Tipping in Paris - hotel housekeeping/concierge, etc.

Jump to last reply

What is the protocol in Paris for tipping these people? One woman who works at the front desk has been particularly helpful. She's answered all my emails very promptly, made 7 nights of dinner reservations for us, etc.

Taxi drivers? I've heard to round up a euro or two from the fare. What about tipping for a longer trip, as from CDG to the city center?

Finally, restaurants: I *can't* find the "right" answer to this... Some people say tips are not expected, but an extra few euros are appreciated for good service. Some people say 5%, others 10 or even 15% as we do back home (!). What would you give for "fair" service? For good? Obvoiusly, for truly outstanding service, I'd tip quite nicely.

Thanks so much for any advice,
Tara
