When planning a Tibet travel travelers often ask how much they should expect to tip guides, drivers, and other travel support staff. Tipping customs vary greatly throughout the world often leaving travelers wonder when a tip is appropriate and how much to give. Tibet Ctrip Travel Service-TCTS (http://www.tibetctrip.com) says that travelers are not obligated to tip; however, in Tibet, good service does deserve a good tip. TCTS outlines general guidelines for travelers to consider when giving a tip.
Those in the Tibet tourism industry work very hard to help ensure travelers enjoy their time in Tibet. Tipping is an important source of income for these workers as many depend on income from the tour season to support them throughout the whole year. While there is no explicit obligation to tip, if a travel group is satisfied with the service they have received then an appropriate tip is customary. Now that the season for tours of Tibet is in full swing, travelers are encouraged to support the Tibetan community by giving good tips for good service.
