    Cheers that is helpful.

    Well they usually lift one side of the wheelbarrow up and let the contents fall out.

    The staff don' get a minimum wage so rely on tipping SO TIP. Depends on service but I usually tip 15%.

    10-15% is the norm, depending on how good the service is, they are normally pretty good

    Hi, i was in canada last month, and went down into the us for a day, they "expect" about 15% as a rule, and are not all too grateful if thats all they get!!!! its a right rip off if you ask me!!!

    We went to less touristy places and attitudes were miles different, so much more genuine and friendly!!

    BTW the candians were far more polite and deserving of a tip, especially (and oddly) the further you went into the french speaking parts.

    In so I can check the link when I get home

    I read that as fly tipping !! Time to go home I think:oops:

    I still think I prefer our system of a normal wage and if we do a really good job we might get a tip.

    After looking at the link provided I hope you got a good deal on the holiday package.

    i traveled across america last month and tipped 15-20% as a general rule, depending on quality of service.

    the quality of service in america tends to be much better than here, so they deserve it.

    eg, supplying you with free coffee at breakfast.

    Just dont do this

    15-20% generally,check as some tourist areas in the US add this onto the bill automatically now(shows as gratuity)

    a couple of dollars on the hotel pillow morning for maid so you get your room done well

    On an adventure holiday no hotels.

    you are meant to tip in bars and stuff also, do people have any advice on this? do you tip per drink or say x amount of dollars per round or stick to 10% ish

    I read somewhere some guy was hitting over $2k in tips everyweekend at some bar in NY and they arent getting paid enough...

    if you buy your drinks round by round the barman / server will expect $1 per drink.

    if you run a tab you can add the 15% or so on the final bill.
