Tipping is voluntary in Portugal and is considered a sign of satisfaction with the service. Tipping in Portugal is around 10% in restaurants. For taxi rides, you can round up the final amount. As in some southern countries, the tip in Portugal is left on a small plate or on the table. It is considered extremely impolite to leave small amounts such as two or five cent pieces. The legal minimum wage in Portugal is very low. Tipping is therefore a helpful additional income for many.



If there is a communal tip box at reception for all staff, you can also leave a tip at the end of your stay.
