Tips

How much tip do we leave in Argentina and who to? A few answers to the most common cases in order to respect the local culture:

  • At the restaurant, general rule is to leave 10% of the bill, even if nowadays most restaurants charge an extra called "cubiertos". It actually covers the bread basket.
  • It's not mandatory to leave a tip to the taxi drivers, but they will appreciate if you don't take the coins of your change. But a tip is expected if they help you carry your luggage, 2 pesos minimum.
  • If you're taking a lond distance bus, you will probably check your bags; make sure you have a minimum of 2 pesos to give to the porter.
  • In some public toilets, the paper, soap and other amenities are distribuited by a person at the door who also makes sure everything remains clean. Keep you small change, that's a case when you will be glad to find those precious coins.
