A Few Simple Tipping Guidelines to Follow
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 do not concern myself too much with this, but if you are traveling to Asia for example, you may want to have a closer look. I recently came across this handy Global Tipping Guide and a few places surprised me! : 😕
Before we have a closer look, check out this short video on tipping from one of my favorite Travel Experts.

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 out there, but I do expect to receive Service With a Smile before I even think of leaving a tip! 🙂
- A gift or reward, usually of money, for services rendered; tip
- Something given without claim or obligation
A gift or reward for services received. If I do not receive a service with satisfactory results, should you still have to pay a reward for poor service?
In my opinion, absolutely not!
If you do receive that service favorably, then yes, if customary, you should tip what is appropriate for that country. I always suggest for people to include gratuities in their travel budget, especially those taking those wonderful all inclusive cruise deals! 🙂
