Tipping In The USA, The UK, Italy, India, and South America.
People who visit America get surprised by the number of workers who are accustomed to getting tips. They wonder on the amount of a tip they should 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 tips are done in the UK.
People in the UK do not tip on many things like the Americans. Tips are usually given in clubs, bars and restaurants. A customer who fails to tip in these areas is considered as one who was not satisfied by the service. In some cases such as an organized party, a service charge is usually added to the cost. This serves as a tip. Failing to do this is taken as being rude.
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. Tips in other areas than the hotel are not required in a big way. For the case of a hairdresser, for example, you do not have to pay the tip necessarily However, one can tell the person providing the service to keep change.
Italy has professional services in restaurants. Italians, however, do not have a tipping culture. It is very rare for you to see Italians using a tip calculator online. This is even with the good 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 is considered not to be a culture in Italy is that being a waiter is considered a professional job with a good pay. Since Italian waiters are professional, they give their services in a good way without expecting a tip.
Tipping in India.
The development in India has resulted in it getting many USA and Europe visitors. This has resulted in a tipping practice increase in India. Tips are given when you were served totally well, and you tip around 5 and 10 percent.
People in Japan treat those who serve them well with respect, but tips are not common. Tipping is not considered as a bad thing in Japan, because many people are exposed to the western culture.
South American Tips.
If a tip is expected in the South American countries, it is usually added to the bill. The tip might be 10 to 15 percent depending on the place.
