Tipping and Gratitude guidelines:
Tipping is not compulsory, but it is customary in Tourism services and usually, the standard of service that determines tips. Travelers are often confused about the tipping culture in Southeast Asia. Tipping is a firm and expected element, a part of income for those who work in hospitality, and Southeast Asia Countries are no exception.
Most of your tours, booked by Asia Vietnam Travel’s customers are private ones and group tours too. Therefore, tipping for independent travel is not compulsory and is at the customers’ own discretion, it is not included in tour prices. However, private guides and drivers do expect a tip where good service has been provided and it is very much appreciated. Otherwise, tip when you are pleased and satisfied with the service you received and do not tip if you don’t feel you have been given good service. Never feel obliged to tip – it is always discretionary.
The following is just a guide to gauge an appropriate amount to tip and is not all-inclusive:
SERVICE AND TIP AMOUNT
Tour Guide: It depends on the group size
FIT < 6 pax – US$ 12 – 15 /grp/day ( roughly USD 14 for 2 pax)
Group 7 – 15 persons – US$ 15 – 20 /grp/day
Vehicles or bus drivers
City Transfers – US$ 6 – 10 /day/booking ($8 for a group of 2 pax)
Mountain road – US$ 10 /group/ working day
Incentive Groups – US$ 10/day/group
