Travel websites designed to enhance the tourism experience often comment on airlines, restaurants and hotels, but the Tipping Etiquette infographic offers advice on the variety of tipping protocols in countries across the world that will simplify your dining experience. The world map outlines the tipping amount that is customary in popular travel destinations including Canada, France, Brazil, China, Egypt and Australia. Additionally, it offers information on whether included gratuities are customary and a detailed breakdown of tipping protocol in the US across various services and locations.

Every traveler knows that customs and cultures vary in each country, so do tipping habits and expectations. This infographic is a great tool for avoiding any potentially awkward moments with your server. The Tipping Etiquette Infographic shows that North America has some of the highest tip percentages with the U.S and Canada at 15-20%. This is comparable to popular travel spots in South East Asia, where there is no tipping, unless you have been given “exceptional or luxurious service.”
