Visitors to America get astonished by the number of workers who are used to getting tips. They keep wondering on the amount of the tip that they ought to give. This has resulted from some Americans who visit other countries and give tips excessively. To avoid any social embarrassment, it is good to research on tipping etiquette.
How to tip in the UK.
People in the UK do not tip on many things like the Americans. Mainly, tips are given in restaurants, bars, and clubs. Failure to tip in these places at times could make the workers feel that the service was not satisfying enough. In some cases such as an organized party, a service charge is usually added to the cost. This serves as a tip. One would be considered as rude if he or she fails to pay that tip.
Tipping is not expected in some cases, such as a taxi service. Tipping in such a case would be done more casually, such as by rounding off the money to a denomination that is close, in a higher value. Other places other than the hotel do not require tips in a big way. A hairdresser, for example, does not require a tip in a big way. You can, however, tip the worker by telling him or her to keep change.
Tips in Italy.
Italy has incredible working staff and restaurant services in Italy are unbeatable. Italians, however, do not have a tipping culture. Italians rarely use the online tipping calculator. This is even after services that are special, such as special hotel services. One might, however, round off the bill due to generosity, or if it is convenient to do so. The workers in most times do not expect the tip. The reason why tipping in Italy is not considered a culture in Italy is because waiters are professional, respectable, and get a good job. Since Italian waiters are professional, they give their services in a good way without expecting a tip.
India has grown a lot in the market, and had a lot of visitors from Europe and the USA. This has resulted in a tipping practice increase in India. When the service is excellent in India, you give a tip of about 5 and 10 percent.
Tipping in Japan.
In Japan, people who have good services retreated with respect, but are rarely given tips. Tips are not taken as an offense since people there are very exposed to the western culture.
