Flying Domestic in Scandinavia For Less
Submitted by M09434
Scandinavia is a large territory. Going from "A" to "B" in a country like Sweden, Norway and Finland can sometimes take a whole day and even more if you travel by car or by train. Scandinavian Airlines (SAS) offers most of the domestic flights there, but sometimes at prices that makes a A-B trip as expensive as flying from Copenhagen to New York!

So a number of small good quality low cost airlines have sprung up all over Scandinavia. They often leave from the airports that are right in the ... view more city centers (main airports in Scandinavia are usually located about 40 min-1 hour from city centers) and some include free catering on board for economy class, something SAS has long banned from its planes.
Gratuity & Service Charge Tips
Submitted by M08364
Hotel and restaurant service charges are included in tour prices where indicated. End of trip gratuities to the tour escort and driver are left to the discretion of each tour participant. Tipping in service establishments is not a widespread custom in Scandinavia as service charges are normally included in the bill, but the tipping of small amounts to service personnel is becoming more prevalent.
Meal Tips

Scandinavian breakfasts are included in all hotel rates and tours and are normally served buffet style. Choices of cereals, eggs, cold cuts, cheese, breads, juices, coffee, tea are the norm. When lunch/dinner is included in the itinerary, it is normally a three course meal with a choice of two different entrees or served buffet style. Side orders and beverages are not normally included.
