Americans and Canadians, leave your tipping practices at home

Jump to last reply

If you have never been to Europe or haven't been in a while and forgot, you don't tip as you are required to back home. There will be no tipping jars at stores or ice cream parlors( an old word, yes, I know). You wont have to tip any taxi drivers either. The most you might tip is a euro or two for dinner and that is only if you really want to or if your guilty North American conscience is nagging you. Even though the exchange rate is better than it was, its not wonderful and things are generally much more expensive in a lot of European countries. Save your money and take a break from tipping. I know we have been conditioned to do so and its a mortal sin not to in the US and Canada but we can adapt.
