I recently came across this handy …

I thought would be worth passing on.ย ย 

Are you heading away on vacation to a unfamiliar and foreign place, and not quite sure on what the {Expected 💰 Tipping Customs} are, for your chosen destination? ❓

Well, I generally don’t concern myself too much with this and normally just use a standard percentage. But if you are traveling to Asia for example, you may want to have a closer look.ย 

First, check out this short 📹 video on tipping from one of my favorite – Travel Experts.

Tips Satisfactory Service Rendered – Global Tip Chart Recommendations

When I travel, I do like to leave a Tip (Gratuity), when I am satisfied that I have received service worthy of one in the first place.

After years of travel and working in the service industry, I know how important {Tips} are to most service industry workers around the world.

I do however, expect to receive ๐Ÿ™‚ Service With a Smile, ๐Ÿ™‚ before I even think of leaving a tip!

World English Dictionaryย 

Dictionary Picture

➡ A gift or reward, usually of money, for services rendered; tip

➡ Something given without claim or obligation

A gift or reward for services received. If I do not receive a service with satisfactory results, should you still have to pay a reward for poor service?

In My Opinion … Absolutely Not!

If you do receive that service favorably, then yes!ย 

If customary, you should tip what is appropriate for that country.ย 

I always suggest to include gratuities in their travel budget, especially on those …ย

Global Tip Chart & Gratuity Guidelines

Have a quick look at the 📊 chart below, that offers a simple guide to tipping for a number of countries around the world.

It focuses generally on the {Three Most Common Services} one would normally use when traveling.

Restaurants … Accommodations … Taxis

Global Tip Chart

As you can see from the next chart below, the country to pay particular attention to is –Asia.

It appears that Japan and China are the two nations to watch for, as their local customs may consider this to be rude in some parts.

If in doubt, always ask a local at your hotel, a shop or business you may be visiting.

Gratuity Guidelines

On one of our pastย …

🌅 Family Holidays to Thailand, 🌅
we found that tipping was common throughout the country, and greatly appreciated as well!ย 

A very small tip even in their local currency, goes a long way in Thailand.ย This especially so, if you are returning to that favorite restaurant or bar over and over! ๐Ÿ™‚

Tip Etiquette For Other Services Rendered

Along with the services mentioned in the chart above, there a few other very common services provided when traveling, that do and should be worthy of tipping. For example …

✔ Bellhops and/or Porters

✔ Chambermaids and / or Cabin Attendants

✔ Tour Guides

✔ Tour Bus Drivers

These are just a few of the more common services that you are likely to encounter on your holiday or business travel, that should be considered in your tipping budget.ย 

Again, if you are satisfied with the level of service received, a small gratuity helps these individuals greatly!

I always try to deliver my gratuity to these types of individuals directly or in person.

This, so I am absolutely sure this person is receiving my gratitude and not someone else by mistake, or otherwise.ย  As well, I always try to carry a few small bills in my pocket at all times. This way, I am prepared to leave a tip and not be caught empty handed, which can be embarrassing at times. ๐Ÿ˜•

Final Thoughts Banner

One last note on tipping and also listed in the charts above. Be sure toย look at your service bills carefully!ย 

What seems to be occurring more frequently, is service charges are automatically added to your bill.ย This is something I have run across many times, for a number of different types of services, especially during our most recent travels.
