Tipping In Algeria goes a long way when exploring the diverse country. Algeria is home of ancient ruins and holds a great portion of the Sahara desert. While traveling should be done with caution it still is a lovely country to see and explore. Since the wages are so low tipping is appreciated in Algeria. Use our guide to figure out when you should and shouldn’t tip.
Taxis: You will likely pre-negotiate your fare. If you do then a tip isn’t needed. However, if the driver is helpful then round up to the nearest 5-10 DA.
Hotels: You should tip the maid about 90-100 DA a night. You should leave this on the pillow as you may have another maid each day. For bell hops you should tip them about the same per bag.
Restaurants: You should tip 10% of the total to the waiter.
Bars: Though you might not see many bars, you should tip also 10% of your total to the bar tender.
Other: If you take a guide on any part of your trip you should tip him about 10-15% as well based on the experience. Because of the exchange rate and low wages tipping shouldn’t hurt the wallet to much.
