Survey suggests Ontarians are confused about tipping etiquette

Ontarians may know a lot of things, but one thing they’re unclear about is tipping. At least, that’s what a recent survey is suggesting.

According to TD Canada Trust and its First Class Travel International Etiquette Poll, 77 percent of Ontarians plan on travelling this summer, but more than half of them aren’t sure about tipping etiquette.

The poll found that 58 percent said they weren’t clear on what qualified as a good tip. Some respondents admitted that it’s proven to be so much of a conundrum, it’s left them feeling confused and stressed at times.

The survey also found that 29 percent of respondents planned on travelling outside of the country this year. For those that have traveled outside of Canada in the past, 38 percent of Ontarians said they typically tip service providers the same amount they give at home.

While tipping may prove to be a source of frustration for Ontarians, it should never enter the equation at Jiffy Self Storage. By purchasing a storage unit with our company, renters have our expert self storage staff at their disposal for all their advisory needs at no extra charge.
