Las Vegas Tip Guide

Las Vegas Tip Guide

We all know that it can be expensive to go out on the town during the day or at night, especially in a city like Las Vegas, where everything is priced higher than normal. But regardless of what it costs for the Las Vegas shows, spas, activities, specialty drinks, bottle service, etc., it is important to tip. Tipping is not only proper etiquette, but it can also elevate your experience with better and faster service.

While we all know the purpose of tipping, showing appreciation for a service well done, but how do you know who to tip and how much? First, if the service is bad, it's up to you how much to leave, if anything. Typically, a good rule of thumb for great service is 20% in restaurants and 15-20% at the Las Vegas nightclubs and shows.

The Tourism industry in Las Vegas, which includes entertainment, hospitality, and gaming, is the city's largest industry. Everyone gets tipped, from the bellman, valet, and housekeeping to VIP Hosts, dealers, bouncers, Las Vegas strippers, tour guides, taxis, Ubers, and Lyfts; bartenders, the waitstaff, cocktail servers, concierge, room service, and restroom attendants. The list is seemingly endless. When discussing per-person costs for your Las Vegas bachelorette party or girl's getaway, be sure the group understands the importance of tipping in this town and includes extra cash in the budget. Tipping can often be confusing and stressful, and there are a lot of variables. Below is Bachelorette Vegas' tipping guide for Sin City.

How Much Should I Tip?

Tipping Guide

In the US, the customary amount for tipping is typically 15 to 20% of the total bill before taxes. This is considered a standard practice to show appreciation for the service provided by servers, bartenders, and other hospitality professionals. While 15 to 20% is the norm, it is important to consider the level of service received when determining the appropriate tip amount. If the service was exceptional, you may consider tipping on the higher end of the spectrum. Conversely, if the service is subpar, you may choose to tip on the lower end.

What Happens If I Don't Tip?

Handshake Tip

If you don't tip, there are social and professional consequences to consider. Tipping is often relied upon by service staff to supplement their income. By choosing not to tip, you may not face immediate consequences, but it is likely that your experience as a customer may be affected in the future. While tipping is ultimately a personal choice, it is worth noting that it can have implications for the quality of service you receive and your reputation as a customer in the service industry. Service staff are likely to remember customers who do not tip or who tip poorly, and this may result in subpar service on your next visit. Additionally, word spreads quickly among service staff about customers who are rude or do not tip, which could potentially impact your reputation among the service providers. It is important to consider the hard work and dedication they put into their jobs, often for low wages, and tipping is a way to show appreciation for their efforts.

Who Should You Tip in Las Vegas?

ATM

Las Vegas is a service-oriented city, and you will be interacting with a diverse range of service providers from the moment you arrive until you leave. See the list below.

Pro Tip: Having a stack of small bills specifically set aside for tipping is a common practice among seasoned travelers and can make the process smoother and more efficient.


Rideshare/Taxi Drivers/Airport Shuttles

Taxi

When it comes to tipping rideshares, taxi drivers, and airport shuttles, it is important to consider the level of service provided and the overall experience. For rideshares such as Ubers and Lyfts, it is customary to tip around 15 to 20% of the total fare. For taxi drivers, a tip of around 15 to 20% is also standard. Regarding airport shuttles, a tip of $1.00 to $2.00 per bag or per person is typically sufficient; however, if the driver helps with loading and unloading your luggage or provides exceptional service, consider tipping a bit more.


Bellhops

Bellhop

Bellhops store your luggage should you arrive before your room is ready or hold your luggage if you need to check out of your room before you are prepared to leave the property. They will deliver and pick up from your room as requested. The customary tip is $1-$2 per bag or a flat fee of $5.


Room Service

Room Service

Typically, the gratuity is included on the bill, but if the room service attendant sets up your meal, then add $5. If no gratuity was added, then leave at least 15%.


Valet

Valet

If valet is free, $5 is a good tip with an additional $1 per piece for luggage assistance; if, however, valet is $15-$20, then figure 20% of that for the tip. It is important to remember that the valet parking attendants do not set the parking fees, and while you are never obligated to tip, it is viewed as improper etiquette.


