How much do you tip a valet?
I have worked as a Valet in many capacities over the past 3 and a half years in Scottsdale, Arizona. Many people have asked me this question. The biggest misconception people have is if there is a service charge. Generally, this charge amount is all going directly to the company, to some fat guy sitting at home while all the valets work their butts off for him. Most valets are only paid minimum server wage (3.90+tips in Arizona). So if you simply only pay the service charge and don't tip the valets, you are basically saying that that's all they're worth to you. Saying "Thank you" and simply smiling has yet to pay my bills....I have found that on average for a service charging account, the average tip is $3. If you want better service, ie: your car being kept up front, you better tip at least $20 and it is protocol to tip that on the way in unless you are a known regular. If you are at a location that does not have a service charge, $5 would be the average, being that the service charge basically has been paid by the location you are at. Once during a discussion with other valets, we determined that a good way to tip would be to tip $1 for every $10,000 your car is worth. Remember, valets are hard working people, most being students that work their butt off and are just trying to earn some money to get by. Talking down to them will get you nowhere. If you regularly go to a certain place and valet, tip them well and get to know them. You will get better service and soon find out that most valet stereotypes are only in the movies. We have better things to do with our time that to screw up something on your car. I hope this answers your question!

The milkman provides a service weekly, rain, snow etc and is not a federal govt worker so you should tip them. Question: do you tip food delivery service to your home? I do, usually $3 each time they deliver. You should figure out a percentage to tip them weekly per your usual standing order: for ex…ample, if you only get 2 bottles a week, your tip should be less than someone who gets 10 bottles a week. 10% for mediocre service, you have to call and get your order corrected with up to 20% of your annual bill for excellent service. Or figure the weekly amount you would tip a food delivery service. In our area, our milkman delivers at night so these guys are out in cold/snowy weather at night bringing something directly to our door--they deserve to be tipped just like any other food delivery service (MORE)
Everyone deserves to be acknowledged for doing a good job. Moreover, everyone seems to expect a tip for doing their job these days. Movers are no exception.

Answer . You don't have to tip painters. They usually add in that cost in the contracted amount. If you feel they did a good job and are all men then buy a few cases of beer for them.. I had a new roof put on the house about 8 years ago and it was during the summer and it was very hot. I'd make …up icy cold lemonade for the men or have an ice cooler full of pop or bottled water. When they finished the job (depending on the time of day) I'd make sandwiches and give them all a few cold beer. Sometimes just give them the cases. (MORE)
Answer . about 12.5 percent of an iceberg is above the water. That leaves the other 87.5 percent hidden from view.
If the caddy is really good, tip how you feel at the end of the round. If you knock a few shots off your score, raise the tip accordingly.
Many valet employees at hotels make 7-10 dollars per hour plus tips, which can range depending on how busy you are and how many people are working to split the tips with. In an 8 hour shift at hotel in Omaha, Nebraska, I average 12/hour in the winter months and 15-20/hour in the spring through fall.… Also, the graveyard shifts are generally paid 10-11 an hour due to less tips and the odd shift. I work at a tribal gaming casino. We pool our tips together and spilt them in 3 different sections during the day. I make 8/hr base wage. the averages of our tips "cuts" are 3am to 11am: $5/hr , 11am to 7 pm $12/hr, and 7pm to 3 am: $20/hr. on a really busy Saturday night I've made $30/hr plus base pay, so about $38, but your legs are like rubber after that Depends on where they work also. Casino. Hotel. Restaurant. Personally I work at a Casino with a base pay around 4$ an hour +tips. Also we pool tips so the person you tip doesn't get the reward for his individual efforts, instead the collective effort (and the guests generosity) determine their wages.... (MORE)
A valet company will charge around 25 to 35 dollars an hour pervalet. Most companies require you to hire someone for 3 to 4 hoursminimum.
Normally I go to the bar with 5 dollar bills & just leave therm with the change from each drink. Normally my drinks cost around $3.50, $4.00 so they get left with a $1 every drink.
TIP AT LEAST $50 & BETTER. IF YOU FAIL TO DO SO THEY WILL REMAMBER IT WHEN U ASK FOR A FAVOR. THEY WILL HIT ON UR GIRLFREIND / WIFE & GET HER PREGNANT IF U TIP CHEAP. HEY IF U CAN LIVE IN A DOORMAN BUILDING THEN U CAN GIVE $50 & BETTER. REMEMBER DOORMANS PRODUCE BABIES AS WELL :-) .
server wages are reduced to account for the tips. The average hourly rate is 1/2 minimum wage or around $3.50 an hr. fifteen to twenty percent of your bill is the average tip. An easy way to figure out a decent tip is by taking the first number and doubling it. So if the bill is $46 you would lea…ve $8 and that would be just about twenty percent (MORE)
I am a server myself and as a general rule never tip less than two dollars even if dining alone. Tip according to the service you receive but base it on a two dollar minimum, and always at least 15 percent. Of course tipping more than 15 percent is always welcomed. Service above and beyond excellent… should always be rewarded. Servers are taxed based on sales and whether you tip or not, they are still getting taxed as if you did leave a tip. Unless the server is outright rude to you leave at least 10 percent, even if the service was slow. They are still being taxed. (MORE)
The norm is between 10% and 20%. For excellent service, 25%. Figure the tip based upon the food total minus the taxes. Having worked in the food service industry for many years, I appreciate all the hard work that these young men and women have to endure to make a decent living, so I always star…t at 20% as a minimum, and increase commensurate with service received.

