.

Need more merchandise for the tour. Luckily, the supplier’s also on Centtrip: an easy, instant, no fee payment, $1,000.

Oh, and scan the coffee receipt for my expenses.

  • Manage multiple accounts with real-time reporting from the app.
  • Simple, international payments. Instant and fee-free on CenttripNow.
  • Scan and tag receipts for easy analysis.

Holiday Inn – GBP 2,937.15

Check out. All rooms, and extras, settled on the Centtrip card. Richard (the band’s accountant) will see the transactions when he gets into the office and can start closing off the accounts for the European leg of the tour. He’ll also top up the US dollar balance on my card, as we start the US leg.

Mickey’s lost his card (again). Locked it instantly using the Centtrip app.

  • Highest card transactions limits on the market.
  • Hold up to £350,000 in 15 currencies on your card.
  • Instantly lock or unlock your card from the app.
0928 EST • The Atlantic

Batch payment – USD 1,400.00

God bless in-flight wi-fi! Laptop out and a last-minute change in itinerary. Next week’s Seattle gig will now be in Vancouver. Richard will switch some USD to CAD nearer the time.

Time to batch process per diems for the touring party. One click and everyone’s prepaid Centtrip card is topped up with their weekly allowance.

Oh, and Mickey was using his card as a book-mark. Unlocked (again).

  • Batch payments and accounting system integration.
  • Manage currencies at live-market rates.
1800 EST • New York

ATM – USD 1,000

Soundcheck. Flight was late. Late to venue. But a dash to the nearest ATM and additional, casual labour was hired. It’s a tour manager’s job to think ahead, anticipate problems and deal with the unexpected.

The world can’t always wait for a phone call – especially across time zones – but Centtrip’s high balance and transaction limits make handling obstacles or opportunities nice and simple.

Besides, Richard gets grumpy if he doesn’t get a good night’s sleep.

  • Withdraw up to £4,000 from ATMs worldwide.
  • High transaction limits empower people on the road.
0055 EST • New York

Rainbow Room – USD 750.00

Bruce Springsteen came backstage after the gig! Impromptu after-party. Unexpected bar bill. But a fantastic kick-off for the US tour.

Oh, and I did the day’s expense report in the hotel room afterwards. Scanned receipts and real-time reporting keep it simple and ensure nothing gets missed.

Started advancing the Canadian dates. Paid a deposit on PA rental for the Vancouver gig using Canadian dollars we held from the last tour.

  • Avoid unnecessary costs by holding multiple currencies in your account.
  • Low, fair and transparent rates put you in control of your multicurrency balances.