Front Desk/Concierge

Front Desk

You might not think you would tip the front desk clerks, but remember, this is Vegas. Depending on the information they offer and how helpful and friendly they are, anywhere from $5-$10 is a good tip. A hotel concierge assists guests with various tasks like arranging spa services, show tickets, transportation, etc. A customary tip would start at $5, but if, for example, they score you a dinner reservation at the hottest restaurant in town, you should consider sliding them $10-$20.


Casino Hosts

Casino Hosts

Casino hosts can hook you up with Las Vegas hotel rooms, meals, bottle service, and more. This, of course, is all based on the amount you gamble. The more you gamble, the better the services. The gratuity should be based on the size of the hookup and if comps are included. Customary tips start at $20 and go up to $100.


Table Dealers

Table Dealers

It depends on how long you stay at the table and if you're on a winning or losing streak. It's entirely up to you whether you leave a tip; it's not required; however, when you leave the table, etiquette dictates that you should tip between 2-5% of your winnings.


Limo/Party Bus Drivers

Limo/Party Bus Drivers

This is a big one, especially for those who are getting FREE limo rides on our strip club packages. These drivers run around Vegas, ensuring they arrive on time to make sure you stay on schedule, so a nice $5-$10 tip is greatly appreciated!


VIP Hosts

VIP Hosts

If the gratuity is not included on your bill, then leave an 18%-20% gratuity. At the clubs, an extra $100 "shake" or "handshake" goes a long way – this means you tip on top of your table minimum and the tip, tax, and venue. (The "shake" or "handshake" to the podium goes into the host's tip pool). When taking care of the front door, you can sometimes get moved to an upgraded table or a better location by doing so. For comped bottles and tables, the tip is 15-20% based on the price of the bottle. Considering most bottles in the city are anywhere from $600-$800 each, a $75-$100 tip should do the trick.


Cocktail Servers/Restaurant Wait Staff/Bartenders/Bussers

Server

The majority of nightclubs, Vegas pool parties, and restaurants in Las Vegas auto grat, which means that no matter what you spend, you are going to be tipping the server 15 to 20% whether they do a good job or not; otherwise 15% to 20% is the norm. For the bartender, even though drinks at the bar are overpriced, bartenders do not set the pricing. We recommend a $2-$5 tip per drink.


Restroom Attendants

Restroom Attendants

It might seem ridiculous for restaurants and clubs to have restroom attendants, but they keep the restrooms cleaned, stocked, and organized, so $2-$5 per visit is a considerate gesture.


Housekeeping

Housekeeping

A suggested tip for housekeeping is $2 to $5 per day, but if you leave your room looking like a cyclone hit it, please consider leaving more.

While the above list does not encompass all the service personnel you may encounter during your trip to Las Vegas, it is important to note that tipping is a customary practice that can enhance the quality of service you receive. Some individuals may decline tips due to company policy, but offering a gratuity can serve as a means of incentivizing and acknowledging exceptional service.

Tipping Etiquette

The final tip is that tipping is a reward for good service, but as we said, there are a lot of variables involved when deciding on how much to leave. Hopefully, our Guide has eliminated some of the confusion. Some places auto-grat the bill, leaving you no choice but to tip, but for the most part, a tip is not mandatory and should not feel like an obligation. Again, it's a reward for good service. While no one wants to be called cheap and stingy, ultimately, it is your decision on who to tip and how much.

If you want an alternative to the pricey clubs, we also have other extreme packages like skydiving, machine gun shooting, and supercar racing. We are experts at creating fun! Call us today and let us help you plan your entire Vegas visit. Guys, consider hiring some Atmosphere models or Vegas girls to enhance your Vegas nightlife experience!

Some other options for entry to pools and clubs include the pool crawl, cheap bottle packages, the Las Vegas guestlist with a Las Vegas Promoter, Vegas club tickets, or a bar card - all are good options for one or two events.
