To Tip Or Not To Tip On Your Trip, That Is The Question

Whether you are traveling for business or pleasure, you should know the rules of the road when it comes to tipping. Be sure you have a gratuity line item built into your budget because you will need it.

Event planners should always carry enough cash for the countless bell hops, tradeshow workers and car service drivers that assist you on the road. A little thank you goes a long way for folks that are busting their tails every day which usually goes unnoticed.

Kiplinger has a great “tipping cheat sheet” that can you can refer to next time you travel:

1.       Include gratuities in your business/vacation budget
2.       Tip the right people
3.       Stock up on small bills
4.       Avoid unnecessary services and accompany tips
5.       Read the fine print

The last point is extremely important, a lot of companies include gratuity right in the final cost or have a no tip policy.

For instance, BostonCoach is a no-tipping car service.  No need fumbling through your wallet as you race to catch your flight; BostonCoach has you covered.

So tip wisely and travel smarter.
