The amount that you tip will vary greatly by the currency of the country you’re traveling in, but here are a few pointers for specific roles that help you with your luggage.
Unlike the check-in counters, you should tip the curbside baggage handlers because they usually have shorter lines, print your boarding passes, and then bring your luggage to the baggage desk. A few dollars per bag is sufficient.
Don’t worry about tipping the baggage handlers if you gate check your bag.
Tip them nada, just shower them with your gratitude. But don’t take advantage of them! You should be able to manage your own bags.
If you’re checking out or waiting to check in and need to store your bags at a hotel, one dollar per bag is enough to tip. But don’t bother when it comes to hostels.
The same goes for the amount you tip the employee who brings your bags to your room. One to two dollars is fine.
