In many countries around the world, tips are included in the bill. This is true for the Czech Republic, France, Hungary, and Spain. On average, it’s about 10-15% of the bill. However, this rule doesn’t work for all European countries. In Austria, tips are only given to waiters who do their job well. And there is an unwritten rule in Austria: if a customer has asked for their bill 3 times and never receives it, they can leave the restaurant without paying.
When going on a trip, experienced tourists learn information about the etiquette rules and the sights of the country they are going to visit. Because if you don’t know the subtleties of the rules that the locals have, you might find yourself in an awkward situation. For example, you might insult a French man if you use the “Okay” gesture with him. And if you eat a hamburger with your hands in Chile, nobody will sit next to you.
GIGGAG wants to keep you safe from these situations with this article about the etiquette rules every tourist should know.
