Tipping Taxi drivers and others in London and Paris

Jump to last reply

We are leaving for London for a week at the end of March and I want to make sure I know what to do. Do we tip taxi drivers in London and if so what is the appropriate amount/percentage? We will also be going to Paris for a day, what percentage do we tip drivers in Paris?

What about housekeeping in the hotel? Do you tip daily or at the end of trip?

Concierge? They have helped me over the internet with dining reservations.

Restaurants? in both London and Paris

Can you tip on your credit card in restaurants?

Do taxis take credit cards? I will need to exchange GBP for Euros for our one day trip to Paris for taxi cabs when we arrive at train station and don't want to get too much. I would guess that most anything we plan on seeing/doing would accept AMEX, is this pretty much accurate? SIghtseeing buses, museums, Eiffel Tower, food, shopping, subway etc. Are there places that would not take AMEX? or VISA?
