MINIMAL TIP OF 10% IS STILL EXPECTED BY THE HOTEL STAFF.

IT IS ALSO COMMON TO TIP PORTERS AT AIRPORTS AND HOTELS, AND TAXI DRIVERS.


TAXIS:

BUENOS AIRES HAS AN EXCELLENT TAXI SERVICE, MEETING ALL NEEDS, INCLUDING RUSH HOUR. RATES ARE FIXED AND SHOULD NOT CHANGE DURING EITHER THE DAY OR NIGHT, AS THESE FARES ARE ESTABLISHED BY THE MUNICIPALITY. THE FARES ARE METERED IN ARGENTINIAN PESOS. OTHER CITIES ALSO HAVE ADEQUATE TAXI SERVICES.
