Tipping is overlooked in todayís travel industry. Itís defin an old school mentality and can carry a strong response. Just donít tip the TSA after your massage.

Iíve tried twice with hotels and both times it didnít work. I feel like they can get scared to give you upgrade if you give them money..

  • Location: The value of a forum such as this one is not in that one can post a question and receive an answer, but in that the question has most likely been asked before, and the answer is available to him that will but only use the search function.
  • Programs: 1. Search on google. 2. Search in the right board of DDF with a general word or two. 3. Read the wiki. 4. Read the thread. 5. Ask away.
