How much do you tip a travel agent?

Actually, it is not at all customary to tip money to your agent as tip. But, if you want to give your agent some gift, give him or her positive review. That would be far better than money, which might look bad or hurt someone’s dignity. The best gift that you can give your agent is new business. So, if your agent has done a wonderful job tailoring you a personalized vacation, do refer. If you have any friend or any familiar person going on a trip, refer to your agent. If your agent or the agency he or she works for has a website, write good reviews mentioning the unique things that one can hope for while travelling with them. Mention the aspects your agent might go some extra miles to make your travel free of hazards or to make your vacation days a bit more fun.
