How much should you tip?

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- Planning on taking a trip or heading out to eat can be fun, but maybe not so much when it comes time to figure out how much to tip.

If you're at a restaurant:
  • Tip the waiter 18 percent for good service
  • Tip the waiter 20 percent for excellent service

At an airport and someone helps you with curbside check-in:
  • Tip $3 to $5 per bag

When taking a cab, Uber or Lyft:
  • Tip 10 percent to 15 percent for rides
  • Tip 20 percent if you have a lot of luggage or luggage over 50 pounds

When visiting a hotel, the rules tend to vary:
  • Do not tip the doorman
  • Tip the bellman $1 to $2 per bag
  • Housekeepers should be tipped at least $5 everyday. After all, they are the ones that keep your room looking perfect.

When trying to tip the hotel concierge:
  • If they help you with directions, there is no need to tip
  • If they set up reservations or reserve ticket for you to a show, you should tip between $5 and $10
