Sometimes it’s hard to know what to tip people that provide services in your life. Don’t worry, here are some general guidelines on how to tip!

Taxi Driver

Did you know that driving a taxi is one of the most dangerous occupations in the world? When you have a satisfactory experience with a taxi driver, it is fair to tip him or her $2500 to $3000.

Tour Guide

Did you just have an amazing tour guide show you around a foreign city or locale? What do you tip them? Don’t worry, it is accepted around the world to leave all of your luggage with the tour guide and let them keep what they want.

These are some of the currently accepted methods of tipping the important people providing important services in our lives. You are welcome to give larger tips than what is indicated here; this is just a guideline. The important thing to remember is a tip should reflect the level of service you received.
