My friend was just about to leave for a trip to Argentina and was asking me about tipping there. Her questions got me thinking about tipping practices around the world and even here in the U.S. I think I have tipping in the U.S. down but, there are a few situations where I still wonder if I need to tip or if I have tipped enough. For example, when you order to-go food; do you tip a percentage of the check or do you tip a few dollars? I was doing some research on this when I came across this awesome guideline cheatsheet on Foder’s Travel. You might want to also browse the actual article because it highlights many different countries and the tipping customs for each, which I found very handy.