15-20% of the bill. CNN has a nice summary of accepted tip values for many services. Note that these seem to be written based on United States culture and these can vary in different countries. See the related links section for the full table.
if the manicure was o.k., tip 15%. if it was great, tip 20-25%. if it was sooooooo worth more than you paid, tip 30% or more. hope this helps!
In the United States tipping of many service people, including waitstaff and bartenders, is part of the social contract we enter into when we decide to patronize a full-service bar or restaurant. In U.S. restaurants where table service is provided, 15-20% is the standard for good service; 25% for… outstanding service. This also holds true if you eat at the bar, particularly a bar within a restaurant or hotel. The bartender who takes and places your order, then brings out the food, is doing no less than a waitperson who takes care of tables. If you're only drinking at the bar, the same percentages should apply with an exception: if you're knocking back $4 "happy hour" specials, $1 a drink should be the minimum tip. While tipping is always at the guest's discretion, if you received substandard or poor service, don't just "stiff" your server: speak to the restaurant manager. Otherwise, the server will never know why they didn't get a tip, and the restaurant personnel will be deprived of information that could help them improve their service. There are also other circumstances where tips are warranted. At airline clubs, for example, where complimentary drinks are often a perk of membership, it's appropriate to tip the server who is pouring or mixing your beverage. $1 for a simple cocktail or poured glass of wine or beer will be appreciated. If the drink you've ordered involves more preparation, such as a Bloody Mary or a margarita, a $2 tip -- for the additional effort -- is better. After all, the drink itself is free. The minimum tip guidelines outlined above also apply at a "cash bar" at a reception or banquet. However when attending a hosted reception at a hotel, restaurant, or banquet facility, tipping is not necessary (though leaving a dollar will be appreciated and usually get you remembered in a good way). The reason is that the host will be charged a percentage of alcohol sales -- usually between 15% and 20% -- and that percentage will be divided among the bartenders who worked at the event. (MORE)
To tip for a facial, you can either give about 10 to 20 percent ofthe entire service cost, or you can tip a dollar amount that youfeel is fair. Some people tip 10 dollars or 20 dollars regardlessof the service price.
A person should always tip valets, waitstaff, bellhops, restaurant hosts/ess, beauticians, stylists, and generally anyone who goes out of their way to help you.
Restaurant staff in Germany (and elsewhere in Europe) are typically paid a higher base wage than their counterparts in the U.S. and Canada, and restaurant prices are "endprices," set to provide enough profit to pay those wages. However, with increased international tourism, the notion that tips ar…e not necessary is fading away. Still, tipping is much more modest than in North America. In Germany, it's accepted to round up the price on the bill (NEVER a "check") to the next Euro or so. If the check is â¬12,45, â¬13 is good; if it's â¬12,95, â¬14 will be appreciated. Also, each waitperson carries a wallet with money and will make change right at the table if you're paying in cash. If you're presented with the bill above and you hand it back with a â¬20 note, you could say, "Make it 13 (or 14)," which would tell the server that you're giving them a tip. That is a more accepted way of giving a tip than leaving money on the table. It's important to know that in many parts of Germany and Austria, if you hand the bill and money to the server and say, "Danke," which is German for "thank you," you're essentially saying "Keep the change." While it's nice to try to use some of the native language when visiting another country, this could result in you leaving a much larger tip than you intended. (MORE)
You would tip 10% for average service, 15% for good service and 20%for excellent service. Most people tip around 15% which goesdirectly to the person doing the pedicure.
Small tips ($2-3) to porters; no tips in taxis; service charges are usually included in the price.
It's customary not to tip, in a Public House, when just drinking. This however is sometimes done, when the Pub has a Restaurant, although tipping is always optional.
When dealing with the catering service you should always ask if their gratuities (tips) are included. If not then it's 15% of the total bill that you would pay the owner of the catering business and hopefully this is shared with the delivery person (who may be quite possibly a partner in the busines…s).

