Introducing tip-inclusive holidays, a new and exclusive concept that will revolutionise your travel experiences. Let us help make your travel count.
When planning any holiday your budget comes into play and is often of the key considerations for the type of trip you’re planning.
At ETG our holidays include a lot in the upfront cost – flights, guides, drivers, accommodation, entrance fees and tips for drivers and guides– so your spend in-country is entirely at your discretion. You will never have any nasty surprises when it comes to cost.
Here you’ll find information on tipping expectations in each country (for those not travelling with ETG!) and travel hacks that allow you to get great value holidays within your budget.
During your ETG consultation, we’ll be able to let you know different options to fit your requirements. Your consultant will always be open and honest about where you could save money, and what kind of experience is well worth the splurge, too.
Got your dream Borneo trip booked? Thinking how much you’ll spend? Here are our Tipping guidelines for Borneo to help you have clarity.
Tipping is very much a western import and some guides may say it’s not customary. That being said it’s an important form of secondary income for Cambodians and does incentive good service. Here, we share on our thoughts on what is an appropriate amount to tip.
Tipping isn’t common practise in Thailand. If you notice a group of locals, you’ll rather rarely see them tip at a restaurant for example.
