The wife and I will be celebrating our 30th anniversary next week in Aruba. I can not believe that we let nine years race by since our last trip to "one happy island". Since it has been a while since our last visit we have a few questions and ask the members of this forum for their advice.
1. What is an appropriate tip for a cab driver?
2. What would be the total charge for a cab from the airport to to the Radisson , including fare, 2 bags and tip.
3.Are American Express travelers checks still widely used?
4. From what I can gather by reading this forum it is common practice for restaurants to include the gratuity in the
check in the form of a service charge of 15 or 20 percent. Is it customary to add a few dollars by "rounding up"
as they do in Europe for outstanding service ?
5. We will be leaving for home shortly past noon on Saturday,considering the long lines at all airports these days, how
much time should we allow ourselves to get through customs and security.
Thank you in advance for any and all suggestions .
