The tipping guidelines are quite simple in Lapland
General tipping guidelinesThe tipping guidelines vary a lot throughout the world.Tipping can be a puzzling experience in different parts of the world. It's common in some countries. In some places it is expected only in major cities. And in many places it simply isn't done. Also the rules are changing. The next time you go to a place, the rules from your last visit may be inappropriate.
Always have in mind that tipping is your way of showing that you appreciate the good service. As such it is really up to you to you to decide the value of the service.
In some parts of the world, for instance in Japan, tipping may be regarded as an insult. In large parts of the world it is wise to watch local people. Do they tip - and how?
In Europemany hotels and restaurants add a service charge to the bill. As a general rule additional tips are not necessary. But if there is no service charge added to your bill, 10% is the general rule for good restaurant service. For porting the equivalent of a Euro (a dollar) per bag will be a nice gesture.
Tipping in LaplandIn the Lapland countries (Finland, Norway and Sweden) the tipping guidelines are the same. In restaurants and hotels you may add 10% if there is no service charge.
When porters take your bags to your room, it will be a nice gesture to tip a Euro or a dollar for each bag or suitcase.
In taxis you may round up the payment.
Always use common sense. You may want to take a look at these general tipping guidelines for Europe.
