Tipping is often a confusing matter, as culture and customs vary from country to country. Americans are used to tipping significant amounts, but in some parts of the world it is actually not necessary or even frowned upon.
VILLECRESNES, France (PRWEB) December 08, 2020
ExplorationJunkie.com is excited to offer travelers a new interactive tipping guide that provides instant information about how much and whom to tip in almost every country on the planet. The innovative guide allows users to access a color-coded map to quickly see how the practice of tipping is regarded in 238 countries and territories around the world. Exploration Junkie’s offering is distinctive because its map encompasses an unprecedented number of countries. Other tipping-guide maps cover fewer than 100 countries or only major cities, and the largest tipping guide currently available does not contain a map.
The comprehensive tipping guide also offers interesting statistics about how different cultures around the world view tipping, providing immediate cultural insights. It features easy-to-read charts where users can access information in one glance. For example, tipping is not expected but is appreciated in nearly half of the world’s countries and territories; it is customary in about one third of the world; and 21 percent of the world’s countries and territories do not practice tipping.
“You can visualize the percentages of countries and the percentages of the world’s population for which tipping is expected, appreciated, or not necessary,” explains Exploration Junkie Founder, Julien Mordret. “The stats offer nice insights about the world’s tipping cultures, showing how different they can be. One can realize that what feels so natural in the U.S. is not expected at all for a quarter (26 percent) of the world’s population.”
Exploration Junkie’s tipping guide is easy to navigate on a desktop or laptop computer, allowing people to get general tipping etiquette for each country and additional details with a single click. Here’s how it works: Users can mouse over any country on the map to see a summary of the tipping culture in that country. Or they can click on any country on the map to get more detailed information about its protocol for tipping, including whom and how much to tip. As another option, users can also view a text version of a country’s tipping-related information.
The tipping guide is a much-needed resource for international travelers who are looking for no-fluff, straight-to-the point information to facilitate their trip planning. Additionally, it can serve as an invaluable tool that can make traveling go more smoothly. “Tipping is often a confusing matter, as culture and customs vary from country to country,” Mordret says. “Americans are used to tipping significant amounts, but in some parts of the world it is actually not necessary or even frowned upon.”
In addition to offering quick access to tipping etiquette and stats, Exploration Junkie’s guide also provides users with valuable general advice. For instance, it indicates that tipping too much can be as detrimental as not tipping enough, so it is important to adapt to a destination’s customs. When in doubt, travelers should simply ask what tip, if any, is expected. The guide also includes helpful links to other websites users may explore to expand their knowledge further.
