TripAdvisor ran a recent survey in the UK, France, Italy and Spain, asking travellers what they knew about tipping etiquette abroad. The British came out as the worst with 60% saying they had no idea what they were supposed to tip in foreign countries, compared to the European average of 45%.
We also asked them what type of service motivated them to tip. For UK participants it was helpfulness of service, for the French and the Spanish it was friendliness of service and for the Italians it was politeness of service.
