Tipping in IstanbulMoney
Tipping is a custom that changes from country to country even from city to city. And it's better to know the customs of tipping in Istanbul if you're going to visit the city.
Tip in Turkish is called Bahşiş.
In most of the hotels and restaurants service is not included in the bill, and you should calculate and leave a Bahşiş of around 10% for most services, and 15% in finer dining establishments if the service warrants it. Also keep in mind to tip the bellboys carrying your luggage in the hotels.
In general, the right kind of tipping is an important custom in Istanbul like in general of the country.
Keep in mind that tipping to taxi drivers is not the custom in Turkey.
