Tipping 2.0: What to Do When a Tip Is Tricky

1323128287_80a43fb232_z (1)Have you ever had tipping shame? I define this as a situation in which you had good intentions but because of a lack of knowledge or resources you did not leave an appropriate tip—and regret it? I have. Check out my recent post on TravelSkills.com where I confess to six travel tipping situations that have tripped me up. There you’ll also find my thoughts on how to handle a few of those situations—but not all, because answers are rarely clear-cut when it comes to tipping.

I’d love to hear about any awkward tipping situations you’ve encountered, too. Travel so often puts us in unanticipated and confounding circumstances. But that’s what keeps it interesting, right?

In the meantime, when in doubt, I’m erring on the generous side.
