"TIPPING DO’S AND DON’TS !" Krakow Warnings Or Dangers Tip by DAO

Krakow Warnings and Dangers: 109 reviews and 95 photos

Would you be willing to give a tip to a waiter or waitress that is more than your total bill? Follow these instructions or you may just lose your money! Tipping is on the minimal side here. Leaving small coins in a restaurant or bar is fine. Taxis – never and count your fingers and rings when getting change back. For very good service you can add on 5% or so. If you try and leave a tip on a credit/debit card the wait staff do get it, but have to pay tax. Obviously a cash tip would be better.

Now the problem. If you say the word for 'Thank You' in Polish when paying the bill – the staff will keep ALL the change! Be careful! Ask for the bill and hand over the cash and use the work for ‘Please’. Then collect your change and leave any tip. The 3 important words are:

* Rachunek (rakhooneck)
* Proszê (prosheh) – Bring me my change!
* Dziekuje (jen-koo-yeh) – Take all my money I didn’t read DAO’s tip!

If you do make a mistake, do ask that the money be given back and do tip something.
