Hi,
I know different countries have different expectations or customs regarding tips. Do you know about tipping here? Is it customary to tip in addition to taxi fare and what percent is average? How about at restaurants?
TIA

15% is the standard tip rate and almost all restaurants & bars will automatically add the 15% to your bill. So check the bill for the auto-gratuity before adding any amount to the additional gratuity line.

Taxis are a 10%-15% standard tip.
