    tipping is part of the deal.

    if you can't afford to tip, you can't afford to go.

    and if you simply don't tip, you will get sh*tty service if any at all.

    but if someone refuses to give you service until a tip is produced, or points at the tip jar, etc... then you just go somewhere else.

    summed up in one sentence, although if your getting a table for example then deffo tip the waiter beforehand, if it's just a free bar then tip once have got your 1st drink, tip fairly well though because that way you will be remembered.

    I remember last year, i tipped a waiter quite well when he gave me my 1st drink, after that whenever he saw me coming to the bar her got my drinks prepaired before i even got there and if he was busy he got one of his work mates to do it. Considering most of the clubs are rammo out there to get a decent and quick bar service TIP AWAY.

    I can't stand tight ass people who don't even want to give a $ tip. That is 5o- 60p That is like a kit kat, not even the chunky one. LOL

    I'd rather have $5 in my wallet than in someone else's for carrying my bag 5 yards to the coach.

    You have to draw the line at tipping for good/ anticipated service and just plain and simply been ripped off.

    True, but I am not talking about luggage, if people don't want to pay, simply use the arms that you were given. I am talking about in the bars.

    VERY true ian!! If I get good service or a service I expect to get, I will tip where need be. I refuse to tip every drink especially when I am staying at an ALL INCLUSIVE resort! I will tip here and there, especially when they are working hard, but not every drink.
