Pre-Paid Tipping

You can now include pre-paid tipping in your guided tour purchase. You pay for your tipping up front, we handle the rest, and you can cross one more thing off your to-do list. No more running to an ATM at the last minute on tour, or carrying around cash you won’t spend.

About Tipping & Pre-Paid Tipping Packages

Whilst tipping may not be expected in Australia, in most other countries you will visit it is customary to tip. This is a way of thanking and rewarding the staff that looked after you on your tour.

From the 1st of January 2020, Collette is pleased to offer a pre-paid tipping option for guests travelling after 1st May 2020. This allows guests to purchase the package up to 45 days prior to departure and know that all tipping is covered.

The package covers tips to your tour manager, coach driver, porterage, local guides and on-board gratuities for cruises. It does not include tips for any additional options or extensions with Collette. It also does not include any activities you do without the tour group.

The tipping package will vary due to tour length and inclusions. A classic style tour will cost approximately $11 per person, per day and Small Group Explorations style tour will be approximately $14 per person, per day. An additional $3 per person will be added for each additional guide that the tour may include. Please contact our reservations team to find out exactly how much the pre-paid package will cost for your tour.