Depends what you had done and how your service was. Usually it's $5-$17. Again, it depends what you had done...color, cut, style, highlights, etc. Hope this helps! :)

a Valet is a male personal servant, valeting is what he does. Valeting may also refer to the dry cleaning or otherwise making presentable, articles of clothing
Tipping is usually inexpensive in France as the bill always include the waiters' and waitresses' wages. In fact most people do not tip any more, and those who do often leave only some change. I would say that 50 cents or 1 euro is fine unless you feel you have been very demanding on the waitress.
Hey, well let's just say... if u want to give a tip, give it to the waitress, cos otherwhise it'll end up with the owner of the restaurant. and i'd think a 10% tip is ok, if u rly liked the service.. tipping is not obligated though!
Five dollars for each mover for a straight forward and easy job. More if they go above and beyond or if they have to climb a lot of stairs. if they are good and were very professional and you enjoy your move . ask your shelf if you was in their place how much would you want for the good job you …done...i find this way the easiest way.

For a food delivery, the standard tip is $3. I usually give more ($4 to $6) if they are delivering a lot of food, or if the weather is bad. In restaurants nowadays, you are generally expected to tip 20% for good service. The standard tip was 15% for a long time, but in the last 10 to 20 years, it h…as gone up to 20% of the total bill. It is acceptable to adjust this up or down depending on the service. It is NOT acceptable to adjust this tip because of kitchen errors or delays. The waitstaff have no control over that. Also, tips vary widely depending on the service. If you have a houseful of furniture delivered and you tip 4 men $3, you are going to receive very poor service in future. My general rule is to tip, per person, the amount of a nice lunch in your area. Generally no less than $20 per person. Tips for personal services, i.e. haidressers. massage therapist etc,10-20% depending on the quality of service. Do not give cash tips to hospital personnel. A tip should include all nursing staff for all three shifts. And specify if you give candy, which box is for which shift. A flower arrangement and a Thank You card for the nurse's station is nice. But really, a Thank You card is all that is necessary for good, attentive care. There are books for tipping in all situations, but it reads like the tax code. Let your conscience and your ability be your guide. (MORE)
Depending on what you are tipping for, and whether you fancytipping in the first place anything from a few pounds to 10-15% ofthe bill is acceptable. Tipping generally isn't expected in the UKas staff earn a higher minimum wage than in other countries such asthe US where tipping is seen by many as a… mandatory practice. (MORE)
Depending on the experience. For someone who only has a year or two, ten bucks. For a more experienced person with several years more like a twenty. Always Go with how good you thought the massage was, as sort of a gauge for the therapist to know how well they are doing.
It depends upon the service and type of resturant, but also it depends upon the capabiltiy of coustmer.
All the suggestions for tipping carriers are SO off, it makes me sick. Although this one suggests a fairer amount than most, it is still not on par with what should be suggested, realistically. I am a newspaper carrier. I pay for my bags, which I bag my papers in everyday (double on rainy days), I p…ay for my vehicle, insurance, gas, and because I deliver the paper 365 days a year--more frequent oil changes, tire replacement, brakes. The wear and tear on our vehicles goes without saying. Most people tip a waiter/waitress more money for visiting their table a few times than we get for throwing you your paper 365 days a year. I am NOT an employee of the newspaper. I pay for your papers, they reimburse me a smaller amount. I get no benefits, I pay my own taxes out of my pay. It is like a very poorly paid small business. If you are receiving good service from your carrier--$52.00 would be an appropriate tip ($1.00 per week). Weekend customers can cut that in half. But if you can afford it, we can use as much as we can get. I have almost 300 customers and receive only about $400. each and every Christmas. That is pitiful! (MORE)
It would depend on what the amount you were being charged in the first place was. You would be paying 18c in a tip for each dollar of the original charge.
when you call the escort service you should get an idea by asking questions like " if i have $300 cash on me should that be enough to cover a tip?" the tip amount varies depending on the area, for example, the tip would be a lot more in Florida than in South Carolina. a good thing to keep in mind i…s that generally escorts make the same, per hour, as lawyers in the area.

