TIPPING

IS TIPPING COMPULSORY?

Tipping very much depends on whereabouts in the world you are travelling. If you’re heading to America, tipping is a big part of the culture and is expected when paying your dinner bill, buying drinks at a bar, and even getting a taxi. However, if you were heading to Japan, tipping would be seen as impolite. In most parts of Europe, leaving a tip of around 5 - 10% of the total bill is the standard, although make sure you check the bill first, as a tip may have already been included in the total cost of the bill. It’s generally worth reading up on the tipping culture of the region you are travelling to prior to your trip, or just ask your Trip Manager what the general etiquette is once on trip.

In terms of tipping Contiki staff and Local Guides, this is entirely up to you and is not compulsory. If you think a Trip Manager, Driver or Local Guide has done an awesome job, you may wish to tip them for this, but this is at your discretion and no one else’s. Tip what you think is right only.

WHAT SHOULD I TIP SERVICE STAFF?

This depends entirely on the tipping culture of the country you are in. Read up on what’s expected prior to your trip or ask your Trip Manager if you are unsure, and also be careful not to over or under tip as a result of currency confusion. Downloading a currency converter app like XE Currency App will help with this.

WHAT SHOULD I TIP CONTIKI TRIP MANAGERS AND DRIVERS?

Tipping of Contiki Trip Managers and Drivers is completely optional and not mandatory. If you think your Contiki crew have delivered an outstanding level of service throughout your trip you may wish to tip them, but this is at your discretion and no one else’s.

Tonight is the night we come together to award the best in our business and bust a move or two on the dance floor. 

This year’s theme will be TIGHT, WHITE and/or BRIGHT!

This is your chance to party like you’re on a Contiki…. With 50 of your best friends.  Nothing is too outrageous… the more you stand out the better!  We want to see you in your brightest, most colourful, most wonderful imaginative outfits you can think of.   After all on Contiki you need to be pretty resourceful when it comes to putting together an Epic costume for the night… we expect big things because you have a month to plan it.

BUT FIRST IT'S TIME TO NOMINATE SOMEONE UNDER THE FOLLOWING CATEGORIES

  • CONTIKI SPIRIT – YOU ARE THE CONTIKI VALUES
  • CONTIKI CHALLENGER – CHAMPION OF INNOVATION
  • CONTIKI ALL STAR – YOU ARE CONTIKI, A TEAM PLAYER, GOAL DRIVEN, AND YOU ALWAYS GO ABOVE AND BEYOND!
  • CONTIKI PEOPLE LEADER OF THE YEAR – THIS IS FOR AN UP AND COMING LEADER (NOT FOR THE SENIOR LEADERS) WHO HAS GONE ABOVE AND BEYOND TO DEVELOP THEIR TEAM AND SMASH SOME GOALS

Plus on the night we will be announcing Contiki’s Call Centre Sales Champion, as well as Sales Rep of the Year. The prizes are HUGE (free trip anyone?), so please include sufficient detail for each nomination.

Please submit your nominations by Friday 1 June.
