Rossen Reports: Ultimate guide to tipping in every travel situation

Hi. Yeah, even the most seasoned travelers struggle with tipping. I struggle with tipping all I travel *** lot. So let’s tackle some of the common vacation situations and what experts say about tipping during them. First up, let’s head to the airport for curbside baggage handlers. 1 to 2 bucks *** bag is good. Airport shuttle drivers who take you to your car or the rental car center should be tip 3 to $5 according to money experts more. If they help you with really heavy bags, strollers or wheelchairs. Next, let’s talk about hotels. If there’s *** hotel employee that helps take your bag from your car and then up to your room tipping about 1 to $2 *** bag is customary for *** hotel valet. *** typical tip is between two and $5. Now, I gotta be honest, I didn’t know this part. It’s customary to tip both when you’re dropping off your car and picking up your car. I will admit, I usually just do it when I pick it up. But that’s interesting. I guess you’re supposed to do both. But at minimum tip when you check in and out of the hotel housekeeping tip, 1 to $5 each day. It shows your gratitude for the person cleaning your room, but don’t just leave *** lump sum tip at the end of your stay. It’ll probably only go to that one person who happens to be there that day. It’s best to leave your tip throughout your stay and leave the tips on the back through sync rather than the nightstand because cash can easily get lost there. Finally, when it comes to cruises, no hard and fast rules about tipping. Most cruise lines already charge you *** gratuity fee automatically. So make sure you check that before you start leaving cash everywhere. And remember, I just wanna say again, these numbers are just suggestions from the money experts. You can choose whatever you wanna do right. Base it on your own finances and more importantly, base it on the service itself. The service is really good. Go on the upper end if it’s really bad, don’t, it’s *** tip. That’s all for today though. Back to you.
