Tip the Usher in Paris

Tip The Usher in Paris
No matter the season, we long for vacation time and visiting with friends and family. You may already have hotel rooms booked, plane tickets sitting on the counter, and now you’re counting the days until you can jet away.

I once heard that during the summer months in France, there are actually more visitors than people who live there.

I have had the good fortune to have traveled extensively over the years. Even though we live in a global economy, things are usually different in other cultures—that’s often why we go in the first place—and it’s imperative that we take our good travel manners with us. It will make a difference in the experience you have while on the road.

Here’s an interesting thing to know while traveling in Paris. If you’re able to get tickets to a performance at the Opéra National de Paris, then it’s customary to tip the usher who shows you to your seat. Plan on at least one euro per person; you will be pleased at the results—and happy you knew this custom.
