A few tips for a pleasant trouble-free holiday
  • It is always useful to have a little cash on you at all times for little out-of-pocket expenses like taxi fares to the airport, drinks, etc. Taxis do not always accept credit cards.

  • A service charge is included in the price of each item on the menu in any cafe or restaurant as required by French law. In theory, no further tipping is expected, however, it is common to leave anywhere from 1 euro to a couple euros.
