Is it customary to tip in Paris

Answered By: Angel Price Date: created: Dec 27 2021

Tipping in Paris. There is no fixed amount but if you wish to leave a tip for good service, most round the check up – such as if the check is €18, you can leave €1-2, or for a €1,20 coffee, you can leave €1,50. But when in doubt, around 5% is considered fine, or up to 10% if you’ve had exceptional treatment.

How much do you tip in French restaurants

Anywhere from 2-5 euros is customary for a meal in a restaurant. If the service was really good or if you’re a table of more than 5 people 10 euros or more is normal. There is no need to tip for every single drink in a bar or in a fast food restaurant.

Tipping in Paris or anywhere else in France is not an obligation, so what you leave is entirely left to your discretion. If you receive rude or subpar service, you may decide not to leave a tip at all. Servers in Paris will rarely come to tables to ask guests “How things are going?”

Is it rude to speak English in France

Answered By: Ryan Price Date: created: Feb 23 2022

It’s a myth the French won’t speak English

However most will be able to muddle through the transaction with you in at least basic, and sometimes very good, English. This is because English is the standard language of tourism in Europe. If English isn’t your native language, brush up before boarding the plane.

How do you ask for the bill in France

Answered By: Alex King Date: created: Aug 06 2021

French manners: Getting the bill in French

At the end of the meal, you should get the server’s attention again with a simple ‘excusez-moi’ and to ask for the bill specifically, it is ‘l’addition s’il vous plait’. If they bring it over straight away after the meal, do not think of it as rude.

How much cash should I bring to Paris

Answered By: Jason Miller Date: created: Oct 16 2021

400 euros should be sufficient. You don’t want to be stuck with a lot of euros at the end of your trip, and then have to exchange them at a bad rate. (Alternative: a stop at the airport gift shop.) You can use a credit card to pay for just about all the attractions you mention in your post.

You should also avoid walking at night time on the Barbes Boulevard, the Forum des halles and the Seine banks (by the river; up the street is fine). Most Paris suburbs are safe enough, but don’t go to St Denis, La Courneuve, or Mantes-la-Jolie unless you want to see what a French ghetto is like.

Paris is safe at night. It is safe on the Metro at night too. It’s a big city so keep an eye out for pickpockets. The only way to avoid pickpocketing is to not be a walking buffet.
