Know when to haggle

In some cultures you’re expected to haggle over the price of goods, in other cultures it’s an insult to offer anything less than the asking price. Sometimes it depends simply on what you’re shopping for. Find out, by consulting a guidebook or even checking with your concierge or local tourism office, when and to what degree haggling is appropriate. And no matter how aggressive the seller is, always set a fixed price in your head and stick to it.
