A Few Simple Tipping Guidelines To Follow
I recently came across this handy Global Tip Chart Infographic, I thought would be worth passing on. Are you heading away on vacation to a unfamiliar Country and not quite sure on what the Rules for Tipping are for your chosen destination?
Well, I generally don’t concern myself too much with this, but if you are traveling to Asia for example, you may want to have a closer look.
Before we have a closer look, check out this short video on tipping from one of my favorite Travel Experts.
Tips On Tipping From Peter Greenberg – YouTube Video
Tips For Satisfactory Service Rendered
When I travel, I do like to leave a Tip (Gratuity) when I am satisfied that I have received service worthy of one in the first place. After years of travel and working in the service industry, I know how important Tips are to most service oriented workers around the world.
I do however, expect to receive Service With a Smile before I even think of leaving a tip! 🙂
World English Dictionary
A gift or reward, usually of money, for services rendered; tip
Something given without claim or obligation
Along with the services mentioned in the chart above, there a few other very common services provided when traveling that do and should be worthy of tipping.
For example …
Bellhops and / or Porters
Chambermaids and / or Cabin Attendants
Tour Bus Drivers
These are just a few of the more common services that you are likely to encounter on your holiday or business travel that should be considered in your tipping budget. Again, if you are satisfied with the level of service received, a small gratuity helps these individuals greatly!
I always try to deliver my gratuity to these types of individuals directly or in person.
This, so I am absolutely sure this person is receiving my gratitude and not someone else by mistake or otherwise. As well, I always try to carry a few small bills in my pocket at all times, so that I am prepared to leave a tip and not caught empty handed, which can be embarrassing at times. 😕
One last note on tipping and also listed in the charts above. Be sure to look at your service bills carefully! Many times, service charges are already added to your bill. Something I have run across many times, for many different types of services, during my years of travels abroad.
Safe and Healthy Travels! 🙂
