Tipping
Post: #1
Hello Julia
As you will have seen, there has been some recent discussion re tipping.
Are you able to clarify whether tipping for maids, hotel porters etc. are covered by Just You, or should we be giving this consideration ourselves? Thank you. Kind regards Olive

Hi Olive,

With the exception of gratuities to hotel porters (one piece of luggage per person), tips are not included in the price of your holiday and there will be occasions when you are expected to tip.

When calculating the tip in restaurants and bars, 15-20% of the bill is usually appreciated, sometimes the tip is added to the bill and when in taxi cabs, 10% of the posted fare is usually appreciated.

Hope this helps,

Kind regards,
Julia

Olive,
Just check your bill before paying as some restaurants in America add the service charge nowadays (so no need to add a tip as well), especially if there are 6 or more people eating together. It does vary from place to place so just be careful you dont tip and pay a service charge, seen a few make that mistake.
