Financial recognition

People working in tourism depend on tips.

  • Inquire whether it is common to give tips and how high they usually are. This can vary from region to region.

  • Suitcase carriers, chambermaids, waitresses and waiters often can't live on their wages alone. Give a generous tip if the service was good, but don't exaggerate, as you might give rise to false expectations.

  • If the service was bad, give less money or don't tip at all. Explain why you weren't content with the service in a friendly way, without arrogance.

  • Don't ever get involved in bribery. You would only contribute to the widespread corruption, a more "sophisticated" way of begging and fraud.
