Can someone please enlighten me about tipping in Dubai??? Thanks! :)
NO TIP, MOST ALREADY ADDED ON BILL UNLESS EXTREME GOOD SERVICE, GIVE EXTRA OR ROUND OFF IN A TAXI TRIP
Tips are not obligatory but an acceptable practice, except it Govt institutions esp at airports where it is prohibited.
Tipping isn't part of the culture and no-one expects a tip but you can give one if you want to reward good service. I round up taxi fares. Tourist restaurants (in hotels) usually add a 'service charge' to the bill, outside restaurants don't.
It's your free will but some of us have the habit of tipping so it is not an obligation but if you feel that the service is extremely good than you can tip.....with me it happened only in a message center ;-)
Thank you everyone. Help is much appreciated!! :)
