Tipping Taxi Drivers

The official St. Kitts website says, "Tipping taxi drivers is not customary." Is this the case, or do people tip them, anyway?

1. Re: Tipping Taxi Drivers

That's a tough one. Without trying to "stereotype" different nationalities most American tourists give taxi drivers a tip, those from Great Britain rarely tip and it's equally split among other Europeans. FYI - locals don't use the taxis that often so it's hard to say what's the norm from them.

I usually tell our house guests to give 10% rounded up to the next dollar. For most trips, tipping at that rate only amounts to a few dollars and is a good way to show your appreciation to the driver for a job well done.

Use your best judgement.
