What is the protocol concerning gratuities for Onboard Hosts?

In North America, gratuities are often given in recognition of service excellence. Gratuities are not included in prices for Rocky Mountaineer Hosts, driver guides, tour escorts or hotel porters. If you are travelling on an escorted tour, we recommend checking with your Tour Director to confirm the amount of gratuity that may have been included in your tour package.

The following is provided to assist our guests, but we leave the decision to provide a gratuity for Rocky Mountaineer Hosts entirely at their discretion.  All gratuities are in Canadian dollars.

GoldLeaf Service: Our past guests have left gratuities based on their overall service experience ranging from $80 to $100 per couple ($40 to $50 per guest) for a two day onboard experience, which is shared between the Hosts and Culinary Team in your coach.

SilverLeaf Service: Our past guests have left gratuities based on their overall service experience ranging from $70 to $90 per couple ($35 to $45 per guest) for a two day onboard experience, which is shared between the Hosts in your coach.
