How to Tip in Europe

While tipping is almost always expected in the U.S., it isn’t as common in Europe. Keep scrolling to learn what you should do in various tipping scenarios:

Tipping in Europe

At a café…

When ordering food from a café counter in Europe, tipping isn’t necessary or expected –so no need to bust out the extra change.

At a bar…
Tipping your bartender in Europe isn’t expected but giving them one or two euros for great service is always appreciated and totally welcome.

At a restaurant…
Contrary to popular belief, there really is no obligation to leave a tip at a European restaurant. If you do feel that your service was exceptional and want to leave a tip, try not to exceed 10% of the bill, as anything more would be considered excessive. Keep in mind, the service may already be included in your final bill in some countries (i.e, service in France), so be sure to factor that in before leaving a tip. Cash tips are also recommended.

Your shuttle driver…
Though unnecessary, your shuttle driver would certainly appreciate one or two euros per bag if they help you carry your luggage to the bus.

Your taxi driver…
A safe bet is to round to the nearest five euros for a shorter ride, or to the nearest ten for a longer commute.

Your doorman/bellhop…
One or two euros is the perfect way to say thank you to your doorman or bellhop for helping you with your luggage.

Your housekeeper…
A couple euros is sufficient when tipping your housekeeper after your stay on vacation.

We hope this Europe tipping guide is helpful the next time you make the trip overseas. Don’t have anything planned yet? Well, we can fix that! Contact us today at or click here for a free quote.

5 Reasons Why You Should Book Your Honeymoon with a Travel Expert

You didn’t think you had to do all the planning on your own, did you? Here are 5 reasons to book your honeymoon with us:

5 Reasons Why You Should Book Your Honeymoon with a Travel Expert

It Saves Money
Did you know that by NOT booking with a travel agent, you are ultimately paying for a service that you never received? In other words, booking with a travel agent costs you nothing more than you would pay if you were to book online yourself. They help you save money by finding the best value vacations out there, too.

First-Hand Knowledge
With years of combined experience in the travel industry and certifications in the destination wedding and honeymoon industry, a travel expert will be able to match you with the perfect honeymoon by just asking you a few questions! Oftentimes, travel consultants visit resorts throughout the year so they can share their experiences with you. It’s a win-win!

Personalized Itineraries
Struggling to plan your honeymoon abroad? Well, a travel expert can fix that! You see, travel consultants know where all the great dining and shopping places are because they work with hundreds of couples each year. Save yourself hours of research and let them do the work for you.

Keeps You Organized
In addition, a travel expert works with you hand-in-hand starting from your very first consultation, through your journey home. It’s their job to book your flights, create your itinerary, arrange transportation, and manage all the little things you certainly don’t want to deal with after planning a wedding. Let them be your honeymoon helpers!

No Service Fees
The best part? No fees. That’s right, with a honeymoon specialist, you won’t have to pay them a dime. Yes, the agency makes a commission on the trips they book, but only until after you've return from travel –which is already factored into the price. So, not only will you receive expert planning and guidance along the way, but you’ll be supporting a small business, too!
