A couple rolls of quarters wouldn't hurt either.

Buy them a transponder (EZ Pass or compatible other) for the toll roads and load it up with $60. A transponder, aside from being convenient, will save 1/4 to 1/2 off of the tolls. EZ Pass will work on every system from Chicago to the east coast.

Cash is nice but it gets mixed up with everything else and may soon be forgotten. The EZ pass is an interesting idea.
Pulling a trailer--ugh. but that will add to the tolls wherever they are.
So the quarters are an interesting thought as are dollar bills.

No. Cash works. I don't know why it would be "forgotten"???

There is a rare situation that USD won't be accepted. All the various prepaid cards may or may not turn out to be appropriate, you just don't know the situation they may find themselves in.

Quarters for parking in cities, doing your wash in a laundry matt, buying soda or a bag of chips from a vending machine. Again nothing is more practical than cash. Some quarters, some $1s, and some larger bills.
