This has resulted from some Americans who visit other countries and give tips excessively. For one to get rid of embarrassments, it is good to familiarize themselves about tipping habits in different countries.
How tips are done 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. Failing to tip in these places are treated as dissatisfaction with the service by the customer. Tips are usually added on the service cost, especially in some cases such as organized parties. This serves as a tip. One would be considered as rude if he or she fails to pay that tip.
There are some cases where tipping is not expected, such as after getting a taxi service. In this situation, tipping is done in casual forms, such as rounding off the amount of the cost to the nearest higher denomination. 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, tell the service provider to keep change.
The services in Italy restaurants are incredible. Italians, however, do not have a tipping culture. You will rarely find an Italian using an online tipping calculator. This is even with the good services. Rounding off the bill sometimes happens but is determined as an act of convenience or generosity. The workers rarely way for a 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 waiters are professional, they know how to offer a service best without expecting a tip.
