The world has quite different countries in it, which means there are also quite several tipping customs.
It is essential to understand how to make your tip in any of the countries you visit lest you leave the people who served you angry wherever you go.
Below are some crucial guidelines on how to go about tipping round the world.
In Brazil, it is always a 10% standard service charge that is still added to your total bill, and this practically means that you will not be required to tip again.
However, if you feel generous, you can give an extra tip of 5-10%, which will make your server feel very happy. You should ensure that you do it in the most subtle of ways as Brazilians do not make big shows for this.
Israel, the Teller Tipping, here is a straight thing fought forward 10-13%. These services types of service need to have more widespread awareness.
Keep this in mind so you can prevent double tipping.
Dubai Restaurants here have to charge an extra 10% as gratuity in all the bar and restaurant bills. You can add some dirhams to them if you so wish. This is usually highly appreciated since hawkers are not paid so much here.
Germany Bars and restaurants in Germany have to include gratuity to what one owes, but that is not all you will have to pay. Rounding the bill to the nearest euro is customary here, and it ranges from 5-10%.
When it comes to settling your bills in Germany, the waiter usually informs you how much you have to pay. This often includes the tip, and the cash is handed over to the waiter.
In The Czech Republic, the locals here do not leave tips, but that does not mean you are also free to leave without tips.
Tourists from foreign nations are expected to leave some form of a tip for the services you receive as long as you are in an area like Prague, which is a high tourist area.
The standard tip is usually 10%, but you should not misinterpret the curtness in the servers as rudeness.
India You can tip your server between 5-10% if you liked the service offered. You should, however, adjust this amount with the size of the meal you are taking.
If the bill is for a meal that is quite small that it falls under the 300 rupees slot, give the 10% tip. If the bill is any higher, then you should offer to tip at 5%.
Thailand does not have a strict, strict tipping custom, but it is nice to leave something small for the servers. A tip here is usually appreciated but never asked for at all.
You could either leave the loose change left after clearing your bill completely or opt to give a dollar for every diner at your table.
If the new country you are visiting does not customarily practice the tipping custom, then the servers do not expect any tip at all.
This does not necessarily mean that you are barred from giving them anything. However, the tip you could be offering could be a disturbance to the server instead of being gracious.
COUNTRIES WHERE TIPPING ISN'T A STANDARD PRACTICE
The countries that do not practice tipping include Japan, Italy, New Zealand, Vietnam, Belgium, Australia, Norway, France, Malaysia, Hong Kong, and China.
Me personally, UNLESS it is specifically RUDE to tip, I always tip something if the service is good, as to me, why not pay it forward.
