Have you ever gotten out of an Uber ride and wondered, “Do I tip and if so how much?” While you’re traveling, you’ll face many situations like this that may have you wondering whether you should tip and how much.
So we decide to write a blog article with customary travel tipping etiquette. Of course, if someone goes above and beyond and you feel like tipping more, feel free. These are just guidelines that we’ve encountered as a travel agency in Denham Springs, Louisiana.
- Hotel Tipping Guide – If a bellhop is there assisting you with your luggage then yes they should get a tip. How much? Customarily, it’s $3 to $5 per bag. If the valet calls a car for you then you may think about tipping $2 to $5. What about the concierge? If they assist with dinner reservations or tickets to a show, then it’s customary to tip $5 to $10 depending on the extent on the assistance given. Should you tip the maid who is cleaning your room? It is customary in most cases.A good rule of thumb is $2 to $5 a day.
- Traveling by Cruise Tipping Guide – As a Denham Springs travel agent, we’ve sent many travelers on cruises and one the most frequently asked questions is how much to tip while cruising? For mainstream cruise lines they’ll automatically charge your credit card $12 a day per person in the cabin. But some of the higher end cruise lines, like Seabourn and Regent Seven Seas, they have a no tipping policy. Isn’t that a great bonus to traveling with them? Put your wallet away and enjoy yourself knowing that everything is already paid for..including tips. However, it is customary to give porters $2 to $5 when they help with your bags.
- How much to tip an adventure guide – Generally speaking, it’s customary to tip travel guides $10 a day per person.
