Tipping in India
Don't tip unreasonably and unnecessarily in a hotel. Always be rational while tipping. The NEWS soon spreads in the hotel and by the time you checkout there will be a group of them saluting you to expect something. Make note of the below pointers:

1. In hotels and restaurants, tips are not normally included in the bill.

2. However, most of the hotels and restaurants today include service charges on their bills. In such cases tipping is not requisite, but this is normal courtesy of the guest to pay those people who provide best services.

3. Normally a standard tip is 5- 10%, depends on the figure of bill.

4. In hotels, the room service attendants and porters are usually tipped at the end of the stay, although an early tip is likely to get you the better services during your stay.

5. Tipping of taxi drivers is not essential at all. One just needs to pay as per the meter readings or the fixed charges. If you hire an individual car, end of the services paying the driver would be ideal. You can pay $ 10 to $ 25 per day. Depend how much you are satisfied with him.

6. At hotels don’t pay individual to the room service boy. Call them up once you leave the pay to one of them and ask to share the tip amount. Else paying individually to service boy will be complicated. You can pay anywhere between $ 10 to $ 50 OR INR 500 to INR 2000 at each hotel.

7. You can pay INR 100 TO 500 to bell boys. And if you are quite happy with the food served to you, then you may pay the chief cook INR 300 to INR 1000; depends on the category of the hotels you stay.
