Using Ratt for Airport Transport - do we tip?

Hi.

Sorry if this seems like a trivial question, but we are using Ratt's transfer from the Airport to the Hotel. She states her fee to be B500 net. Do I need to make sure I have extra little change for the expressway fee & how much , if anything do we tip for this -

Thanks in advance

as a westerner i always tip for good service....i suggest you do if she is providing other services for you...

as for tolls, i suspect she will cover that...if not have a 100B at the ready...there are many ATM's at the airport...or you can owe it to her if she is doing other things for you

also remember that aiprot pickups are really a waste of time for these tour operators as they have to wait a long time for you...she is really doing you a favor...500 is cheap

she may want you to pay for the parking, but i doubt it if she told you "net"....to me that means all inclusive...

I'm with Bill - I always tip generously for good service in the developing world.

make sure you specify which exit to meet her in. When you walk out you can either turn left or right.

We booked Ratt and missed her because we turned left and she said she was waiting right.

hope you have a great trip
