Tipping

  • Restaurants Tipping is not traditionally the culture in Greece, though it is appreciated. Locals tend to leave a few coins. Depending on where you are, you can round it up or leave around 10%.

  • Taxis Round up the fare. There's a small fee for handling bags; this is an official charge, not a tip.

  • Bellhops Bellhops in hotels and stewards on ferries appreciate a small gratuity of €1 to €3.
