In the U.S., we are used to tipping our waiters and waitresses between 15-20% of the bill but  in many countries around the world, that’s not the norm  Did you know that tipping can be considered an insult in some countries?

In Australia and New Zealand, tipping is not required nor expected so unless service is exceptional, save your money for seeing the sites!
