7 Important Factors to Consider When Tipping a Valet Parking Attendant

Nowadays, it has become normal for people to tip individuals working in certain types of services. A good example is the hospitality industry where you can find yourself tipping a waiter who has gone out of his/her normal professionalism to give you quality services that even exceed your expectations. If you are extremely impressed with the quality of service that the waiter has given to you and your guest, you can tip the waiter according to the quality of services rendered. The same scenario can also happen if you are impressed with the quality of service rendered by a valet parking attendant.

So the big question is, how much money should you tips a valet parking attendant if you are extremely impressed with the services rendered? In this article, we are going to give you tips on important factors to consider when tipping a valet parking attendant.

1. Make sure that you are extremely impressed with the quality of service rendered

This is a very important factor to consider before you consider tipping a valet parking attendant. Remember that the main of tipping the valet parking attendant is to congratulate him/her for quality services that he/she has rendered. By tipping the valet attendant, you are actually telling him/her to keep up with his/her work. It is therefore very important to ensure that you tip the valet attendant according to the quality of service rendered. Refrain tipping the valet attendant for no good reason because you will make him/her think that he/she has offered quality service but in reality he/she has not. Tipping a valet parking attendant is optional. If you decide to do so, then make sure that the valet offers quality and satisfactory services.

2. Just tips even if there is a parking fee

Some people usually tip only if there they are not charged a parking fee. That should not be the case. Regardless of whether there is a parking fee or not, you should just tip the valet parking attendant if you are extremely impressed with the quality of service rendered. When you tip the valet, you are not doing so because you have not been charged a parking fee but you are doing so to show your appreciation for the quality of services rendered to you.

3. Don’t be extra generous

It’s okay to be generous when tipping a valet parking attendant but you should not be too generous. Experts recommend that you should tip between S$ 5-10 depending on how you like the quality of service rendered. On the other hand, if you tip to much more than the recommended rates, the valet may become too excited to point where he/she may wrongly interpret your intentions.

4. It is okay to tip on drop off and during pick up

If you want to tip the valet parking attendant during drop off and pick up, then you are at liberty to do so. Most drivers usually prefer to tip valets during pick up but there are some who also like to tip both during drop off and pick up. There are no written rules in this scenario. This means that you can tip at pick up, drop off, in either cases or none at all depending on your preference.

5. Tip more if the valet help you with the luggage

If the valet parking attendant goes out of his/her way to even help you with the luggage, then you are at liberty to tip him/her more. If the valet takes his time and assist you with your luggage up to your destination point, then there is no reason why you should not tip a few more dollars than the recommended tipping rates. In addition to that, if you want the valet attendant to park your car at certain designated parking spot, you should also go out of your way to tip the valet more because you are asking for additional favor from the valet. In other words, if the valet goes out of his/her way to perform extra task for you, you should also go out of your way to tip him/her more.

If you have busy working schedule, you may sometimes find out that that have forgotten important document that is needed urgently in your car. In that case you may need the service of a valet attendant to help you get the needed document within the shortest time possible. If that

is the case, then you need to tip the valet attendant more for extra service that he/she has rendered to you. If you happen forget something in your car, the valet will have to bring it back to you so that you can collect the documents that you have forgotten. As a results, you should tip him/her more for extra work rendered.

7. Remember that it is not mandatory to tip at all time

Tipping valet attendant for quality services that he/she has given to you is a show of gratitude. However, it is important to note that you are not compelled to always tip the valet parking attendant. It is not a mandatory obligation meaning that you should only tip if you are in a position to do so. If you don’t have cash at that particular time, don’t feel indebted because you are not.

In conclusion, tipping a valet parking attendant is not bribing. Instead, it is a show of gratitude for the quality of service rendered by the valet parking attendant. However, as discussed above, tip should only be given if you are extremely impressed with the quality of service that the valet parking attendant has rendered. That includes the valet going out of his way to attend to your special needs. In addition to that, tipping is not mandatory meaning that you should not feel compelled to do so. The amount of tip given should depend on the amount of service rendered.
