Tipping Guidelines for Your Honeymoon
 
 
Tipping customs vary from country to country. It is advisable to inquire about tipping with
the international tourism board representing the country you'll be honeymooning in. Simply ask for information about tipping customs and social expectations. You will also want to
discuss gratuities with your travel agent or planner. Some travel packages include gratuities
in the total cost, some leave that to the guests, and some even discourage tipping (usually
because they have built it into the total package price). Be sure to discuss this with your
travel planner.
 
This tipping guide is provided to help you get familiar with customary gratuity standards you may encounter throughout your travels.
