Tipping: The Ultimate Guide

Ever walk into a hotel and wonder if you should have tipped the doorman? Or been perplexed by the automatic gratuity on your spa treatment? Travelers encounter a lot of new people, from tour guides to cruise ship stewards, and it’s not always clear if you should hand them a tip or just offer a hearty handshake.

Our new pocket Tipping Guide is perfect for all travelers. Whether you’re a seasoned jetsetter or a casual tourist, this handy reference covers just about everyone you might meet out on the road. With guides for tipping people in the hotel, transportation, leisure, dining, and cruising industries, you’ll always feel confident when you run into a new situation. We’ve also included a quick reference for gratuity percentages. And best of all, the Tipping Guide is downloadable and folds into a pocket size, to fit easily in your wallet.
