1. Re: Tipping

If you search the forum you will find many threads on tipping.

Tips have to be earned - not expected.

Drivers approx. LKR 500/day. Bell boy LKR 50-100 depending on how much baggage you have and how far they have to carry.

Cleaners? Do you mean room boys/girls?

500 Rupees a week is a reasonable tip for room boys/girls, otherwise known as room attendants..

We tipped luggage handlers 50-100 rupees depending how far they had to go.

Cleaners we didn't as we only stayed 1-2 nights per hotel, driver who we had for a week we tipped very well as we really rated him....we tipped him 14000 rupees for 7 days(worked out about £10 a day in English money)

Hope this helps
