Home Travel Essentials ⁄Tipping


Tips is quite common in service industry. It is extra expenses from your pocket. You would like to give to the service provider when you are happy/satisfy with their services. Like other country; in Nepal also tips are taken as a token of love and as a gesture of satisfaction from the guests. Nepali people are quite friendly by nature. Most of the clients return with satisfaction and promise to come back again. Because of the friendly nature of guides, driver, porter and hotel crews, your travel become quite enjoyable. Due to all these factors the service providers get good tips from the clients.

However, tips are not the mandatory and nobody can force you to give tips. The service providers never ask for the tips because it is the only clients who decide whether to give or not to give tips to them. But in most instances the service providers expect tips from the clients though they do not ask verbally from the client.

Usually tips are given to those persons who are directly involved in your service. To name; guide, driver, porter and may be hotel bell boy are supposed to get tips.
