TippingTipping is common practice in South Africa for a range of services. In restaurants the accepted standard is around 10% of the bill, barmen are tipped a similar percentage.
Petrol stations are manned by attendants who will expect a tip of two or three Rands for filling up with petrol, checking oil, water and tyre pressure and cleaning windscreens. If you park a car in a populated area such as near a shopping centre, street security guards will usually ask whether they can watch over your car and in return should be paid a small fee – anything from one Rand upwards.

If you go on a guided tour, it is also appropriate to tip the guides (with 5-10% of the tour-price). And of course our staff is also happy with the recognition of their service!
