Tipping?

Off to hurghada next month, and wondered what is expected in the way of tipping.

Do I tip every day or just at the end of the holiday, or just as and when?

also how much and what currency!!

thanks in advance.

tipping is expected in hurghada in restraunts but mainly in the hotel.

i went last year and i was told to tip at the end of each week as this is when the staff change over.

i had 3 cleaners for my room and i gave each 20 le which was the equilivant to £2 each.

they were more than happy with this and when i got back from breakfast they had made some swans and fish using my towel and i had loads of extra soaps etc
