TOP TIPS ON TIP­PING…

The Jewish Chronicle - - Life / Travel -

WHILE it’s tough try­ing to de­ci­pher what to tip from coun­try to coun­try, most trav­ellers want to avoid the cold shoul­der from the maitre’d

In Ja­pan, if you leave a cou­ple of coins on the ta­ble, the waiter may chase af­ter you to re­turn your for­got­ten change, but in New York if you leave less than 15 per­cent, good luck mak­ing a reser­va­tion in the same res­tau­rant ever again.

Here is our guide to tip­ping: Share your hol­i­day snaps and images with other readers. This could be quirky, funny, at­mo­spheric or sim­ply a view you love.

Gary Barak from London, hol­i­dayed with his fam­ily in Ey­gypt about 18 months ago. He snapped his son, Nathe, hold­ing up a pyra­mid.

Gary says: “We had a fab­u­lous guide who took us around Cairo (be­fore any trou­bles) and we had VIP guest passes for the amaz­ing mu­seum as well as vis­it­ing the Pyra­mids. The kids love it. I would rec­om­mend Cairo to any­one as long as it’s an or­gan­ised guide with a good rep­u­ta­tion. We flew in from Sharm for a day and it’s some­thing that shouldn’t be missed.”
