Tips on Tipping Around the World
The truth is, tipping rules vary by country, by region, and by scenario. A modest rounding up of the check may be fine in some places and insufficient in others.
A few small bills left on a night table might be gladly picked up by housecleaning staff in one hotel and scrupulously shunned elsewhere.
Such uncertainties can throw an uneasy shadow over even the most exhilarating jaunt in a new land.
That’s why Conde Nast Traveler has spelled out guidelines for the most common tipping situations in 50 countries, from Switzerland to Singapore in Etiquette 101: Your Guide to Tipping Around the World

Additional charges now apply to budget and sale rates on most airlines for a carry-on bag, checked baggage and advance seat assignments. The least expensive fees are charged when these options are purchased during the ticket booking process. Fees climb higher after flights are reserved and even higher when adding these options at airport check-in. Kayak offers the most up-to-date Fees Chart for all domestic and international airlines.