Auto detailing can be a great way to bond with your car, and tomake your automotive investment go farther, last longer and lookbetter.
Depends. When its busy 100-150 when its slow you can be luck to walk away with 50$. you make 2.58 an hour.
It is customary to tip 20% of the total of your services. So if your cut cost $30, tip $6.
It can vary depending on the services the valet provides $1-5 is typical. If you have a more expensive car you might want to tip more to show you appreciate their excellent care of your investment.
Depends on how much the tan cost. Usually 10% of the cost of the service.
The current socially accepted rate for servers is 18-20%. However this rate has risen consistently since the 1960's when it was 10%. Other factors include, what shift, what type of ambiance the restaurant resonates, and most importantly, how good was the service? Though it may be socially acceptable… and often expected, poor service should not merit a tip, unless it is in the form of advice about how to better serve next time. (MORE)
When it comes to tipping valet parking attendants, the decision on how much to tip them must be decided by the service you have received. If you are very pleased with the service and feel that they have earned a generous tip then it's perfectly acceptable to tip them as much as your budget can provi…de. If however, you are not happy with there service, or feel that hey could have done better, then it is also perfectly acceptable to not tip them at all. (MORE)
The whole concept of tipping is weird. A lot of people feel that tipping is nice, yet others feel tipping is not necessary. Most places will generally include a tip in the bill anyways so you dont need to do it yourself.
One can purchase valet parking at Gatwick for one week from Ã¥Â£44 or Ã¥Â£68 for 15 days. One can go direct to the Gatwick website or through a website like Gold Parking.
The prices start at 84.00 and increase depending on your length of stay. You can reserve parking on their website. Valet parking prevents you from having to walk or take a bus to the terminal.
Valet parking at Gatwick Airport costs approximately Ã¥Â£104 a week if you do not mind taking a bus to the airport terminal. If you want to walk directly to the terminal, you will need to pay approximately Ã¥Â£270.40. The prices are the same for both terminals (Gatwick North and South).
This depends on various factors like how long one wants to park his/her car and when one wants to park his/her car. One can expect around $8 a day and around $100 for 2 weeks.
The cost of valet parking at Heathrow airport can vary depending on how long the vehicle is parked. The cost for 1 day is 67.30 pounds while 2 days is 91.20 pounds.
There is no particular etiquette when tipping your hairdresser.Some people tip their hairdresser and others do not. It depends onhow often you go to the hairdressers, whether you use the samesalon/staff member or not, the service you get and what you canafford to give.
